On death row…

Non-Dairy Whipped Cream

It’s my “cheat day” today, so I made some nearly paleo apple crisp, and I wanted some topping for it. I discovered you can make whipped cream out of coconut milk.

If you put the coconut milk in the refrigerator for a few hours (4 or so) you get the following when you open the can:

The top is creamy the bottom is watery… it separates kind of like yogurt does. You can then extract the cream and leave the water in the can (use it for something else).

Feel free to sweeten it if you want, with whatever… I used coconut sugar. You then whip it as you would heavy whipping cream and presto!

Non-dairy whipped cream 🙂 I admit it does not taste as good as the dairy stuff, but if you are trying to get away from dairy it’s a pretty good substitute. 

I used some with my apple crisp, the rest I am going to mix with some strawberries.
