Whipped Cream

As much as I love to cook, there are many, many things I have never made before. One of those things - whipped cream.

We were having friends over for brunch, and I decided to make fresh whipped cream to go with my home made waffles.

OMG - I don't know why I never made fresh whipped cream before! It is so easy and super tasty! There's REALLY nothing to it.

Heavy Whipping Cream

Pour whipping cream in to a mixer. Add some vanilla (about 1 tbsp) and some sugar (about 1 tbsp). Whip until peaks form (about 2 minutes). Be careful no to over whip or else the cream will turn in to butter.

How easy is that? I don't think I'll ever go back to store bought again (except maybe for dairy free, fat free cool whip - which isn't really whipped cream).

The monkeys went nuts for it to - between the three of them begging to eat it by the spoonful, I had to stow the cream up on a high shelf until it was time to eat!!

Heavy cream, whipped hard (not quite butter, but thick) adds palatability to any desert. However I have it on good authority -- no calories. It's remarkable.

I would probably make myself sick on this little treat, just like your monkeys, I would want to eat it by the spoonfuls!!!
