Video/Recipe: Coconut Whipped Cream Filling or Icing

September 30, 2011 · 26 comments

coconut cream, whipped creamIf you are following a dairy-free diet it can be challenging to find something creamy to use as filling or icing. Fear not! This coconut whipped cream recipe will solve that problem for sure. It may be used as a filling or as an icing. It comes out light, creamy and as smooth as diary cream.

Please note that if you use the box of cream or the can of cream there will be a little bit of a “gum” additive. If you do not want that, you will have to collect cream from homemade coconut milk.


Coconut Whipped Cream Filling


One 8 ounce box of coconut cream (where to buy coconut cream)

Or, put a can of full fat coconut milk in the refrigerator to separate, and then collect the cream from the top (where to buy coconut milk)

2 tablespoon raw honey (where to buy raw honey)

1 teaspoon vanilla


  • Put whipping utensils and bowl in the refrigerator to chill
  • Put the cream in the bowl
  • Add the vanilla and honey
  • With hand mixer whip the cream for a few minutes
  • Refrigerate for 30 minutes to one hour to thicken

Thank you so much for posting this!  It will be so good for the holiday desserts.  My oldest son doesn’t do dairy and this will be perfect!

Thanks for the recipe! I make my own coconut milk and will add this recipe to my box. Thanks, again.

This looks great! If I decide to use the separated coconut milk, any suggestions for what to do with what remains after using the cream in the recipe?

Sorry I’m not farmiliar with the coconut products-yet-so this may be a dumb question:

Does the end result have the taste/flavor of coconut or is it more neutral like whipped cream from cows fat?


K. October 2, 2011 at 1:59 pm

I tried this recipe the other day, and it tasted EXACTLY like dairy whipped cream (at least from what I remember). I HIGHLY recommend this recipe!


Jill October 2, 2011 at 2:43 pm

I second what K. said. It tastes like regular whipped cream!

I love this recipe. I’ve used a similar one for a stuffed pavlova roll. Delish!

Well, I am dairy free but this looks delicious anyway.  I am about to place an order from that company for coconut flour and coconut oil, to try them out.  You are making a believer out of me, though I am not quite ready for your 28 day challenge, which I didn’t read until last night… I am late anyway.  I am going to really consider it and may start late.  Great post for Tuesday’s Tasty Tidbits.

I made this for Thanksgiving and it was so great to have whipped cream on our pumpkin pie!
