I used cream for mine and vanilla. I have my kitchen aid mixer, but a blender or food processor would have worked also. To mix it up, I added my cream and put in little vanilla. I didn’t really measure but I would say it was about a tablespoon of vanilla.
I then mixed everything until the whipping cream was the right consistency. If you would like the whipping cream sweeter – you could add sugar… I didn’t though. I was planning to put my whipped cream on strawberries, so I was pretty excited just to have the vanilla flavoring added. I did take a little of the extra left over and froze it. I’m going to see if it works out as a replacement for ice cream. I think maybe a little sugar would have worked well with the frozen cream?
It did work out well though! I haven’t tried it with low fat cream yet, but that may be my next try.
