Fresh Whipped Cream

I love fresh berries. I love them so much they are one of the main parts of my header! One way I love to serve fresh berries at dinner parties is with some basic fresh whipped cream. Guests love it!

Luckily for all of us, fresh whipped cream is ridiculously easy to make. All you need is a chilled bowl, a hand mixer, heavy cream and sugar! At our most recent dinner I topped homemade chocolate mousse with a dollop of fresh whipped cream and a few chocolate shavings, and served fresh berries on the side. It was a hit!

Fresh Whipped Cream
makes app. 1.5 cups of whipped cream!


2 tbs white sugar
1 cup heavy cream (can use whipping cream also if you like)

1. Put the sugar in the bottom of a chilled bowl. Pour the cream over it. Using your hand mixer, beat until the mixture has formed stiff peaks, about 2-3 minutes. Enjoy!

Didn’t I tell you it was easy?

  1. Yum! I have some chocolate pudding this would be perfect for. How much does 1 cup yield?

  2. I actually don’t even use sugar when I make whipped cream! It takes a little longer to whip up but I figure when it’s going on something already sugary there isn’t a need for extra.

  3. I love visiting your blog! Your so creative how your present your ideas! I am so happy for you! All th best!

  4. i love fresh whipped cream, it tastes delicious! so much better than canned or packaged!
    nice job! i love the pic..

  5. I always use confectioner’s (powdered) sugar when I do whipped cream. I find that it comes out smoother and not gritty.

  6. YUMMM girl! love me some whip cream!

  7. LOVE whipped cream — I made my own for the first time during an ill-fated three months on the Atkins diet back in college, and couldn’t believe how easy it was. That was probably the only good thing that came out of that. How ridiculous is it that I was avoiding, say, apples and making my own whipped cream (with fake sugar, natch) to go on my sugar-free jello? SO sad. Your pic looks fabulous!

  8. Did you take that picture? I’m drooling over it!

  9. What I wouldn’t give for some berries and whipped cream right now! YUM!
