So, I am looking for some sort of substitute for whipped cream - non dairy. Any ideas? Wanted to make this: http://simplygluten-free.blogspot.com/2008...-cake-with.html

I haven't tried this in a recipe, but it might work. I left half a carton of Sharon's Coconut Sorbet out of the freezer for a couple of hours. I opened the carton, expecting soup. But it looked like it was still frozen. It was cold and about the consistency of whipped cream. I tasted a little - it had a definite coconut taste, but reminded me of whipped cream. I told myself that the next time I've having a treat that needs whipped cream I'm going to leave out some sorbet on purpose and try it.

You can put a couple cans of coconut milk in the fridge (make sure it's regular, not light coconut milk). The next day open them up and drain the liquid off the top. Use mixers to mix the creamy part with some sugar and vanilla. It's really good. :D

Mangoo......thank you, thank you, thank you! What a great idea to use coconut milk. I am lactose intolerant, allergic to milk, soy and casein and this sounds like the best substitute. I have tried some recipes using Vance's and Better Than Milk and they were not good at all. My solution at the time was to make meringue and that was the closest I could come.

I've been using a lot of coconut oil (the expensive kind) and it is worth every penney. I hope additional food allergy tests don't come up positive for coconut allergy....that's all I need!

I hope you like it. I forgot to say that I use powdered sugar. Also, a coconut milk with a bit of guar gum in it seems to work well (if you tolerate guar gum). It's best to experiment lots until you get the texture and flavor that you like (I never measure anything).

I made it for dairy eaters last Thanksgiving and Christmas and they loved it. It's awesome on fruit (such as frozen blueberries etc.) :)

My year long search for an acceptable (dairy,soy free)whipped cream topping has just ended, thanks to Mango04!!

I finally was able to try this, the consistency and taste were more than I had hoped for. After beating, it looked a bit "soft set", and I added a small amount of cornstarch. Put it in the frig, and an hour later, could not tell the difference between "my" whipped cream and hubby's cool whip. It thickened up beautifully. Oh, so good on warm chocolate pudding!! I have to admit I forgot to add the guar gum...tomorrow will use guar gum and eliminate the corn starch.

This weekend I also was able to purchase some Luna and Larrys Coconut Bliss non-dairy frozen dessert, and Turtle Mountain Purely Decadent Vanila dessert made with coconut milk......I feel like I have won the lottery! Finally, I CAN EAT.

    Thank you for all of the suggestions and information.  I will see a lot of the symptoms that I have that I didn't mention listed caused by lack of certain enzymes.  I have blood tests every 3 months. That is when I noticed my cholesterol, etc. not in check.  I eat too many carbohydrates because it causes less diarrhea than a lot of vegetables.  But in talking to 3 of my sisters they are already on medication for the problem.   One has Celiacs the other has Sjorgrens which I also have.  I'm conce
    For the fog and memory, it can be many things, the brain requires certain ratios and amounts of fat to function, it also requires b-vitamins the full spectrum among other amino acids, minerals and vitamins, nerve functions require magnesium, potassium and other things to fire right.  Celiac can hamper the ability to break down and absorb nutrients, digestive issues and enzymes can further complicate this, and trying to eat the right ratios of foods.

    I am interested in your comments about losing your memory.  I have Celiacs and IBS, etc.   Very difficult to eat a healthy diet.  One goes against the other.  The past year I have noticed a marked difference in my memory and was very concerned about it because my mother had Alzheimer's.  I had a brain scan but that is not the problem at least it doesn't show up on the MRI.  All of my blood enzymes are way out of line for my size and I'm thinking it's the diet and inability to do extensive exerci
