I do not like anything like sour cream or yogurt or anything like that. I was wondering if I did whip cream would it be the same texture? Or maybe some kind of ice cream?

you could make "nut cheeses." i did an amazing spreadable sunflower seed cheese once.

Get a can of thick coconut milk, run it through a cheesecloth maybe to thicken it.

Some coconut milks are "lite" and have a lot more water, these aren't what you want - but you could try to thicken them by the cheesecloth method.

Ideally you want one that when you open the can you see something thick like sour cream. There's a supermarket near me that has one of these, it's brand is "La Cena", I can't find it on amazon, but here's a link to its site:


Obviously, any thick coconut milk will do, the problem is trying a bunch of them until you find one that's the right thickness.

Avoid "Coconut Creme" meant to be used in drinks, it comes with tons of added sugar and other crap.
