Seriously!! Do you know how easy, quick and inexpensive it is to make whipped cream yourself? Well you are going to find out!
I always have a pint of heavy whipping cream in my refrigerator. I use it for cooking and for my coffee in a pinch. I pint costs around $2-$3 and is equivalent to about 2 cups, but when it's whipped you will get about double that amount or more.
You Will Need:
1 cup heavy whipping cream
3 T sugar
1 t vanilla extract
2 bowls that will nest inside of each other, I would recommend that the smaller one be glass
Whisk or hand mixer
Place ice in larger bowl and place smaller bowl inside, making sure that the ice is surrounding the smaller bowl but not falling into it. If you have one of those nifty, silicone trivets it would be helpful to set your bowls on it. You could also use a metal bowl that has been chilled in the freezer for 15 minutes or so.
|The cream forms meringue-like peaks and sticks to the utensil.|
