There’s really no reason to settle for store-bought whipped cream when making your own is so easy, and more than worth the minute amount of work you need to put into it. Plus you can create your own version to satisfy your tastes. I like putting natural vanilla extract or honey in mine. I haven’t experimented with any other flavors yet. Sticking to the classics for now. Although I am tempted to whip up something different using spices like curry or nutmeg. Chai also sounds yummy, in anticipation for Fall.
Heavy whipping cream
Flavor additives of your liking
Pour cream into a deep bowl. Add your flavoring. Whip, using your hand held mixer, for a minute or two, until it becomes fluffy. Don’t over-whip. It will turn into butter. Unless that sounds good to you. What’s wrong with butter? Whip away.
You can store whipped cream, covered, for several hours in the refrigerator. Enjoy on fresh fruit, waffles, sweets, or straight-up off your finger.
