There are some recipes that just don't taste right without some sour cream. Chili is one example....how am I supposed to go to town on a bowl of chili without some creamy, cold sour cream on top?!? It's not right I tell you! Another is most Mexican foods...the sour cream goes perfectly with the heat from the spices. Well do not fear my fellow paleo people, for I have a close substitute that is super simple to make!
You can play around with the ratio of lemon juice/cider vinegar and sea salt until you get it to a taste you like. This paleo sour cream also makes a really great base for a vegetable dip. Just add a little paleo mayo, dill, garlic powder, dried parsley, sea salt and ground pepper!
This recipe requires that the can of coconut milk be left in the fridge for a few hours, or preferably overnight, so that the cream can separate from the milk. I always keep a couple cans in my fridge so I can grab them whenever I need them.
