Just one simple ingredient is all you really need to make Homemade Whipped Cream. I’d highly recommend a KitchenAid Stand Mixer or a hand held mixer for this one!
If you are wondering what the difference is between Whipping Cream and Heavy Whipping Cream, read this!
Ingredients for Homemade Whipped Cream

- Powdered Sugar (optional)
- Vanilla Extract (optional)
How long does it take to whip cream by hand?
Pour the cream in the bowl. Begin whipping. Watch for soft peaks after about 5-7 minutes.
How Do I Make Whipped Cream?
If using a KitchenAid Stand Mixer
Pour the heavy whipping cream into the mixer. With the whisk attachment I turn the mixer on 5-6 and let it go for a few minutes. I check in on the situation ever now and then to see things coming together. Once the sides of the whipped cream become loose and start to pull away from the bowl and soft peaks form, that’s when you know that it’s done.
If using a hand held mixer
Make sure you have a large enough bowl so that you don’t get splatter everywhere! Pour in your heavy cream and set your hand held mixer to medium high. Whisk for 3-4 minutes. You’ll notice that the glossiness of the heavy cream will become like a satin almost finish as it turns into whipped cream. Once you see stiff peaks begin to form, you have successfully made homemade whipped cream at home!
Impress your friends and family at your next party with your own homemade whipped cream!
