How to Make Homemade Whipped Cream

  • Author: Allie Hoepker, RDN


Light, airy, fluffy—this recipe makes the best whipped cream from scratch.


  • 1 cup cold heavy cream or heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar or granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract


  1. Combine the cream, sugar, and vanilla in the chilled bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment.
  2. Whisk the mixture on low until bubbly, 1 minute.
  3. Increase speed to medium-high and whip until stiff peaks form, 30–45 seconds.


A chilled metal bowl + chilled whisk works best for whipping.
