Are you dairy free or trying to bake for a dairy free friend? Did you decide to make a pie or a strawberry shortcake? But when you were halfway through, you remembered that whipped cream would be good on it. Coconut cream is an incredible solution! If you add vanilla extract, you will get the best whipped cream you have ever tasted! My dad, (who is not dairy free) even says that he feels like he is missing out whenever he eats normal whipped cream! I have not tried this (I will, possibly tomorrow) but you could probably beat in an extra half cup of powdered sugar, a stick of Earth Balance, and about three quarters of a cup of melted dark chocolate for a thick and fluffy chocolate frosting. Coconut cream is light and fluffy. In my version it is not too sweet. I find that it is creamier and tastier than normal whipped cream. Enjoy!
