Tips for acing your coconut matcha whipped cream matcha
While we had luck with just about every brand, we've heard that some brands work better than others. Try a different brand if the cream doesn't separate from the liquid properly.
For this recipe to work, you need to use chilled coconut cream. If you forgot (like we did), you can fudge it by sticking your can in the freezer and then the fridge.
The whipped cream needs to be cold, or it will start getting runny. Please keep it in the refrigerator while you're not using it! For a firmer texture, you can also make and refrigerate for ~ about 4 hours.
Get creative with how you use it! It's delightful on cakes, cupcakes, and ice cream but also pairs well on crepes and pancakes. We loved it so much that we substituted it for syrup. YUM!
