Homemade Whipped Cream Recipe

Friday, I shared my go to hot chocolate mix recipe with a peppermint twist.

Let’s be honest, if you’re going to have some peppermint hot chocolate, you’ve got to top it off with a little whipped cream. Today I thought I would share my go to homemade whipped cream recipe – so much more rich and tasty than the canned stuff.

Homemade Whipped Cream Recipe

1 c. heavy whipping cream
2 tps. pure vanilla
2 tblsp. powdered sugar


  • Beat the cream and vanilla in a chilled bowl with a whisk or a mixer until they hold a loose peak.
  • Sift the sugar over the cream and continue to beat the whipped cream until it holds a slightly stronger peak – don’t over beat it or it will look curdy.
  • Refrigerate covered for up to four hours or freeze it for use in your mug a little later.

  1. Did you by chance mean 2 tablespoons of sugar? (Instead of teaspoons.) I’ve never seen a whipped cream recipe with that little of sugar.
