Homemade Strawberry Whipped Cream
Strawberries originated in Europe in the 18th century.
Have you ever thought about tidbits of history like that? I just assume they’ve always been around.
Strawberries are perfectly eaten raw, but equally impressive in recipes such as jams, desserts, bread, and my favorite…. salads.
Strawberries have powerful nutrition and health benefits…if eaten alone, but let’s have some fun and prepare a very easy Homemade Strawberry Whipped Cream Recipe.

This month's Pinterest Challenge is very different from our typical decor post. I actually love throwing in something like this. Cindy from County Road 407 plans each month's challenge. I just love her creativity!
This month our inspiration comes one from one of my favorite treats, strawberries!
Isn't this image just gorgeous? You can see more HERE.
If you are visiting from Cindy's blog, County Road 407, I am so happy to have you here! Cindy lives in Texas. She has quite the gift for decorating with such a cottage farmhouse style that is just so beautiful!
This recipe whips up rather quickly!
Ashlyn is back with yet another great recipe addition. She has been the sole recipe provider here on the blog for the last year. She does a great job. Cooking and developing recipes is a passion of hers. Luck for me!
She hulled the strawberries with one of my metal straws. This is so smart! You simply start the straw at the bottom of the berry and push it through the center. It easily hulls the strawberry to remove the stem.
I really like doing it this way. You retain much of the strawberry as opposed to slicing off the green top.
Place your strawberries in a blender and purée. I really like my Ninja blender. We use it all the time with various attachments to make whipped cream, pesto, smoothies, dressings, sauces, and more.
Put your strawberry purée through a sieve to remove the seeds.
Heat up the purée in a small saucepan on low heat until reduced to about half. This enhances the strawberry flavor. Set aside to cool.
Your other ingredients are powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and whipping cream.
Whip together whipping cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract with a mixer. Beat until it starts to form. Then add chilled strawberry purée. Continue beating until stiff peaks are formed.
Look how pretty it is!
I've had this handy decorator tool for many years. I use it to decorate cupcakes, desserts, and mashed potatoes!
Look at how thick and rich it looks! It's equally as yummy!
