Vegan whipped cream, or whipped cream made from coconut milk/cream is not a new concept. But I was playing around with some different flavors and thought it would be good to share.

To make it vegan, you are basically replacing the heavy whipping cream for coconut cream. I like the Trader Joe's brand of coconut cream, and there are plenty available online (including Thrive).

If you can't find coconut cream, you can use full-fat coconut milk. When you refrigerate the full-fat (not light) coconut milk, the solids will separate from the liquids and you can use the solid as the cream. One can of coconut milk should give you about 1 cup coconut cream after separated.

Then you'll just whip it up, add a little sweetener and vanilla extract, and you've got yourself some whipped cream!

This post says 4 flavors, but if you're including the basic recipe then you've got 5.

To make vanilla flavor, simply add more vanilla extract and/or scrape the beans from a vanilla bean.

To make a peanut butter flavor, I didn't even add vanilla or sugar first but it might depend on your choice of peanut butter.  I simply use 3 tablespoons of melted peanut butter to the plain whipped coconut cream.

Especially if you use a natural peanut butter, this one will be thicker.

For the cinnamon flavor, just add a teaspoon of ground cinnamon.

A note about keeping the coconut cream cold: it is important! You can tell with the cinnamon whipped cream picture that it wasn't as cold and therefore didn't whip as well. Only my impatience to blame.
