  • 1-15 ounce can coconut cream refrigerated at least 8 hours
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup organic powdered sugar see note for other option


  • Refrigerate the coconut cream for at least 8 hours, but preferably 24 hours.
  • Scoop out the solid part of the coconut cream and add to the bowl of an electric mixer (or you can use a hand mixer). Leave behind any of the thin watery coconut milk, reserving for another use.
  • Whip the cold coconut cream with the whisk attachment until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add the vanilla and powdered sugar and whip for an additional minute.
  • Use immediately or store for up to 4 hours.


  1. You can use honey to sweeten this, but the whipped coconut cream will have a looser texture to it and won't be as stable.
  2. If you anticipate using this recipe often, always leave a can of coconut cream in your refrigerator!
