Vegan Whipped Cream Ingredients

This is so important! Do not shake the coconut milk can, and be sure to chill it for at least 12 hours! So once you get back from the store, just pop it in the fridge until you’re ready to use it.

How to Make Homemade Vegan Whipped Cream:

  1. Refrigerate the cans of coconut milk for at least 12 hours or more before making the whipped cream. Handle with care and do not shake.
  2. Once chilled, open the can and scoop out the thick coconut cream from the top of the cans. Remove the the watery part and discard.
  3. To a standing mixer or large bowl (with a hand mixer) add the coconut cream and whisk for 2-3 minutes until light and fluffy.
  4. Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula. Add the vanilla extract and whisk to combine.
  5. Sift the powdered sugar and corn starch into the whipped cream and whisk again for another 1-2 minutes until combined.
  6. Use immediately– if you store for later (in the fridge) you may need to re-whip it again as it can stiffen once chilled.
