Whipped cream

What is whipped cream? About the ingredient whipped cream. Including 464 recipes with whipped cream, nutrition data, and where to find it.


Whipped cream  is cream that has been beaten by a mixer, whisk, or fork until it is light and fluffy.

Whipped cream is often sweetened and sometimes flavored with vanilla, in which case it may be called  Chantilly cream  or  crème Chantilly.

Whipped cream may be sold ready-to-use in pressurized containers; when the cream leaves the nozzle, it produces four times the volume of cream, twice the volume produced by whipping air into it. Using this technique, it may also be prepared in reusable dispensers, similar to a seltzer siphon bottle, using inexpensive disposable cartridges.

The whipped cream thus produced is unstable, however, and will return to a more or less liquid state within half an hour to one hour. Thus, the method is not suitable for decorating food that will not be immediately served.

Whipped cream is a popular topping for desserts such as pie, ice cream, cupcakes, cake, and chocolate and caramel puddings. It is sometimes used in other recipes such as soups.
