    Mine never turned into a whipped cream consistency either. I made it at night with beaters in a bowl and it was like milk. In the morning after sitting in the fridge I beat it one more time and it only became a little thicker like organic heavy cream. I did add an extract though and maybe that was why.

    I had to heat up the coconut oil in order to turn it into liquid and pour it in. Maybe I should wait till it cools down a bit?

      Mmmm. This looks heavily! And it's the one reason why I won't go dairy free -- because I need cream in my coffee. I will have to try this next week. Thanks for posting!

        Posting an update on this miracle recipe!

        I've been using it in tea/coffee in place of dairy since November. It would have been much harder to be dairy-free without it.

        I've been gradually tweaking it...

        1) I usually use 2/3 full fat coconut milk, 1/3 water. Pours better when cold.

        2) I don't work too hard to get it frothy, partly because I don't really care if it's frothy or not, and partly because I'm very inconsistent about getting the froth...not sure why.

        3) Today for the first time I tried using olive oil instead of coconut oil (because I have 2 gallons of coconut oil to get through, but I don't like the flavor of this specific brand in something as bland as the creamer, and if I buy the coconut oil I like, I'll never use the 2 gallons for anything....!!) Worked GREAT, and I liked skipping the step of melting the coconut oil. I drizzled the olive oil in while whisking so it would emulsify, and it doesn't seem to have separated out in my coffee. I used light olive oil, so no taste. Would like to try almond oil too.

          Has anyone analyzed the recipe for carb content? I put it an nutritiondata and not sure it is correct, for 12 servings it had one carb per serving.

          Thanks, it sounds wonderful! Plus, the health benefits of coconut oil are fantastic.

                ???????

                Why would you ever just use the white?

                  Eggnog is usually made with egg white hence my question.

                    I think diet egg nog might be made with egg white, but I think the authentic version uses the whole egg. I'm having a hard time finding an eggnog recipe online that doesn't use the whole egg...some even seem to use more yolk than white.

                      Is this a bad idea if I'm trying to cold turkey cut out sugar? I NEED something in my coffee!

                        Sounds like a great idea if you are trying to cut out sugar to me!

                        My husband is trying to cut sugar and has found he can drink coffee without his usual two sugars if he has heavy cream in it. He also finds tea a palatable alternative. I am going to make this creamer and see what he thinks of it as well

                          Quick question: if I beat the heck out of coconut milk, will it turn into whipped cream like heavy cream would?

                            Not really, but it can get kind of close if you whip the hell out of it while it is ice cold and firm from the fridge. You'll never really get a whipped cream with it.

                            Just take the can of coconut milk, make sure it is settled and DO NOT SHAKE IT because you want the water to seperate from the coconut. Put that in the fridge and wait a day or two and then pull it back out. Scoop out the hardened coconut fat and whip it.

                            Oh yeah, I made the creamer tonight and it's pretty good.. added some vanilla extract and stevia to it as well.

                              I had some cream already made in the fridge (otherwise I may have been able to resist the urge), so I tossed in some cocao powder, and honey, then poured it on top of the banana walnut bread (that I turned banana choco chip) that was posted earlier. The caveman, and the little cavechildren inhaled it! Thanks for these sinful thoughts!

                                When you guys use the full fat cans of Coconut Milk in things, coffee, primal coconut flour pancakes, smoothies, etc. and you only use part of the can, does anyone know if you are supposed to stir the water and coconut fat and all of it together, then use it..... then store the rest (mixed together like that) in the fridge? Is it okay to mix it all together like that then store it until later use?
