Vegan whipped cream

vegan whipped cream recipe

This delicious, dairy-free whipped cream is a guilt free treat that can be used to top your favorite pies, ice cream or any other dessert. Made with rich coconut cream, pure vanilla extract and calorie-free stevia drops, it may taste even better than the “real” stuff.

Vegan (dairy-free) whipped cream

1 can of coconut cream, refrigerated overnight
Stevia drops (alternatively, this can be substituted by other calorie-free sweetener)
pure vanilla extract

can of coconut cream

The method for preparing this fluffy goodness is pretty simple, all you have to do is whip up all the ingredients together with a mixer. Before I got started I placed my mixing bowl and my whisk in a freezer for about 20 minutes, until thoroughly chilled. I placed the whole can of the coconut cream in the bowl and started mixing it on a low setting. Once the texture became more fluffy I changed the speed to medium-high and slowly added about 10-13 drops of stevia following with about a teaspoon of vanilla extract. Continue to mix for another minute.

I chose to use stevia drops as opposed to artificial sweeter as it is a natural, plant-derived and calorie-free sweetener (no aspartame or sucralose). If you have trouble finding coconut cream, you can also use coconut milk, BUT it cannot be low-fat and it has to be refrigerated overnight. [When using coconut milk for this, once the can is chilled the “fatty” and creamy part of the coconut milk will solidify and separate from the liquid-carefully scoop out the cream, leaving the liquid behind (you can reserve it for a different use, i.e. in your morning smoothie or a protein shake). ]

When kept in an air-tight container, you can keep this in your fridge for several days. Put it in your ice-offee, on your pancakes, whatever you wish! Just a little warning, this whipped cream WILL have a slight coconut flavor.

      Thanks Kira, if you do end up getting, let me know how you liked it. It’s actually much sweeter than sugar.

    I would have never thought to use coconut cream for whipped cream, I have to try this out. I never eat regular whipped cream just because it’s too much dairy and sugar most of the time, so this is a great alternative, great recipe :)

      Yea, I stay away from that stuff too, even when it’s homemade. This is even more creamy and just as tasty ;)
