Two Cream Vanilla Milkshake

Homemade Whipped Cream


  • 1 Cup Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 1/2 Cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1/2 Tsp Vanilla Extract


  • Freeze a metal bowl and whisk attachments to hand mixer for 30 minutes.
  • Using a hand mixer, whip cold whipping cream on low for one minute.
  • Raise speed to medium, continue whipping for one minute to form peaks. (See post for detailed instructions)
  • On low, whip in vanilla.
  • Gradually whip in powdered sugar, small amounts at a time.
  • Whip until blended.


Using a cold metal bowl and cold whipping cream makes for faster peak formation. Be sure your bowl and whisk attachments are completely clean and dry. Any water on the bowl or whisks can have an effect on the peaks forming correctly. Use 1 Tbs less of powdered sugar, and add in 1 Tbs of hot cocoa mix for a delicious chocolate whipped cream.
