Coconut Cream from Coconut Milk

Coconut cream can be used as a substitute for double cream in vegan recipes or simply to make the dish taste better! Simply in this recipe, we will be using coconut milk. You can add sugar to it to make it a more dessert-based cream, though we will be keeping it basic.

You can use the cream in savoury dishes and desserts alike. Around a can of coconut milk will yield slightly more than a cup. We used this cream to make a delicious peach cobbler which you can find here. For savoury dishes, you can use it for a bean quiche which is quite frankly amazing!

Whipped Cream

Whipped cream aids a lot of recipes whether savoury or sweet! It can also be whipped even further to become butter as well! You can add around 100g of icing sugar to this cream to turn it into frosting as well!

Why not try adding this to some hot chocolate as well? It tastes delicious as a topping!

You can use really any type of double cream- we decided we would use extra thick since it contains more fat which fastens the process. Make sure to stop whipping when it’s whipped enough as it will start to turn to butter!
