how to make homemade whipped cream in 30 seconds!
Last week I posted on Instagram my favorite way of making homemade whipped cream with a hand/immersion blender. And I immediately received a bunch of emails and comments from people who had never tried it, and had questions about what a hand blender actually does. So since we happen to be giving away a KitchenAid hand blender this week, thought it might be a fun time to post a quick tutorial!
This method is definitely not rocket science. But it is super easy, quick, and requires much less work doing dishes than if you were using a large stand mixer or food processor! And since hand blenders are so small and portable, this is also a great option if you are taking a dessert to a party and want to make some homemade whipped cream topping there on the spot. (Or, if you get asked to make some homemade whipped cream for a kittens photo shoot on location at work, I learned from experience this also randomly works well for that!) Oh the possibilities. :)
Well however you like to use your homemade whipped cream, here is my quick how-to for how to make it:
A simple way to make homemade whipped cream with a hand blender.
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1 Tbsp. powdered sugar
Stir ingredients together in a medium bowl or container. Use an immersion blender to blend for 15-30 seconds, moving the blender up and down to be sure that all of the cream gets mixed, until soft peaks form. Serve immediately.
