Vegan whipped or whipping cream?

#1 Postby compassionategirl » Tue Nov 15, 2005 9:40 pm

Well, I slept for a few hours and now I am back up (sleeping pattern is all messed up now because I had to pull an all-nighter yesterday).

Anyway, my question is as the title of this thread suggests:

Is there a vegan version of a whipped or whipping or whippable "cream"? I know that Silk has a coffee "creamer". Has anybody ever tried whipping this to see if you can turn it into whip cream?

Any ideas or info? And please dont tell me to use silken tofu. That would make it more like a pudding instead of a whipped cream topping. :(

If you don't mind ordering in Germany...

www.soyatoo.de

It's very close to cow cream, comes as spraying cream or to be whipped.
All organic ingredients.
No one said it would be easy.

You must be psychic CG as I was just discussing this with someone yesterday....

I have found 2 recipes for whipped cream that don't use silken tofu:

Coconut Whipped Cream

Ingredients:

1 can unsweetened coconut cream or coconut milk
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup soymilk powder
2 tsp vanilla powder OR
1 tbsp vanilla sugar (if used, decrease sugar slightly)

Method:

1 Put can of coconut cream/milk in fridge for 4 hours.
2 Open can, and remove the thick part at the top. Save the rest for other uses.
3 Put thick coconut cream into a chilled metal bowl.
4 With electric beaters, beat cream until thick and fluffy.
5 Gently beat in remaining ingredients.
6 Cover bowl, and chill for at least an hour.
7 Use on fruit, cakes, pies, etc., just before serving. Store in fridge. Use as soon as possible.

****************************************
Cashew Cream

Ingredients:

200g cashews
800ml apple juice
2tbs sunflower oil
icing sugar to taste
vanilla essence to taste

Method:

Bring the cashews and apple juice to the boil, then reduce heat and simmer until the cashews soften (five to ten minutes). Cover, and leave to cool for a couple of hours, or overnight.

Remove the softened cashews with a slotted spoon, and liquidise with the oil, and as little of the apple juice as possible, adding sugar and vanilla essence to taste.

The cream is delicious with fresh fruit salad, and as an ingredient in a wide variety of desserts.

Sorry, I haven't tried these recipes yet, but out of the 2, I'd try the cocount one first. :oops:

Almond Creme

1 cup blanched almonds
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup maple syrup
3/4 cup water

Blend all ingredients in blender till smooth. Good in coffee, on top of pie or by the spoonful!


You need a good blender for this.

:lol:
I know someone who thinks exactly the same and eats it's directly out of the can ;) Or on anything... baked apple with spray cream comes to my mind here - or rather, spray-can cream with apples :lol:
