Recipe Collection: Real Whipped Cream

admin December 16, 2010

Since it’s the holidays, you’ll likely be confronted with lots of desserts at parties and get-togethers.  One of the most popular toppings for pies, ice cream, and lots more is whipped cream!  But of course, buying “Cool whip” or whipped cream in a can isn’t healthy!  That doesn’t mean you have to completely avoid whipped cream.  You just have to make your own excellent, more delicious whipped cream at home!


  • 2 c. heavy cream, preferably raw
  • 1/4 c. maple syrup (less or more to taste)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract


Add all the ingredients to a blender (Vitamix is awesome!), or in a glass bowl.  Either blend on low, or use a mixer to beat the cream until fluffy.  Store in a glass container in the fridge for up to a week.  Use to top ice cream, pie, or just eat. 🙂

  4. […] Apple slices and whipped cream (or nut butter for […]
