Raw and Vegan Coconut Whipped Cream Recipe

Coconut whipped cream

It’s shocking to me how may people think that I am deprived in my diet. It’s almost as though they think that eating vegan means that I gnaw on carrots and celery all day! Well if you know me as well as I think you do… You will know that at least 45% of my diet is sweet and snacks. I am obsessed with chocolate, and could live off of cakes. — I have a sweet tooth okay, so shoot me! But I also like to jazz up my fresh fruit with coconut cream! This easy raw and vegan coconut cream recipe is a dream in any dessert. It will only take a few minutes to make and you could eat it alone right out of the bowl!

This easy raw and vegan coconut whipped cream recipe is a dream in any dessert.
Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: French
  • 2 cans full fat coconut milk
  • 2-3 Tbsp maple syrup, to taste
  • ½ tsp pure vanilla extract
  1. Place your cans of coconut milk in the fridge overnight. You need to chill the coconut cream until it’s very firm. An hour or more is always best. Just before you are about to start this delicious recipe place a mixing bowl in the freezer for 5- 10 minutes. This keeps everything cold.
  2. Take your chilled coconut milk out of the fridge and flip the can upside down. All of the liquid will now at at the top of the can, making it easy to pour out. Open your can and pour the water into a separate bowl (not your chilled one). Then use a cold spoon, and scrape out the solid coconut into your chilled bowl.
  3. Grab a hand mixer, or if you have a stand mixer feel free to use that, and whip the cream until fluffy. Add your sweetener and vanilla and and continue to mix. Add more or less sweetener and vanilla to your liking.
You can use this just as you would normal whipping cream. In cakes, coffees, various desserts or over fruit!

    Just so that there’s less confusion. Coconut Milk and Coconut cream sold at the store may be different things everyone. Coconut milk is usually more runny, sometimes sold in cartons for (maybe drinking or) drizzling over recipes. It appears that on this video Coconut Cream is being used, it is a much more solid consistency. I don’t know maybe in my country there is a distinction with these names.
    Funny story, I asked my dad once to buy me some Coconut water, and he bought 6 cartons of drinking coconut milk, lol, coconut milk here is the consistency of.. milk.

    How is this raw using canned coconut milk?

    • EdgyVeg says:

      You can find raw coconut milk at your local health food store.

      • Ali says:

        Coconut cream is extracted through a heating process. Have you found a particular brand that uses another method. I haven’t found any that specify, assuming they are all heated.

      • Autumn says:

        Yes, but your directions are for a canned product. I’m not sure how we’d use raw coconut milk (which isn’t then same thing as coconut cream). Honestly, great blog, but misleading post.

  • OMG… so yummy! I wonder if it will work with just coconut meat instead of the milk? We can get coconut meat here easy in Hawaii! I am going to try it with coconut meat and dates. I bet it will be DELISH! 🙂
