What is whipped cream?

Whipped cream is a beautiful mixture of heavy whipping cream, sugar, and vanilla extract. This delightful topping is made by whisking these three ingredients together until stiff peaks form. Whipped cream is light, fluffy, and makes a perfect topping for cakes, pies, ice cream and so much more!

Why make your own whipped cream?

Store bought whipped cream can have corn syrup, artificial flavors, natural flavors, stabilizers, artificial colors, seed oils and more. These ingredients like carrageenan, palm oil, artificial colors, flavors and more are not necessary at all to make whipped cream! This is why making your own organic whipped cream is so much better for you. When you make your own homemade whipped cream, you'll feel good about indulging in this light and fluffy treat because it's made with just 3 simple ingredients.

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Using a stand mixer with whisk attachment or a hand mixer, whisk heavy whipping cream, sugar, and vanilla. Start on slow speed at first to avoid splattering. As cream thickens, gradually increase speed until you are at full speed.

Step 2

The consistency will thicken quickly, forming fluffy, soft peaks. Continue to whisk until stiff peaks form and the whipped cream doesn’t droop or fall off the whisk. Do not over-whip or you’ll make butter!

Step 3

Store in the fridge for up to 7 days, though it's best to use within the first couple days!

Baker's Tips

  • You can use a stand mixer or hand mixer for this, whichever you prefer!
  • Make sure to store homemade whipped cream whipped cream in an airtight container in the fridge.
  • If you prefer soft peaks, you can stop whipping the whipped cream when it is thick but still falls off the whisk. I personally don’t like to eat whipped cream at soft peak stage, but to each their own.

FAQ's

Whats the difference between stiff peaks and soft peaks?

Traditional whipped cream is whipped until stiff peaks form. Whipped cream that is whipped until stiff peaks form will hold its shape. But some prefer a softer more runny whipped cream that doesn’t hold its shape as much, and that is soft peaks. If you want soft peaks you just stop whipping sooner.

What else can I use instead of cane sugar?

You can replace the cane sugar with coconut sugar, powdered sugar, honey, or even maple syrup if you prefer. You just need a little sweetener, so feel free to use your preferred sugar.

How do you store homemade whipped cream?

Homemade whipped cream is best stored in an airtight container in the fridge.

How long will homemade whipped cream last?

It will start to deflate as soon as it’s made because there are no stabilizers, so it’s best to enjoy it sooner than later. It will last for about 5 days in an airtight container in the fridge.
