  • 1 14 ounce can full fat coconut milk or coconut cream (see note)


  • Place the can of coconut milk in the fridge overnight, or at least 12 hours.  
  • When the coconut milk is thoroughly chilled, open the can of coconut milk and scoop out the fat on top, leaving the water behind.  
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, whip the coconut cream on high until light and fluffy, about 3-5 minutes.  You can also do this with a handheld mixer, but it will take longer, about 8-10 minutes.  When it has whipped to your desired consistency stop the mixer, scoop on to your favorite dessert and ENJOY!


Lite coconut milk will not work for this, you need to make sure you have the full-fat coconut milk or coconut cream.
