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!).

Try it as a frosting on doctored up white cake, pineapple upside down cake, orange cake, or a whipped topping with angel food cake or angel food cake cupcakes.

Top your favorite fruity drink with it too! We have a recipe for pina colada sangria that is a summer favorite! Or try 3 ingredient pineapple whip smoothie with pineapple whipped cream.

  1. Do you use the smaller box of Jello? This looks delicious!

  2. Can you use instant pudding instead of jello in this recipe to make other flavors like chocolate, butterscotch etc.?
