Easiest Homemade Whipped Cream

I've been whipping cream for years and will never go back to cool whip, but recently realized a new method that makes it ridiculously easy to whip cream from scratch.

I had the idea after making homemade mayo with an immersion blender in a jar. I wondered if it would work with cream as well, and it does!

If you don't have an immersion blender or a jar it can fit into, you can use your mixer with a whisk attachment, or a vitamix, or even a whisk and your own arm muscles. They all yield the same delicious, creamy whipped cream, they will just take varying amounts of time to get there.

Homemade Whipped Cream

1 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
2 Tbsp Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla

I recommend chilling your immersion blender attachment and jar in the freezer for at least 15 min if you can. It's fine if you don't, but I really like to start with cold utensils.

Pour cream, sugar and vanilla into jar. Insert immersion blender and blend. That's it. Keep blending until the liquid thickens. Done! When you remove the blender from the jar, it'll be full or rich, creamy whipped cream.

If you use a Vitamix to do this, you'll want to blend until the sound changes. You'll know when it's done because it goes from a lower tone to higher and you can tell it's not mixing anymore.

If you use a mixer, beat on high speed with your whisk attachment until it thickens to the consistency you like.
