How to Make Whipped Cream (Cool Whip)

Once you’ve eaten whipped cream you’ll never want to eat Cool Whip again;

and it is super easy to make.

All you need is some heavy cream, sugar and a mixer.

Pour in about 1/2 a quart (there are no exact measurements).

Once you make it a few times you will be a good judge about how much to make.

Start your mixer on slow, otherwise it will splatter everywhere!

Whip on HIGH for about 3-4 minutes, be careful not to over whip,

this can happen very quickly so keep an eye on it!

When it starts to thicken add a couple tablespoons of sugar.

You will know it is done when it looks light and fluffy.

Again, do not over mix it, it will turn into slop,

Keeping some heavy cream on hand makes it easy to whip up a little whipped topping for any dessert.

This was just blueberries, whipped cream and a strawberry on top.

Of course a small sprig of mint looks wonderful on any dessert.

I feel like the Pavlov dog—whipped cream=salivating! My mom used to make gingerbread and serve it with fresh whipped cream; cream was courtesy of our milk cow, Peggy. I make a plain chocolate cake and cut it into squares, then split the pieces like a sandwich, then plop the whipped cream on, sandwich it together, then top it with another plop of cream. If I’m feeling fancy-shmancy, a sprinkling of cocoa powder goes over the top and around the plate. It’s possible there are at least 23 calories 🙂 in each plop of cream, but it is sooo delicious! My dad refers to coolwhip topping as “shaving cream” and I must agree with him. Whipped toppings have their place in some recipes, but real cream is superior!

Thanks to your lovely picture of berries with whipped cream, I now feel compelled to make something to put whipped cream on! And thanks for the many neat tips and encouragement you share; I look forward to checking the email every day to see what you’re sharing!


Thanks for this! I made the whipped cream by stirring it in a metal bowl with a whisk. It took about 10 minutes by hand / without a machine. Got in a good workout, now I can eat more whipped cream. 😉
