A vegan alternative to whipped cream.


1 2/3 cup unsweetened coconut milk 420 mL
1/2 tsp vanilla extract 2.5 mL

Before you start

To obtain a whipped cream, only the fatty part of the coconut milk is used. Hence put the can of coconut milk in the refrigerator overnight so that the fat hardens and separates from the milk.

Pay attention: Use coconut milk that does not contain emulsifiers, otherwise the separation will not occur.

A hand-held mixer will make things easier for this recipe.


  1. Put a bowl in the freezer for about 5 min.
  2. Meanwhile, remove the coconut milk can from the refrigerator and place it upside down to ease to extraction of the milk from the top. Open the can then pour the milk into a glass jar with lid to be kept in the refrigerator or freezer for future use in other recipes. Place the fat in the cooled bowl.
  3. Using an electric mixer, whisk the coconut faut until creamy and light, about 2 min. Add the vanilla and, if desired, the sweetener of your choice, then whisk to combine.


The whipped cream can be kept in the refrigerator up to 10 days. It must be whipped again before serving.
