Fast and Easy Homemade Whipped Cream
This homemade whipped cream recipe is so easy AND delicious that you will never want to buy the stuff from the store again!
Servings: 4 Cups
- 2 Cups Heavy whipping cream
- 1/4-1/2 Cup Confectioners (Powdered) sugar
- 1 Teaspoon Vanilla (optional)
- 1 Lemon (optional)
Pour heavy cream into a chilled metal mixing bowl.
Add vanilla (optional) and a couple of squeezes of juice from a lemon (optional).
Begin mixing on slow until bubbles and a few peaks start to form. Then, turn mixer speed to medium.
While mixing on medium, add in confectioner's sugar a little at a time until stiff peaks begin to form—about 6-8 minutes. (You may not use all of the sugar OR feel free to use a little more, if needed.) DO NOT OVER MIX! If you can take the beaters out of the mixer and the whipped cream stays on the beater in a stiff peak, it's ready!
To add a little zing, zest some lemon onto the top of the whipped cream before serving. (It's especially good that way with fresh strawberries!)
