Califia Farms is expanding its dairy-free lineup with a new star: Heavy Whip. The plant-based beverage brand revealed this one-for-one swap that is perfect for whipping, cooking, and baking—a dairy-free kitchen staple.
To celebrate the launch and showcase the versatility of the brand’s entire product portfolio, Califia has released a digital recipe book with celebrity chef, Carla Hall, Comfort Kitchen: A Dairy-Free & Plant-Based Recipe Collection.
“Califia is excited to partner with Carla Hall on this recipe collection, which helps showcase just how yummy and versatile our products can be, including our newest culinary item, Heavy Whip,” said Suzanne Ginestro, Chief Marketing Officer at Califia Farms. “At Califia, we’re passionate about celebrating the irresistible goodness of plants, and we saw an opportunity to create a plant-based swap for dairy-heavy whipping cream without compromising on taste and functionality. Heavy Whip allows any recipe’s ingredients to shine through and makes it easier than ever for consumers to experiment with plant-based options.”
Unflavored and unsweetened, Heavy Whip is the perfect multipurpose ingredient for any culinary dish, allowing consumers to customize their recipes, whether sweet or savory. It can be used exactly as a dairy-heavy whipping cream—from soups and salad dressings to creamy dessert recipes and airy whipped toppings.
In addition to Heavy Whip, Comfort Kitchen also includes the brand’s extensive selection of plant milks, coffees, and creamers used in deliciously inventive ways for recipes that are nourishing, dairy-free versions of popular comfort foods, noted the release. The recipes span breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert, with exclusive plant-based cooking and baking tips from Hall.
“I am thrilled to introduce this new recipe collection with Califia Farms,” said Hall. “I love cooking and baking with their products, and their new, dairy-free Heavy Whip is a game-changer for cooks! It’s an ideal one-to-one swap that makes the creamiest, dairy-free soups and works equally well as a 100 percent plant-based dessert topping and as an ingredient in so many other recipes. I had so much fun creating these delicious, comfort food recipes and can’t wait for everyone to try them!”
Heavy Whip is available in refrigerated format in a 16.9 oz carton with a suggested retail price of $4.89. It is made from a coconut oil base and is gluten-free. As with all Califia products, Heavy Whip is made from simple, plant-based, dairy-free ingredients and is Non-GMO Certified, Kosher, and vegan. Califia Farms Heavy Whip can be found at Whole Foods Market, Sprouts Farmers Market, and other retailers nationwide.
