Vanilla Whipped Cream

Sometimes the simplest things are the most delicious. I don't have too much of a sweet tooth, but when I get a sugar craving, one of my favourite things to indulge in is a little whipped cream on my latte or on fresh berries. I don't like the stuff you get from a can - the taste and texture aren't as rich as the real thing. I like my whipped cream with a touch of vanilla. Simple and so good.

  • 1/2 cup of cold heavy cream (35%)
  • 1 teaspoon of white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon of real vanilla extract

Whisk the cream, sugar and vanilla extract in a bowl until stiff peaks form. If you are using a hand blender with a whisk attachment, use a bigger bowl so it doesn't splash everywhere and put it on the lowest setting - it can make a bit of a mess otherwise (I speak from experience). This makes about one cup of whipped cream.


I shared this on Show Me What Ya Got on Not Just a Housewife and on the Weekend Wrap Up Party on Tatertots and Jello.


  1. I'm totally with you on this matter... whipped cream is one of my FAVORITE desserts, especially when it has vanilla =)

  2. I know! I could probably just eat it on its own...but I've held myself back from doing it so far. My willpower may not hold out long, though.


Thanks for stopping by. I love hearing from you!
