Whipped cream


20170314_123143As long as you have an electric mixer (or super strong arms), you should never buy whipped cream from a jar or package again. It is so simple to make and you cut down on a ton of fats, sugar and oil if you do it yourself.

My family’s recipe for whipped cream is just three ingredients!


1 pint (2 cups) whipping or heavy cream

1/4 cup sugar (can add more or less to suit your tastes)

1 tablespoon vanilla


  1. Stick a large metal bowl and your whisk attachment in the freezer for at least 15 minutes to chill.
  2. Pour about 1/2 cup of cream in the bowl, whisk it to get it started. Start slow and increase the speed to avoid splatter.
  3. Add in sugar and vanilla. Whisk some more.
  4. Pour in the rest of the cream.
  5. Whisk until fluffy.

The only downside to homemade cream is that if it sits for a while, it will reliquify. If that happens, just break out the whisk and breathe some new life into it. But it’s so good, I doubt it will even last that long.
