Dairy-free whipped cream exists, but can be hard to find. Even when you do find it, it might not taste right. In the middle of winter, sometimes a cup of non-dairy hot cocoa or a slice of cake just needs a nice topping of whipped cream. 

Fortunately, Silk recently released dairy-free heavy whipping cream. Traditional whipped cream is often made using milk, cream, or heavy whipping cream. I've been in need of some good whipped cream lately, so when a representative asked if I wanted to try some, I couldn't wait for it to arrive. 

The heavy whipping cream comes in 16-ounce cartons which is more than enough to make all the whipped cream you could need. It's made with coconut and sunflower oil, which means it's safe for those of us who also can't have soy products. There isn't any sugar, so you do have to add sweetener and flavoring to your whipped cream.
