W is for Whipped Cream, Coconut Whipped Cream that is.


Hello fellow classmates, I have been on a little vacation and haven't played  Alphabe-Thursdays in  awhile. Mrs. Matlock I hope  I can return without getting my grade docked too much. If you are new here and don't know about the class go here and check it out, you will learn lots of amazing things!

I just discovered the most amazing trick. (I found it here at Karl MacFee's site who got it from Nutty Kitchen)
Do you have milk allergies?
Do you just like the taste of coconut?
All you do is put a jar of full fat coconut milk in the fridge - I use Thai Kitchen Organic.

Next day (or a couple hours later)  open and scoop out the thickened coconut cream that is  on top,

saving the milk in the can to drink or add to a smoothie.



Add a little vanilla and maybe some cinnamon, or honey and whip, whip it good!
 
And tada, you have wonderful delicious milk free whipping cream to put in your coffee or on your strawberries or our favorite - on top of the raspberry and ganache topped cake.


What do you put whipping cream on? In?

  13. What a wonderful link to Alphabe-Thursday's Letter "W".

    I am really excited about this because I really limit my dairy.

    I've tried it before but I never did the chilling thing and so it never whipped up!

    You are awesome!

    Wouldn't this be great on a peach cobbler?

    Thanks for a wildly delicious link!

    A+

  14. My husband and I have often done this, then we moved to Australia and most of the coconut milk, even coconut cream didn't have enough oil to solidify...needless to say we were very disappointed. I was a main staple of ours! We finally did find one small store that carried a different brand that became "whipped creamy". Such differences in quality!

  46. Lisa - it really is a wonderful substitute for whipping cream! Thanks for "looking around!".

    ReplyDelete
  47. I never would have thought that you can actually whip coconut cream! I'm definitely going to have to try this next time a recipe calls for cream. Does it stay whipped after a period of time or do you have to re-whip it?
