View Full Version : Whipped Cream?
05-09-2006, 05:53 PM
Sunday; I got 2 Thai Young Coconuts and 2 white Hard Shell coconuts. It was my experiment day. I had 'creams' (and containers all over!) and the winner is! whipped cream! it was so fluffy, it was so smooth. I divided this into 6 little bowls and played with different portions. All of them were delicious but this one; wow; it was just like whipped cream. I followed the instructions see link
then added agave just to make it sweet. the other bowls I added lemon, then 'sour crout' blended. then honey, then blended fruits. All were good! Now, that I got the base; I'm going to play with this to make 'real' sour cream! Looking for ideas, though. Any of you adventurous enough to play with this and report your findings? Have Fun! I'm looking for 'sour cream' but no nuts. RAWgards Joz

thank you so much...I tried a whipped cream recipe this evening and although the taste was fairly decent, the texture wasn't. I'll look forward to trying this.
p.s. I'd love to hear about your sour cream if you succeed. I need to find as many nut-free recipes due to some health challenges.

EastCoastie: you say you tried this recipe:::::the one with the Champion? or was it a different recipe?
the texture wasn't good? Mine was so smooth and fluffy! I then added different ingredients to different bowls to try different flavors. Question for you, what about the texture you did not like? Joz
did you check out the Nut-free crusts post? there are several recipes for no nuts crusts there.

would this work just in a juiceman junior juicer do you think? What did you use? I've never even thought of trying to juice a coconut!

Thanks for posting wyjoz! Often the whipped creams you see are cashew-based, so it's nice to have a recipe since "raw" cashews aren't normally raw. Would it make a decent icing for something like a carrot cake?
For sour cream Raw Food Real World has a good recipe for Tart Sour Cream (page 303). (Based on coconut meat, lemon juice, ACV, white miso, water, cashews and salt, maybe you could play with that). It's a nice book if you feel like buying it. They serve the sour cream with their enchiladas.

I am sorry I didn't clarify...I tried a different recipe (it was cashew based) and though the taste was pretty o.k., it was more like a pudding that whipped cream.
Thanks for the info on the post for the nut-free crusts. I will check that out.

shadow; I never had any of the juicers, just Champion. It grined the coconut meat quite well. And instead of juice it came out as a thick coconut cream.
exurb; I have that book. i'll check the recipe and play with it. I made a frosting with coconut base on a banana cake it was great. Let it refridgerate a little and it spreads fine.

EastCoastie: I made nut creams and yes they'r o.k. but this was fluffy just from the champion. Just a note it will get hard in the refridgerator so if you want 'whipped cream' do it just before serving and keep it whipped.

and now just for the experiment I'll Champion Cashews and see what comes out--i m looking for 'fluffy' or 'whipped' .
