Whipped Cream How To Recipe

I’ve probably made whipped cream 7,902 times or something like that, it’s honestly one of my favorite foods. I’ve been making it as long as I can remember, you know back when you had to stand on a barstool to reach the counter and bowl?

My mom never bought frozen whipped topping and was a firm believer in homemade whipped cream so that’s what was always served and now that’s what I always serve too. It’s worlds better then frozen whipped topping, once you go this route you’ll never look back!

Many of you have likely already been going this route so feel free to just scroll on down for different recipes you can use it in.

It’s super easy to make and hard to mess up if you follow a few simple steps as listed in the recipe. And the ways you can use it are endless. One of my favorite ways is simply pairing it with lightly sweetened fresh fruit (mangos, strawberries and raspberries are what is pictured below. Peaches are a great option too when in season).

Then also shown it’s served with angel food cake and fresh fruit (half the strawberries I like to puree in a food processor for a sauce).

Whipped cream is a super versatile topping that is the perfect finishing touch to countless desserts. I’ve listed a handful of ways to use it but trust me this list could go on and on.
