You don’t need to waste whipped cream anymore. Continue reading to discover creative, savory, and useful uses for this versatile meal.

Whipping cream may be used for a variety of things. A typical application is whipped topping for cakes, pies, and other sweets. It is also used to prepare sweets, soups, sauces, and drinks. Beat heavy cream using a whisk, hand mixer, or stand mixer to make whipped toppings. Air bubbles are formed in the cream during the mixing process, and when the cream is whipped, the fat is dispersed among the air bubbles, causing them to adhere together and form foam. To bind together, the fat particles must be cold.


Chocolate Pudding 

If there was ever a kid-friendly method to use up leftover whipping cream, this is it. If you want an even quicker method to use leftover whipped cream, substitute some whipping cream for the milk in a pudding mix. It thickens, creams, and smoothes it out, and it’s delicious.


Make coffee with whipped cream

Coffee and whipped cream are inseparable! Even though the cream is meant to be served immediately, it will keep in the refrigerator for many days. That’s a good reason to use it to sweeten your coffee. Add a small quantity of whipped cream to your coffee if you drink it with sugar. Alternatively, use less sugar from the start and replace it with whipped cream.


Use it to garnish your breakfast

Please make the most of your leftover whipped cream by adding it to your breakfast. Add a couple of teaspoons of whipped cream to your pancakes, crepes, French toast, or waffles. You can even put it in your hot cocoa.


Make a chocolate mousse out of it

Incorporate any leftover whipped cream into your ice cream recipe. You’ll create an interesting mash-up of whipped cream and ice cream in this manner. The finished dish will have the consistency of a chilled mousse, and you’ll want to sample it right away! Alternatively, you may make delicious ice cream by combining leftover whipped cream and condensed milk. Mix the ingredients for about 4 minutes, or until the mixture is thick and creamy, and then place it in the freezer.

You also have the option of making chocolate mousse. Make a quick chocolate ganache (or melt some chocolate), set it aside to cool, and gently fold it into your remaining whipped cream.


Chocolate-Pecan Pie Bars

Pecan Pie typically reminds me of Thanksgiving, but these bars are also great for summer picnics since they can be cut into squares and served to a large group. They also only take two tablespoons of whipped cream, so it’s a simple way to use up the last bit you don’t want to waste.


Combine it with your oatmeal

There aren’t many steps to making oatmeal for breakfast. Follow the recipe as written, then add a tablespoon or two of whipped cream, along with the dried fruits and nuts. Reduce the quantity of sweetener you use since your oats will be fluffier and sweeter. 


It can be used as frosting

Not in the mood to make anything? But still have too much leftover whipped cream, freeze it! Spoon it onto a baking sheet coated with wax paper or make delicate tiny swirls with a piping tip. Place the dollops or swirls in the freezer until firm, then store in a freezer bag until needed.

Frozen whipped cream can be used in coffee or hot chocolate. The frozen swirls can also top a heated pie or fruit crumble. Leave them out for 15 to 20 minutes to defrost before treating yourself and your loved ones!


How to Keep whipped Cream Fresh and Other Tips

Whipped cream has a very long shelf life in the refrigerator. If one of the previously stated recipes appears appealing, but you don’t want to make it right now, store your cream in the back of the fridge (where it will be the coldest and least likely to be knocked over) and use it later.

Make homemade butter with the remaining of your heavy cream. Make a small quantity by shaking the cream in a jar, or a big amount by beating the cream in a mixer or blender until no buttermilk remains. This is a fantastic project to do with children.

If you’re busy with other things, you may freeze heavy cream to make it easier to use in recipes later. Frozen cream will still whip and perform all of the functions you require. Try switching to heavy powdered cream if you don’t want to freeze your heavy cream or are concerned about its shelf life. You may store it in your cupboard and mix it anytime you need it—in whatever quantity you need—thus eliminating all future leftovers.
