Lightly Sweetened Whipped Cream

Homemade whipped cream recipe

Homemade whipped cream recipe that’s not too sweet

I’ve never been a fan of store bought/pre-made whipped topping or whipped cream – no offense to those that like to use these in preparing desserts, but for me, I’ve never been able to jump onto that band wagon.  I’ve always liked the ability to control how sweet my sweets are, because I don’t like my sweets to be too sweet – whether it’s a cake, pie, frosting or dessert topping. Making homemade whipped cream/whipped topping is super easy, and requires a few simple ingredients, including:
  • heavy cream – you want a cream that has at least 35% fat content
  • a sweetener – many recipes call for the use of confectioners sugar, but you could also use granulated sugar, maple syrup or agave
  • flavoring – the go to extract used to make whipped cream is vanilla extract, but you could also a splash of your favorite rum or liqueur, or another extract of your choice such as coconut extract or peppermint extract, depending on the dessert your using the whipped cream for
