The key to success in this recipe is all in the preparation.
I have tried almost all coconut milks out there and have found Trader Joe’s Coconut Cream to be the best option with the best turn out and least waste.
Also, the longer you refrigderate…the better. Many sites will say 24 hours, but really I find again that anything after 48 is best. Also, if you are in a pinch and forgot to do this ahead of time, you can always throw in the freezer for 20-25 minutes. Just want to make sure contents have thoroughly cooled (not froze) before whipping.
Lastly, this trick has been handed down to me by my mama. Before you whip your cream, freeze a metal bowl for about 20-30 minutes. This will ensure that your cream stays cool while you whip the crap out of it!
