This is a kid-created recipe made by my daughter. If you want to get your kids in the kitchen, making homemade whipped topping is a great place to start! Not only is it fun and easy for them to help make, but they can pick their own favorite flavors to experiment with. Peppermint is the flavor my daughter chose, which is perfect timing as St. Patrick’s Day happens to be just around the corner.

Whipped Cream Tips & Tweaks

You may have heard this before, but one big whipped-cream making tip we can give you is to make sure the heavy cream, bowls and beater are all chilled. This should result in a quicker, lighter whipped cream.

Simply pop them into the fridge for 10 to 15 minutes before beginning. This isn’t a necessary step, but if you can remember to do this ahead of time, it’s nice to have a whipped cream that will stay emulsified longer.

Be careful not to over-beat the cream! You will have a nice and smooth, creamy texture to your whipped topping if you can stop at just the right time. The cream will end up separating if you go too far.

The food coloring is definitely optional, but it is fun to serve green food and drink on St. Patrick’s Day. Top it with some Oreo cookie crumbs and/or sprinkles to make it even more festive. Your topping is best served immediately, but can also be covered and chilled in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours.

How to Use Your Fresh Peppermint Whipped Cream

I personally love topping my latte or other beverages with the fluffy clouds and then drizzling it with chocolate syrup for a fresh chocolate-mint flavor. You can use it on desserts, ice cream, or as a filling. Serve it with fresh fruit, on top of pancakes or waffles, etc.

All of our kid-created recipes also include food photos taken by them. Here are the pictures taken by my kids:
