So I just recently figured out how easy it is to make homemade whipped cream. I can't believe I have never tried it before. I think it might be because I have never really liked store bought whipped cream on my ice cream but homemade has always been a completely different story.
These homemade whipped creams were actually inspired by my Pumpkin Spice Ganache that I made using Coffeemate Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer. It worked so well that I decided to start experimenting with coffee creamer flavors in other things. And then Pumpkin Spice Whipped Cream was born. I used it for a Pumpkin Spice Poke Cake that never made it on the blog because I was
All you need to make your very own flavored whipped creams are three things: heavy whipping cream, sugar, and a flavored coffee creamer of choice. Whip it up in your stand mixer and boom! Wow your friends and family with your culinary amazingness. (Thanks spell check, I know that's not a real word)
These Peppermint Mocha and Spiced Eggnog Whipped Creams were used to top some insanely good Edy's ice cream sundaes and then used again in the Hot Chocolate Bar we had at our Christmas party Saturday night. I can see them sandwiched in between cookies, on top of cupcakes and maybe even topping of some special Christmas morning breakfast treats.
So whip (ha?) these two up soon and blow your family and friend's minds.
Homemade Flavored Whipped Cream
- 8 oz heavy whipping cream
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 4 tablespoons liquid flavored coffee creamer of choice
1.) In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, combine the cream and coffee creamer.
2.) Whisk for a minute on high and then sprinkle in the sugar.
3.) Continue to whisk until soft peaks have formed.
4.) Store in an airtight container and keep refrigerated.
5.) For my Eggnog version, I topped it with freshly grated nutmeg for some added color and flavor.
This post was in no way sponsored by Nestle or Coffeemate (or Edy's for that matter). I just happen to like their flavors of coffee creamer best : )
