My recipe for addictive homemade whipped cream: pour 1 pint of fresh heavy cream in an ICE COLD mixing bowl, add 4 TBS powdered sugar and 2 tsp of vanilla extract. Mix on low and then whip on high until fluffy! Enjoy!! Your guests will love you forever!
Even if you've never cared for the real deal, homemade Cool Whip is something everyone can love. It's silky smooth and rich, but quite a bit lighter than traditional whipped cream. The real kicker is that it's freezer-safe and stable at warmer temperatures as well, making it the perfect make-ahead accompaniment for cookouts and holiday trips where refrigeration isn't always an option.
