For the coconut whipped cream:

  • 1/2 can : full-fat coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup : powdered sugar (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp : vanilla extract

1. Place your coconut milk can in the fridge overnight in order to allow the cream and the liquid to separate. Never shake the can during all the process.
2. Put the bowl and the whisker of your food processor in the fridge.
3. Open the coconut milk can and scoop the top layer of solid cream that has formed and put in the food processor bowl. Whip on high speed until the cream starts to thicken.
4. Add powdered sugar according to your taste preferences, and whip again to combine. The longer you whip, the fluffier the cream will become. When you have the desired texture, you can set the cream in fridge to solidify.
