This is something different, and yet so flavorful I wonder why I didn’t think of this before. This vegan, dairy free sweet potato whipped cream is the perfect topper on any fall or holiday dessert.
When I was creating my gluten free sweet potato bread pudding recipe, I had some extra sweet potato puree left over.
Mr. Fearless Dining was in the kitchen and joked that I should make a flavorful whipped cream out of some of the extra puree. It could taste great on any dessert!
Well, why not? Dairy free? Even better :-).
This recipe is so easy, you can make it anytime. Canned full fat coconut milk is my go to dairy free milk to make whipped cream. I always have a can in my refrigerator just in case. (*Note coconut milk really only whips up thick and creamy if it is really cold so put a can in towards the back of your refrigerator where it is coldest.) I don’t add sweetener to the coconut milk if I am making regular whipped cream. My kids, however, like their whipped cream sweet so you will have to gauge your audience.
After making this, I realize if I had more sweet potato puree, it would have made an incredible mousse. The flavor is subtle, and will add just a touch of sweetness to those holiday pies and desserts.
