Easy-to-make Whipped Cream Recipe

Let me tell you what the easiest, tastiest, most kid-pleasing dessert is: this whipped cream. Just 3 ingredients, about 1.4 minutes total, and you have happy people. Not only do we eat it by itself (because it’s just that good), but we also use it to top our waffles, hot chocolate, and pumpkin cheesecake!

Just look at how perfectly is swirls on each slice. Creamy, cool, sweet, vanilla flavor and exactly what that pumpkin pie cheesecake needs as a sweetener. You’ll want to keep a quart of cream in the fridge just for the express purpose of making this whipped cream whenever the ketogenic lifestyle craving strikes. With 0 carbs, don’t feel bad about indulging on this ketogenic diet treat every once in a while.

Author Kendra Benson

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Heavy Cream
  • 1 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract Vanilla
  • 1 Tbsp Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener regular, not powdered

Instructions

  • Combine all ingredients and use a stand mixer with whisk attachment, a hand mixer, or an immersion blender whisk to whip/beat the cream until thickened and stiff peaks form and it has doubled in volume.
  • Use immediately. Store any leftovers in the fridge for up to 3 days. May need to be re-whipped (not always, but this is not a stabilized whipped cream so it may deflate a little).
This low-carb/high-fat whipped cream is the perfect topping for any dessert, or even to eat right off the spoon.

    Heavy Whipping Cream has carbs. 1 cup of heavy whipping cream is about 7 grams of carbs. It’s very minimal but shouldn’t be ignored. Great recipe though!

      I’m glad you liked it! Thanks! The carb count definitely wasn’t ignored, the nutrition facts were calculated using 6.6 grams of carbs per cup. The serving size shown in the nutrition facts is 1 Tbsp, which is less than 1/4 g of carbs per serving, which is rounded down to 0 because it is so insignificant and standard in the industry and labeling practices.

      Indeed that is the standard practice in the industry, and it is quite clear that it is disingenuous and bad for the consumer. Serving sizes and recipes are very often juggled in order to meet rounding criteria so that “0” can be listed in order to sell what otherwise might not be desirable enough to purchase. Many consumers are aware of this today and purchase with that understanding in mind, creating an unhelpfully large knowledge burden. What you’re doing though is not “within the industry”. You are sharing a recipe on a blog, and it is up to you to determine what is and is not a good practice. I can very reasonably argue that the standard has been set by the community to a higher level, and that you are individually responsible for providing a disclaimer about your rounding practices if you choose to adopt this obviously misleading method. And your self-admitted knowledge of all of this makes it doubly egregious.

      The moment I saw heavy whipping cream I was aware there would be carbs — much the same way Rhiannon did. If my ethical argument has not swayed you, then perhaps appealing to the lowest common denominator will: your traffic. People bristle about being lied to, and you absolutely will lose readers over this. I genuinely hope to see better accounting of nutrition information from you in the future, or I and many other informed readers will add your site to the growing list of blocked web addresses — a list that gets shared by various communities to which we subscribe.

    • Chris, I appreciate your input. I use a nutrition calculation service that does the rounding. I’m not trying to pull the wool over anyone’s eyes or outright lie to anyone, and I calculate nutrition facts to the best of my ability. Some cream has fewer carbs than others as well, depending on additives, so the nutrition facts will vary for everyone depending on brand (I use a farm-fresh cream with no gums, preservatives, or additives so the nutrition content is different than store-bought). I eat this way as well, so I try to stay as accurate as possible for my own benefit too. I’m sorry that you feel the way you do.

      Chris, most people can read labels and determine the carb count. I do not feel the post was intended to be an egregious act or pull the wool over on anyone. Most of us understand that the nutritional values may be off since the people posting are not nutritionist. It appears you have way too much time on your hands!

    • Some heavy whipping cream does have carbs but not all do. The brand Market Pantry is a 0 carb heavy whipping cream.

    We absolutely love this. We found a keto-friendly lava cake recipe and used this in place of low carb ice cream.

    Kendra, good, simple and great recipe. Thanks. Oh, and remember the Desiderata – …”avoid loud and obnoxious people for they are vexations to the spirit …. “. I think Chris fits that category. Have fun!

  6. This is all good and I would love to eat whipped cream but it is still a “dairy” product. How does it fit in our everyday Keto lifestyle ?
