Homemade Whipped Cream Recipe Tips and Tricks

  • Keep the cream very cold.
  • In addition to cold cream, you can freeze the bowl and whisk for 5 – 10 minutes before starting the recipe. For a big batch I will do this. For smaller batch, I don’t because I’m lazy and it still turns out delicious.
  • Beat it good, you can’t hurt it. But also watch it good because over-beaten whipped cream is no good.

      Heavy cream is the same as heavy whipping cream.

    I agree, making your own whipped cream is so much easier and tastier! (healthier too, less additives). I’m salivating now… lol Sometimes I use maple syrup instead of sugar. It’s delicious too.
