Homemade Raw Whipped Cream



There is something irresistible about fluffy peaks of fresh whipped cream! Little and big finger alike can’t help but it dip their fingers in a take a bite. It is simple, luxurious and delicious. When added to a regular old treat whipped cream becomes extraordinary. That morning cup of coffee, topped with a little bit of fresh whipped cream and oh ya, bliss in a cup, I’m just saying.

I used to think that whipped cream only can in a container from the store, boy was I wrong! If you’ve never made it yourself you will be surprised at just how easy it is! You’re family will thank you for it! 

I would be honored if you would join me at For the Family where I am joining an amazing team of writers and sharing how to make your own whipped cream. After that stay around a bit and catch up on what is being shared there!


50+ Real Food Ice Creams and Toppings


50+ Real Food Ice Creams and Toppings-

It’s hot outside, the sweat drips from your brow. You try to decide what will cool you down. Lemonade? No, that won’t do. An iced mocha? Yummy, but it doesn’t hit the spot today. Then it hits you, ice cream, you need ice cream.

July is national ice cream month after all so what would be more fitting that a bowl of ice cream?

Ice cream often gets a bad rap for not being healthy. That’s just because people are used to ultra-pasteurized cream, cups of white sugar, and artifical ingredients. When ice cream is made from ingredients such as  raw cream, raw milk, coconut milk, maple syrup, raw honey, homemade vanilla extract, and fresh fruit it’s nothing to be feared.

As you look through the collection some are still considered  a “special treat” because of larger amounts of unrefined sugar but many others are perfect for a more frequent treat.

Ready to dive in? I  know I am! There is something for everyone in amongst these 50+ real food ice creams and toppings.

*For those of you that might wonder, this is the ice cream maker I have, it has held up wonderfully. This one is the one I have my eyes on, it lovely but has a pretty price tag.

Sprouted Strawberry Shortcake


Sprouted Strawberry Shortcake-

Who doesn’t love fresh strawberries — vibrant red and bursting with flavor? They’re one of my favorite foods to eat in the spring! Although I’ve meant to plant my own strawberries for several years now, that still hasn’t happened. For now, I’m happily enjoying them from a roadside stand.

Strawberries are perfect on their own, but I love adding them to a lightly sweetened dessert (like… shortcake!) for a spring treat. When I was little, my family would sprinkle a biscuit with cinnamon and sugar, and top it with whipped cream and strawberries.

I’m sharing my shortcake recipe at Traditional Cooking School, so if you want to learn how to make this tasty treat yourself be sure to head over there!

Fresh Lemon Whipped Cream


Fresh Lemon Whipped Cream-

There is something about lemons that make me smile. They are bright, cheery, and hold a promise of something tasty. I even had my room painted to match the tea cup in the picture above when I was in high school.

I have a slight obsession with lemons. When I lived in Mexico I had a seemingly endless supply of them since there were trees on our property. I created all sorts of treats;   lemon curd,  soothing lemon chamomile popsicles, lemon scones, strawberry lemonade,lemon bars, honey-sweetened lemonade, well, you get the picture. Many of those recipes ended up my cookbook Steeped, others made their way to the blog.

Once I moved back to the States lemons didn’t show up as much at my house. I forgot how expensive they can be in the store! Except for a few here or there that I would buy when visiting family I haven’t really bought any in about 10 years. Thankfully I have  an awesome friend that had more lemons than she needed so I had a supply that just recently ran out.

Fresh Lemon Whipped Cream -

Lemons on the counter again inspired me to start drinking my morning vanilla lemon “tea”. It also left a few to make a tasty treat like this fresh lemon whipped cream. I’m not going to lie and tell you that I didn’t eat a few spoonfuls of it as soon as I whipped it up. I’m sure it would be amazing on lemon scones, or better yet with lemon scones and lemon curd. I didn’t have quite enough lemons left to make all three so I stuck with the whipped cream.

That’s another obsession I have, whipped cream. Have you noticed that this is my fourth post about whipped cream? Check out the recipe index to visit my other friends. Believe me there are still more to come this spring.

Back to this tasty lemon whipped cream. It is very easy to make, yet seems so fun and a bit fancy when you serve to your guest with fresh fruit or other dessert of your choice. I prefer to use raw cream but I can’t get my hands on any now so I settle for pasteurized cream from Trader Joe’s.

However you make it I hope you enjoy it as much as I have! Now off to the kitchen with a spoon I go…

Fresh Lemon Whipped Cream
  • 1 pint whipping cream
  • 4 TBS powdered sugar
  • 2 TBS lemon juice
  • 1 TBS lemon zest
  1. Mix the powdered sugar, lemon juice, and lemon zest in a medium sized bowl.
  2. Pour in the cream. Whipped on high for about 5 minutes or until slightly stiff peaks begin to form. (if you go to far you will make sweet butter.)

Real Food Chocolate Whipped Cream


Real Food Chocolate Whipped Cream-

Light, chocolate goodness. A bit of heaven in a bowl. It is amazing on its own, delicious on cup cakes and let just say it’s taken my coffee to a whole new level. I can also see myself dipping strawberries in this cream in the spring.

It is simple to prepare and full of wholesome ingredients that there is little guilt in indulging in this mildly sweet treat. Raw cream is always best but it’s not possible then a second best is low-pasturized cream. This real food chocolate whipped cream is so good that it might not last long in your house!

I used an iSi cream whipper but you can also make this by hand.

Real Food Chocolate Whipped Cream
  • 1 pint cream
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • 2 TBS maple syrup
  • 1 TBS vanilla extract
  • ⅛ tsp real salt
  1. Gently fold the ingredients together.
  2. Pour in your isi whipped cream canister or whipped on high with a hand held mixer until light and fluffy.
