Homemade Whipped Cream

I didn't just want the normal, sugary, store-bought whipped cream for my 3 year old's strawberry shortcake, so I invented my own!  I don't think anyone noticed.  :-)  If you're looking for a healthy whipped cream recipe, try this one...it tastes just like the real thing.

Homemade Whipped Cream
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 Tbsp. fructose
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Chill your mixing bowl and beaters for about 30 minutes.

Beat the heavy whipping cream on high until soft peaks begin to form.

Add fructose and vanilla and continue to beat on high until the peaks get firm (like normal whipped cream).

That's it!

Enjoy!

*I'd like to experiment with using honey or agave syrup as the sweetener, but I haven't tried it yet.  If you try it, let me know how it turns out!

I make my own too, only I use powdered sugar. I have tried it with almond extract though, and that's yummy.
