    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)
