Coconut Whipped Cream

We love our whipped cream in coffee, on berries for dessert, really on any of our primal desserts.  But it’s nice to have an alternative to dairy and for our Paleo friends.

Henry thought it would be good to have some cold coconut milk and stuck a can into the fridge for a couple of hours. When he opened it he noticed that it had gotten very thick on top, so he scooped it out and noticed that it had separated from the coconut water. So he added a little cinnamon and a little organic vanilla extract to the thick coconut and whipped it up. To our happy surprise it got thick and creamy immediately, and Oh Wow!!! sooooo good.

So since then we’ve been enjoying our morning cup of coffee with a spoon full.

So here are a couple of pictures for you – try it, it is so incredibly easy and completely gluten and dairy-free.

Step 1: Take a “full fat” can of Organic Coconut Milk and place it in the fridge for some time or best over night

Refrigerated Coconut Milk being scooped out by Henry

Step 2: Make sure that you scoop out all the thickened coconut cream, and that the water is left over. Don’t discard the water, use it to drink or in a shake.

Step 3: After scooping it out, add a little cinnamon and vanilla, and whip it in a mixing bowl until it begins to thicken.

Step 4: Enjoy every bite, anyway you like!🙂

    Wow! That looks great. Gotta try this! And looks like you whipped it by hand–so that is easy. Thanks for the great alternative to cream!

    • TrishWA says:

      If you take a “full fat” can of coconut milk and let it sit in the fridge overnite, in the morning you will have thick stuff on top-add just a bit of cinnamon and vanilla and whip with your hand beater. I think this would be excellent on this

      • KSH says:

        You don’t need to put it in the fridge. It is naturally this way, which is what the recipe is about.🙂

      • Idontknow says:

        Hey KSH, you must not have read the article above or you would see it’s from the fridge you idiot.

        You don’t know there’s no need for insults.

      • totally agree Gabriella! Future insulting messages will not be approved by NK. Jo

      • kendra says:

        Hi.. I tired this.. left the can overnight and it still came out nothing like whipped cream. It was really runny still..any tips?

      • Georgia says:

        I tried this but it did not work. the coconut milk was still runny and never separated from the water.

      • Idontknow is just a troll, Ignore it.

        Don’t shake the can before you put it in the fridge. In fact, let it sit undisturbed for a while before you chill it and you should have better results. Also be sure it’s full fat. A good brand to use is Thai Kitchen. (As in the photo above.)

      • Sam says:

        There are two qualities of Coconut milk available in the grocery store. Shake the can– if u hear the liquid in the can, it is the lesser quality. The good stuff is silent and full fat. The THAI KiTCHEN brand is expensive and makes noise. The no-noise type is best, but be careful not to include any trapped liquid in ur whipped cream. “Fridging” it makes the whipping process better.

  2. Adam D. says:

    Thanks for sharing this recipe. I often use heavy cream but I find that my body doesn’t always agree with it. I guess that’s why we primal folks tend to stay away from dairy. This seems like it would be an awesome substitute.

    • Heather says:

      i totally know what you mean… my body didn’t agree with cream either until i switched to raw cream, and milk for that matter. now i can have all the grass-fed raw dairy i want with no side effects and tons of amazing benefits to boot🙂

      • Nice Heather! I am so happy for you, you will love this. jo

      • beckie says:

        I made some into ice cream last month to put in our birthday cake. It was sooo good with raspberries

      • Karen Chatham says:

        Same here Heather. I can drink the raw milk and cream with no problems at all. Glad to know I am not crazy!

    • Gabriella says:

      I’ve asked this question before, but never got a reply : How much cholesterol is there in coconut whipped cream ? If anyone know, please reply :o)

      • Hi Gabriella, there is no cholesterol in this.🙂 jo

      • looooon says:

        Gabriella – only animal products have cholesterol.

      • fionacreates says:

        I did not expect to see cholesterol listed on a can of coconut milk, but I just checked Thai Kitchen, and both “premium” and organic types list cholesterol as 5 mg per 60 mL!
        I happened to have a can of Native Forest organic, and that lists cholesterol as 0 mg, the same with my coconut oil. So what is Thai kitchen doing to their coconut milk??

        I do know for certain that coconut fat is high in saturated fats, which may raise bad cholesterol (LDL) in your blood. At the same time it may raise good cholesterol (HDL). If high cholesterol is a concern do your research, ask a professional, and in the meantime, use sparingly!

    • 4ourking says:

      Adam, I use Coconut milk or almond milk for nearly everything that I cook..I even use it in my cereal. We rarely use dairy except cheese which is a familial weakness. Ha! But I have NOT YET tried this. I can’t wait!

  3. Dave says:

    Great tip – our household is mostly gluten-free these days. Mom & son 100%, Dad and daughter about 85%. So far so good. And Spinato’s has a sweet GF crust for those craving days…

    • Hi Dave, awesome to see you on our site and thank you for commenting. I am so happy that you are going gluten-free.🙂 Looking forward to many fun exchanges. Best! Jo

  4. Mary says:

    Thank you for such a wonderful idea!!! I had given up all dairy except for the little half and half in my morning coffee because i had not found an alternative I liked. Well thanks to you now I have!!! Thanks for all the wonderful blog posts! I am fairly new to this eating lifestyle and have really been inspired by your blog.


    • Thank you, Mary. This is so wonderful. Congratulations on your decision to eat healthier. Best! Jo & Henry

    • Jill Edwards says:

      Hazelnut is my current favorite in coffee, but who can complain about having coconut whipped cream in their coffee?

    • sarah says:

      if you have a local health food store or trader joe’s maybe? there is a GREAT coconut milk creamer in different flavors that I love. Made with coconut milk…no dairy or soy. The brand is So-Delicious …or see if your local walmart can get it by talking to the right manager. I’m currently working w/mine. since they carry the brand in coconut milk and almond milk in the fridge section. Almond milk doesn’t work in coffee but a little coconut milk does. I also like those syrups….from sam’s they have pure can sugar in them and no dyes listed. My favorite is the carmel. I whip mine with one of those hand blend little battery operated foamers? can’t remember what you call em.

      • Nancy says:

        Love it I use it every morning, very yummy! I like French Vanilla they also offer Hazelnut!

      • Juliette says:

        I don’t use that brand because there are so many other ingredients. When you get the right coconut milk you can get only coconut.

      • PF says:

        Do some research on the ingrediant in So Deliocious products and most coconut and almond milks, its called carageenan. Seems to be a very unhealthy ingrediant

      • Kay says:

        I have been using the So Delicious Coconut Creamer for my coffee in the past year since I went gluten and dairy free – but just discovered that the Xanthan/Guar gums can also be problematic for gluten intolerance folks. So now I might make my own with the pure coconut milk!

      • Amber says:

        PF – Carrageenan is kelp. Definitely not an unhealthy ingredient. It’s in tons of stuff and is used as a thickener. It’s in ice cream, toothpaste, make-up… if it’s thick, it probably has carrageenan in it.

      • Gabriells says:

        Very interesting ! I’m going to check my local Walmart tomorrow .Thanks for sharing :0)

    • Diane says:

      We use 1tsp. blue agave nectar in our coffee & then mix in Silk soy creamers (Hazelnut & vanilla). My husband has to guard his coffee at work because co-workers come by & drink it!

  6. megpie says:

    does this work with low fat coconut milk? the thai kitchen full fat cans have some guar gum in the ingredients, which i can’t have… the only coconut milk that i have found with no preservatives, additives, or stabilizers is trader joe’s low fat coconut milk. i have some in the fridge now, will see if whipping does anything.

    • Hi Megpie, Low-fat only means that it’s watered down coconut milk, minus in TJ’s case the guear gum. So it should work for you, but it will only yield a small amount versus 1/2 the can. Please let me know how it turns out – we’re curious. Thank you for commenting. Jo

      • Merida says:

        I tried it with low fat and it was in the fridge for 3 days and did not thicken or separate.

      • Hi, yes you “must” use full fat. NK

      • Adrienne says:

        I only had 17% fat coconut milk and it worked for me. I just added a couple tablespoons of powdered sugar, the vanilla, and whipped it with the whisk attachment in a cold metal bowl. It took longer than I thought it would but it worked great😀

      • Bing Vanags says:

        The best coconut milk brand I always use for baking and cooking is “Chaokoh” It is a product of Thailand which you can only purchase from the Asian Market.

    • Lala says:

      The fat in coconut milk is from medium chain fatty acids. They are the good ones. Don’t worry its not like yucky, unhealthy hydrogenated oils.

      • Gabriella says:

        I was wondering if this whipped coconut delight has any cholesterol. I really love it , it’s a total treat whipping the cream and drinking the coconut water!!!!!!

  7. Karl says:

    I tried the coconut whipped cream and loved it…so did my kids! They were screaming for more.


    • hsvendblad says:

      Karl – I was reading your blog just this morning and noticed the link back to our site and meant to send you a note of thanks. So, thank you very much for the link love and I look forward to reading your blog and sharing more recipes. I’m planning on trying your salmon salad this week. It looks great!

  8. Christy says:

    Yipeee!!!! I make whipped cream all the time to top cakes and hated that all I could find was ultra pasteurized. Now I can make something even my child with milk allergies can enjoy! I am putting a can in the fridge right now.

  9. Kristy A. says:

    Just tried this for the first time last night and it was out of this world! I used to make a ricotta cream canoli filling and this comes really close to matching the same richness and flavor, especially the cinnamon bite. I am sold! Great recipe! I can’t wait to share it with others!

    • Hey Kristy! Thank you so much. It is really our favorite now. We use it for many things as well. Do you have a paleo/primal canoli recipe? Have a very Happy 4th of July. Best! J

      • Niamh Juhl says:

        You can make ‘canoli’ shells using 1/4 cup young coconut meat, and 1/4 cup coconut water – blend in a blender, then dehydrate until firm (not crunchy) – it takes about 6 – 12 hours at 105 – 120 degree setting. Just spoon the mix onto a ‘fruit leather’ sheet and form into circles about 1/8 inch thick. Really I guess these are simply coconut leather circles – but I think would work amazingly with this cream!

  10. Kristy A. says:

    No, I haven’t experimented making canoli yet, but perhaps someday! Thanks again for the delicious recipe!

    I made this using the same brand of coconut milk as pictured, and it came out great!
    I tried it on fresh raspberries, and it’s wonderful. It has the same texture as real whipped cream
    with a slightly coconutty taste, which didn’t bother me at all. I’m going to try this on my coffee, and also
    on a cream pie made with coconut milk.

  24. I have a slightly different recipe but loved it plain too! Mine went with crepes, nom!

  25. JCM1953 says:

    You can buy canned unsweetened coconut cream at Asian groceries (Savoy is a good brand), and you can dispense with the separation. Thai Kitchen is, however, more widely available in retail groceries, and I buy it when I can’t go across town to our Asian grocery. The coconut cream there is also a little less expensive than Thai Kitchen’s coconut milk.

  26. Do you think this would this work for cupcakes? And if so, would it “melt” in the sun? I’m trying to find a light cupcake icing and this sounds divine! But I don’t want it to melt in warm temperatures…what do you think?

    • Hi, I think that coconut whipped cream would melt in the sun. How long will they be exposed? We are thinking that coconut cream concentrate also known as coconut butter may work as well. Depending on the types of cupcakes that you are making, Ube might work as well. Check out our Ube recipe in the Dessert section. Jo

    • sarah says:

      maybe take your can of cold coconut milk w/you and the other ingredients..vanilla/cinnamon with the cupcakes and just before you serve them whip up the cream?

  27. Can you use this in a whipped cream maker like this one We have one and my roommate is vegan and she really wants to try this?

    • Serge says:

      Yes you can. We do this all the time. But in this case we mix in the water so that it isn’t as thick. Then it comes out just like the store bought stuff. Only better!

  28. This has seriously rocked our world. With raspberries Holy crap the perfect way to squelch our Ice-cream habit. Thinking of doing a version with a little amaretto. Thanks!

  32. George says:

    Doesn’t seem to work with water taken fresh from a coconut… no separation occurs.

  33. Angie Felton says:

    I tried this but I used a store brand coconut milk, full fat and when I opened it after 24 hours in the fridge it was creamy…. it did not scoop out at all like yours did however it was still really good. It made a nice change for an afternoon cup of coffee. I will have to try it again with the suggested brand and see if i get the same results as you.

    How long will this last in the fridge? I’m the only one who would use it in my household and I’m curious how long a can would last. Thanks!!!

    • How long this lasts really depends on the quality of the coconut milk you use and the type of container you store it in. We typically use an Aroy-D 100% brand that has NO preservatives or additives of any kind. We also make sure it is in a sealed container and we can usually keep this for a few days (2-3). If you use a brand that has some preservatives you may be able to keep this for a week or longer… I hope this helps!

  42. I can’t wait to try this as I LOVE coconut… I think this would be a delish topping on my pina colada!!! Thanks for sharing!

    I made this the other day with another brand of Coconut milk (Goya) and it did not work at all, the creamy part and the water didn’t separate, so it was very runny. I bought Thai Kitchen brand and tried it again, what a difference! it is so thick, I added about 3 Tbsp powdered sugar and maybe a tsp of vanilla and whipped it up. Yummy!

    • Thanks for the feedback Laura. Some producers use lots of additives to homogenize the coconut milk. The better the quality and fewer additives the more success you will have.

  51. This looks amazing! I am trying this tomorrow! Thanks for the tip! ❤

  52. Jeannine says:

    I have tried making this using the same EXACT can of coconut and both times it was in liquid form, not solid at all! I refrigerated the second attempt for two days and still not a solid. Any suggestions??

    • Jeannine- it’s possible that Thai Kitchen has added ingredients to make their milk more homogenized and hard/impossible to seperate. My suggestion is to try another brand, for example Aroy-D. We stopped using Thai Kitchen Organic because it contained additives that we did not want. let us know if you find another brand that works?

  68. Wish I had read the reviews BEFORE trying this. I also used the brand pictured, and it did not fully separate. I whipped it anyway, and it is tasty, but a bit runny. I’m going to ttry again with a different brand. I actually thought my fridge might be the problem! lol

  69. Vanessa Bett says:

    Mine turned out a bit runny as well, but I think it helps to freeze the mixing bowl before mixing. It is pretty tasty though!

    This sounds so good! Will have to try it. A thought – it looks like you had to use a can opener to remove the lid, right? Why not turn the can over when you put it in the fridge. That way, when you turn it over to open, the liquid would be on top & easier to pour off. The rest would be just the cream. Thanks for sharing!!!

  80. Found this on Pinterest – you’re surprised aren’t you?🙂 My husband is lactose intolerant and I’m still getting used to cooking dairy free for him. I wanted to make sure he had something to eat at family gatherings for Christmas so I made tiramisu brownies ( and substituted this cream and soy milk. It was a huge hit with everyone. I did have some problems with milk separating. Out of eight cans, only two worked. But I didn’t use organic (couldn’t find it). I just read someone’s suggestion about the coconut cream so I think I’ll try that next.

  101. Okay, maybe a stupid question: I’ve had this bookmarked for a long time but have always wondered about something. How come you can’t use the coconut water to drink or in a shake? What are you supposed to do with it then?

    I was just re-reading this again today (for probably the 100th time, I like to look at things and dream about eating them, and then never do it, lol) and it finally occured to me that it might be a grammatical error? Is it supposed to say, “don’t throw it away; use it….” ?? Or is it supposed to be a list of things you aren’t supposed to do with the coconut water, like it’s written? That’s how i have been reading it this whole time and it never made sense to me, but I have never used any coconut products so I just figured the water would make you sick or something. ??? Could you clarify?

    Piece of heaven: Banana crepes (easy: 2 eggs + 1 banana) topped with cinnamon vanilla coconut whipped cream and chopped strawberries. Yum!

  105. I tried it this morning. I refrigerated the coconut milk overnight. I tried to get all the thick part out, leaving only the water. Unfortunately, a good bit of it was still milky. It was hard to get all the solids out without some of the liquids. I still mixed it with the cinnamon and vanilla. It still tasted good, but it didn’t get as thick as I would like, to get that “whipped” texture. It was more of a thick cream, or melted whipped cream more than anything for me. I am storing the rest of the “milk” to see if any more hardens, or becomes more solid. It just didn’t separate very well for me. It was still delicious.

    • Henry Svendblad says:

      Jennifer – Sorry to hear that your coconut cream did not whip up the way it should. We’ve run into similar issues depending on the type of product we use. The best results are had with Coconut Milk that has NO additives and is 100% coconut. Unfortunately, the ingredients that are added to some Coconut Milk will cause the milk to stay homogenized or partially so. The brand we use most and recommend is Aroy-D 100% Coconut, you can find it online if you don’t find it locally.

      • Thanks for the tip. I did put what I made in a storage container and put in the fridge. After a while it actually solidified. It is like a really thick whipped cream.

    Doesn’t work with Vitarroz brand coconut milk. I’ve had it in the fridge for ten hours, and it’s cold but very liquid. Ingredients list are coconut extract, water, potassium metabisulfate as a preservative. I’ll get my hands on the Thai Kitchen brand later and have another go at it. A friend tried it and said it was awesome.

  111. Traci says:

    Geisha isn’t a working option either. I’ll definitely pay the extra dollar for the featured brand!🙂

  112. Suzanne says:

    Only use full ft coconut milk. If it’s in the can, make sure the can is BPA free. Thai Kitchen, as pictured is organic but it doesn’t come in a BPA free can but Native Forest brand does. If you don’t know, call the company and ask. So Delicious coconut milk has so many other additives in it that aren’t good for us. I’d avoid it. I buy my coconut milk from It comes in asceptic paper containers and is delicious.

  113. Juanita says:

    Thank you soo much for this idea!

    I had the same thing happen to me…I’ve been trying to go Vegan but had not found a replacement to dairy for my coffee, read an article about coconut oil and thought coconut would be a nice touch in the coffee and maybe replace the dairy, opened the can (same type pictured here) to find it had separated, dumped the whole can (including the water) into a bowl and used my hand blender to remix…it turned out fluffy and creamy and is a perfect addition to my morning coffee. Never thought of adding cinnamon, will do that with the next can.🙂

    Adding Cream of Tartar to a runnier mix will help “thicken” it, but Cream of Tartar is not gluten free. Guar-Guar is gluten free (I think) and I’ve tried the Rooster Brand with some success — it’s a bit runnier than this, but I don’t think it was in the fridge long enough — I’ll be leaving the can in the fridge overnight to see if it works better! (I really want to make a nice chocolate mousse for my 3 y/o and I — we are both Dairy and sometimes Gluten-free).

    I’ve had this pinned for some time and finally got around to purchasing some cocnut milk to try it with. I bought another brand (at Walmart) as it was half the price and didn’t have guar gum in it. Upon opening it to put into the fridge (thinking if it thickened I could skip scraping of the lid by removing it) it was already thickened. Whipped with some vanilla and a dash of stevia powder.

    this worked beautifully with the Thai Kitchen brand organic coconut milk. i added nothing, and it whipped up beautifully into a wonderful, thick and refreshing garnish to my gluten-free vegan lemon cupcakes with fresh strawberries. taste of summer!

    i couldn’t find Thai Kitchen the next time i went shopping so i bought another organic brand that had guar gum in the ingredients (does Thai Kitchen?) and it was completely different. when i opened the can, the liquid was on top, and while TK gave me about 1/2 can of thick stuff, this other brand was almost 3/4 of a can under the liquid. i tried whipping it, and it did NOT thicken up. i left it sitting a few minutes and it got runnier. (i confess i added a bit of the liquid back in, because i thought it seemed thicker than TK, but i’m sure it didn’t make that much difference.) SO… be warned! you have to get the right kind of coconut milk for this to work!

    Another trick that my wife and I found was to leave the tin of coconut cream upside down in the fridge for a couple of days.

    Then take it out, turn it over, pop the top and simply pour out the water and then spoon out the cream which will now be at the bottom.

  163. Jessica says:

    Sent my husband to the store to get the coconut milk and forgot to specify organic. He came home with two brands: A Taste of Thai and Geisha something or other. The can by A Taste of Thai said “no preservatives” on it and worked perfectly, but the Geisha brand didn’t work at all. It stayed creamy and didn’t separate. Just a suggestion for anyone wanting to try it! It is DEFINITELY yummy!

    The reason it separates and is that thick is the guar gum. Fresh coconut milk from the coconut is think and sort of separates but it’s the gum that does the trick here. Maybe those who mentioned not being able to have it could use full-fat c. milk sans guar gum and add some xanthan?

        The more expensive coconut milk doesn’t work any better than the others. Thai Kitchen which I think is pricey, did not whip very well, was kind of creamy. I had better luck with less pricey brand I found at Shoprite. It’s a shame coconut cream cannot be whipped, I assumed it would be better for whipping.

    I was fairly excited about this and thought it might be an alternative for my family until I did some research. Although coconut milk is considered by some (those who want people to believe in the health benefits of it) to be made up of mostly medium chain fatty acids (I believe I even saw that mentioned in this post), in reality, it contains a lot of saturated fat. Although it’s a good alternative for those needing to avoid dairy or soy, it’s not a good alternative for those needing to watch their cholesterol and fat intake. Coconut milk has some added benefits (more vitamin D and calcium than cows milk depending on the brand), but if using the full fat version, you need to use it sparingly, just as with any other high fat food. Moderation is always the key.

    Thanks for this recipe! Life changer! It’s a much easier, healthier, and such a delicious way to frost cakes, cupcakes, muffins, and top waffles with. I used this recipe to top my Pineapple Walnut Cupcake Muffins. I spooned it on and smoothed it with a knife. Pics if you want to see:

    Used this recipe at a church gathering with mini-cupcakes (no refined sugars)! and again with a raw grated apples and berries with granola crisp. What a big hit each time! Folks glopped as much on whatever they wanted. Old folks, young whipper snappers, everybody! !

    I made this tonight (on GF strawberry shortcake) with the brand pictured and it was runny…. Good, but runny. I want to find a better can of milk to try it with. My 1yo cant do dairy and we all LOVE coconut so I was so happy to find (and repin) this! Thank you!!

      Recently I  bought  some Cena brand coconut milk  that  was  all solid (  not  half  water  and  half  fat ) I  was  really  surprised cause  I  had  used  that  brand  before.So  I  don’t know  what it  is, maybe  this  was  freshly canned and  sent  to supermarkets,  who  knows..

      • samsonn says:

        The really good stuff is solid when u shake the can. The more noise means there is more coconut water than coconut solids.

      • Susan says:

        Temperature makes all of the difference on the solidity of coconut milk. If it’s cold there will be almost no water. If it’s room temperature there will be about 1/2 water.

  271. Darlene says:

    turn the can upside down just before opening. Also great for icing, melt a bag of choc chips and the thick coconut milk and whip away…its awesome

  272. Susan says:

    I put the bowl and beaters in the freezer before whipping — even with the water it whips up thick and creamy. When I make ice cream I use the whipped coconut milk. The ice cream is light and you get double for every can.

  273. Hi! I realize this is somewhat off-topic however I had to ask.
    Does operating a well-established blog such as yours
    require a massive amount work? I’m completely new to running
    a blog but I do write in my journal every day. I’d like to start
    a blog so I can easily share my personal experience and
    thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips for brand
    new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it!

    didn’t know who to ask.

    Hi🙂 sorry, not really relevant, non dairy is fantastic!! Just wanted to say its not just for Paleo. We and the planet would be a lot better off if we didnt consume animal products.

    My brother suggested I might like this blog. He was entirely right.

    Yes! Finally someone writes about raspberry ketones benefits.

  284. Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite
    justification appeared to be on the web the simplest thing
    to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while
    people think about worries that they just don’t know about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the
    whole thing without having side effect , people could take a signal.

    Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

    This recipe sounds really delicious! I cannot wait to try this with many of my recipes! I bet you could make a great chocolate mousse with this!🙂 Ooooh and I just thought of an idea…Coconut Ice Cream using this with blackberries! Oh yum! The ideas are endless! This would be great as an after dinner dessert here in Alaska! Or you could top your coffee or cocoa with some of the cream.

    I used the same exact organic coconut milk. Mine did not harden after a few days in the fridge. What does this mean?

    • Gabriella says:

      I bought some Thai milk lately that was as hard as a rock.I was amazed cause it never happened before.

  290. Robyn says:

    I used the exact same can and refrigerated over night and there was a tiny bit of cream at the top and it wasn’t thick like your picture and this is my third time trying it! What gives?!

  291. Leigh ANne says:

    I made coconut whipped cream this morning and it was GREAT. I wish I had some vanilla would have made it better but it was AWESOME and my girls loved it. I was wondering it you can take the same cream and churn it into butter? I know you can do it with dairy (cow) cream but have not been able to find it on the internet. Everything is Coconut butter (whipped coconut flakes) Not the same thing in my opinion. I will be trying this in the next few days!

  292. Jessica says:

    How long does the cream last after whipping?
