Recipe Tips & Notes

The colder the bowl, the smoother the cream. 

We recommend having every ingredient cold as possible. The colder the whipping cream, the bowl, the whisks, the smoother your recipe will be. This gluten free recipe will go great with every whipping cream need there is. Adjust the flavours substituting the vanilla extract with various other flavoured extracts available.

This recipe goes great with our homemade gluten free pumpkin pie and also our Strawberry & Whipped Cream Cake too! There really isn’t a recipe that calls for whipping cream that this won’t work great for. We use it for absolutely everything we need and enjoy the smooth, creamy texture it always provides.

Wishing you had a hand held mixer to make this recipe easier? Mix and whip with power, convenience and comfort Hamilton Beach Hand Mixers. Their handles are designed for control and comfort, and their unique Bowl Rest™ feature allows the mixer to sit on the edge of the bowl to eliminate messy whipped cream drips.

    Just the right amount of sugar and vanilla for a little flavour over whipping just plain cream. Loved it with berries.

    Good recipe. Chill mixing bowl and beaters in freezer for 10 minutes before preparing. Also,can experiment with different extracts to get just the right flavor to go with that perfect recipe (rum extract,almond,banana,coconut,maple,coffee)~tried them all 🙂
