History of Whipped Cream Day
If you have never tasted the delightful whipped cream, you are missing something awesome! In short, whipped cream is a cream that is "beaten" with a whisk or mixer until it becomes light and fluffy.
For best results, ice cream containing no less than 35% fat will be whipped. The whipping cream process is very simple, involves a manual whisk or mechanical stirring with a high-speed mixer.
While some people prefer the simple taste of whipped cream, others go further. You will often find whipped cream with ingredients like sugar, vanilla, or chocolate.
Today, there is also a variety of non-dairy whipped creams available for those with milk intolerances. Most are marketed as vegan-friendly.
How to celebrate National Whipped Cream Day
If you don't eat dessert regularly, let make an exception for National Whipped Cream Day, treat yourself to a light and airy snack like strawberries, and whipped cream. Tired of the same old cream? Try something different, like whipped mint ice cream on a yellow cake or whipped chocolate ice cream on your cheesecake. If you are fed up with regular whipped cream desserts, try using whipped cream instead of ice cream for desserts like cobbler, pudding, or pie. You can even combine whipped cream with other flavors like savory chips or spicy corn.
Canned whipped cream certainly comes in handy, but you can also make your own at home very easily. For a standard whipped cream, combine whipped cream (or heavy whipped cream), sugar (or powdered sugar), and vanilla extract in a mixing bowl. Hit with electric mixer until peaks form. The small peaks show fewer air bubbles, creating softer whipped cream, which will slowly flow into puddles. Hit longer for larger peaks, which means the cream will retain its shape for a longer time.
Whipped cream is not just for desserts, and National Whipped Cream Day is the perfect opportunity to open up and try something you've never tried before. If any of your local restaurants serve a side dish with savory ice cream, ask a friend to try it! On the other hand, invite a friend to your venue for dinner and make a non-sweet version of the toppings yourself. A box of salted whipped cream goes well with a variety of soups, or you can mix whipped cream with herbs to add extra freshness to your favorite pasta.
