Happy National Whipped Cream Day! I love homemade whipped cream. It’s so easy to make. 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 use it as an icing, and makes a delicious addition to coffee. It also goes by the name Chantilly cream or crème Chantilly.

This recipe combines the elements of sweet and tangy from the mandarin oranges and strawberries, as well as the whipping cream and yogurt for a perfectly light and balanced dessert.

Let me know if you make this one and what are some of your favorite ways to enjoy whipping cream?
