Want some whipped cream?

Skip the store-bought stuff full of additives, artificial flavors, trans-fat laden vegetable oil and high fructose GMO laden corn syrup. Even the “real” stuff made with dairy is made with milk from cows in confinement; those that eat an inappropriate diet of grains that are full of GMOs, and given hormones and antibiotics.

It’s extremely simple to make decadent whipped cream at home, lightly sweetened with a natural sweetener like Grade B maple syrup. The best part is that you have control over each and every ingredient and the quality of those ingredients!

Homemade Whipped Cream

About 1 cup of cream (Organic at a minimum, raw from grassfed cows preferred)
About ½ – 1 TBL pure maple syrup (I like Grade B the best)
Optional- dash of cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla or almond extract

In a large, clean glass bowl, mix the cream and maple syrup. Using a whisk, whip until desired thickness. You can also use an electric mixer.

*Honey may be used instead of maple syrup. Dairy-free? Coconut cream may be used instead of dairy cream.
