whipped coconut cream

Last night, before nodding off to sleep with a cookbook in hand, I read “whipped coconut cream.” What? First of all, chilling coconut milk solidifies the cream, separating it from the liquid? Secondly, once it’s beaten, the cream makes a delicious coconut whipped cream?

For years I thought the only whipped topping worth having was heavy whipping cream whipped in a mixer. (Sorry Cool Whip lovers!) I love to prove myself wrong. And, I love LOVE that it happened while reading a good ol’ fashioned cookbook.

Making whipped coconut cream is this easy!

Here’s what I want you to do next time you are at the grocery store. Buy a can of coconut milk, even if it sits in your pantry for three months. Because one day you will move on to step two. I promise.

Secondly, take your can and chill it in the fridge overnight. Set a reminder on your phone for the next day to come back and finish!

After 24-hours, open the can and drain all of the liquid from the separated cream at the top.

Lastly, scoop the remaining cream solids (no liquids!) with a bit of sugar into a mixer and whisk until it’s as thick as you like.

Top some fresh fruit, your latte or hot chocolate, frost a cupcake, or fill something yummy like eclairs and cover with bittersweet ganache.
