So in case you haven’t noticed, it’s strawberry season.  Strawberries have been everywhere: on sale at the supermarkets, all over the farmer’s markets, etc.  As a result, I’ve been eating a lot of strawberries.  Normally, I like to eat them by themselves.  But a while back, my mom started making her own fresh whipped cream, and they tasted so good with the strawberries! I’ve had canned whipped cream with strawberries and wasn’t a big fan of it, but fresh whipped cream is delicious!

So I finally tried to make some on my own this weekend.  With a few friends visiting, and some fresh whipped cream, we easily gobbled up four pounds of strawberries.

Enjoy!

After you've tried homemade whipped cream you won't want store-bought again! It only takes about ten minutes to make and is delicious served with fresh fruit for an easy dessert.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup cold heavy cream
  • 2 tsp  granulated sugar see note

Instructions

  • Pour the cream into a steel mixing bowl. Using a hand mixer, whip the cream on high speed for approximately one to two minutes.
  • Rest the whipped cream for 30 seconds before adding the sugar. Whip the cream with the sugar on high speed until the whipped cream is thickened.

Notes

Depending on your taste you may want to add more sugar. I recommend following the recipe as written and, once you've whipped the sugar with the cream, give it a taste. Add more sugar, a little at a time, if you want it sweeter.
