Pineapple Whipped Cream
What’s in homemade pineapple whipped cream
To make pineapple whipped cream you need heavy cream, powdered sugar and a packet of pineapple jello!
If you’re looking to buy pineapple jello, Jello brand sells an island pineapple flavor. Some stores carry it and others don’t. However, walmart has their own brand (great value) and they have a pineapple flavor that you can find in store!
How to make pineapple whipped cream frosting
1. Chill a metal mixing bowl and beaters in freezer for 15 minutes.
You’re wondering if this step is necessary. I have made whipped cream by sort of chilling the bowl ahead of time.. meaning last minute I stick it in the freezer or I pull it out of the freezer too early and by the time I actually whip the cream, the bowl isn’t chilled anymore.
Here’s what I’ve observed – chilling the bowl and beaters ahead of time produces whipped cream that has stiffer peaks (that’s a fancy way of saying it’s more stable).
Overall, I do recommend chilling these items ahead of time.
2. Beat the ingredients
Put all ingredients in the chilled bowl and beat with an electric mixer for 4-5 minutes, or until stiff peaks form / it’s scoopable with a spoon and holds its shape.
What to use pineapple whipped cream on
Use pineapple whipped cream as frosting for cake and cupcakes. Use it as a topping on pie. Use it as fruit dip (yum!).
If you’re looking to find some cute pineapple cups, I ordered the ones in the photos from amazon.
