Learn how to make your own homemade whipped cream with just 3 delicious ingredients!
Have you ever had homemade whipped cream? It’s by far way superior to what you’ll find pre-made in the supermarket. The best part is? It’s super easy! Made with just 3 ingredients: cold heavy cream, powered sugar and vanilla.
To make the best homemade whipped cream, you will need to use a stand mixer or handheld mixer.
In a bowl, add your heavy whipping cream, sugar and vanilla extract. Then mix it on medium high speed using your whisk attachment. I like to start out on a lower level and work my way up to the higher setting to avoid splashing the ingredients.
The whole process of making homemade whipped cream is really just a whole 5 minutes or so. As the cream comes to together you will notice nice soft peaks forming. I love making whipped cream, it’s just so satisfying to me to watch it form, it’s almost like making clouds!
How do I know when my whipped cream is done?
You will notice that the whipped cream will be able to hold its shape when you lift the beaters out of it.
This recipe makes about 2 cups of whipped cream. Just know that unlike pre-made store bought whipped cream, homemade doesn’t last too long. You will want to make this before serving and it will last about 2 hours or so.
