Heavy cream and fresh ingredients are blended together to make three sweet and savory varieties of whipped topping, that are begging to be scooped onto your cakes, pies and other pastries.

This flavored whipped cream has a rich, full-bodied flavor that brings out the flavor of your sweet treats and salty snacks. Preparation takes only ten minutes, so you can whip up a batch of your favorite variety, place it in the fridge and scoop the perfect finishing touch onto your pumpkin pie or stuffed spinach pastry.

To begin, we have a Bourbon and Brown Sugar whipped cream; an adult-flavor that tastes dreamy on cakes, pies, lattes, etc. Take your date night up a notch by serving it with some strawberries or other fruit for dipping.

One variation could be swapping the Bourbon out for Irish whiskey and topping your next hot Irish Coffee with it.

When most people think of whipped toppings, they think of sweet treats like chocolate pie, ice cream sundaes and strawberry shakes. Homemade whipped cream adds a light and fluffy touch to your favorite desserts.

But if you want to take it a step further, you can infuse the heavy cream with fresh ingredients that transform the whipped cream into a non-sweet version like lemon zest, ground mustard, dill, garlic and/or other spices. Similar to compound butter, this recipe takes a basic condiment and infuses it with a distinct flavor that transforms the dish.

Try our zesty Lemon-Dill whipped topping on savory dishes for a fluffier, lighter version of compound butter. What to use it on? Think salmon, potatoes, vegetables, soup, canapés, etc.

Our sweet whipped toppings make a great addition to cakes and pies. However, you can also whip up a savory topping that pairs well with toast, crackers and crusty bread as well as savory pies and pastries.

Serve this topping as a party dip or add it to the main course to balance out the flavors. With so many options, there are endless ways to experiment in the kitchen.

Lastly, this Pumpkin-Spiced whipped topping is the perfect addition to fall treats and beverages! It is sweetened with a touch of honey and spiced with pre-blended pumpkin-pie spice; usually consisting of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves and allspice. Try dipping into it with some apple slices or other fall fruits.

Each recipe produces approximately 1 cup of whipped topping that can be stored in the fridge for 3 or 4 days, but it is best if used within 1 day. You can easily double or triple the recipe.

These toppings are made with heavy cream, so make sure you keep them in the fridge so they won’t spoil. Try storing your whipped cream in a glass jar or a covered bowl to maintain freshness.
