What’s in this whipped cream?
Let me just tell you!! Just a couple drops and homemade whipped cream shoots to the next culinary level!! So delicious, so quick, and so so so worth it!
Are you in the middle of berry season like we are here in Colorado? If so, you know what I mean when I say- I just cannot pass up those amazing-looking berries!! Although they are delicious anytime (my favorite time is as my first meal of the day!) but, as a treat, we love to have them for dessert, with home made whipped cream.
But don’t just stop at berries, because this whipped cream can be edited or served as is, on ice cream, cakes, brownies, or just straight from the spoon! Add a couple drops of peppermint essential oil to make your chocolate desserts have that extra yum! factor. Or, add a couple drops of tangerine to dollap on top of some vanilla ice cream for the perfect creamsicle treat.
Amped Up Whipped Cream
- 1-1/2 cup heavy cream
- 2 tablespoons sugar (or coconut sugar)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 3-5 drops lemon essential oil peppermint, wild orange or tangerine essential oils would be great options too!
- Pour heavy cream into mixer, and use whip attachment on slow for 2 minutes. Add sugar and vanilla and turn speed up for another 3-5 minutes. As the cream begins to form peaks, add essential oils and whip for another couple of minutes. Cover and chill or serve right away!
