MAKING HOMEMADE WHIPPED CREAM
Let's begin by preparing our very own homemade whipping cream. Assemble ingredients.
Before you start chill blade and bowl in the refrigerator for an hour.
Pour heavy cream or whipping cream to the chilled bowl..
Mix in sugar...
Turn the mixer or hand blender to a medium speed and start whipping the cream. Within 2- 3 minutes, the cream will start to get frothy and thicken up, keep mixing. All I need is a soft peak, so I whipped it for another 2-3 minutes and the whipped cream increased in volume and was very airy and thick.
To check if the whipped cream has the right consistency - remove the whisk/blender from the mixer/base. Turn it upside down and if the whipped cream maintains its soft peak firmly without falling off the blade - it's ready to use and is perfect.
Whipped cream is all ready.
Place it in the refrigerator to chill.
Put a dollop of whipped cream on fresh fruits and serve chilled.
Chop fruits. If using canned fruits, drain their liquid.
Add whipped cream to a bowl.
You can even use a can of mixed fruit cocktail and skip fresh fruits.
Mix in all the chopped fruits and add canned fruit syrup. Since I was doing the Independence day theme, I mixed all the other fruits in the cream and saved cantaloupe and grapes to give it an Indian flag look.
Fruit cream is ready. Keep it in the refrigerator and serve it chilled.
