Last week, we shared a list of plant-based options Trader Joe’s provides to make holiday shopping and cooking that much easier. From the Turkey-Less Stuffed Roast With Gravy to the Sweet Potato and Pixie Pie Mix, Trader Joe’s does not disappoint when it comes to reinventing traditional holiday products. But they just outdid themselves and released a new coconut whipped cream in time for the holidays! For only $3, you can now top your pumpkin pie, apple crisp, and bread pudding with this dairy-free whipped cream.

If you’re in need of a few more ideas for the upcoming holidays, Trader Joe’s has plenty of whole food, plant-based ingredients to cook with. Whether you need breads, pastas, sauces, or plant-based meat products, there’s a variety of choices you can incorporate into your dishes.

How to Make Vegan Whipped Cream at Home

Don’t live near a Trader Joe’s or hoping to make all your holiday fare from scratch? We’ve got you covered with some recipes from the Food Monster App.

Soy-Free, Vegan Whipped CreamSoyfreewhipresize

This Soy-Free Whipped Cream by Rhea Parsons makes roughly 4 to 5 cups of whipped cream, so if you’re planning to make pumpkin pie topped with whipped cream, you need to multiply the ingredient amounts based on how much you plan to serve. This is a light and airy whipped cream perfect for topping any Thanksgiving dessert.

Raw Cashew WhipWhip

This will become one of your favorite things to eat. Jodi Burke’s Raw Cashew Whipped Cream is easy to make, tasty and will keep for several days in the fridge. For anyone who follows a raw, plant-based diet who misses whipped cream (the dairy kind) this is a great substitute! It will taste delicious over a fruity dessert like our Autumn Apple and Pear Hasselback Fruit Platter. 

Spiced Whipped Coconut CreamWhipresizespiced

There are about a million reasons to love whipped cream, and this recipe will add one more reason to that list. This Thanksgiving, make pumpkin pie or a chocolate torte and place a scoop of this Spiced Whipped Coconut Cream by Wendy Irene on each slice for extra seasonal flavor. It will be stunning and oh so delicious.
