Whip Up to One Cup of Cream without Getting Out Your Mixer!
How to Make Whipped Cream by Hand
Here's what you'll need to whip cream by hand:
Cold heavy cream
Large cold bowl
Large balloon whisk
For each 1/2 cup cream, start with 1-2 Tbsp sweetener, a small pinch of salt, and maybe 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract. Salt brings out the flavor of the cream, so don't leave it out.
Cream whips more slowly but into a more stable foam if everything is cold. Whisk back and forth rather than in a circles. It's more efficient, especially at the beginning.
