Make Fresh Whipped Cream With A Hand Blender

Make Fresh Whipped Cream with a Hand Blender

If you don't have a stand mixer, a cocktail shaker, or food processor to make whipped cream, you can use a hand mixer or immersion blender to make a fresh batch quickly -- without working your arm muscles, either. Image from jeffreyww.

Combine your ingredients in a bowl, then blend with your hand mixer or immersion blender for 20-30 seconds. Your whipped cream will be done when soft peaks start to form.

Whether you just like to save space on your kitchen counter, or you're taking dessert to a party or potluck dinner, a hand mixer makes fresh whipped cream easy to make at home or away. Some immersion blenders come with a cup, and if yours does, then great -- but you can also just use a bowl.

    *Not a euphemism

    Oh wow, slow news day? This isn't a life hack,
