Dairy-Free Thick Cream

Thick Cream
1 1/2oz (45g) creamed coconut
1/2 pkt silken tofu
pinch salt
2 tsp vanilla essence
1oz (30g) icing sugar
1. Melt the creamed coconut in a pan over a very low heat. Cool slightly.
2. Place the creamed coconut into a food processor with the remaining ingredients and blend well. Chill and serve.

The secret of this recipe is the creamed coconut which thickens the cream up once it is put in the fridge to chill. It is rich and a great alternative to thick cream made with cows’ milk.

Update 24 May 2013
We now replace the creamed coconut with coconut oil which makes for a lighter cream without the slight coconut taste. Heat the coconut oil until it as only just melted, then cool slightly. Also the silken tofu can be steamed for five minutes to give a ‘cleaner’ taste.
