15 Flavored Homemade Whipped Cream Recipes
By: Sabrina Huda Sanchez

Completing your drink or dessert with whipped cream makes it feel like a finished masterpiece. However, store-bought options can be disappointing. They come in cans that use a nitrous oxide propellant and often contain unhealthy ingredients such as corn syrup and carrageenan. And, ready-made whipped toppings aren't much better, as they're made with high fructose corn syrup and hydrogenated vegetable oil.

The best way to enjoy a delicious and healthy dollop of whipped cream is by making it yourself. Homemade whipped cream gives you complete control over the flavor and sugar levels, and there are many delicious variations you can make with a simple recipe. Check out these 15 tasty flavor options to add to your whipped cream recipe!

How to Make Homemade Whipped Cream
Making whipped cream is a simple task, but it does require some patience, especially if you're doing it manually. You'll need three basic ingredients: heavy whipping cream, sugar, and any desired flavorings. To get started, you must select your preferred mixing tool: a whiskhand mixer, or stand mixer.

Kitchen Tools
Using a whisk to make whipped cream will be the most time-consuming method, taking approximately 10 minutes of constant hand-stirring. This is the most economical option and can also be a great way to build your forearm strength. If you opt for a hand mixer, the process is quicker, taking around 5-6 minutes, and requires less effort on your part. With a stand mixer, the process is even easier and takes only about 3 minutes, but it comes at a higher cost. Consider investing in a stand mixer if you plan on doing a lot of baking in the future.

Stages of whipped peaks
When making whipped cream, it's essential to understand the different levels of consistency and the terminology used to describe them. Different recipes may call for different consistencies, ranging from soft to stiff, so it's crucial to know the differences.

‧Soft peaks are obtained after a short mixing time, when the cream is light and fluffy, and retains its shape when lifted with a whisk, but only briefly before drooping back into the cream. This consistency is ideal for folding into other ingredients in a recipe.

‧Medium peaks are fluffier compared to soft peaks and possess a denser consistency. Although they maintain their form when using the whisk, the tips tend to bend and collapse.

‧Stiff peaks are crucial for topping beverages and desserts. These peaks will retain their form when using the whisk, and you can confirm their perfect consistency by turning the bowl upside down - if the whipped cream remains in the bowl, it has reached the ideal stiffness.

Whipped Cream Recipe
This is the base recipe for homemade whipped cream which we will build upon with 15 different flavors. For best results, place the bowl and whisks in the refrigerator for 15-20 minutes prior. The cold bowl and tools will help the cream whip faster.

1. In a bowl, pour heavy whipping cream then turn on electric mixer on low (or begin whisking by hand).
