Adding gelatin to your coconut cream gives it a super smooth texture perfectly mimicking whipped cream. Plus it gives you all the great health effect of the stuff.

Supercharged Coconut Cream

  • One 400ml can of full fat coconut milk, chilled
  • 2 tablespoons grass-fed gelatin

Using a stab mixer, blend coconut milk and add the gelatin in a slow and steady stream.

Continue mixing until soft supercharged peak form.

Use immediately (for example alongside your sugar-free dessert or on top of your smoothie) or store in the fridge and use within 4-5 days.

Bonus tip: add it to your coffee

Bloom a tablespoon of the mixture in your cup with some milk. Smoosh with a fork then add black coffee and stir to combine.

    Sarah, in your book you suggest buying coconut cream, not milk, and then adding water to it. How do I go about making coconut frosting starting with coconut cream, or the even denser creamed coconut?

  • So brilliant!i love adding grassfed collagen protein or peptides to everything, like coffee! Next time I make a dessert or oatmeal-type things might try this!

    You absolutely DO NOT NEED Gelatin in a perfect vegan whipped cream substitute.
