Powdered Sugar and Whipping Cream for Easy Recipe for Making Homemade Cool Whip

To make your cool whip, you will need cold heavy whipping cream and powdered sugar. Start by using a stand mixer with a whisk attachment OR an electric hand mixer with beaters to mix the ingredients. Begin slowly mixing the heavy cream until soft peaks form. As you continue to whip, slowly add in the powdered sugar until stiff peaks form and it is fully blended in. Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to use.

2. Add heavy cream to a cold bowl.

Start by setting your bowl and mixer attachments in the refrigerator to cool. This will help ensure that the cream will whip up better and form soft peaks faster. Once it’s cold, pour your heavy cream into the bowl and mix on medium speed until thick peaks start to form. The process can take anywhere from 2 to 4 minutes, depending on how large a batch you are making and how powerful your mixer is. Keep an eye on it as it whips so that you don’t overmix it.

3. Gradually add the powdered sugar while beating the cream.
