Coconut cream is a keto staple because it's low in carbs and high in fats. It's the ideal dairy alternative if you follow a dairy-free keto diet.

Most of you are familiar with canned coconut cream (aka creamed coconut milk); it's thick, creamy and very rich which makes it ideal for making satisfying low-carb desserts such as fat bombs and it's a great addition to low-carb curries.

But what if you could make whipped coconut cream that is just as fluffy and delicious as dairy cream? I found that the iSi Whipper is the perfect tool for mousse-like coconut cream!

Using an electric mixer or a hand whisk will somewhat do the job but you will never be able to get that amazingly airy mousse effect of the iSi Whipper. So how does it work? In an iSi Whipper, soluble gas (usually nitrous oxide) is released into the liquid to be foamed by pressure. This method produces beautifully light, airy and creamy results.

Apart from whipped dairy cream and coconut cream, you can use the iSi Whipper to prepare sauces, mousse and other fluffy low-carb desserts and snacks.

You can keep the cream plain or add sugar-free vanilla extract or cinnamon. Coconut cream is naturally sweet but you can optionally add a few drops of stevia or 1 to 2 tablespoons of powdered low-carb sweetener such as Erythritol or Swerve.

Tips for the Best Whipped Coconut Cream

  • Always use canned coconut milk and avoid using liquid carton coconut milk. Carton coconut milk contains less fat than full-fat canned coconut milk. It wouldn't result in thick cream as it lacks thickeners such as guar gum.
  • Do use BPA-free canned coconut milk. Avoid products that are not labeled "BPA-free".
  • Do NOT refrigerate the canned coconut milk before using. Chilled coconut milk won't work in an iSi Whipper as it will be too thick and will split. If you have chilled coconut milk, use this method for creamed coconut milk instead.
  • Shake the can vigorously before pouring into the iSi Whipper.
  • Any solid pieces will almost assuredly cause sputtering, which is also why it's best if that you strain everything through a fine mesh sieve. (Note: It depends on the coconut milk. I did not use a sieve and it still produced smooth and fluffy results.)
  • Depending on the size of your iSi Whipper, you'll need to use either one iSi charger or up to two chargers for a large 1 L whipper.
  • Start by dispensing the cream very slowly. Once you see it come out, apply more pressure as needed. If you squeeze the trigger too hard, you'll just end up depressurising the whipper and the cream will spatter.
  • If you are not planning to use the cream immediately, make sure to store it in the fridge on its side. Shake it again after you chill it and before you dispense any cream. This is very important as otherwise the cream may not come out evenly and may spatter.
  • Make sure to thoroughly clean the iSi Whipper between uses and check for any blockages to avoid spattering.

  1. Before you start, check the tips above for best results. Vigorously shake a can of room temperature coconut milk. (You can use up to 2 cans depending on the size of your iSi Whipper. The maximum capacity will be indicated on the outside of the whipper.) Pour into the iSi Whipper, fill up to the maximum filling capacity indicated on the outside of the bottle.
  2. Place the lid (with the rubber seal inside) on top and screw on tightly. Screw on the charger holder with the inserted iSi cream charger. Shake vigorously for a few seconds, as if it were a cocktail shaker.
  3. Let it rest for a few seconds, and then shake again. Repeat 4 to 5 times.
  4. Unscrew the empty charger and screw a protective cup onto the piercing mechanism.
  5. Holding the iSi whipper head down, gently press to release the fluffy cream into a bowl or directly on top of any keto treats. How To Make Perfectly Fluffy Whipped Coconut Cream

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

Thanks for the tips on the whipping siphon and coconut creme, I've been thinking of using it on a Codfish dish with some curry powder, now I can hardly wait to try it!

Sounds delicious!

I would like to see sweet and salty combo sauce for ribs, chicken etc.

This was super!! Thank you so much for idea to use the ISI, it really was the perfect application and made fluffy light whipped cream.  I ended up using three cartridges and give it some cooling time in the fridge.

Glad you enjoyed! I wonder how that would work with flavoured cream. I'm contemplating to try making chocolate mousse this way 😊
