*My favorite brand of full-fat coconut milk is Aroy-D. It is free of any additives (the only ingredients are coconut and water), is high in fat content (60% and more is ideal), contains very little liquid at the bottom, and whips really well.
*Place the can of coconut milk in the coldest part of the refrigerator overnight. Make sure not to shake or tip the can to encourage separation of the cream and liquid.
Note: very rarely, you may get a can of coconut milk that is chalky and hard or won’t firm up. So, I like to always keep two cans of coconut milk (or coconut cream) in the refrigerator just in case.
**Prep time does not include chilling the coconut milk (~12 hours).
