I used this agar powder, and it worked great! :

For the Pumpkin Whipped Cream:

Paleo (ish) Pumpkin Whipped Cream- sugar free!

Instructions:

  1. Set can of organic coconut milk and mixing bowl in the fridge overnight
  2. Open can and remove all the solid coconut cream (you can save the liquid coconut water for other uses)
  3. Place 1/4 cup pumpkin, stevia drops, and pumpkin pie spice in mixing bowl
  4. Add the coconut cream in bowl, & beat until fluffy (3-4 minutes or so)
  5. Serve right away, or cover and keep in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

*Best if you set beaters and mixing bowl in freezer for a few minutes before you begin
