How To Use Coconut Cream

Coconut cream is a concentrated version of coconut milk, and is used in many varieties of Asian curries, soups and desserts - most commonly used to "cool down" the heat of the dishes. There are so many dishes that coconut cream is used in, you can always find plenty of delicious ways to use it at home!

 

Dairy Free Recipes

One of the best things about coconut cream is that you can use it as a substitute for heavy amounts of cream in recipes to not only make them dairy free - but make you feel a lot better about what you're eating. It's also super easy to work out, you just replace the amount of cream the recipe calls for with the same amount of coconut cream. If you don't want to go modifying recipes, then there are plenty of recipes out there that use coconut cream as is. We have provided some for you to try below - so get experimenting!


Strawberry Cheese Cake Ice Cream

This beautiful dessert dish not only sounds delicious, it also only has a few ingredients. Don't forget that it will be dairy free because you're using coconut cream and it is sugar free too - what more could you want?

 

To make this dessert all you need is our coconut cream powder, cream cheese, vanilla extract, xanthan gum, and a handful of diced strawberries. Simply combine the coconut cream and cream cheese in a bowl and add the vanilla, xanthan gum and strawberries. Fold all these ingredients together and let it freeze in a pan for 2 hours and there you have it - you've made a delicious dairy free, sugar free ice cream.

 

Quick Chicken Satay

Coconut cream is great to use when you can't handle the heat, or just love the taste and flavour of coconut. All you will need is chicken breasts, peanut butter, garlic, coconut cream, chilli powder, lime and a variety of herbs of your choice. Mix all the ingredients together to marinate the chicken in, cook on skewers and serve with steamed jasmine rice - too easy!

 

Coconut and Ginger Rice

Spice up the traditional coconut rice by adding some ginger this time. All you need to do is mix your coconut cream with some water in a saucepan, then and the basmati rice and peeled ginger. Bring the rice to boil, and then let simmer for 10 minutes before draining and discarding the ginger. Serve this flavoursome rice with shaved toasted coconut and sliced spring onions as a complementary side dish to your Asian meals.
