Whipped Cream

  1. Pour the desired amount of cream into a blender. The small 8oz carton serves 2 hungry hippos like my husband and me. (If you're still hooked on sugar you can add a dash of the sweetener of your choice, but I do not recommend it for optimal health) You can also use a food processor, kitchen aid or immersion blender. I use the paddle attachment on my Ninja blender. 
  2. Blend on a low setting. The liquid will all of the sudden puff up and look like whipped cream. 
  3. Blend another 30 seconds to thicken. Do not over blend! This will cause the cream to be too buttery. It should not take more than 2 minutes to thicken. 
  4. Pour the cream into a bowl and top with berries and sliced almonds. You can eat it like this with a spoon or dip watermelon in it. The sugar in the fruit will make it taste sweet! You can use any variation of fruits.
