Hey friends! I’m back with a quick little How-To Tuesday post to get you all ready for holiday pie-baking, hot-cocoa-topping, and cake-decorating this week. We’re talking about how to make homemade whipped cream!
If you’ve never tried making homemade whipped cream before, it’s quick and easy to whip up in just a few minutes. And the good news is that it only calls for two main ingredients — cream and sweetener. I often like to add in a drizzle of vanilla extract and a pinch of salt too. And if you feel like kickin’ things up a notch, you can add in some extra flavors like cocoa or cinnamon or bourbon or whatever else sounds yummy.
All you need is a bowl and some sort of electric mixer (hand mixer, stand mixer, hand blender) to whip the cream. Then a fresh bowl of homemade whipped cream will be ready to enjoy in just a few minutes!
Homemade whipped cream is quick and easy to make with just 2 ingredients!
1 cup heavy cream, chilled
1 tablespoon sweetener (powdered sugar or maple syrup)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
Combine. Combine all of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Using a hand mixer or a stand mixer with the whisk attachment, mix on medium-high speed until medium peaks form. (Or if you prefer stiff peaks, mix just a bit longer.)
Serve. Serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours. Enjoy!
