Don’t tell me that, as a kid, you didn’t enjoy eating bowls of plain whipped cream.
What? You didn’t? It was just me?
Especially around Thanksgiving, I could’ve done without the pies. Just give me the heavy cream and nobody’d get hurt. Therefore, I am head-over-heels in love with this recipe. It’s light, airy, and… creamy!
It’s the perfect substitute for heavy cream on top of pie, ice cream, or a parfait.
You can even try this in the Voluminous Oatmeal Recipe.
Or just eat the entire bowl straight-up, as I like to do!
Soy-Free Vegan Cream
(Makes 1 1/2 cups: one Katie-sized serving!)
- sweetener of choice
- 1/16th tsp salt
- 1 1/2 T water (20g)
- 1/2 serving agar base (see below)
- 3 drops coconut extract (Optional, but highly recommended)
- optional: cocoa or fruit (for flavored cream)
Instructions: First, make up the agar base. When it’s cooled, put half of it in a blender (or Magic Bullet) with all the other ingredients and blend away. Whip very well. I like to put it in the freezer for a few minutes prior to eating, so it’s super-cold. Optional: add fruit, cacao nibs, cocoa powder, or other add-ins.
(for the entire bowl!)
Want a version without agar? Try this: Coconut Cool Whip.
Uses for the Vegan Cream: Pour over berries, pie (pumpkin pie?!), waffles, or you can even eat it plain.
Or try it over pancakes, such as my Strawberry Shortcake Pancakes.
