Right now, it is more important than ever to protect our immunity; this means choosing foods that support our immune system, like fresh whole foods and kombucha, and omitting foods that suppress our immune system like dairy, eggs, and processed foods, including processed sugars. 

Supporting our health doesn’t mean we always have to skip dessert; it means we have to make good choices when it comes to dessert! Sweets that contain ingredients like sea moss are an excellent option, depending on the rest of the ingredients in the recipe, like my Raw Vegan Apple Pie and Raw Vegan Pecan Pie

But what is Apple Pie (and other desserts) without whipped cream? Luckily, coconut whipped cream could not be easier or more delicious to make. 

I have two great options depending on what kind of equipment you have at home. My favorite way is using a whipped cream dispenser. This inexpensive kitchen tool is so worth it, in my opinion, because I love the light, fluffy, traditional whipped cream texture it creates. 

Otherwise, all you need is a glass or metal bowl and a standup or hand blender. 

Ingredients with a dispenser

  1. One can of full-fat coconut milk or two fresh coconuts turned into coconut cream only unrefrigerated to start. 
  2. 1 tsp vanilla
  3. 2 pinches of monk fruit powder or 1 tsp of your sweetener of choice

Directions with a dispenser

  1. Add all of the ingredients to the whipped cream dispenser.
  2. Shake very well.
  3. Refrigerate for 24 hours. 
  4. Set up your dispenser as directed on the package.
  5. Add your whipped coconut topping to your desserts. 

Without a dispenser

Ingredients

  1. 1 batch coconut cream
  2. 1 tsp vanilla
  3. 2 pinches of monk fruit powder or 1 tsp of your sweetener of choice

Directions

  1. Freeze a metal or glass bowl for 20 mins.
  2. Add all of your ingredients to the bowl. 
  3. Using your hand or stand up blender on a low-speed, whip up your cream. Roughly 2-4 minutes.

This second way is also delicious, just a bit thicker than using a dispenser. If you are a big whipped cream household, I highly recommend getting yourself a dispenser.
