Cinnamon Whipped Cream is a flavored homemade whipped topping that can go on all kinds of Fall and Thanksgiving desserts. This easy whipped cream recipe is a combination of heavy cream, powdered sugar, vanilla, and of course cinnamon!
Spiced Whipped Cream
I love this recipe because it is simple to make and tastes amazing with all sorts of Fall recipes like these Pumpkin Rice Krispie Treats or Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes! Unlike traditional homemade whipped cream, this is a cream that is used to add a little extra Autumn flavor to your desserts.
Key Ingredients You’ll Need
- Heavy Whipping Cream: When you combine this with confectioners sugar, it will make the cream really thick and fluffy.
- Cinnamon: The key ingredient is ground cinnamon that will be combined with vanilla. You can add more or less depending on your preference.
How To Make Cinnamon Whipped Cream
- Step 1. In a clean bowl, add the chilled heavy cream and beat using a hand or electric mixer on medium speed. It will begin to get frothy and bubbly. Beat the cream for 3-4 minutes on high until thick and stiff with peaks.
- Step 2. Pour in the powdered sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla extract and beat on high until fully combined.
How To Serve Cinnamon Whipped Cream:
There is an endless amount of Fall desserts that you can serve this whipped cream on top of and a great alternative to frosting.
I personally love putting this on top of things like pecan pie, apple pie, pumpkin pie, coffee, spice cakes, french toast, waffles, pancakes, carrot cake, hot chocolate and even use it as a fruit dip!
How To Store Whipped Cream?
There is a good chance you won’t need all of the whipped creams that are made. So, the best method of storage is in an airtight container or covered in a bowl and tightly wrapped in plastic. You will want to store the whipped cream in the coldest area of the refrigerator which will be in the back. It will stay fresh for up to 2 days.
Tips & Tricks
- This recipe makes about 2 cups of cream, so you won’t need all of it depending on the size of your dessert. If you don’t use all of it, you can store it.
- Add food coloring to make the whipped cream pop!
- You can add pumpkin spice to the whipped cream instead of cinnamon if you like!
