I love homemade whipped cream. Between the light, fluffy texture and how you can control the sweetness and add any kind of flavoring you like, it’s a real treat. It’s great for any dessert, can be used it as an icing, and makes an especially delicious addition to coffee. It also goes by the name Chantilly cream or creme Chantilly.
