Pumpkin Whipped Cream
Pumpkin whipped cream is easy to make with only 3 ingredients. Pumpkin spice whipped cream is great on hot cocoa, pie, cake, and cupcakes! Try pumpkin whipped cream on top of pumpkin pie!
I used to really like cool whip.
Then I made homemade chocolate whipped cream and everything changed.
I was finally convinced that homemade whipped cream was better than cool whip and ever since I’ve been on a flavored whipped cream kick.
First chocolate whipped cream, because chocolate is a no brainer!
Then I made strawberry whipped cream which is perfect for summertime cupcakes, cakes, ice cream cake, etc.
Now, pumpkin whipped cream! Perfect for all your fall whipped cream needs.
I can see this pumpkin whipped cream being outstanding on a cup of hot cocoa! You can use it to top a pie, use it to frost cupcakes or a cake, use it to cover a homemade ice cream cake, or use it as the filling in cookie sandwiches.
- heavy whipping cream: should be at least 36% fat
- powdered sugar: sweetens the whipped cream and makes it stable
- pumpkin pie spice: adds that pumpkin spice flavor everyone loves
How To Make Pumpkin Spice Whipped Cream
- Chill a metal mixing bowl and beaters in freezer for 15 minutes.
- Put all 3 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.
Homemade Whipped Cream Starts with a Chilled Bowl
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, but if you completely forget, putting them in the freezer for at least 5 minutes is better than nothing.
Is Heavy Cream the same as Heavy Whipping Cream?
Heavy cream and heavy whipping cream are essentially the same thing, and both must contain at least 36% or more milk fat. A product called “Whipping cream” without the word “heavy” in the front is not the same thing and only has 30-35% fat.
How Long Will Whipped Cream Last?
I recommend making this whipped cream right before serving it as whipped cream without gelatin isn’t stable for a prolonged period of time.
