Dairy-Free Fluffy Whipped Cream

This is proof you can have your whipped cream and eat it too if you are living a dairy-free lifestyle!  This fluffy luscious coconut whipped cream can take the spotlight in any of your old favorite recipes containing traditional dairy-laden whipped cream.

If you like your whipped cream on the sweeter side feel free to add some raw honey, raw coconut nectar or pure maple syrup.  We generally do not sweeten ours because we usually incorporate it with lattes, berries and desserts which are already naturally sweet.

Dairy-Free Fluffy Whipped Cream

Ingredients:

Instructions:

  • Open the can of coconut cream and place only the solid contents into a glass mixing bowl.  Set aside and reserve any liquid within the can for another recipe.

  • Use the whipping tool with your hand mixer to beat the solid coconut cream until light and fluffy which usually takes about 2 minutes.

  • This can be prepared ahead of time and will keep its form.  Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

According to Dr. Oz, coconut fats have a surprising amount of health benefits.  Coconut sources are rich in the saturated fat lauric acid which assists with cholesterol management and thyroid function.  Another bonus is that these fats have been shown to balance weight as a result of the medium chain triglycerides leading the liver to a state of efficient energy burning.  (1)

A study from 2009 found that women who consume two tablespoons of coconut oil daily for twelve weeks not only did not gain more weight, but actually had lowered their abdominal fat which is linked to heart problems.  (1)

    I made this whipped cream yesterday and everyone loved it. It barely made it out of the bowl and onto the baked goods because we were all digging our spoon in to try it!

      Hi, I think that is a common joyful by-product of this whipped cream! Glad you all loved it!

    What would you put this whipped cream on besides a spoon shoveled immediately into the mouth?

    1. Jen

      Hi Barb! It would be wonderful atop herbal lattes, s’mores bars and molten chocolate lava cake! Recipe links are attached!

    Licking my lips now! This would be so good with my fruit salad recipe which typically uses Cool Whip. My husband is trying to cut back on dairy because he is having a lot of heart burn so I am trying to learn how to make food that tastes great without dairy products.

      You are an angel, Stephanie. It is so beautiful to witness spouses supporting each other in their journeys. Enjoy and thanks for stopping by!

    WOW….this was great. You can cut your calories quite a bit, but don’t have that oily taste that store bought frozen whip cream has. Very easy to make.

    1. Jen

      Yay, glad you enjoyed it Patricia! 🙂

    Does it matter what brand of canned coconut milk you use?

    1. Jen

      I usually use Trader Joe’s or Edward and Son’s from Iherb.com. I like the Edward and Son’s brand because it is organic and is in a BPA-free can. It is also non GMO!
