  • Berries & Whipped Coconut Cream



    I just made this for dessert tonight and wanted share. Next time I'll see if the coconut cream whips up by itself without the dairy cream.


    Place a small metal bowl and wire whisk in the refridgerator 15 minutes before making.


    3 Tbsp whipping cream

    3 Tbsp coconut cream (unsweetened)

    1 tsp vanilla

    1/4 c. each black berries & huckleberries (or your preference)


    Pour the cream, coconut cream and vanilla into the bowl you froze. Using frosty whisk, hand whisk the liquid until it's at your preferred consistency. It takes a while, your arm will get tired but keep whisking.

    Toss the berries on top and enjoy.

    Makes one to two servings.

    Thanks for the recipe! I've always just had berries, with generous amts of coconut cream. Great idea, altough Im afraid to try it as coconut cream is already addicting enough

          Why not use an electric hand mixer? Wouldn't it make the cream fluffier faster, and thus hold the whipped shape better? I haven't tried it yet, but I've seen a couple of people whisk things by hand, and just wondered why.

            I've been playing around with coconut cream because it never quite whips up the way I'd like. There are tricks out there for fixing your regular whipped cream when it goes flat, but so far I haven't gotten any of them to help (tried the gelatin one, more protein can't hurt right?)

            Anyone get their's to whip up nicely? I'm wondering if its the brand of coconut milk I get.

              Supposedly whipping stuff up with a pinch of xanthan gum or guar gum really helps, but I haven't tried it. They are starches, but you only require tiny amounts.

                  According to Tropical Traditions, coconut milk is 17% fat and coconut cream is 24% fat. Obviously every brand varies, though. (from their coconut cream concentrate page)

                    awee so I just have the milk...it is coconut milk from Thai kitchen. so this wouldn't work?

                    it seems pretty thick to me?

                      Primal Goddess, I have found that if I let my coconut milk sit around in the pantry for a while, the cream sets up on top and the more liquid milk settles to the bottom. Try opening a can and pulling the solid from the top, that'll be the "cream".

                      *I forgot to mention in my original recipe that I also chill the coconut cream as well.*

                      What I used for this recipe was a cool product I found in an Asian market in CA (I live in MT). It's pure coconut cream. The brand name is "kara". I will probably have to find an on-line seller for the stuff as I haven't seen it here in MT. They come in nifty juice-box like packaging of various sizes. They also have great coconut milk as well.

                          Is there cream we can buy that is just cream? All the heavy whipping creams I find have carageenan in them. Is that a cavemanny thing and ok to use, or should I just buy a cow?
