How to Make Whipped Cream from Scratch
You might think that it is difficult to make whipped cream from scratch. It is actually incredibly easy. The benefit of making your own whipped cream is that it will taste so much better than store-bought. With this recipe, not only are you making your own whipped cream, you are making almond whipped cream.
Whipped cream is made using heavy whipping cream, sugar and almond extract. Using an electric beater, you will whip this cream and sugar together into stiff peaks. That is all that is needed to make whipped cream from scratch.
How to Store Almond Whipped Cream
Once you have made this almond whipped cream you will want to store it in an airtight container. This whipped cream will stay fresh in the refrigerator for about 4 days. If you will not use all of the whipped cream before it will go bad, you can freeze the almond whipped cream. The almond whipped cream will stay fresh in the freezer for up to 4 months. This is a great way to make one batch and then use it as needed over time. Freeze it in single serve amounts to be able to use them easier.
