Vegan whipped cream, say what? I feel like if more people knew how easy this was to make, there would be no need to ever buy processed dairy whipped cream ever. So whether you are vegan, vegetarian, or simply trying to eat more plant-based food (always a good idea), this recipe is for you! It’s sweet, simple, and decadent without being super unhealthy for you. A little dollop on top of some fresh fruit is the perfect snack!
Let’s talk ingredients. Most similar recipes will recommend using a can of coconut milk to make this Vegan Whipped Cream. Buuuuuuut, coconut milk has a limited amount of the actual cream needed, and you must refrigerate it before using. An extra step and less whipped cream? No thank you! Luckily, Trader Joe’s sells full cans of coconut cream for only $2. What a score! I like to use pure maple syrup as a sweetener, but you could easily substitute agave nectar. The lemon juice adds a nice tang to the Vegan Whipped Cream, but you could leave it out and flavor it with other extracts if you like. Maple extract would be good for autumn deserts, or try using vegan chocolate syrup to make chocolate Vegan Whipped Cream. The possibilities are only limited by your imagination!
