Coconut Whipped Cream

If you miss dairy and whipped cream on your Paleo diet, then we’ve got a serious treat for you! This Coconut Whipped Cream recipe is a healthy and Paleo version of whipped cream, that can be used anywhere that you would use traditional dairy whipped cream. Enjoy our Coconut Whipped Cream recipe on fresh sliced fruit or berries, atop Paleo Pumpkin Pie at Thanksgiving, in your Paleo Hot Cocoa, or as a topping for any another Paleo dessert!

Be sure to refrigerate your can of coconut milk overnight so you can easily separate the coconut cream from the coconut water (you’ll be using the cream only for this recipe).
