Homemade Whipped Cream Takes Your Desserts Over the Top

Whipped cream is a necessary topping to many a dessert. Yet, homemade? Well, homemade whipped cream will take any dessert over the top!

Unless it’s Thanksgiving and I’m making Pretzel Berry, I rarely buy Cool Whip. I buy whipped cream in a can even more infrequently. And even then, I don’t fully enjoy it because I know neither is all that good for you.

Since I’m a coffee freak fan, I usually keep real whipping cream — instead of half and half — on hand.

1 – because it tastes great in coffee.
2 – because it’s dual purpose; it works so well in other recipes.

And one recipe that I make often is whipped cream. Yep, whipped cream. It’s a recipe, really.

We enjoy homemade whipped cream on waffles with fresh fruit. We top chocolate cheesecake, coffee drinks, and  fresh berries with homemade whipped cream. Since making homemade whipped cream doesn’t heat up the kitchen, it’s perfect for summer desserts, like Icebox Cakes. And it takes the Best Pumpkin Pie to new heights.

Homemade whipped cream is very simple to prepare. Since I use it for a topping for rich desserts, my version is not very sweet. I love the way lightly sweetened cream balances with sweeter desserts, but you can add more sweetener if you prefer.
