  • 1 15-oz. can coconut cream*
  • 2-4 Tbsp. powdered sugar or stevia packets
  • 1 tsp. clear vanilla extract


  1. Chill the can of coconut cream in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or up to overnight. Chill the mixing bowl and whisking attachment in the refrigerator for at least an hour.

  2. When you are ready to make your coconut whipped cream, place coconut cream in the chilled bowl of a stand mixer or in a bowl with a handheld mixer. Attach the whisk attachment (or beaters) and whisk on medium speed for 2 minutes.

  3. Coconut cream will begin to thicken. Add powdered sugar to taste and vanilla extract.
  4. Continue whisking on medium speed for 1-2 minutes, or until coconut cream is to your desired consistency.
  5. If the whipping cream is not as thick as you would like, refrigerate it for a few hours to help thicken it up.

  6. Serve coconut whipped cream with your favorite pumpkin pie or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

Recipe Notes

  • If you would like to use canned coconut milk: do not shake the contents of the can and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight. When ready to make coconut whipped cream, scoop the thick layer of cream from the top of the can and proceed with the remaining instructions. (Note: you will probably need about half of the powdered sugar and vanilla extract.)
  • If you are pressed for time, shake up the can of coconut cream and put the cream, bowl, and attachment in the freezer for 1-2 hours before making.
  • To make this recipe low-carb and keto, use 2-4 packets of stevia powder in place of the powdered sugar.
