Homemade Whipped Cream

A lot of the dessert recipes I’ve posted on Inspired by Charm have called for whipped cream. This past weekend as I was working on a few new shortcake recipes for the blog, it dawned on me that I should also share how I make whipped cream.

I realize that some of you do not need a recipe for whipped cream. However, I suspect there are just as many of you who may not be aware that you can make your own whipped cream or how to go about it

The good news is that it’s SUPER SIMPLE. The bad news is that you’re going to want to put it on EVERYTHING! Ha!

First, let me tell you what you’ll need, and then I’ll walk you through the recipe.

What is Whipped Cream Made of?

You might be surprised to learn that you only need a few ingredients to make whipped cream at home.

  • Heavy Whipping Cream: This is required. Make sure it is COLD. If the heavy whipping cream is warm, it will not whip.
  • Confectioners’ Sugar: I prefer this over granulated sugar. Confectioners’ sugar adds all the sweetness you could want without the risk of tasting sugar granules in your whipped cream.
  • Vanilla Extract: Vanilla is an optional ingredient, but I always use it. I love the flavor it gives my whipped cream. (You can find my favorite vanilla extract HERE.)

How Do You Make Whipped Cream from Scratch?

As I said, this is a SIMPLE recipe. Let me explain ….

Add the heavy whipping cream, sugar, and vanilla to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment.

With your mixer on medium speed, whip the cream until it begins to thicken.

Continue whipping for several minutes until the cream is fluffy but not too firm. I like medium-to-firm peaks. This means that the whipped cream holds its shape when spooned or piped on your dessert. Be careful not to over mix the whipping cream, or it will start to separate. (Then you’ll have butter!)

You can serve this delightful whipped cream right away or cover it tightly and chill it for up to 36 hours. I like to store mine in a plastic piping bag (like this one) fitted with a large close star tip. That way it’s ready to use when I’m in the mood for whipped cream.

And that’s it, my friends. You now know how to make your own whipped cream. As you’ll discover, it is SO good! I promise you’ll never want to buy it at the store again. Homemade is hard to beat!

    Thanks, Michael-so simple and so delicious! My mom taught me a little trick to cool down my bowl in the refrigerator for a while before adding the cold cream and whipping it. Works especially good on a hot day!

    Homemade whipped cream is delicious! So often, simpler is better. Thanks for reminding me of this.

  • Eva at

    Delicious!! Will have to it them out

  • Maya at

    Your recipe is actually called Chantilly Cream. It’s how my Mom taught me to make whipped cream, although I tend to use less sugar. So delicious!

    I make a family favorite 24 hour fruit salad from the 50’s that includes plain whipping cream. My Grandmother and Mother taught me that in addition to really cold whipping cream we put the mixing bowl and beaters in the freezer while we prep the beginning of the recipe. Works every time! Love your recipes.
