Fresh Fruit Platter with Coconut Whipped Cream



Inspiration from the site Whipping cream recipe c/o Apartment Therapy. You will need a stand up mixer or hand held mixer with an egg whip attachment to prepare the coconut whipping cream. Our platter consisted of almost exclusively local seasonal fruit: watermelon, nectarines, Tuscan cantaloupe, strawberries and raspberries.

How to Make Fresh Fruit Platter with Coconut Whipped Cream


  1. PREPARE THE COCONUT WHIPPING CREAM: At least 1 hour before you begin, refrigerate the can of coconut cream. Open the can carefully without shaking it and remove the thick portion only. Place in a stand up mixer or hand held mixer.
  2. Using the egg whip attachment, whip the coconut cream for 5 minutes on Speed 10 (the highest). After a few minutes the coconut cream should start to become airy and expand. Continue to whip 5 minutes total.
  3. Now add the sugar, vanilla (if using vanilla pod, scrape the seeds into the bowl), and rosewater. Whip another 1 minute. Transfer to a serving bowl. If desired, garnish the whipping cream with fresh rose petals or crushed dried rose petals.
  4. FRUIT PLATTER: Arrange the fruit on a platter. Serve fruit with the coconut whipping cream.
