ALL PRAISE THE TRADER JOE’S GODS – am’I right!? 🙌
Released just in time for the holidays, Trader Joe’s Coconut Whipped Topping will be your favorite treat for all of your holiday goodies, including my infamous Vegan Clear Pumpkin Pie.
Of course, you can always make your own Coconut Whipped cream whenever the inspiration hits (try The Minimalist Baker’s super easy Coconut Whipped Cream); but there’s nothing more satisfying than the feeling of freshly whizzed whipped cream from a can.
Can to mouth? Guilty 🤚.
Plus, having a can of vegan whipped cream is super convenient to top your Trader Joe’s Almond Nog when the mood strikes. Just be warned, these puppies have been flying off the shelves, and are usually sold out before the evening rush so go early or call ahead and have them check their inventory.

This coconut whipped topping has a pleasant coconut taste – obvious, yes – but I was initially expecting little-to-no coconut flavor and more of a vanilla flavor. It was a nice surprise, and it’s okay because the flavor is subtle and not overpowering (yet, coconut haters may be turned off).
It was not too sweet and reminded me of the canned stuff I used to eat pre-vegan, but with a nice coconut-y undertone.
I loved the stiffness and texture of this whipped topping when it’s fresh out of the can, but it doesn’t hold up as long as traditional whipped cream and tends to soften in a matter of minutes.
It does tend to have more of a waxier mouth-feel, in comparison to dairy whipped cream.
At $3 a bottle, this item is a great deal. Sure, you can make it yourself for cheaper, but the convenience of having it ready in the fridge is worth every penny. Compared to similar soy based vegan whipped toppings, this item comes in at half the cost making it an exceptional value.
Overall, the convenience and price makes this a great item – but it’s the flavor and unique quality of the Trader Joe’s Coconut Whipped Topping that makes it good enough for all of your sweet treats.
