Dairy Free Whipped Cream

Let me start off by saying that I’m the whipped cream and strawberries type of girl. Since being on this healthy eating journey and learning that dairy just doesn’t agree with me. I tried my best to look for alternatives. I don’t live close to whole foods which typically carries the dairy free option. Plus, I’m more of on the whim type of person and I typically have at least one can of coconut cream in the fridge for those on the whim recipe moments. 
I purchased two big tubs of Nutella from Costco. They’re not vegan and I try my best to avoid dairy products. I will say that I tried this recipe and I honestly wanted to eat the entire bowl. Yes, it was that good. The Whipped cream added the perfect touch to my vegan crepes topped with strawberries and I was in business. I didn’t share this with my family. However, I will try to remember to get their review. I love that this recipe can be made at home and store in the fridge for up to a week. I also love how fluffy the consistency of this whipped coconut cream is. If you store it the fridge and it loses its shape you just have to whip it up again and enjoy!



  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 1/2 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Mixer ( I used a KitchenAid )


  1. Refrigerate can of coconut milk, 8 hours or overnight.
  2. Place metal mixing bowl and beaters in the refrigerator or freezer 1 hour before making whipped cream.
  3. Open can of coconut milk, taking care not to shake it. 
  4. Add only the cream contents and not the liquid
  5. Beat coconut cream using an electric mixer with chilled beaters on medium speed; turn to high speed.
  6. Add maple syrup once combined at vanilla extract 
  7. Enjoy or refrigerate (lasts in the fridge for a couple of days)
