  • 1 cup Heavy Cream
  • 1 tablespoon Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract


  1. In a chilled bowl of a stand mixer, add the heavy cream and begin to beat on medium speed. 

  2. Slowly add in the organic sugar and pure vanilla extract. 

  3. Continue to beat until stiff peaks begin to form. [This typically happens between 6-10 minutes, depending on your exact speed and the type of mixer you are using.] 

  4. Use immediately or place in refrigerator for up to 24 hours.

Recipe Notes

  1. Cold heavy cream and a chilled bowl work best and fastest for this recipe, but if you are in a pinch it will still turn out great if the bowl isn't chilled (the cream needs to be cold though)
  2. Stop once you have stiff peaks.  Over beating heavy cream will cause it to separate and form buttermilk and butter if beaten too long.
  3. You don't have to have a stand mixer, it's just what I have that works best.  A regular mixer, or even just a bowl and a whisk will work great.
