Show/Hide comments [ 5 ] I made the coconut whipped cream last week and I have to admit it is really good. I dislike coconut but it is such a light flavor in this. Although mine didn't get so fluffy. 2 agree Reply Yummy! Also, the fact that this is vegan means it's lactose free, which is great for those of us who are or love people who are lactose intolerant. (this may be an obvious statement, but it's only recently that I had the lightbulb moment of vegan=lactose free) How much water is left after you scoop out the coconut cream from the cans? Can it be used for something else? Can you just drink it? 4 agree Reply I think it may vary a bit from brand to brand depending on how much fat they leave in. but the cheap brand I bought I'd say is was a teensy bit more than half of the can. I didn't use anything with the watery part myself as I forgot about it, but I'm sure you could use it to add in hints of coconut into foods. I was going to do something with chicken (I wanted thai food that night) 1 agrees Reply About half a can is left with coconut water. You and drink it, mix it a smoothie, or use it as a low fat milk replacer in some recipes 1 agrees Reply I was just thinking about how much I miss whipped cream and berries since my pregnancy-induced lactose-intolerance set in… this is about the most perfect thing ever. 2 agree Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
