This gluten free, vegan, and refined sugar free chocolate coconut whipped cream is the perfect addition to any dessert.  It also works as a healthy fruit dip!  This delicious treat takes less than 10 minutes to whip up and only calls for 5 ingredients. 



  • 1 can full fat coconut milk (refrigerated overnight)
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup*
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar*
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract 


  1. Refrigerate the can of coconut milk overnight.  This will allow the liquid to separate from the cream.  We only want to use the thick cream for this recipe.
  2. Place your mixing bowl in the freezer for 10 minutes. 
  3. Open the can of coconut milk and scoop the thick cream that has risen to the top of the can and put it in a large mixing bowl or stand mixer.
  4. Using a stand mixer or hand mixer, whip the coconut cream until you can form soft peaks with the cream (about 3 minutes).
  5. Mix in the remaining ingredients until well incorporated.
  6. I recommend chilling the coconut whipped cream for an hour or so, but you can eat it right away if desired. 


You can use any sweetener you would like.  I recommend adding 1 tbsp at a time until you have reached your desired sweetness.
