Homemade Whip Cream

One thing my family can’t live without is whip cream.  During the winter we go through quite a bit, but I can’t tell you how much we go through during the summer.

Let’s not forget that fresh berries are a hot commodity around our house!  I try my best to always have a batch of homemade whip cream on hand because it just can’t be beat. (Fresh berries + homemade whip cream= heaven).

It only takes a couple of minutes to create a batch of homemade whip cream and it keeps in the fridge for several days.  Also, by having a batch of homemade whip cream in the house it keeps my husband from grabbing a couple “squirts” when it’s sitting out on the counter.  He can’t be the only husband that does that right?

Grab your mixer (this can be done by hand if needed) and let’s get to whipping up this yummy treat for your family.

    I love homemade whipped cream. Never used powdered sugar in mine though. I will have to try it this way. I have been known to add a little amaretto or baileys to mine, for adults only. Thanks.

      To dollop on top or to ice them with? To dollop of course! If you do want to ice with it you would need to whip it a bit firmer and make sure the cake stays cold and that you’re going to eat it very soon.
