The coconut cream MUST be cold, so it whips up properly.
We have found that the Trader Joe brand works the best for this recipe.
If you do not have access to this product look for “Thai Kitchen” brand full fat coconut milk.
If you use coconut MILK, you will need TWO cans, since you will be spooning the coconut cream off the top of the chilled coconut milk.
1. Scoop the coconut cream into the bowl of a stand mixer, fitted with the whisk attachment.
2. Whip on high speed until it just starts to thicken, then add 1 tablespoon sugar.
3. Whip to combine, then taste for sweetness. If it is sweet enough for you, great, if not add more sugar.
4. Add vanilla.
5. Continue to whip until the cream is very thick and makes fairly stiff peaks when you lift the whisk.
Cover and put the whipped cream in the refrigerator where it will keep for a week. Before using, rewhip it briefly with a large balloon whisk to fluff it back up.
