What It Is
Much like dairy cream, coconut cream is the fat that rises to the top of coconut milk. When you buy a can of coconut milk, you often have to mix the fatty coconut cream that solidified at the top back into the coconut water at the bottom. If you don’t have to do this, your coconut cream probably has added binders and emulsifiers and you might not want to use it.
Eat/Drink the Fat
Some recipes call for using just the coconut cream, and depending on your local grocery store, you can usually buy coconut cream by itself. Not only is coconut cream Paleo-friendly, it’s arguably the best part of the coconut. It’s fatty and creamy and can be used much like you would use regular cream. It’s excellent for desserts and you can even make whipped coconut cream.
