dairy free cream (easy and cheap)

1. Put a can of coconut cream in the fridge for a few hours, the fat will come to the top.
2.  Chill your beaters and a metal mixing bowl too.
3. Open the can and scoop out all of the solid coconut cream. You can use the remaining liquid in a smoothie or something else but the solid stuff is what you'll whip up.
4.  Beat it till it's like whipped cream (I added 1T of icing sugar and a few drops of vanilla). 

Oh yeah this stuff is really, really good.  It'll be going on the pavalova at Christmas this year.  It stayed thick and creamy for a couple of days (till we gobbled it all up).  I'm not sure that it'd be any healthier than cream from a cow but we can all eat it and that's amazing!
