This coconut whipped cream is the perfect replacement for regular dairy cream. It goes absolutely great with desserts such as cakes and fresh fruit.

Coconut Whipped Cream

As you could imagine, this whipped cream is perfect to have on a delicious apple muffin or with a paleo-friendly dessert such as a peach cobbler. 

Coconut cream can vary massively depending on the brand you buy. If you find that this recipe doesn’t work, then it could be the brand of coconut cream that you’re using. I recommend trying a different brand to see if that will fix any issues that you’re having with making this.

You can also buy coconut whipped cream, but they’re often quite expensive and hard to come by. It’s best just to make it at home as it’s super easy and won’t take up too much of your time.

What goes with Coconut Whipped Cream

There are quite a few uses for this coconut cream, so it’s the perfect recipe to have when you’re feeling like something sweet and want something creamy to go with it.

Summer fruits and berries go perfectly with this cream. The berries are absolutely delicious with a little bit of the cream over the top. 

Whipped Coconut Cream with Fruit

I love having something like sliced fruit as it’s so easy to prepare quickly. It’s perfect if you don’t want to make anything labor-intensive to go with the cream. I highly recommend that you give it a go as there is nothing as good as fresh berries and whipped coconut cream.

You can also use this cream as the topping on cakes and other baked goods. It’s important to remember this will have a coconut taste to it, so keep that in mind when matching up flavors.

If you have any other suggestions, then we would love to hear them.

How long does Coconut Whipped Cream Last

I would personally try to make and eat this as fresh as possible. However, with that said, it can still be kept in the fridge for a few days before needing to be discarded.

You can also freeze the whipped cream, but I can’t guarantee it will defrost nicely. I recommend making it as fresh as possible for the best results.

Coconut Whipped Cream Recipe


  • 400ml (13 fl oz) coconut cream, chilled
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • ½ tsp vanilla bean paste


  1. Open the can of coconut cream and remove the coconut solids leaving just the liquid in the can.
  2. In a bowl, add the coconut cream solids, honey, and the vanilla bean paste.
  3. Beat using a hand blender or a food processor until the mix is nice and fluffy. It should only take about a minute.
  4. Serve & Enjoy.

Cooking Tips

  • You can use coconut milk instead, but for the best results, I recommend using the cream as it tends to be fattier.
  • The honey and vanilla can be left out if you would prefer a simple unsweetened paleo-friendly whipped cream.
  • Ensure that you have refrigerated the coconut cream. Otherwise, this recipe will not work. We only want the solids from the can.
  • If the cream is too thick, you can use a little bit of the liquid while whipping. Slowly add the liquid as you don't want to make it too runny.
  • Some brands of coconut cream add ingredients to help it from going solid. You want to avoid these brands as this recipe will not work. Try finding coconut cream without any additional ingredients.

One of the desserts that I love to have this with is the paleo-friendly peach cobbler. It just really helps add a whole new level to the already tasty dessert. If you’re looking for a dessert to try, then I highly recommend it.
