Homemade Whipped Cream adds decadence to any dessert. It is a great replacement for ice cream and it is delightful just eaten out of the mixing bowl with a spoon.
I chose to make whipped cream recently with my Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp, because there weren’t any good sales on ice cream that week and my ice cream machine is broken. The cost of homemade whipped cream can be much less than the cost of ice cream.
How to Make Homemade Whipped Cream
- 1 Cup cold heavy whipping cream
- 1 Tbsp. Confectioners sugar
- 1 tsp. Vanilla
Pour all three ingredients into a mixing bowl. Using a wire attachment or beaters, gradually increase speed of the mixer to high and whip until soft peaks form. It only takes a minute or two.
Could that be any more simple?
