Vanilla

If you are making simple homemade whipped cream, stick with the vanilla flavoring. However, you can use almond, peppermint, mint or your preferred flavor extract for flavoring.

Can I Make This Sugar Free?

FAQ’s + Tips + Notes

Can This Recipe Be Doubled?

Yes, it can be doubled very easily. A cup of whipping cream will produce about 2 cups of whipped cream. Use that as your guide when determining how much you will need.

Is This The Same as Whipped Topping?

No. Whipped topping (AKA “Cool Whip”) contains more sugar, a longer shelf life and different texture than whipped cream. Want to learn more about their differences? See this great article.

Tips for Getting Great Whipped Cream

  • When your whipped cream is done, it should have either medium or stiff peaks. Medium peaks are a bit softer and work well to dollop on pie or hot chocolate. Stiff peaks will hold up better when piping or frosting on cakes, cupcakes, etc. Learn more about peaks.
  • Start with cold whipping cream and a chilled bowl.
  • Don’t whip your cream too long! However, if you do, don’t worry. Make butter instead. 😉

Storage

Keep any leftovers in a covered container in the refrigerator. It is best used within 2-3 days.
