Hi Bold Bakers!

WHAT YOU GET: A pretty pink, fluffy, strawberry whipped cream, made in about 5 minutes.

If you’ve been following me for a while, then you know that I love to finish off my desserts with a big, healthy serving of Homemade Whipped Cream. This summer, I’ve found myself craving in-season fruit-based desserts, like my Mixed Berry Shortcake, and I thought a good strawberry whipped cream would be the perfect addition!

My homemade strawberry whipped cream doesn’t call for real strawberries. Rather, I use cold strawberry jam to help flavor the fluffy whipped cream. I add the slightest touch of lemon juice, which helps amplify the strawberry flavor.

I also love the delicate color of pink the jam gives the cream! This whipped cream is perfect for decorating a cake, like a Simple Vanilla Sheet Cake, as a filling for Homemade Cream Puffs, or to serve alongside fresh, ripe fruit as a dip. 

The Right Cream For Whipped Cream: Heavy Cream Vs Heavy Whipping Cream

You want to be sure that the heavy whipping cream you are using to make whipped cream is at least 30% fat. At the grocery store in the US, the creams that have above 30% fat are typically called “whipping cream,” “heavy whipping cream,” and “double cream.” These creams are almost the same thing; however, whipping cream does have a slightly lower fat percentage than heavy whipping cream. Using heavy whipping cream, which I tend to use, will result in sturdier, richer, and creamier whipped cream. 

In other countries, the proper cream for whipped cream may be called something else, depending on the brand. But as I said above, just be sure it has a least 30% fat!

Tools You Need To Make Strawberry Whipped Cream

Gemma’s Pro Chef Tips For Making Strawberry Whipped Cream

  • The cream and jam should be cold for the best results!
  • Be sure that your cream is at least 30% fat so it will whip up properly.
  • The touch of lemon juice only brings out the strawberry flavor – it won’t taste lemony.
  • You can use this whipped cream to top a cake, fill cream puffs or eclairs or serve on the side of any dessert that goes well with strawberries.
  • You can replace the strawberry jam with another jam of your choice for a different flavor.
