Once you go dairy free whipped cream is a major challenge. It is a delicious food that you should still be able to enjoy. I know that So Delicious does make a tub of whipped cream but have not found it at any of my local stores.

Whipped cream is an essential. I love it on and in many different recipes. As a kid I enjoyed it on Jell-O and pudding or just dipping some fresh berries into it. Now as an adult I love fresh whipped frosting on a cake or using this particular recipe to make creamy desserts like popsicles.

Whole fat coconut cream in the can is going to be your new go-to. I like to buy mine at Trader Joes or Fred Meyer but there are several brands that make it if you do not have a TJ’s.

It is super easy and fast to make and you can use your Hand Blender (that is how I make it unless I need it super whipped for a frosting or something) or my Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer .

When my daughter saw me taking pictures of it she immediately demanded a taste and wanted, “mo, mo!” So I ended up giving her a small bowl of it and a spoon, she was sad when the bowl became empty so quickly.

On this particular day I used my bowl of cream to make some orange cream dreamy popsicles. I also plan to use it in a pudding frosting recipe coming in the near future.


1 can of full fat coconut cream (needs to be refrigerated at least overnight)

1 Tbsp. Maple Syrup

1 Tbsp. Vanilla


Carefully take just the coconut cream off of the top off the can. Then add 1 Tbsp. of the coconut water to the mixture. Add maple syrup and vanilla. Use your Hand Blender or Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer and blend until the consistency is your desired thickness (this doesn’t overly whip but should have a nice texture to it) Enjoy!
