Has anyone experimented with any sort of fake milk whipped cream? I'm thinking there's gotta be some thing you can add to almond/soy/etc. milk to simulate whipped cream?? any ideas?

The best thing I've encountered so far is a food processor concoction of raw unsalted cashews, ice water, vanilla and maple syrup/agave/sugar.<br><br>
Most recipes seem to call for about 1 cup cashews, 1/2 to 1 cup cold water, 1 tablespoon of vanilla, and 2-4 tablespoons of maple syrup.<br><br>
But I have not been 100% thrilled with this, so I'm still looking for ideas.

I use Soyatoo whipped cream. I think it's pretty good. I'd rather make my own but I just don't have the time right now. They sell it at Whole Foods and other natural food stores. Here's a link: <a href="http://www.veganessentials.com/catalog/soyatoo-whipped-soy-topping.htm" target="_blank">http://www.veganessentials.com/catal...oy-topping.htm</a>

This is what we get too. My oldest son doesn't care for it though.<br>
I really liked Hip Whip but they don't seem to carry it any more. Soyatoo has a coconut taste to it, which is fine with me but some people don't care for it.

We blend up a package of silken tofu (thoroughly) with some sweetener and a little vanilla for whipped topping. That's what we use every Thanksgiving on our vegan pumpkin pie <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Everytime we'd buy Soyatoo, I'd have to much trouble getting it to spray out of the dang can. I don't know what I'm doing wrong with it (I do let it sit at room temp for a few minutes before using). <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/headscratch.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="headscratch">

I've made all kinds of whipped topping concoctions but ultimately my family's favorite is the easiest one for me to make and that's just to refrigerate a can of coconut milk (I think it needs to be at least overnight?) and then just carefully scoop out all the solid stuff and blend it up with sugar and vanilla just like with heavy cream. It is coconuty, but even my dh who usually doesn't care for coconut flavored foods and treats still considers this his favorite whipped topping.

I've heard this complaint a lot. I don't think it's you; I think it's bad packaging.
