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.
