I have been saying for awhile that I need to share this easy homemade whipped cream recipe since I’ve used it in a few recipes recently. [And because its delicious.] I just needed a few photos first. I made a cake this past week and made the whipped cream so I snapped a few pictures. [Woohoo!] And I should put a disclaimer on this recipe – first its super, duper easy. And second its super, duper addicting. Once I started making homemade whipped cream I never looked back.
Don’t you just want to swipe your finger across the top of that bowl? It’s ok if you do. After I took the picture, I did. And I may have grabbed a spoon to get a bigger bite. [Or two.] But that’s just a maybe.
Anyways. All you need to make this homemade whipped cream is:
- Heavy Whipping Cream
- Vanilla Extract
Say what?! Yup. That’s all you need. Now go read the back of the store bought stuff and see what it says. Its not pretty. Lots and lots of stuff that tastes good but isn’t good for you. But I digress.
Now for the super, duper easy tutorial on how to make this dreamy stuff. Pour your heavy whipping cream in a chilled bowl and start mixing. Mix it for about 2-3 minutes until it starts to form soft little peaks of deliciousness. Then add your sugar and extract. Continue to mix until the whipped cream starts to stiffen up, about 1 more minute. Taste test it and then scoop it into a bowl or directly onto a cake. It should be good for at least 3 days if sealed properly. Mine never lasts that long, but it could if it needed to.

Hi! Can I use raw sugar for this? I’m trying to eat clean due to health issues. Thanx!
I’ve tried it with raw sugar and it works.. its just not as sweet. It doesn’t seem to blend as well with the cream. Hope that helps!

Adding this to my “I am going to make this” list. Especially with your recipe for iced white mocha!
Yes! You have to give this a try Jennifer.. its so so easy!
I just made the white chocolate mocha! I used the torani white chocolate! and instead of whipped cream, I found a ‘nitro cream’ for coffee in the whipped cream section at Walmart! I also picked up some cold brew starbucks dark roast to try this as a cold drink! It’s delicious can’t wait to try with the cold brew! As a mom of 4, getting drinks from Starbucks or at the local coffee shop can be pricy! The local coffee shop charges like 5,60 for a med. And around $10 for a large! So with this recipe that taste just like the coffee shops or better, it definitely is cheaper to just make the replica at home! Thank you!
So happy you enjoyed it! Copycat coffee house drinks are my jam!

Update: trying it cold is just as good!!! The only reason I’ll be visiting my local coffee house, is to pick up my free drink! (My punch card is full) lol since the day I’ve commented I’ve only used regular coffee creamer 2 times, otherwise I make the ‘white chocolate mochas’ ?
Yay yay yay! That’s so great to hear!!
