How to Make Vegan, Gluten-Free, Soy-Free Whipped Cream

This Recipe is :

Dairy Free Soy Free Vegan




  • ¼ cup raw turbinado sugar
  • ¾ tsp. cornstarch
  • 2-13.5 oz. cans full-fat coconut milk
  • 1 Tbs. vanilla extract
  • 4 Tbs. tapioca flour (or starch; it’s the same thing)


  1. The first thing you have to do is chill the coconut milk overnight. Put it in the coldest part of the fridge and don’t move it around. The coconut milk will solidify overnight. The next day, take it out of the fridge and don’t shake the can or turn it upside down. The liquid goes to the bottom of the can and we need to get rid of it. With the pointy part of a bottle opener, puncture the bottom of the cans (without turning it upside down) and let the liquid pour out. When it finishes draining, open the tops of the cans and you should see solid coconut cream. Using a spatula, transfer the coconut cream into a chilled metal bowl.
  2. The second thing you have to do is make your own vegan confectioner’s sugar. In a spice grinder, grind the raw sugar and the cornstarch until it is a fine powder. You should have about 1/3 cup confectioner’s sugar now. Set it aside.
  3. Beat the coconut cream with a hand mixer, going from low to high speed, until it becomes thick and fluffy.
  4. Add the vanilla and beat to mix it in. Add the confectioner’s sugar and beat that in. Use a spatula to scrape any sugar that clings to the sides of the bowl into the cream. Beat in the tapioca flour, one Tbs. at a time, until you have your desired consistency. Again, scrape any flour on the sides of the bowl into the cream. That’s it. You have whipped cream! Chill for an hour or two before serving. Don’t forget to lick the spatula and the beaters (after you remove them from the mixer, of course :)





When Rhea became vegan, there were no places in her Bronx neighborhood to eat so she had to learn to cook, mostly by watching TV cooking shows, especially Christina Pirello and Rachael Ray.  That led to the creation of The "V" Word website which focuses on vegan versions of favorite, familiar foods. Rhea has written several e-cookbooks which are available on her web site. It is Rhea's hope that she can spread the "V" Word to bring more compassion into the world and it is her dream to become the vegan Rachael Ray.

This is whipped coconut milk, not whipped cream. If you are living a vegan lifestyle, (which I think is unhealthy) please don\'t call things something they aren\'t . Don\'t call a dish mac and cheese when there is no cheese in it, don\'t call it whipped cream if there is no cream, etc. If you want whipped cream then use real cream. I\'m not saying this might not taste good, but I am saying that you should call it what it is. So many vegan recipes try to sound like the real deal, but you are all only fooling yourselves. Much better to eat real foods, and cook real recipes.

Is there a substitute for the corn starch? I can't consume any grains, especially corn
