Bookmark this homemade whipped cream recipe: in just 5 minutes you’ve got sweetened whipped cream that tastes infinitely better than the store bought stuff!


  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Place a bowl in the freezer to chill for a few minutes.
  2. Combine the cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract in the chilled bowl.
  3. With a large whisk, whip the cream by moving the whisk back and forth quickly (try to whisk in a line instead of a circular motion). Whip to your desired thickness is reached. You can use a looser cream for more of a “drizzle”, or a stiffer whipped cream for the traditional Cool Whip style texture. Tip: You can place the bowl in the sink to whip the cream so that it is a bit lower than a table, which helps to make the whisking motion easier. *Alternatively, place the ingredients in the bowl of a KitchenAid stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, and mix on medium speed until the desired consistency is reached.
