½tsp.Unflavored Gelatin + ¼ cup cold wateroptional, see notes below
See the instructions above if you don't have a whipped cream dispenser.
Combine the coconut milk, coconut cream, sweetener, and lemon juice in a large mixing bowl and mix until well combined. It can be mixed by hand, with a blender, or a food processor.
If using gelatin (see notes) place the water in a microwaveable safe container and evenly sprinkle the gelatin over the water to soften. Once softened, place in microwave and bring to a boil, 15 - 20 seconds. Whisk with a fork until fully dissolved, removing any clumps as they will clog the dispenser.
Pour into coconut milk mixture and mix well.
These are the instructions for the Otis Classic whipped cream dispenser - follow manufacturer's directions for your brand of dispenser.
Pour the cream into the whipped cream dispenser and screw on lid.
Then, add a charger to the charger holder.
Screw the charger holder firmly until the N2O is released with a hissing noise. Shake the dispenser vertically 4-8 times and place it in the refrigerator to chill. If you omit the gelatin, it will need to chill 2 to 3 hours. The cream will be runny if not chilled long enough. If you used gelatin, it will only need to be chilled for maybe 30 minutes - if at all!
Before serving, shake container vigorously several times pointing down, forcing the cream towards the nozzle. Gently pull trigger to serve. If the cream has trouble dispensing, set on counter 15 to 30 minutes before serving.
Stays good in the refrigerator for 2 - 3 days.
When unscrewing the lid after use, point it away from your body and into the sink as the contents have a lot of pressure and may explode! This can not only make a big mess but can be dangerous.
For Coconut Cream, place a can of full-fat canned coconut milk in the refrigerator for 24 hours then scoop out the coagulated cream (sometimes the Thai Kitchen doesn't need refrigerated but I would plan on it).
I only recommend Thai Kitchen, Sprouts, or Native Forest brands of coconut cream. Other brands may not separate or leave an aftertaste.
The gelatin is optional. It helps stabilize the cream, hold it's shape better and allows you to eat it right away. Thus, avoiding a 3 hour wait period while it chills. However, after 24 hours it causes the cream to become too thick to dispense. It's up to you if you would like to add it or not.
For the keto powdered sweetener, you can use any liquid or powdered sweetener you prefer. I like to use powdered monk fruit allulose blend or powdered allulose because they dissolve beautifully and don't leave an aftertaste. While an erythritol-based keto sweetener will work, even powdered erythritol can sometimes be grainy and leave an aftertaste.
