Everybody should probably know how to make Homemade Whipped Cream. That’s why I’m sharing my recipe for delicious and easy whipped cream. It's sure to be a sweet and creamy addition to many of your favorite desserts.


  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream - chilled
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup confectioners’ sugar


  • Add the heavy whipping cream, sugar, and vanilla to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment.
  • With the mixer on medium speed, whip the cream until it begins to thicken.
  • Continue whipping for several minutes until the cream is fluffy (medium peaks) but not too firm.
  • Use immediately or cover tightly and chill for up to 36 hours.


If you like your whipped cream sweeter, use 2-3 additional tablespoons of confectioners’ sugar.
