Not long ago, I ran out of yogurt and needed something to add to the fresh strawberries I was fixing for my husband. I happened to have some whipping cream and suddenly harkened back to my days as a coffee barista at Peaberry Coffee. The whipped cream we made to top the coffee drinks was absolutely the BEST! What was the secret? Instead of adding sugar to the whipping cream, we added a mix of Irish Cream and Vanilla flavored syrups. When combined, these flavors make what is commonly known as “French Vanilla”.
Well, I just so happen to keep “French Vanilla” syrup on hand (it’s one of my favorites to add to coffee or tea). So I whipped up a batch of this heavenly whipped cream and it was SO delicious, my husband and I wanted to just skip the strawberries and go right to the bowl of whipped cream! Several weeks later, my BFF came for a visit and I whipped up a batch for her to taste. She thought it was absolutely delectable!
Some of you may have never attempted to make your own whipped cream. I’m here to tell you, it’s SO easy and the taste is so incredible, you won’t want to go back to store-bought!
