Homemade Whipped Cream

Whipped Cream2Store bought whipped cream is one of those items that I can no longer justify for a couple of reasons.  The main reason is cost.  Whipping cream is less than half the cost of a tub of Cool Whip.  Another reason is because of the taste.  Homemade whipped cream tastes much more fresh.  Believe it or not, you can really tell a difference.

I do not remember the first time I made my own whipped cream because it was a long time ago, but I do remember being very surprised on how quickly it came together.  And when I came to the conclusion that it was cheaper and tasted better, it was a no-brainer to me that I should no longer resort to store-bought.  It just didn’t make sense anymore.

It seems appropriate to share this recipe now that the weather is finally starting to warm up and you should be enjoying some fresh fruits very soon.  Try making this whipped cream to dip your fruits.  Trust me, you won’t turn back to the other stuff.

  1. I absoulutely agree! One of the biggest disappointments at a restaurant is being served some type of non-dairy whipped product instead of real whipped cream. I can deal with the stuff out of the can (which is made from real dairy), but nothing beats fresh whipped cream. I prefer it over ice cream with my desserts.

  2. Nicole Fraaza says:

    How long can you store homemade whip cream in the fridge?

    • It’s best to serve the same day, but should last in the fridge for 1-2 days. I haven’t done it myself, but I believe you can also freeze it.

  3. Aaron just whipped some of this up the other night…..AFTER he saw he eat a bowl full of strawberries!
