Default Homemade Whipped Cream

Forgive me if this has already been posted.

Yesterday I tried to make a low carb desert for myself since on the LCHF diet I don't get many of those.

Take Heavy Whipping Cream (0 gm carbs)
add a bit of Stevia (also 0 gm carbs)
and a dash of vanilla extract (1.6 gm per tbsp) I used a lot less than that.

Start whisking until it thickens to desired consistency. For me it took longer than expected (over 5 minutes) and my arm started to get tired. So next time I will use an electric whisk or mixer. You can then stick it back in the fridge or even the freezer for a while. I dont know if it will turn to ice cream but it might.. anyone? It was delicious and a lot better for you than cool whip.

I guess you could even add other things to enhance it (almonds, walnuts or pecans?)

And you might try a few berries to see if you can handle a few them. Your meter will let you know. When the rest of the fam is doing something with cool whip, I make my own with a stick blender.

Technically, if you place it in the freezer, it will turn into 'ice cream', but it will simply be iced whipped cream - not the ice cream you're thinking about. But we have recipes here on our recipe board for authentic ice cream made low-carb, so if you're jonesing for real ice cream, then take a look.

The whipped cream you're making is great for a multitude of treats like mbuster suggested, and if it ever gets cold enough in south Texas to want hot cocoa, we make ours using HWC and Walden Farms chocolate syrup, and then we top it with our homemade whipping cream, just like they do at restaurants. If low-carb pumpkin pie is ever on your menu, top it with about a cupful of your homemade whipping cream and you'll be in low-carb heaven! Use your imagination & you'll be keeping a bowl of this in the fridge at all times!

Oh, yes,... I think I had about a gallon of that over the 4-day weekend with my low carb pumpkin pies. It was absolutely incredible.

I normally only use SteviaClear, but I added a few drops of EZ-sweets to mine. Truly heavenly. The dish was more like Whipped Cream with a dash of pumpkin pie on the side.

Some cooks swear that the type of mixing bowl makes a difference--glass or metal. I just know that I can never make the cream fluffy with plastic.

I did use a stainless steel bowl. I saw the recipe on foodwishes and he mentioned it took a couple of minutes. Well it took longer for me and I was beginning to think it wasn't going to work. I was persistent and finally I got it to thicken up. Next time I will use my electric whisk or the mixer my wife uses to make cakes.

From my experience, using a chilled metal bowl works better than plastic.

I'm guessing it's because the metal keeps the cream chilled better. But I'm no engineer.

I was just going to say the same as David . . . I put the steel bowl and the beaters all in the freezer for a half hour before I whip cream.

Way too much work. I use a cream whipper device. Poor in the whipping cream (grass fed from the co-op), vanilla extract (sugar free from United Grocer), and a tiny bit of Truvia. Seal, shake, and screw on the nitrous cylinder, done.

And what should I expect to spend for this nifty little cream whipper? Will such an expenditure wreck my Social Security-based budget?
