So this month I’ll be sharing quite a few chocolate recipes.  Key to several of them (and to life in general) is whipped cream.  But I’m not talking about that fake stuff in a can.  I’m talking about REAL whipped cream.  Luckily, it’s amazingly simple to make, and can be made with all real ingredients.

Homemade Whipped CreamMake your own whipped cream

1 cup heavy whipping cream (organic preferably)

1 – 2 T pure maple syrup (grade B organic preferably)

1/2 t. vanilla (organic preferably)

Step one:  Pour the cream into the bowl of a stand mixer.  Using a whipping blade (see picture below), start mixer on top speed.

Step two:  Add the maple syrup and vanilla.  Walk away and let the mixer do its thing.

Step three:  Once it looks like whipped cream, taste it to make sure it tastes great – add more syrup and/or vanilla as needed.

You can use this right away, or store it in the fridge for a few days in a glass bowl.

Simple, delicious and decadent.  Enjoy!

Isn’t it great how easy this is? Want more ideas for things that make a crazy life easier and better? Check out my list of favorite things for more great time-savers, products, and services.
