Homemade strawberry whipped cream using only 3 ingredients!

Over a year ago we posted a recipe for homemade chocolate whipped cream, and it’s now one of the top 10 recipes people come to our site for!

Before I learned how to make chocolate whipped cream, I was really partial to cool whip.

I know.. I’m a dessert blogger. I should probably like homemade whipped cream more than cool whip. But cool whip is easy.

And it’s definitely something I’ll still use, but I think my heart is changing to love homemade whipped cream more

So I set out to make flavored whipped cream, thinking there has got to be a way I can do this, and there is!!

Behind regular whipped cream and chocolate whipped cream, I figure a lot of people like strawberry flavored things, plus strawberry whipped cream goes well with a lot of desserts – vanilla and chocolate or whatever!

You can use it to top a pie, in hot cocoa, use it to ice cupcakes or a cake, use it to cover a homemade ice cream cake, or use it as the filling in cookies sandwiches.

You’ll need 3 ingredients – heavy cream, strawberry jello powder and powdered sugar.

Brief overview of the recipe:

1. Chill a metal mixing bowl and beaters in freezer for 15 minutes.

You’re wondering if this step is necessary. I have made whipped cream by sort of chilling the bowl ahead of time.. meaning last minute I stick it in the freezer or I pull it out of the freezer too early and by the time I actually whip the cream, the bowl isn’t chilled anymore.

Here’s what I’ve observed – chilling the bowl and beaters ahead of time produces whipped cream that has stiffer peaks (that’s a fancy way of saying it’s more stable).

Overall, I do recommend chilling these items ahead of time, but if you completely forget, putting them in the freezer for at least 5 minutes is better than nothing.

2. Put all 3 ingredients in the chilled bowl and beat with an electric mixer for 4-5 minutes, or until stiff peaks form / it’s scoopable with a spoon and holds its shape.
