Soyatoo! Rice Whip
I’d just like to take this moment to mention Soyatoo!’s Rice Whip. I’ve tried their whippable soy topping before, but this one is really close to whipped cream from a can. It doesn’t quite taste the same, but the texture is there, not to mention the convenience of a can with a piping tip! It contains no sweeteners that I wouldn’t recommend and it appears to be vegan, gluten-free and nut-free. And of course, it is lactose-free. I used it to top the Engineer’s strawberry shortcakes, and his pavlovas the following week, and I really love it. It makes me feel like a “normal” person again to have this can of compressed topping for desserts.
As the instructions say, though, you do have to let it come to room temperature 10 to 15 minutes before using it. There didn’t seem to be that much in the can, but then again I don’t remember whipped cream cans to be bottomless. I’ll definitely buy this again!
