Homemade whipped cream can be made in 5 minutes with this easy recipe. Only 4 ingredients to a creamy delicious topping for all your favorite desserts.
Homemade whipped cream is so easy to make; there's no reason to go running to the store when you can make it in about 5 minutes.
This particular recipe makes a super creamy and slightly sweet whipped cream that's perfect for topping your favorite desserts, like this no bake blueberry dessert made with Dream Whip whipped dessert topping. It's also perfect for making a classic ambrosia salad recipe.
The creamy flavorful texture is partially due to a secret ingredient. In fact, it's one of my favorite ingredients… Keep reading to see what it is.
My boys and I all love a dollop of whipped cream in our hot chocolate, on pumpkin pie and sweet potato pie, white chocolate raspberry cheesecake, and more. It adds a creaminess we wouldn't otherwise get without it.
It also makes the best whipped cream ghosts for my ghost Halloween brownies. And it makes a mean butterbeer recipe.
And I love making this pineapple fluff frosting with whipped cream.
Here's how to make your own batch of homemade whipped cream.
Ready to hear all about that secret ingredient? It's cream cheese. I've professed my love for cream cheese before, but you guys… It just adds an oomph to whipped cream. It's so good!
So, here's what you do. Mix the cream cheese, heavy whipping cream, vanilla extract, and powdered sugar together. Whip with a mixer until it begins to thicken into a whipped cream texture.
You can make it as thin or as thick as you prefer.
For this recipe, I made it a bit thicker, but do know that it will thicken up really fast before you realize. So, if you're wanting it to have a more silky appearance, just stop the whipping process sooner.

I made the cheesecake for the first time and the Oreo cookie crust came out rock hard and the raspberry sauce was too tart. Suggestions???
Tym, you can add a bit of sugar to the sauce if you prefer. I prefer a more tart sauce because the cheesecake is very sweet. As for the crust, I’m not sure what else to suggest… Mine’s turned out great every time I’ve made this. You could try leaving the frosting in the cookies instead of scraping it off; that would likely add softness, but it will also add sweetness.
This home made whip cream looks fantastically delicious. Thanks for sharing it with us.
