With all the harmful additives in our food these days I try to make fresh and natural things as much as possible. I hope you will give this whipped cream a try. I am pretty certain that if you do, you will never buy it in the store again. This lasts longer , has no harmful chemicals and tastes great.
YOU WILL NEED:
One pint of heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/8 to 1/4 cup sugar depending on how sweet you like it.
Cocoa powder (optional) use only if you desire chocolate whipped cream
Electric hand mixer or whisk
Taste intermittently while you are whipping to see if it needs more sugar as once it is thick it will start separating if you whip more. If you do not have an electric hand mixer you can use a whisk but it will take longer and give you a workout.
VARIATIONS: If wish to have chocolate whipped cream, add a teaspoon at a time of cocoa powder till you reach the desired color you wish to have.
