2-Ingredient Vegan (Coconut) Whipped Cream

This easy homemade vegan whipped cream goes perfectly with pie, can be the topping on an ice cream sundae, and is an excellent match for some juicy and sweet fresh berries.

It’s cool, it’s creamy, and everyone I serve it to (vegan or not) absolutely loves it.   But here’s the crazy part: although the star ingredient is coconut milk, amazingly this whipped cream doesn’t have a coconut flavor.  Don’t ask me how that is, all I know is it’s insanely delicious, and it can be made in 5 minutes!

Here’s my method:

1. Start by placing a glass or metal mixing bowl in the freezer to chill for 10 minutes, (if using a stand mixer to make the whipped cream, be sure to chill the bowl appropriate for that machine.)

2. Then, open your chilled cans of coconut milk and add only the thick, hardened cream to the chilled bowl. (Discard the liquid.)

3. Beat the cream with an electric hand mixer or stand mixer on high until fluffy and smooth, about 30 seconds.

4. Then, add the powdered sugar and beat on low for the first 10 seconds, and then on high for one minute or until fluffy and resembles whipped cream.

5. Place the whipped cream in a storage container in the fridge until you need it.  It keeps for about a week.

That’s it!

I am trying to be a vegan. I’m having trouble finding the right recipes that will help me lose weight and get healthy. I’ve been watching Simmenet nutrition and he eats a lot. How can I lose weight if I eat a lot? And most of my recipes are sweet potato or regular potato. I really need help. When Jeff said at his show Thursday night that you all are vegan I was like oh goodies. Could you help me? I don’t know how to eat right. Portions included. I used to eat meat, carbs, a little veggies and dessert. Its hurt me a lot.

Hey Sara, yes – I’m familiar with Simmenet. He’s a super smart guy and shares a lot of great information. However, he is quite the athlete, so his portions may be larger than what most people would need. For myself and Jeff, we do eat more volume than ever on a vegan diet, simply because our plates are always at least half filled with vegetables and/or fruit. Potatoes and sweet potatoes are extremely healthy and satiety foods, and I highly recommend them. The one key thing is to make sure your fat intake is low, so you don’t want to cover those potatoes with oil or non-dairy butter. Try chili or ketchup or seasonings instead! Avoiding oils, and high fat foods is absolute key when aiming for fat loss on a vegan diet. But to make sure you don’t go crazy, always save room for a little treat every day, if you want one, such as some dark chocolate or a vegan cookie. Save bigger desserts and treats for special occasions or when you REALLY want them. Above all else, remember that perfection is NOT necessary – just take it one meal at a time and remember to always include a ton of vegetables and/or fruit with every meal. I hope this helps!
