Coconut cream is a great alternative to ordinary whipping creams as it has got good fats and more nutritional content. The cream can be used in sweets and as a thickening agent in curries, soups and smoothies.
The cream has got a creamier and thicker texture. The recipe takes a little more time than other creams as you have to keep the coconut milk overnight in a refrigerator for forming the cream. But the cream will be really worth your time and a healthy one. So, let’s get started.
Coconut cream can be made by refrigerating coconut milk overnight to form a layer of cream. Then, transfer the cream to a chilled bowl and add vanilla and sugar and vanilla extract to it. Beat the mixture for 2 minutes and store in an air-tight container.
Now, it’s time to follow the steps of the recipe and make the cream at your home. Before that, check out the other sauce recipes as well.
