Step 1: Refrigerate can of coconut milk overnight.
Step 2: Open the refrigerated can (don't shake it or turn it upside down). Scoop out the thick cream at the top of the can and place is a large bowl to be whipped.
Step 3: The bottom half of the can will be coconut water that has separated from the cream. Pour this into a glass container, refrigerate and use for your smoothies, baked goods or in a Thai dish.
Step 4: Whip the coconut cream with sweetener and optional vanilla and cinnamon. Just a minute or two will do.
