And I think we’d all agree that the frozen stuff isn’t nearly as good as homemade whipped cream. Something I feel like most people don’t know is how easy it is to make it and in just a few short minutes!
Learn how incredibly easy and even more tasty it is to make your own whipped cream!
How do you make homemade whipped cream?
I am a huge proponent for homemade dessert toppings because they are WAY tastier than anything you can buy in the store and they take such little time to prepare. Homemade whipped cream is no exception! You’ll need only THREE ingredients and they are probably already in your kitchen. Go pull out some heavy whipping cream, confectioners’ sugar and vanilla extract. Before you do that, place a metal bowl along with your metal beaters in the freezer for about 20 minutes. Immediately after removing the bowl/beaters from the freezer, place all of the ingredients into the bowl and start mixing! Go high speed! One to two minutes later you should have the most perfectly creamy whipped cream at your fingertips, ready to be spooned onto a nearby dessert. Seriously, it just doesn’t get any easier than that.
What desserts taste good with whipped cream?
Anything. I’m serious, anything. But if you are looking for specific recommendations, here are a few desserts that taste extra delicious when topped with a large dollop of whipped cream:
Frozen Peppermint Milkshake Pie
No-Bake Strawberry Pie
Berry Slab Pie
Cherry Almond Cheesecake
Go homemade with your whipped cream at your next holiday gathering and I promise people will notice! Enjoy!
