    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?

  • Barbeebutts October 2, 2011, 3:25 am

    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, 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, 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!

  • Jen October 3, 2011, 5:57 pm

    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.
