Whipped coconut cream frosting is vegan, creamy and super-easy to make. It's perfect on its own, for cake frosting or to add to a parfait or chilled dessert.
Looking for a lighter frosting recipe? This one is simply whipped coconut cream!
This amazing frosting is utterly delicious and goes very well with many veggie cakes and cupcakes.
Whipped creamy coconut is quick, easy, and tastes miles better than any sickly buttercream or royal icing. Since I first tried this recipe, I have always kept a few tins of coconut in the cupboard for a gorgeous icing.
You can use the small tins of pure coconut cream, or else a tin of coconut milk.
If using the coconut milk, you'll have to leave it still in the tin to allow the cream to float on top of the water and just scoop out the cream to whip.
Keeping the tin of either coconut milk or cream in the fridge overnight makes it even easier to whip.
Try it with ½ tsp vanilla for even more great taste
Dollop it onto fresh strawberries for a healthy, tasty dessert.
