It’s almost that time of year where strawberries will be back in season! I’m already finding beautiful strawberries for an inexpensive price at Trader Joe’s!
I’ll typically eat strawberries by itself, but yesterday I wanted to spice it up a bit and add some whipped cream. When a friend told me how easy it is to make whipped cream from scratch I figured I’d give it a shot rather than buy it at the store.
This recipe for whipped cream is so easy — even someone who may consider themselves a horrible cook can pull this one off!
So here’s the scoop:
1. Put 1 cup heavy cream, 3 tablespoons sugar, and 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract into an electric mixer.
2. Whip ingredients together on medium speed until you can form soft peaks (meaning the peaks are able to bend over at the top when you remove the whisk from the electric mixer).
3. Scoop into a bowl, and serve with strawberries (or any other dessert you’d like to pair it with).
It’s seriously that easy! It’s Whipped Cream 1-2-3! My favorite part (besides that it’s so easy to make) is that the flavor is a 100 times better than the fake stuff at the store! The flavors are real, the texture is soft, fluffy, and of course creamy at the same time!
