Quickie: Homemade Whipped Cream

Whipped cream is one of those things that can top most treats. Luckily, it’s super quick and easy to make and it tastes even better when you make it yourself!
I made some iced coffees the other day and of course, we didn’t have any whipped cream. I quickly noticed I had the whopping three ingredients needed to create my own. It’s super simple to remember, the three “1’s”:
• 1 cup heavy whipping cream
• 1 tbs. confectioners’ sugar
• 1 tsp. vanilla extract
whipped
I like to beat the heavy whipping cream first. On medium/high speed, beat the whipping cream until soft peaks start to form.
Add the sugar and vanilla extract, continue to beat on medium/high speed until peaks form, usually takes about a minute or two. Make sure you don’t over beat or you’ll end up with some butter textured whipped cream.
Plop that heaven on your pies, smoothies, parfait’s or cakes and it won’t disappoint.

    I never buy whipped cream… always make my own. It taste soo good and you’ve got the control over how much sugar you want in it… what kind of sugar (have you tried it with powdered turbinado sugar?… yumm)…. sometimes I add a few tsp of beet or spinach juice for coloring… !!!
    it’s so much fun to make your own whipped cream
