Learn how to make whipped cream. Use this amazing and quick recipe to make your own batch of whipped cream from scratch! The ingredients are simple and easy to find. 



  • 1 ½ cups heavy cream, cold
  • ½ cup powdered sugar or confectioner’s sugar
  • 1 t. vanilla extract


  1. Place your metal bowl into freezer for 10 minutes to chill.
  2. After the bowl has chilled, remove from freezer.
  3. Add heavy cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract into chilled bowl.
  4. Using an electric mixer, beat the ingredients well. Begin on low speed, gradually increasing the speed as the cream thickens.
  5. Continue whipping cream until you reach desired consistency. For this recipe, we continued beating until the “stiff peak” stage, but if you want your whipped cream to be a bit more liquid, you can stop when it has reached a thick and billowy consistency (similar to Cool Whip).
  6. Use immediately, or store in the fridge in an airtight container.
