Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes
Servings 4 cups


  • large mixing bowl, chilled
  • stand mixer or hand mixer


  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 3 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • Add the whipping cream, sugar, and vanilla to a large mixing bowl.
  • Using a stand mixer or hand mixer, whip on medium-high speed until you achieve peaks that are in between medium and stiff. Do not over-whip or you will end up with chunky whipped cream.
  • Use immediately or store in a closed container in the refrigerator. Whipped cream will keep for about 3-4 days, however, the stability will degrade the longer it sits.
