First, know that sugar is not a required ingredient when whipping cream. It will come together fine without adding anything to the cream.

As to coconut milk, it typically has a fat content around 25% (compared to about 35% for whipping cream.) While it's possible 25% is enough to work, all the recipes I found skim off the water, resulting in an even higher fat content – likely 50%+ given the amount of water in a typical can of coconut milk.

So this is quite possible to do; personally I would try finding (or creating) a recipe that kept some or all of the liquid in, just in the interest of health and possibly making the resulting product a bit less heavy.

(Note this would definitely be something I would want to enjoy in moderation, given the extremely high amounts of saturated fat present in coconut milk.)

  • you can also buy cans of "coconut cream," which have a higher fat content to begin with. They will whip as-is.
