great to know................thanks


“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”

When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world

Laura, I would try it room temp and see if it's the way you want it for your "fluff". if not, then chill it. I've never tried the commercially prepared coconut cream. I've thought about it but also thought it might not be worth the price since I can make a "fluff" from the canned coconut milk.

BTW, the leftover watery liquid from the bottom of the coconut milk can be used in many ways. You can just drink it or add it to some other drink or smoothie or pour it over your pets food. I'm sure it is full of nutrients that I wouldn't want to toss out.

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

FIT_ARTIST - that's exactly why I wanted to know too. I have a really good (but very rich) gluten-free crock pot lava cake recipe that really needs something light to accompany it. Since we're now gfCf whipped cream won't do. I can't wait to try this out.. my kids will be so exited! Thanks ANGELINA.R and ANIDUCK.

I have some coconut cream in my cupboard. I guess I could just try that. Should I put it in the fridge first? So it's cold?
I'm having company for dinner tomorrow and I'm making some gluten free brownies. I think some coconut fluff would be nice on top. YUM!

Yes Angelia.R--I do the same; basically. I Keep a couple of cans in my fridge all the time and when I run out of coconut cream I take the hard white stuff off the top of the cold coconut milk, put it in a bowl and whip it up with my immersion blender with the whisk attachment on and then add some of the water from the bottom of the can to make a very fluffy, creamy thing that I store in a glass container for daily use in my tea. Delicious! I add some of the water back in so that the chilled end product doesn't get so stiff--stays like whipped cream even when cold.

Put it in the fridge overnight, scoop off the solids from the top and whip em up!
They get pretty fluffy! I used stevia and cocoa powder in mine. NOM!

Coconut Milk is so rich and creamy it made me wonder... if you beat it, will it whip up like whipped cream?
