Top Tips – Rich, Versatile Vegan Cream
This recipe makes a thick, spreadable cream. If you want a thicker cream increase the amount of cornflour to 2.5 tablespoons. If you want a thinner cream reduce the amount of cornflour to 1 tablespoon.
Sweetness! This has a small amount of agave syrup in it. Use the sweetener of your choice. I often make this without any sweetener. It’s up to you how much, or how little, you add.
Store in an airtight container, in the fridge, for up to two days.

Recipe – Rich, Versatile Vegan Cream
Serves makes just under 200 millilitres of cream
Preparation time 10 minutes
Cooking time 5 minutes
Ingredients – Rich, Versatile Vegan Cream
1.5 tablespoons cornflour
125 millilitres non-dairy milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon agave syrup (optional or sweetener of your choice)
60 grams vegan margarine (suitable for baking)
Method – Rich, Versatile Vegan Cream
1. Add the cornflour to a small pan and add the non-dairy milk slowly and stir to slake the cornflour. Mix well to ensure there are no lumps. Add the vanilla extract and agave syrup (if using) and place on a medium heat
2. Stir gently and constantly until the mixture thickens and comes to a simmer. Simmer gently for 30-60 seconds. Remove from heat and cool quickly by placing the base of the pan in a bowl of cold water
3. Place the margarine in a mixing bowl and beat until smooth and soft. Slowly add the cornflour mixture a little at a time and beat until you have a rich, smooth, creamy consistency. If it seems a too thick add a little more non-dairy milk. Chill until required.
