A year ago, I was on the AIP diet (strict version of Paleo) to help manage my autoimmune disease. One of the things I had to avoid at the time were emulsifiers, which are in everything by the way, so it was difficult for me to find coconut cream without added ingredients like guar gum.
If you’re on a similar diet that restricts emulsifiers (or you just want to avoid them anyway), good news! Trader Joe’s just added a new organic canned coconut cream with only 2 ingredients: water & organic coconut!
The price isn’t bad either, at just $2.29 a can.
This cream is great for making a dairy-free whipped cream. I just add stevia and vanilla (you can do honey in place of stevia if you prefer) and whip in my mixer. Adding unsweetened cocoa makes a delicious chocolate version!

Do you refrigerate it first before whipping it?
Yes, I refrigerate it for a day.
