Homemade Whipped Cream
Is there anything other than homemade?! It baffles me that people eat anything other than this sweet concoction because it is SO EASY!! Please stop what you're doing right now, make yourself a batch of Homemade Whipped Cream, blow yourself away and end your relationship with Cool-Whip for good. 🙂
Mom always made this for most of our dessert growing up. We have this amazing little whipped cream machine that is just the berries. It makes an easy recipe even easier. Pour cream into a bowl, whisk in powdered sugar, pour in dispenser, place charger, shake and enjoy. This will also keep for up to 2 weeks in the fridge. What is the most fun about this machine is tipping your head backward and giving a big mouthful squirt, there is nothing better. Pretty sure I won Justin’s heart over when he discovered this. It is one of his favorite things and I always make an extra big batch so he can “snack” on it for a couple of days.
Now you don't have to have this dispenser to make whipped cream. All you need is a metal bowl and metal whisk. A stand mixer will work or even handheld. Pop the bowl and whisk into the freezer for an hour or so. That is the secret key. If the bowl and whisk aren't extremely cold then the cream will never really fully set. Be sure to check out the video to watch a step by step of how simple it is. Whip on high, add sugar, whip on high until medium to stiff peaks form. Be careful to not over beat, you will end up with sweetened butter….which isn't the worst cooking mistake in the world, but just keep in eye on it for the perfect consistency. It only takes 1-3 minutes.
Place in a bowl, wrap with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator until ready to serve. It will keep 2-3 days after made. The beauty in this is that this recipe is super flexible. I actually never measure this recipe. I do it by taste. Add a couple spoonfuls of sugar at a time until it is the desired sweetness that I like. You really can't mess this up!
Enjoy a healthy dollop on Strawberry Shortcake, Key Lime Pie, in coffee or just by the spoonfuls. I promise you-you will never turn back from this one you realize how easy and delicious it is!
