Homemade Whipped Cream + Spiced Cider



With the cooler weather upon us, there is nothing better than a cup of hot apple cider on a chilly day.  My mom-in-law taught me how to make homemade whipped cream a few years back, and it always reminds me of this time of the year…we literally put it on EVERYTHING!  Hot apple cider, pumpkin pie, coffee, strawberries…the list goes on!  This homemade whipped cream is so fluffy and light, it seems just a little less sinful 😉

You have to try this recipe out, it is so quick and easy, you will never buy store-made whip again!

Life is too short to skip the whipped cream…:)



1 Cup Heavy Whipping Cream

1 Tbsp Sugar (or to taste)

1 tsp Vanilla Extract

Add all ingredients to a medium sized bowl and mix on your highest speed.  Mix until you get to a whipped cream consistency, this usually takes between 3-5 minutes!!  Let sit in the refrigerator for about 5 minutes to set and cool!

For the cider and toppings, I used the Market Pantry brand of spiced cider and heated it up in the microwave.  I added a healthy dollop of the whipped cream, drizzled some caramel syrup, and sprinkled some cinnamon and sea salt on top!!  SO YUM.

Congratulations on getting through mournful Monday, but now it’s Tuesday and you’re plugging away to make it to middle-of-the-week Wednesday which is basically Friday… right? This graphic tee from Zaful definitely helps me make it through the week with a little smile on my face 🙂  Every caffeine addict should own this coffee-themed tee!!  I thought the text was so stinking cute!!  I paired it with these super comfy joggers, which literally feel like you’re wearing pj’s, I added a plaid shirt around my waist and a cute little plain black baseball cap to complete the look!  I wanted to dress it up a little bit, so I added some studded strappy heels, and called it a day!  Hope everyone has a quick, easy week!! <3
