How to Make Real Whipped Cream
Don't use icky whipped cream from the store! Whipped cream is actually a nutritious addition to any treat when made from scratch. It's so easy to make, you'll wonder why you hadn't done so all along!
In a mixing bowl, whip cream until it starts to thicken. Using a cold bowl and cold beaters helps it to thicken more quickly (just throw them in the freezer for a few minutes). Add the rest of the ingredients and whip more until it's the consistency you want. Taste test to see if it needs more sugar. (See how little you can get by with and still have it taste good to your family – it will depend on what you’re putting it on.)
This only takes a few minutes. Do not over-whip or it will turn into butter. Trust me. Get it just to where it is nice and whipped, and turn the mixer off!
