Pumpkin Spice Whipped Cream. Made at home with sweetened whipping cream and spices. How could you not love something so simple as that? I love going to the grocery store at this time of year. So many yummy flavors of the season in foods and drinks. I noticed the pumpkin spiced whipped cream the other day in the grocery store, but honestly, there are so many things you could spend an extra $5.00 on, I decided to skip it. I realized when I got home though, that I had everything I needed to make some myself. So I did.
There is nothing like a dollop of real whipped cream on a hot drink… And unlike the canned whipped cream, it doesn’t quickly melt away within a minute into your drink. Real whipped cream adds a latte-like, frothy cream topping, and sticks around so you can actually enjoy it.

I added powdered sugar, but I decreased the amount in the recipe from what I used. Little too much. I didn’t think it would be too sweet when I plopped some in the whipping cream, but I prefer it less sweet. You can add more or less to your taste.
In a small glass or stainless steel bowl (chilled in the refrigerator for a few minutes is best), combine:
1 cup cold whipping cream
2 tbsp. powdered sugar
1/4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
Whip on high speed with a mixer until stiff peaks form. Done! How easy is that? Keep stored in a covered container in the refrigerator. Makes about 1 1/2-1 3/4 cups.
A fast and yummy fall treat…
One treat always needs another so it’s not lonely, so how about making some…
