How to Make Coconut Whipped Cream
Ellen Oléria vence o programa e os preconceitos" , Paraiba. This is my first time making vegan whipped cream and I was wondering about the icing sugar. It only takes a few seconds beyond mixing. For the best success, we have found that Whole Foods Full Fat brand works best. Hidden in the Art".
I tried the Coconut cream pie recipe, but made the mistake of using one can coconut cream and a plastic bottle of same, the latter put out by Real Gourmet. It was homogenized and highly sweetened, and when I finally bothered to look at the ingredients, had a lot of additives.
The pie was still delicious, just too sweet. The stuff by Real Gourmet is meant for making drinks, like coconut daquiris or pina coladas. That was probably the reason for the runniness of your pie. Can we make it yesterday. Just bananas mix all the ingredients to add. Can ask the waitress. Thank u Clare Haradem by Oakview Ln. The higher the amount of coconut extract, the more likely it will whip for you.
It has no thickeners in it, just coconut milk and water, I find it at Safeway. My coconut earths choice-organic had congealed but also had some hardened chunks in it. Has anyone experience this? I have been buying it for years from these great markets. The best thing is that it is all cream…no seperating! Another even better best thing is it tastes great because it comes in a Tetra Pak cardboard box style , no can taste!
The brand I get is usually from Thailand, they have a number of brands at the market I go to Ranch I buy the best price one. The brand in my fridge right now is Aroy-D. But I had no choice since the brand I usually buy was out of stock. I was worried since I thought it might not harden. Im more relieved now thanks to you. Coconuts are hugely expensive here where I live, probably more than 5 dollars for one in a shell.
Do you live in a place where they are cheap? You need to find the closest Asian food market and go there. I always look for ones without all the preservatives and least water content possible. Most of the processed sugars found in this country including powdered sugars are filtered through cow bone char which is how processed sugar gets so white. Here is a good article about it: To get around this, I went a thrift store and bought another electric coffee grinder, a small one. When I need powdered sugar I just add my regular granulated organic sugar in it and after pulsing it a few times it turns into powder.
I just do not want anybody to assume that powdered sugar us automatically vegan, which it may not be. There is organic powdered sugar but it is much harder to find and a lot more expensive.
What about coconut sugar? Does it have to have something done to it before you add it? To be powdered sugar you need to add cornstarch 1C sugar, 1 Tablespoon cornstarch. Which is why powdered sugar behaves differently than sugar, thickening in addition to sweetening. All they have now is organic with no thickening agents. The all nature with no additives is quite tasty for soups and baking or puddings, but really sucks for whip cream substitute.
Regular coconut milk in the store is so expensive and you get so much less per can. I was wondering if anyone has tried or found a recipe to add thickening agents to canned coconut milk to make coconut cream?
It separates and gets all clumped up and is a yucky texture. I have had the exact same problem with the TJs coconut milk lately! I used to make coconut whipped cream with their stuff all the time but lately it has turned putnam clumpy every single time! Anyone know how to make it work?? Is it possible to use a bullet blender to whip the coconut cream?
I imagine I would have to scrape the blender and mix by hand, then start again; or do you think a handheld is the only, or best, way to create the whipped texture? Maybe double check the label for full fat version. Even when I put the cans in the fridge, the fat is not separating and rising to the top. I wonder if using the tapioca will make it work anyway?
Not sure but its frustrating….. What do we do? I might try the tapioca tomorrow and see if it works. Since I discovered using coconut milk as a dairy alternative, I always keep at least two cans in my cabinent. When I want to make some ice cream or whipped cream, I buy two cans at the store and use the two older cans which usually have separated by then.
Usually the ones in the back that look dusty have separated. When the coconut milk gets old, it separates and forms the solid. If you are looking for the separated old coconut milk, shake the can. The old can will not make a slosh noise. You are more likely to find the old cans in the grocery stores, not ethnic markets where people buy them more regularly. Also, choose the more expensive brand, it is likely to be sitting there longer and be separated.
I used to buy coconut milk at chinese stores. They vary by taste and consistency even within the same brand. I am holding it in my hand and shaking it like crazy. There is no splashing sound, seems like it is very thick.
I will definitely try your recipe. Thanks for sharing it, Dana! Do you mean with a young or green coconut or from the brown nut you buy in da store? Gather the dry coconuts that have that dry outer husk. I cut it open with a machete , get out the meat and make my milk. For those in da mainland, just buy those brown coconuts, open with hammer and proceed to make. Picked up this helpful hint from the blog Oh She Glows: Native Forest now puts guar gum in the ingredients and this causes the cream and water to emulsify which is not what we want.
The can must also be full-fat because you will be whipping the solid cream. In summary — look for a full-fat can of coconut milk that does not have guar gum listed on the ingredient list. I have found a no guar gum, non bpa, organic non-gmo brand of coconut milk that is delicious named Natural Value.
Family owned and genuinely good peeps. The fat is there, they offer a light fat too, and it not only tastes as close to my homemade version I have found I make a lot of homemade vegan yummies, including milks , but my body feels good after ingesting it too… Hope this helps… May you be blessed….
Thanks for adding that. To add to what Bea mentioned, you definitely want coconut milk without guar gum which like she said Native Forest now contains.
What I did recently was take the cold cans out of the fridge and pour them into my Chemex with a Chemex filter in place. What you get is a very clear coconut water substance and cream left over at the top in the filter. If you spend a little time stirring it up, you can end up with a very dry coconut cream. I plan on making whip cream with this over Christmas weekend and believe this will work great. It takes a little bit of time so be patient: Also the regular coffee filter may not be as structurally strong, so be careful mixing the mixture with your spoon.
Thanks, Craig, for mentioning the iSi whipper. My coffee shop offers lattes topped with whipped cream, but for the lactose intolerant, we use soy milk instead of real milk.
Unfortunately, we have not been able to find a good commercial brand of non-milk-based whip for these folks. Made this coconut chantilly yesterday and it worked so well and it was delicious. I used the brand Trident if that can help someone. You want the cream from the can of full-fat coconut milk. The cream will rise to the top if enough time has passed in your pantry or on store shelves or if you put it in the fridge overnight. My second try was a success! I learned that the Vitamix might not be the best way to whip this.
If you do use it, watch carefully. Turn your back and the heat from the Vitamix will ruin the cream you should have taken off before you turned your back! What can I use instead? You can sub maple syrup!
Not sure about coconut sugar…I would blend it into a powder if I were you. Maple syrup is delightful. I use about teaspoons. Also, I find that the whipped coconut cream can have a bit of an off taste, but that can be handled by adding vanilla. But, like another poster, I used a can that had been sitting in the fridge for a long time, not just overnight to chill.
Maybe that gave it tons of time to separate. I do this with just a touch of honey or maple syrup or stevia. I imagine the powdered sugar thickens it up a lot more than using a little honey, maple syrup or stevia though. Ours is not as thick, but it is delicious and not too sweet; so it pairs well over a sweeter dessert.
If I could make a brand suggestion for those of you having a hard time with their cans of coconut milk, I used to have that problem until I found the cans that are just pure coconut. I buy mine from the Asian store on a regular basis and never have to worry that some cans will be good and some will not. I use the brand Aroy-D and love it.
I also recently discovered a brand called Savoy that uses pure coconut in the coconut cream, although I have not opened that can yet so I cannot say how the taste it.
Unfortunately it is probably only available in Asian Markets. Usually much cheaper there also as they cater to their own community and not the general public.
Yeah, Aroy D is ridiculously cheap. THIS Has changed my life: Saves money and if I want cream, I have it. This is my first time making vegan whipped cream and I was wondering about the icing sugar. Is there something else I should use? Or am I wrong? Thanks for your help. Beet Sugar may be processed through charred animal bone, thus it would not be vegan.
Try looking for sugar that is marked Kosher as that would be vegan. You could use cane sugar, which is not usually processed in the same way. Use the entire can, no sugar, just a few drops of liquid stevia can also use powdered stevia , and if you want, a few drops of flavoring vanilla, coconut, rum.
How long do you put it in the freezer? Does it ever separate after it sets for a bit? Thanks for the tip: There will be some exceptions but still home made is different. I was trying to make this tonight. And for some reason when I whipped the coconut cream. Any idea what would cause this to happen? Could I use maple syrup to sweeten the cream a bit?
Just may not make a very stiff whipped cream, but mine had lovely soft peaks and was delicious! Yes, I do this and just put a spoonful of honey or maple syrup in the chilled coconut milk fatty part to use as icing on cake or pie.
It is sweet enough but you can add more if you need something super sweet like regular icing is. Thanks so much for figuring this out and posting the recipe! I have the Thai Kitchen coconut milk but have noticed that it has guar gum in it. Is that going to be a problem making this recipe? I would just hate to open up the can to make this recipe and not have it come out right.
Thank you so much for the reply…I will make it let you know how it turned out. I had the same problem as Noelle. What are your thoughts? That is so odd! I am trying to go as clean and raw as much as possible but would love to add this whipped cream to pies and any desserts. What would you recommend? I was hand whipping the cream and powdered sugar and it was coming along really nicely but I turned my back for a second and it curdled!!!
Perhaps it was your coconut milk — it can be kind of finicky sometimes1. Problem with whipping cream or coconut cream it turns to butter or solid like butter when over whipped.
It only takes a few seconds beyond mixing. It will turn solid on you and separate. But it will give off a metallic taste close to bitterness if you use to much over a teaspoon. I forgot to put the coconut cream in the fridge for 24 hours… Can I put it in the freezer for a little while and prepare it? I have the same problem — anyone have an answer? How long does it take to separate in the freezer vs. I made that mistake once, and ugh! I only use Native Forest brand Classic organic coconut milk.
Separates the cream from the liquid easily in the fridge. About half the can is cream. How well does it hold up to heat? I really liked Trader Joes coconut cream. I added cocoa powder and it was delicious. I saw now that they are adding xanthan gum which is considered to be iffy in terms of being a desirable additive. I will try some of the others. Lots of these comments are referring to coconut milk. Coconut milk is good for curries. Coconut cream is different — has a much higher fat content- not nearly as runny and less separation.
My birthday is coming up in September. I am SO making this chocolate cake with the coconut cream frosting! It will only hold up for hours at room temperature. So be sure to leave them unfrosted until serving! The tapioca flour absolutely saved the frosting for me because I had two dud cans!
Did it hold at room temperature for longer time? Did tapioca starch help? Thanks for sharing this recipe and for recommending brands. Thanks Next your queso recipe. Is there any way to make this stay frosting-like at room temperature? Would adding agar powder help it to set? It will stay at room temp for a couple hours! I love this option for those of us who do not tolerate dairy products. I always say that it is about having choices and this shows that you do not always have to do without.
I feel some fluffy white coconut is in my near culinary future! Our goal today was to make the whoopie pies, but our Shop Rite did not have any full fat coconut milk… so we had to figure out a different way to make this whipped cream. We used to following ingredients: We chilled it before dolloping on our whoopie cakes which are amazing, thank you Dana! Let me ask, what is the difference between coconut oil and coconut butter?
Could I substitute coconut butter or coconut oil for the canned coconut cream in the recipe above? Thank you for mentioning the dud part. I thought I made the recipe wrong. Now, I realized that I had a dud can. Back to the coconut drawing board.
I make a frozen Peanut butter pie, and as an experiment turned that recipe into Coconut Cream Pie. Instead of using 16oz of Cool whip or generic whipped topping I make up 2 cans of Coconut Cream.
Use the remaining Fluff to top the pie with toasted Coconut once the pis has set up. Sprinkle in toasted Coconut and anything else that you want to add to it, does great frozen or kept in fridge for days if left that long. A small amount of soap, or oil from something left behind can cause the Coconut cream to fail. Even letting it rest overnight so that everything is the same temperature and ready to be incorporated into Fluff. Cornstarch is also said to help thicken the Fluff but I have never tried it since I have never had an issue with it getting this like Cool Whip when needed.
I slowly heat it in the slow cooker over night then process, filter through net milk bag, save in container until ready to mix into Charger. Hi Dana, this is amazing! I have a question about tapioca starch…can it be eaten raw? I mean, you suggested to put some if the coconut cream is too soft, but my question comes because tapioca starch is suppose to be high in resistant starch which is highly beneficial to feed good bacteria.
Hi Maria, According to barryfarm. Like in the old days of making thick yogurt you would use a coffee filter and a strainer…can you do that process with a can of coconut milk?
I omitted the sugar but did add a little bit of vanilla. Not sure what taste some people have complained about — it tasted like coconut Cool Whip to me! The texture reminded me just like Cool Whip which I used to love as a child! I even put a dollop in my coffee this morning! My local store was out of stock for 2 months, but you better believe I squealed audibly and grabbed 6 cans when I saw it back on the shelves this week!
Rhanks for the recipe! This worked great for me but i did do a few extra steps. I put the whisks and bowl in the freezer for 15 minutes before using them. I made the cream and put it in the fridge for a few minutes but since i wasnt going to serve right away and i also needed to transport my cake! Mine did curdle but I ignored it and it turned out just fine on the cake. I usually dont like the taste of coconut but this was just so good!
What could I use instead of powdered sugar? Can I make this, freeze it, and bring it somewhere to be used within an hour after getting it out of the freezer? Or will it keep firm enough to use after an hour out of the refrigerator? Thank you so much for this recipe. It is so delicious! I added a touch of cornstarch to compensate. Hopefully I will get it right the next time…because there will be a next time ;p. Store them in the fridge lid side up.
Use the oldest first because it will be the most settled. Put a blob of peanut butter and then a blob of coconut cream on top of each slice. I do it one at a time as I pop them in my mouth. A can of coconut cream lasts me a couple of days. To keep it fresh I push a sandwich bag down into the empty part of the can to minimize the amount of air in the can and use a rubber band to seal the bag to the can. Put the bag over the can and then push your fingers down into the can and then put on the rubber band.
The combo of coconut cream, peanut butter and banana is something to behold. Less mess keeping it the can too. Enjoy and leave a can or two of coconut cream on the shelf at Walmart for me. So disappointed when the shelf is bare. I enjoy making coconut whipped cream very much. I try to keep at least 4 cans i the fridge at all times; ready and waiting for whatever I decide to whip up. The last couple of times I have had a problem with little chunks left no matter how long I whip it.
Is there something I can do? HI Dana, I just made a batch and it is delicious! I am planning on serving it tomorrow. Do you have any suggestions on what to do before i serve it? Like should it stay in the fridge until the last minute and should i whip it up again before serving… You mentioned it harden the longer it sits in the fridge.
So simple and easy, my coconut whip cream came out perfect. I had a sprouts brand of coconut cream and left two cans in the fridge for a day and a half to insure speration. In our house we have two rules: This recipe, followed to the t, is perfect!
I made this to top my pumpkin cheesecake, and it turned out quite nice! I used A Taste of Thai coconut milk and it separated nicely. The coconut flavor was a bit strong for me not a bad thing, just not what I was going for I also added about a tablespoon of pumpkin spice. It was delicious, and after letting it set overnight the coconut flavor was less prevalent. My goal was more of a vanilla flavor overall.
Added the pumpkin spice to better suit my cheesecake and lessen the coconut taste Even so, it was still super yummy and easy! This was my first time successfully making a coconut whipped cream and I look forward to trying different brands and tweaking the flavors for various purposes. Will this whipped cream work for that? I used a can of coconut cream from Aldi and it was separated enough to scoop the cream gently from the top after only 8 hours in the fridge.
It might be, but just be careful to open the can cream-side up the way you had it in the fridge. Just leave your cans of coconut milk in the refrigerator until ready to use.
By the way excellent cool whip! Cream settles to the bottom, while liquid sits on the top. Best cool whip substitute ever. Keeps in the fridge very well and tastes even better the next day or so. Just had some on some Costco fruitcake last night which just took it too the next level! Minimalist baker you are amazing and thank you for this recipe.
Maybe some vegan pie, cake, avocado chocolate pudding. Oh yeah the sky is the limit with this one! I think we can make our own coconut cream…. Just made something like that tonight and waiting for the outcome. The Jenny Craig program also provides support to their clients through one-on-one consultations. The consultations are available at more than locations throughout the world, over the phone, or via video chat.
Jenny Craig consultants discuss diet, exercise, and overall well-being, and attempt to provide inspiration for their clients. While the program's initial focus is on the prepackaged, portioned meals that are supplemented throughout the day with fresh fruit or vegetables, its ultimate goal is to wean people off the prepared meals and teach them to make healthy food choices on their own. Jenny Craig is based on portioned meals that reduce daily calorie consumption to between 1, and 1, calories a day.
It also focuses on different ways to exercise, and provides constantly available support from trained professionals. Weight loss goals are determined by the client, and a meal plan and exercise routine is developed with a trained consultant.
Instead of "promising" a certain result, Jenny Craig aims to teach weight loss for long-term success. One of the biggest positive qualities of the Jenny Craig diet is that it is custom-tailored to the client according to their goals, current weight, and body type.
This includes different types of meals that cater to a person's diet restrictions, such as vegetarian or vegan. The one-on-one counseling, whether through the Jenny Craig centers, their toll-free number, or video chat, is another plus. Another big pro for Jenny Craig is the convenience. Meals come prepared and can be delivered directly to your door. In one box, you have your meals ready for the week, and preparations require nothing more than a few minutes in the microwave and a fork.
While convenience may be nice, Jenny Craig's own prepared meals are also a con. They may be more costly than preparing your own meals at home, and months of meals straight from the microwave can become tiresome.
