Vegan Cool Whip

Sharing is caring!

Regardless of your food allergies, intolerances, or food preferences, we believe everyone should be able to enjoy delicious whipped topping! So we crafted a completely gluten-free, dairy-free, and of course, vegan cool whip

This cool whip is made from coconut cream and has a rich, creamy coconut flavor. Check out our vegan cool whip recipe, a perfect addition to any sweet treat! 

What You Need 

This simple non-dairy cool whip only requires 3 ingredients. This makes for a great replacement for Kraft’s Cool Whip which is gluten-free, but it is not dairy-free. 

Here is what you need:

  • Coconut cream
  • Powdered sugar 
  • Vanilla

Equipment:

  • Bowl
  • Hand mixer 
  • Sifter for the powdered sugar

Tips

The secret to creating the best vegan cool whip alternative is in selecting the best coconut cream, we recommend Nature’s Charm Coconut Whipping Cream. Cool your coconut cream in the fridge for at least 8 hours before making this whipped cream, do not chill in the freezer (this will alter the texture).

Chilling the coconut cream will help with the separation of the cream and the liquid, which we want

Once you remove the coconut cream from the top of the can set the liquid to the side. Save the liquid from your can of coconut cream and use it as needed if the coconut cream is too thick and chunky. 

How To Make

  1. Place your coconut cream in the fridge for at least 8 hours to harden and help with the separation of the coconut cream and liquid oil.
  1. Once cooled, remove the can from the fridge do not shake it! Scoop out the hardened coconut cream off the top. *Remember to save the liquid and put it off to the side.*
