Non-Dairy Whipped Cream
I try not to make a big deal about the fact that I’m lactose intolerant. Seriously, nobody wants to hear about your food sensitivities, especially it’s something that can be mitigated with a chewable tablet.
But there are times when dairy is layered upon dairy and a Lactaid pill just isn’t enough. My slow cooker arborio rice pudding with whipped cream is one of those examples.
Guys: I’ve discovered that you can whip coconut cream. No, really! Just get a can of the creamiest coconut cream you can find, refrigerate to chill, and whip away! You can see it in action in my Vine video.
Whipped Coconut Cream
|Prep time||10 minutes|
|Dietary||Gluten Free, Vegan, Vegetarian|
|Misc||Child Friendly, Serve Cold|
- 1 can Coconut cream (not "light")
- Powdered sugar (to taste)
- Vanilla extract (to taste)
|Open the can of coconut cream. Carefully scoop the solid stuff into the bowl of your stand mixer. You want as little of the watery milk in there as possible.|
|Turn on the beater. Whip until fluffy, about two minutes. Add powdered sugar and vanilla extract to taste. I found that it needed a couple of tablespoons of powdered sugar, and a splash of vanilla.|
|Top your favorite dessert with it. Watch the family ooh and aah.|
The Husband practically licked the bowl. The Assistant asked for seconds. And thirds. “Can you make rice pudding every night? Or maybe in the summertime we could have it with berries. And angel food cake. And… ooh, Mom, I have many ideas for this!”
