I have tried Now and Zen's Hip Whip ... link below!



http://www.nowandzen.net/hipwhip.html



But was not thrilled with it. It was okay!



Any vegan whipped "cream" recipes out there?



Thanks ...

if you blend firm silken tofu (1 box) with 1/3 cup finely ground cashews, 2 tbsp arrowroot powder, 1/4 cup of maple syrup and 1/2 tsp vanilla extract, along with a dash of salt, then chill thoroughly, you'll get a whipped topping.



i make an even more complicated version that is made from a cooked flour/soy milk paste beat with margarine and icing sugar, too. it's amazing. but complicated. you want?



i really didn't think that highly of hip whip the one time i bought it either. and it was expensive!

Here is a simple recipe I use often

From The New Farm Vegetarian Cookbook



1 C soft tofu

1/4 C vegetable oil

2 T sugar

1 t vanilla

dash of salt



(may add 1 T lemon juice to use for a lemon pie)



Blend until smooth and creamy (I use my food processor)

My recipe is about the same as mushrooms', except I use a dash of arrowroot powder, and softened margarine in place of oil. When you chill it, the marg gets hard and makes it less runny.

hi, sorry this took me so long to post; i've been under the weather recently.



1/4 cup unbleached white flour

3/4 cups soy milk

1 1/4 cups powdered sugar

3/4 cups margarine

1/2 tsp vanilla

1/2 tsp almond extract



in a sauce pan, combine the flour and soy milk and cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until VERY thick. remove from heat and chill completely.



in a large mixing bowl, beat together the powdered sugar and margarine until smooth. add the extracts and beat until combined. begin adding the cooled flour/soy milk paste a couple of tbsp at a time and beating thoroughly after each addition until the mixture is completely smooth and all the paste is incorporated.



this makes a beautiful, fluffy whipped topping for pies, fruit, ice cream, etc. it can even be used as a frosting for cakes!

I already posted a recipe for vegan whipped "cream" in another thread.

Just realized I don't know how to reference other posts/threads with this new software.



This was the URL when I tried to edit it.

Blend all the above together, and chill for at least one hour. This goes well as a garnish for pies, fruit, whatever. You can also freeze it to make vanilla ice cream.

Okay .... any other suggestion on this topic?



I have a great cup of hot chocolate soy milk here, and nothing to put on top.



Actually, I tried to put Hip Whip on it, and it's okay. But I am looking for more suggestions.

you can buy a cream substitute from pangea...

its expensive, but well worth it



it says you can whip it to make whipped cream...



i havent tried that yet, i use it to make caramels, and it works perfectly

This is how I make cream, but I'm not sure it'd do for hot drinks. But it's good with strawberries.

Plain soya yoghurt - strained through a fine mesh over a jug for a few hours, turns into a nice thick yummy heap with a pile of water at the bottom of the jug. Add a tiny bit of icing sugar or sweetener and a few drops of vanilla and stir.

A tofu-less recipe to avoid that slightly grainy texture: (makes nearly 2 quarts...I've never tried a small version, but if you get the idea of the technique, you can figure it out)



soymilk 2 cups

maple syrup 1/4 cup

vanilla extract 1 1/2 tsp



canola oil 4 cups (or your favorite flovorless oil, but no olive oil unless you like olive in hot chocolate)

lemon juice 2 Tbs





Whip the first three ingredients in a blender on high

slowly drizzle in oil (as if you were making a vinaigrette) while blender is running



transfer to bowl, and while whisking, add lemon juice



the lemon will thicken it a bit



chill for an hour or so and it thickens further



I use this in the restaurant often, and, though it tastes a little mapley, you'd never guess it wasn't whipped cream!
