When we started Sara on a Gluten Free/ Dairy Free diet I really worried that we would struggle to find decent replacements for some favorite foods. I won’t lie…some things we are still struggling without – sour cream and yogurt come to mind.
But some of the replacement items actually kick ass and I will never return to a life without them! Coco-whip is one of those items!!
It is soooo yummy! And my daughter hates coconut flavor so trust me when I tell you that it is only a slight, slight hint of coconut flavor – which is actually sad to me as I love coconut flavor!
The texture is exactly like cool whip or any fresh whipped cream product and it is yummy on anything. I eat it right out of the tub!
Currently our favorite way to eat it is on top of a chocolate “milk” shake. They are super easy to make: Throw some cashew milk and frozen chocolate sorbet (or dairy free ice cream) into a blender. Add in a few heaping spoonful’s of a good quality dark cocoa powder and blend until smooth. Top with a big dollop of Cocowhip and serve.
So good and just in time for summer!
