Did you know that non-dairy whipped toppings can contain milk protein (casein), and most do? Fortunately, there are some wonderful whipped toppings that are truly dairy-free, like So Delicious CocoWhip!
Similar to Cool Whip, CocoWhip comes in a convenient tub format in both Original and Lite varieties. But unlike mainstream brands, this dairy-free whipped topping is vegan, free of top allergens, kosher parve, and even carrageenan-free.
So Delicious CocoWhip is a Cool Dairy-Free Whipped Topping
CocoWhip is sold frozen, but it thaws into an aerated, fluffy consistency that keeps in the refrigerator for a week or so. It’s light yet very creamy with a sweet and indulgent flavor. Though I didn’t see vanilla in the ingredients, CocoWhip did strike our tasters as slightly vanilla, and it didn’t seem to shout coconut. But you might detect some tropical notes in the underlying flavor.
We haven’t tested CocoWhip in some of those Kraft-style recipes, like cream pies (be sure to leave a rating and review below if you do!). But we did use it as a dessert topping and it was fabulous. The one caveat is that it melted a little oddly atop hot desserts, but that didn’t deter from the taste.
Overall, we were impressed. Our dairy eating tasters thought CocoWhip dairy-free coconut whipped topping was quite close to Cool Whip in taste and consistency, but without a drop of dairy!

Delicious but watery
This stuff tastes AHmazing. It worked sugar well folded into my vegan “mascarpone” filling for this matcha tiramisu I made for an Asian fashion night with friends. It also had the miyokos cream cheese in it and my moms friends, all of whom aren’t vegan/veg and only one of whom makes or regularly tries vegan food, LOVED it. I’d say that’s saying something. The only reason I gave it 3 stars is bc it’s super watery. It works well for adding to stuff and it tastes good on ice cream but kinda melts into it. I would seriously suggest keeping it in the freezer bc in the fridge it’s more like a sweetened coffee creamer and less like a whipped cream. I bought one of the lite ones too only bc they ran out of the full fat variety and that one was even worse. Anyways I would still buy again if they don’t have my normal whipped cream I buy at lidl (I like the oat milk and soy ones) or for making tiramisu but wouldn’t seek out bc of this.
smooth, creamy and yummy and I love it in my coffee
Wonderful flavor. Can’t keep it in the house! I bought it the first time at Walmart but they seldom have it in stock. Found it again at Harris Teeter. Yay! We love it better than cool whip.
Due to some lactose intolerance issues in our family plus trying to eat healthier, tried coco whip — it’s absolutely yummy! And I used it in a jello salad desert to rave reviews! Best of all, it’s available at my local Giant Eagle grocery as well as the organic grocery store. Try it. You’ll like it!!
Best cocowhip ever
Cocowhip is so dreamy. I love it is as close to coolwhip as possible without the scary words in the ingredients. Only Winn Dixie would carry it.
I tried another brand vegan whip when they were out called truewhip and it was awful grainy taste, a big turn off.
I’ll ask the publix manager if they can carry Cocowhip.
CocoWhip Original where to buy?
We love CocoWhip Original!! But by golly nowhere to be found anymore. We contacted So Delicious Dairy Free to find out why they are not supplying grocery stores anymore, 7-24-2021.
Response from Go Dairy Free
There are a lot of food shortages going on again, and distribution continues to be an issue for many companies. But it hasn’t been discontinued.
THE BEST in DAIRY FREE TOPPING
I can’t eat dairy and found this in our local store. It is the best I have ever had. Only complaint: It hasn’t been available in the Fred Meyer we use in quite a while.
My intro to Coco Whip
I’ve never thought of trying it since I’m not a Cool Whip fan anyway, but this was a really pleasant surprise. It’s fab with frozen or fresh cherries, other berries, or virtually any other fruit!
This is so delicious you won’t miss ice cream! You can pair it with just about any fruit or topping and it will be amazing!
Beats Cool Whip by a mile
I won’t touch Cool Whip which is a nasty concoction of hydrogenated oils, HFCS and a list of chemical ingredients. But it does have a texture that holds up in desserts where real whipped cream will fall apart. Coco Whip has that same consistency but tastes MUCH better and has none of the suspect ingredient list. It has real cane sugar, non-hydrogenated coconut oil, and some natural gums for thickeners. I can deal with that. And it really has a much fresher and more “real” taste that Cool Whip. Worth the extra cost!
I’ve been oogling this stuff for awhile, but haven’t found it anywhere! Has anyone found this in Canada yet? Specifically, Saskatchewan or Alberta?? Online shopping is awesome for allergy stuff as we live in a super tiny town, 3hrs from a city! But frozen stuff is just not feasible… 🙁 Fingers crossed someone can point me in the right direction! 🙂
I don’t think CocoWhip is in Canada yet Kerri, but you can keep an eye on So Delicious’s Canadian website – they’re quite good about updating with the products available to you: http://sodeliciousdairyfree.ca/

What stores sell this, I only have Kroger, Walmart and Meijer’s near me.
They rolled CocoWhip out to Whole Foods first, but I believe it will gain distribution in the major stores in the year ahead.
This is one of my son’s favorite things. He takes two homemade cookies or Enjoy Life cookies and puts this in between for dessert. It is one of our household “staples.” We have only found it a Whole Foods.
That sounds amazing! I’m going to have to try this.
Who else will carry this product in Central California? Will Ralley’s or Savemart carry it too?
I’m not sure, but they might eventually. You can check with them to see if they can order it in.
Delicious … Did not quite know what it was… Tasted like ice cream but thought it
Must be yogurt as was served at breakfast with fruit & Lupinola so checked with
waitress and she explained it to me. I will certainly be going back for more at Larder
In East Fremantle

WOW! And I will say it again – WOW – Best product I have discovered in 2015! I LOVE ice-cream, but I can’t eat it because I am lactose intolerant. It’s been years since I had real ice-cream down my tummy, which is great for my diet, but I am allowed for a cheat day. If it wasn’t for the dairy in ice-cream, I would indulge in cheating with some ice-cream.
I looked for dairy free ice-cream online and ran into cocowhip blended with frozen fruits recipe – what a great idea! I thought it was too good to be true, and perhaps maybe the cocowhip would taste strange on its own, But NO! It taste delicious. It’s the BEST thing EVER! It’s as good as Crest’s new sense-strips!
Now that is a review! Thanks for weighing in Maria and so awesome to hear that you enjoyed it so much! We like it, too, and I hope it will be stocked even more this summer!

I found this at my local Whole Foods today. It is amazing! A great dairy-free, healthier alternative to Cool Whip. I have not tried it thawed yet, but I ate a few bites of it frozen and it was delicious! So far, so good!!!
Delicious! Tastes like coconut pudding, could eat it as a dessert not only a topping. Bought for someone who is dairy free, but everyone liked it, had it and Cool Whip, and we all ate the Coco Whip
That is high praise! Thanks for sharing Beth.
I came across it at a Whole Foods in NJ over the weekend when I was there to buy a gluten free crust to try out. They were in the same frozen case. I tried it on the pumpkin pie that I made using the So Delicious culinary light coconut milk. I think that the original version is a very good substitute for Cool Whip. I will buy it again.
This stuff is SO GOOD. I got it from Whole Foods last month 🙂 I made an Oreo Freezer pie already and I have my friends munching on it, asking for more.
Where can I find this??? In SF Bay Area?
Hi Diana, it is in Whole Foods. Next year they’ve said they will start shipping to other stores.

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You. I am sooooo very happy. I can’t wait to try your Coco Whip. Where can I get it?
Hi Donna – this is a third party unbiased review, I’m not affiliated with the company. That said, I checked with them, and it is still rolling out to Whole Foods across the U.S. It is in some stores already, but should be in most by month end. They will ship to other stores (outside of Whole Foods) starting next year.
I really can’t wait to try this whipped topping! Soooon, I hope! I was disappointed that they didn’t have any for us at the Food Allergy Bloggers Conference. 😉 Thanks for the review, Alisa!
I know! It is already in some Whole Foods’ regions – so it’s coming!
Oh yay! This looks awesome!
