Fresh Whipped Cream

Posted by on Oct 24, 2012 | Comments Off on Fresh Whipped Cream

1 cup high quality cream
1 – 2 TBSP sweetener of choice (to taste), or 6 – 12 drops liquid stevia
1 tsp vanilla extract

Use an electric mixer to blend the cream. Once it thickens, add sweetener, vanilla, and blend just a bit more to combine.

SIDE NOTES:

~  There’s nothing like homemade whipped cream.  It’s delicious with fresh fruit of any kind.  I’m lucky enough to have a farm near by where I can pick up fresh, raw cream to keep on hand.  If this is an option for you, I highly recommend it!

~  Of course, it’s easier to buy whipped cream at the store, but do you really want to eat someone’s chemistry experiment?
