Whipped Coconut Cream is easy and delicious! I have used both regular canned coconut milk and boxed coconut cream to make coconut whipped cream (with the boxed coconut cream you don’t have anything to drain off. You use the entire contents of the box). Both have worked great! I personally use coconut whipped cream in place of other whipped creams for the simple reason that coconut whipped cream is natural and pure. Plain and simple.

One thing I have noticed is that each can varies in the amount of thick coconut cream in the can (present once you refrigerate it). I have had a can have only 1/2 of the thick white cream and others almost all the can.

Below I have listed a couple ways you can change up the flavour of your coconut whipped cream or to sweeten it if you choose. I, myself, love it just plain.

Coconut Whipped Cream is delicious to top fresh mixed berries, healthy desserts or to dollop on top of your shake.
