Sugar-Free Peppermint Whipped Cream

It's officially cozy season, and we're here for it! Whether you're making hot cocoa in jammies on a Saturday morning or looking for a topping to add to your favorite holiday dessert, this Sugar-Free Peppermint Whipped Cream is super yummy, easy to make, and parent/kiddo-approved!

Sugar-Free Peppermint Whipped Cream

INGREDIENTS
  • 1.5 cups grass-fed, organic heavy cream (or for a dairy-free option, use one chilled 13.5oz. can of coconut cream or 1.5 cups of chilled full-fat coconut milk*)
  • 1/4 teaspoon 100% pure peppermint extract
  • 2 tsp organic vanilla extract
  • Optional sweetener: 1-2 tbsps powdered monk fruit
  • Optional add-in: fresh mint leaves, chopped

DIRECTIONS

  1. Add the heavy cream or coconut cream to a medium-sized mixing bowl (if using coconut cream, drain the coconut cream, removing any extra liquid from the can; tip: the cream floats, so store the can in the fridge upside down or open from the bottom). 
  2. Using a hand-held mixer, begin to blend the cream until light and fluffy peaks begin to form. Be sure not to over-whip so you don’t accidentally make butter ;) 
  3. Slowly, gradually add your sweetener of choice, vanilla extract, and peppermint extract. 
  4. Blend all ingredients until thoroughly mixed together, and until your desired consistency is reached. 
  5. Enjoy on your favorite holiday recipes! (Wanting to make this ahead of time? Store in an airtight glass container for up to five days; just mix again before serving for fluffiness.)

We also love using this whipped cream atop chocolate pancakes, holiday baked goods, or other desserts for a boost of healthy fats and festive flavors!
