You knew it was coming right? It is very obvious that I need to make coconut whipped cream out of everything. We dip with it, frost, fill and eat it by the spoonful.

Do you like sweet tart combinations? Great than this vegan cranberry whipped cream will be your best friend!

Remember the Coconut Cream Pie with Chocolate Ganache I shared recently ~ this would be very good in that recipe. The perfect Thanksgiving, Christmas or holiday party dessert (lightened up of course!)

You will also want spoon it over your cornbread. The recipe for that is coming soon, stay tuned.

Don’t forget to try my pumpkin version too. A smooth & creamy blend that tastes like pumpkin pie.

Vegan Cranberry Whipped Cream



  • Puree your homemade cranberry sauce until smooth. Chill coconut milk in your refrigerator overnight undisturbed. Remove from the fridge and gently turn the can upside down, but be sure not to shake it. Open the can and pour off all of the clear coconut water (you can save this for shakes and drinks.) Put the thick cream in your mixer bowl, whip a bit until it starts to firm up. Add the cranberry sauce & sweetener, continue to whip until you have soft fluffy peaks. Chill until ready to serve.
  • If your coconut cream is all ready very thick you can put all the ingredients in the mixing bowl at one time.
  • Notes
  • Coconut milk tends to vary from one brand to another. Some thicken to a dense cream quickly, others take more whipping to get peaks. Experiment with different brands to get the texture you prefer. I love them all!

Mmmhhh, deliciously seasonal!

This sounds awesome! What a cool idea for the holidays.Do you know how long this would stay a whipped cream consistency when stored in the refrigerator?


5 Marla November 6, 2012 at 10:17 am

Grace, ours does great in the fridge for 4-5 days. Sometimes longer, if it lasts that long.


6 Anna @ Crunchy Creamy Sweet November 6, 2012 at 9:31 am

This is brilliant! Another way for me to enjoy cranberries! I’m thinking chocolate layer cake dressed up with this whipped cream – yes!


7 Marla November 6, 2012 at 10:18 am

Anna, that is such a great idea to use this for chocolate cake. In the same way that raspberries & tart cherries are awesome with chocolate this would be too!

Wow, you’ve gone all out with the coconut whipped cream. Jeez… and I considered my 3 flavors quite the exploration but you’ve gone to a whole other level. I absolutely love the idea of adding cranberry sauce to the mix. I LOVE cranberry sauce something fierce!

Hi Leanne!! So glad to hear the whipped cream & cranberry fascinations are contagious 😉
