Simple Paleo Whipped Cream
- Make your powdered sugar: add the sweetener and tapioca to a food processor or high speed blender and pulse 10-20 times until powdered fine. Run it through a fine mesh sifter to remove clumps. Set aside.
- In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, whip the coconut cream, vanilla and liquid as needed until smooth.
- Add the powdered sugar and salt and beat until light and fluffy. This could take anywhere from 2-5 minutes and you may need to stop a couple times to scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl to make sure everything is completely incorporated.
- Serve immediately or refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
Coconut sugar works very well for making powdered sugar. I imagine you could use raw sugar or granulated honey successfully too. Stevia or monk fruit sweetener also work but they are already pretty finely ground so you will need a high speed blender to ground them finely. If you prefer things on the less-sweet side, start with 1/4 cup of the granulated sweetener and add additional sweetener 1 tablespoon at a time until it reaches your desired sweetness. This cream is really versatile! Feel free to add flavorings as desired, such as cinnamon or peppermint extract. Simply add in 1/4 teaspoon increments until you reach your desired flavor.
