Top off your desserts, drinks, and more with vegan whipped cream.

The days are getting shorter and the nights are getting longer, which means the holiday season is upon us! Now’s the time for parties with friends, snuggling on the couch with our beloved companion animals, and perfecting our favorite vegan recipes. And what better way to get in the spirit of things than with hot drinks and indulgent treats? We’re enjoying them all even more this year thanks to the bounty of dairy-free whipped creams hitting the shelves. So, sit back, sip your hot cocoa, and put these coconut whipped creams at the top of your grocery list.

1. Trader Joe’s Coconut Whipped Topping
The national grocery chain has added more plant-based products to its shelves this year, and this coconut whip is just one of its latest plant-powered Trader Joe’s products you should add to your holiday arsenal (along with almond nog, turkey-less roast, and chocolate-candy cane cookies).

 

2. So Delicious CocoWhip!
Add this fluffy, airy whip to a bowl of vegan ice cream for a simple yet oh-so satisfying dessert. Go ahead and treat yourself to another scoop (or two) because the dairy-free company offers a CocoWhip! Light with half the fat of the popular original.
