Dairy Free Whipped Cream

This Dairy Free Whipped Cream is a staple recipe. It’s quick, easy, requires less than five ingredients, and allows you to have all the great taste of traditional whipped cream without the dairy setbacks. I LOVE anything whipped, and have been known to eat almost an entire container of whipped cream, leaving me feeling bloated and albeit full. So, I’ve had to purposely NOT purchase it. It’s just too good and I can’t be stopped. Cravings persisted and I wanted to enjoy a healthier version – one that I felt good about devouring. In walks Dairy Free Coconut Milk! Praise.

I use Whole Foods 365 Organic Coconut Milk (full fat) and have found the best results with that. If you prefer not to use sugar for additional sweetness, adding 1/2 Tbsp – 1 Tbsp of maple syrup would do the trick, too. Be sure to be extra careful when removing the can from the fridge and opening. You don’t want the liquid and the fat to mix together again. It’s not the end of the world if they do mix a bit, but just be cautious.

Here is a simple, step-by-step guide for making your own at home and eating all in one sitting, if you like.
