Note from Angela Liddon, author of Oh She Glows Every Day: “Some brands of canned coconut milk are better than others for making whipped cream, and some cans of the same brand may even vary quite a bit. For whatever reason, the cream and water in some brands or cans does not separate. A few of the most consistent brands for making coconut-whipped cream are: Thai Kitchen full-fat coconut milk, Trader Joe’s Coconut Cream, and Native Forest. I keep a few cans of full-fat coconut milk in my fridge at all times so I have backups in case I get a “dud.” If you happen to get a dud, don’t be discouraged. Try out one of the brands I’ve listed here, and be sure to chill it for at least 24 hours. If all else fails, So Delicious Coco Whip is a handy store-bought alternative to homemade coconut whipped cream. You can find it in the freezer section of some grocers like Whole Foods”.
