I’ve been wanting to try this for a while now. It’s a gluten-free, dairy-free way to enjoy something like whipped cream and can be enjoyed in hot chocolate, on desserts, or on fruit. It’s easy and fast, too!
1. Chill an unopened can of coconut milk in the fridge for several hours or overnight.
2. Open the can; into a bowl scoop out just what has firmed up on the top. What’s left underneath is coconut water…don’t use that for your “whipped cream” but do save it to use in smoothies.

3. Add some vanilla (I used about a teaspoon for the one can) and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Mix well with a fork.
That’s it. You’re done! Now, obviously this doesn’t taste just like, or have the same consistency as, real whipped cream. It has a slight coconut flavor. But it’s kinda fun and may be good for those trying to cut back on dairy. Give it a try and see if you like it.
