Whipped Coconut Cream

Makes 1 1/3 cups, enough for 6 servings
Time 5 min
This is a terrific alternative to dairy whipped cream as a garnish for fruit or desserts. A touch of sugar gives it a nice sweetness, but you can omit that if you like; leave out the vanilla as well, and you'll have a wonderful savory garnish for chilled soups. Watch our how-to video.
Ingredients
  • 1 (15-ounce) can full-fat coconut milk, unshaken
  • 1 tablespoon powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Method

Place the can of coconut milk in the refrigerator until chilled, at least 4 hours. Open the can and spoon the thick layer of coconut cream off with a spoon, leaving the watery liquid behind. (You can save it for use in smoothies, soups or almost anywhere you'd use reduced-fat coconut milk.)

Place the coconut cream in the bowl of an electric mixer and beat until light and airy, about 3 minutes. Beat in sugar and vanilla. Serve immediately, or refrigerate up to 3 days.
