Quest for the Perfect Vegan Whipped Cream . . . Anybody in?

swarmqueen | Apr 21, 2012 02:18 AM

Fellow Vegans and Non-Dairy Whippers:

I'm on the quest for the perfect vegan whipped cream. I bought a dispenser (Whip-It brand) and have been experimenting with different variations using a coconut cream base, but each batch has had at least one major flaw.

One batch had perfect taste but the texture was runny and not fluffy at all. One batch was fluffy but the taste was bland. One batch was sputtery—sometimes fluffy, sometimes just NO2 making a mess.

I've also realized that the cream is very sensitive to temperature in the dispenser. If I don't leave the canister in the fridge overnight, it seems to have very unreliable results.

Has anyone had success with a dispenser?

I'm going to try some experiments with different emulsifiers, different sweeteners, and see how the addition of oil might affect the final result.
