Vegan Whipped Cream

If you had asked me last year if homemade vegan whipped topping was possible, I would have said no. If you had asked me several months ago, I would have the same answer. If you ask me today, I would say absolutely! Yes, homemade vegan whipped topping is absolutely possible.

I'll begin by saying that there is no tofu involved here. None. As much as I love my tofu, whipped cream it's not. This is a fluffy, ethereal topping, the perfect accompaniment to crepes, waffles or chocolate cake (yes, I've topped them all).

Another thing that's so fantastic about this vegan topping, is that you can also whip it into a marshmallow cream (thanks Bryanna, for the tip) and possibly meringue as well. Yes, Bryanna's in on the secret too. I also plan to test out chocolate and citrus versions too. I mean, really, can you ever have too many toppings?

Last week, feeling like kids in a candy shop, my husband and I quickly grabbed our mini kitchen torch, toasting the top like a campfire marshmallow or meringue-topped pie. Unbelievable! We looked at each other with sheer excitement, as we started grabbing ingredients and kitchen tools. What followed next was s'more waffles, a true breakfast of champions. Our kitchen has become a whipped topping wonderland.

Notice the little flecks of vanilla paste in the cream.

Now that I've piqued your interest, you'll have to come back for the rest of the story. I have some more experimenting to do before I can share the details. Just know that I will share, so even though you may not live close enough to come over for s'more waffles, lemon meringue tarts or chocolate fluff cake, I will send you in the right direction. I mean, come on, whipped topping and marshmallow fluff, this is the stuff of vegan dreams!

Chocolate fluff cake

As a side note, I've actually come across several new ingredients recently (or at least new to me), which take vegan desserts to a whole new level. I can't wait to share! So check back, because they're coming soon (and hopefully to a kitchen near you!).

Spice Island Vegan said...

Julie,

You and Bryanna are killing me with suspense! :-) I will be waiting since I LOVE whipped cream. Does your family feel whipped yet with all your experiments? :-) Thank you both of you for being such vegan kitchen divas.

Dreaming! said...

WOW! I have been cruising around your blog and web site for quite some time now and have had so much success with your seitan sausage, coffee cake, and so many other recipes. Can't wait for this one.

Vegyogini said...

Meringue is the one and only thing I miss as a vegan. My mom used to make us meringue cookies and angel food cake was always my favorite cake. I'm so excited that you're developing a recipe that might give me those treats back. :)

Allyson said...

rachel said...
