  2. You can add more cream if needed to produce more of a whipped texture.
  3. You can also put the coconut milk/cream in the refrigerator so that it will become more solid.

Notes
To powder Xylitol: You will need a bullet blender or a small food processor or grinder. Pour the required amount of Xylitol into the blender and blend until the crystals become like a dust.
