Flavored Whipped Cream Recipe

 Flavored Whipped Cream

Who would of though it would be so easy to make.  This whipped cream is made using heavy cream and instant pudding.  Since the instant pudding comes in so many different flavors, feel free to pick the flavor you desire and of course you may want to add a few drops of food coloring to let everyone know its flavored since we eat with our eyes.

Chilling the work bowl and the whisk in the freezer  before starting is a help because the cream whips best when chilled.

This whipped cream is stabilized by the instant pudding so there is no need to a gelatin mixture.  Also remember whipped cream is very perishable and should only be out of the refrigerator for less than an hour.  When used to ice a cake it must be kept refrigerated and it is best eaten the same day it is iced. read more

Some people claim it is a good idea to chill the bowl and the whisk prior to whipping. read more
