{Note from Jessica: Today’s post is shared by my sweet friend Renee, author of Raising Generation Nourished. We became friends several years ago and I am continually impressed with her desire to help change the world, starting with our newest generation. Real food has to be core of our health and should start in the womb. Considering this is the first time in history that our children are expected to die before us, something HAS to change. I’m honored to call her a friend. I hope you’ll stop by her site, Raising Generation Nourished, and say hello!}

My friends I’m going to make a confession…

I’m not a fan of the taste of coconut.

{Cue the Real Food Police}

I know it.

It is such an amazing food – so full of benefits and it’s “milk” form is so much easier to digest than regular dairy. I just didn’t grow up with it on my palate at all, and it has taken me some getting used to to, even to get it into my baking!

Dairy Free Coconut Whipped Cream {That Doesn't Taste Like Coconut!}

But when winter rolls around, our raw milk share is decreased and I rely heavily on homemade DIY coconut milk for our “dairy” needs from green smoothies to making coconut milk yogurt and  Thai inspired meals.

I have been hesitant to try coconut whipped cream wondering how “coconut-y” it would taste and last weekend I decided it was time to try it out.

Oh. My. Goodness.

This coconut whipped cream is just heaven. Perfectly creamy…and it does not taste like coconut! When you get some real vanilla bean and almond extract with the warmth of just a splash of real maple syrup…that is where the magic happens!

My girls didn’t even notice it was different than the whipped cream we usually make – one of them thought it was frosting! This really would be creamy enough to frost a cupcake for sure!

Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Put the can of coconut milk into the refrigerator at least a couple hours so that the coconut cream rises to the top and solidifies.
  2. Take the can of coconut milk out of the fridge, flip it over and open it. The coconut cream will now be at the bottom - just pour out the liquid (you can save this to add to a smoothie or popsicles for the kids), and scoop out the coconut cream into a small mixing bowl.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients to the bowl and using a whisk attachment blend until creamy and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
  4. This makes a little over a cup of whipped coconut cream. Leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator for a week. I have found it doesn't even need to be re-whipped! It keeps very well.
