Today’s Secret Ingredient for Friday Foodie Fix is Whipped Cream. Don’t email me, I realize it’s not a single ingredient but it is fun to make and eat. Living dairy free has forced me to get creative making whipped cream. I think I finally found a whipped cream to rival any made with dairy. The whipped cream I make from coconut milk is so luxurious and delicious.
This week was my oldest son’s 21st birthday, so I thought I would take this whipped cream and use it for an icing for his birthday cake. First I baked the Carrot Cake found in Elana Amsterdam’s Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook. For more great recipes with almond flour visit her website, Elana’s Pantry. For the icing I used my recipe for whipped cream and added 1 TBS of coconut milk. I don’t even melt it, I just added it to the mixer. It worked great and 3 days later it’s held up great on the cake and in the middle layer.
So what are you creating with whipped cream? I can’t wait to see what you share this week. Please make sure you share the link love and add the link to this page onto your recipe page. For all of the rule and past ingredients, please visit the Friday Foodie Fix Page (now alphabetical).
