  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream (250 ml)
  • 1-2 tablespoons granulated or powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Add heavy whipping cream to bowl and beat by hand with a whisk, or use an electric mixer. If using an electric mixer, beat on medium to medium-high speed (I use speed setting 6 on my kitchenaid).
  • Once mixture starts to thicken, add sugar and vanilla.
  • Continue to beat for a few more minutes to soft, medium, or hard peaks per your preference.
  • Use immediately for best use, but leftovers can be stored in the fridge for several days.
