Coconut Milk Whipped Cream Recipe
- 1 can of full fat coconut milk or coconut cream
- Agave nectar, maple syrup or honey to taste. (You can also use powdered sugar)
- 1/2 teaspoon of real coconut or pure vanilla extract
Using a spoon, gently lift the coconut cream out of the can, being careful to leave the coconut water behind. Put only the thick coconut cream in a large bowl. Beat the cream with an electric mixer until it becomes light, whipped and creamy, adding the extract and sweetener of your choice. The agave will make the whipped cream a little glossy. The agave will also thin it out a bit. You can quickly chill it in the freezer for 10-15 minutes to help thicken it or keep it in the fridge until you're ready to use it.
