After so many healthy coffee recipes in our past blogs, and a lot more to come. Adding whipped cream has been a big concern, with all the sugar and synthetic ingredients, it has become a guilty pleasure. Especially after adding beets to our red mocha latte for Valentine's day to replace the unhealthy choice of artificial food colour.
Finally, after a lot of digging, we came across a healthy method of making homemade whipped cream, with total control over what you put in your body (without the guilt!). As always we try to make it as simple as possible for everyone.
HOMEMADE COCONUT WHIPPED CREAM:
Easy two ingredients:
A can of Pure Organic "Full Fat" coconut milk, or coconut cream. We recommend pure coconut milk for more control.
*Allergic? leave a comment below, we will write an alternative!
Your choice of natural sweetener, we recommend maple syrup.
Put the can of coconut cream or milk in the fridge overnight. This will help separate the cream and liquid.
Next day Instructions:
Place your mixing bowl 10 minutes in the fridge before whipping.
Remove the lid, scrape out the top of the coconut cream or milk (thickened cream), leave the liquid behind. *Note: if your coconut milk didn't harden, you probably got a cream or milk without the right fat content. In that case, you can try tapioca flour - 1 to 4 Tbsp during the whipping process.
Place the thickened cream in your now cold mixing bowl. Beat for 30 seconds with a mixer until creamy. You can add vanilla ~1 teaspoon (optional) and your choice of sweetener, mix until creamy and smooth ~ 1 minute.
Taste and adjust sweetness as needed.
Use immediately or refrigerate for up to 1 - 2 weeks. *Recipe makes ~1 1/2 cups whipped cream.
Finally a Guilt-free whipped cream! Yes!
