Macadamia Nut Whipped Cream

Macadamia Nut Whipped Cream

Whipped cream that's vegan, gluten-free and sugar-free...need I say more?

The Macadamia Nut Whipped Cream recipe is for all the whipped cream lovers out there. On a nutritional level, macadamia nuts are manganese powerhouses. Manganese has some beauty-causing reactions on a cellular level for our bodies. It helps initiate the production of our skin and joint loving friend, collagen. It also helps our mitochondria (powerhouse of the cells) work better - hello, metabolism.


  • 1 cup of Macadamia Nuts (chopped or halved)
  • 1 cup of Coconut Milk (creamier the better)
  • 3 tablespoons of Sweetener (your choice - honey, agave nectar or sugar)
  • 1 tablespoon of Lemon Juice
  • 1 tablespoon of Pure Vanilla Extract (or a scraping from the inside of a vanilla bean pod...divinity!)
  • Pinch of salt


Combine all above in a high-speed blender until homogenized (fully incorporated ingredients). Add 1/2 cup of melted coconut oil. Blend again until smooth and dollop away! Please note: this is an extremely high-calorie food, so you can't eat the whole bowl, but at least you won't have a tummy ache if you are sensitive to dairy.

Props to Carmella's Sunny Raw Kitchen ( for inspiring us to make our own modified version of her genius recipe and thank you, Linus Pauling Institute ( for the wealth of information on manganese.
