How to Make Dairy Free Whipped Coconut Cream/
I love having a dollop of cream with my afternoon tea, but I’m a bit sensitive to dairy so I had to create an easy dairy free alternative that still hits the spot. And here it is, this dairy free coconut whipped cream.
This delicious coconut whipped cream is dairy free, gluten free, processed sugar free, paleo friendly and takes just minutes to make.
What Can I use Coconut Whipped Cream For?
You can enjoy this coconut whipped cream on all of your recipes that you would use regular cream for. You can use coconut cream on tea lattes, to top hot chocolate, milkshakes, scones, cakes and so much more.
If you love tea lattes, you may love this recipe for dairy free coconut chai lattes. Made with aromatic masala chai, coconut milk, coconut cream and a drizzle of smoky maple syrup.
How do you fix Runny Coconut Whipped Cream?
Depending on a few factors such as the room temperature, how long the cream has been refrigerated for and also the brand of cream used, the cream may not be as thick as you would like. There are a few things that you can do to salvage runny coconut whipped cream. Firstly, you can add an extra tablespoon or two of arrowroot powder. Alternatively, a teaspoon of cream of tar tar will help. If you are adding sugar as your sweetener of choice, try adding a tablespoon or two of powdered sugar. A teaspoon of unflavoured gelatine powder can also help thicken runny coconut cream. Once whipped, it’s best to place the cream back in the fridge to set before using.
What Sweetener Should I Use in Coconut Whipped Cream?
You can add any sweetener to coconut whipped cream to give it a touch of sweetness. I like to use honey. You can alternatively use maple syrup or agave. For a sugar free whipped cream you can add a few drops of monkfruit sweetener or stevia. If using sugar, powdered sugar/icing sugar mixes best. Granulated sugar will give a grainy texture to the cream.
How to Make Coconut Dairy Free Whipped Cream from Scratch
Making dairy free whipped cream with a can of coconut cream is so easy to do. It does take a little preparation as I would recommend refrigerating your can of coconut cream at least 24 hours before making the whipped cream. When opening the can of cream, drain out the excess coconut water and just use the cream that sits on top. Whip the coconut cream for a few minutes before adding sweetener, vanilla and arrowroot, then whip for a few minutes more. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for 5-7 days and enjoy with afternoon tea.
1 Can of Full Fat Coconut Cream
1-2 Tablespoons of Light Honey (agave, maple syrup or monkfruit sweetener)
1 Tablespoon of Arrowroot Powder
1 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
Pop the can of coconut milk, upside down, in the fridge for at least 24 hours.
When you are ready to make your coconut whipped cream, open the can, drain out the excess coconut water and spoon the cream into a mixing bowl.
Using an electric mixer, whip the coconut cream for about 2-3 minutes.
Next add the light honey, vanilla extract and arrowroot powder, then continue to whip for a further 2-3 minutes.
Spoon on your fav lattes, hot chocolates, milkshakes, afternoon tea treats and more :)
