After discovering the magic that cashews can work whenever you need to cook something creamy, but dairy-free, I've used them in oh so many ways, like for this savory cashew cheese sauce, or this creamy vegan pesto sauce!
But cashews are very versatile when it come to sweets too!
And since I love the scent and taste of coffee (even though I belong to the group of those who don’t deal well with caffeine, so it’s always decaf for me, le sigh) I thought well let’s give it a try!
As always it took a few tries before I finally nailed this delicious dairy free mocha whipped cream and I'm happy to share with you.
I mean not just the recipe, literally, I'd love to make a bucket of this homemade espresso whipped cream and just eat spoonfuls of it all together with you. Like a coffee cream party.
This mocha whipped cream is made without instant coffee and without heavy cream and it contains no dairy.
And if you want to keep it super simple you can simply use cashews, espresso and a sugar free plant based milk and you will have a healthy and three ingredient coffee whipped cream!

TIPS and SUBSTITUTIONS
You absolutely can, either by replacing regular sugar with the sweetener of your choice, or by using a naturally sweet(er) plant based milk, like rice or almond
Yes it is 100% naturally gluten free (do check that the ingredients you use are certified gluten free and choose a gluten free vegan milk)
This vegan whipped cream is perfect as cake icing and I suggest to triple the quantity of the ingredients to have enough to fill and frost a standard 9 inch cake.
It is not, it is creamy and a bit denser than regular mocha cream, but it holds perfectly when used as filling and frosting on cakes and cupcakes!
This coffee flavored whipped cream is just scrumptious on its own, served in small cups with a dusting of cocoa powder on top!
