Coconut Milk Whipped Cream Is A Seriously Dessert Game Changer
Coconut milk whipped cream is a game changer for dessert lovers who eat a dairy-free diet yet crave the luxurious texture of whipped cream.
Chill full-fat coconut milk in the fridge overnight, then whip it using a mixer or egg beaters. Add a teaspoon of tapioca starch to thicken and stabilize it if needed.
While it won't taste like traditional whipped cream, adding powdered sugar and vanilla can evoke the same sweetness and add aromatic notes. Avoid using syrups to maintain texture.
Although it won't achieve the same consistency as heavy cream, it still makes a delightful, luscious topping for drinks, desserts, breakfast dishes, and some savory recipes.
Whipped coconut milk should remain airy for a few days, and storing it in the fridge will keep the fats firm. You can experiment with adding spices and other flavorful ingredients.
