Mason Jar Whipped Cream - West + Rose

Mason Jar Whipped Cream

 
 
The latest Pinterest/Facebook trend has been all about whipped cream from a mason jar.  I loved the idea of it, but thought it was too good to be true!  I detest having to clean up what seems like twenty different kitchen tools after making homemade whipped cream.  While the taste of homemade is worth it, it really is such a pain!
 
 
So earlier this week I decided to try it for myself to see what the fuss was about...
 
 
I decided to experiment with the following measurements:
 
1 C Heavy Whipping Cream
1 T Granulated Sugar
1 t Coconut Extract (Use whatever flavor extract you like)
 
 




 
This is a super intricate process folks...pay attention...
 
Dump ingredients into mason jar, screw on lid tightly and shake for at 3-5 minutes.
 
 
 
After three minutes my whipped cream looked like yogurt
 
 
 
After 5 minutes it was the embodiment of perfection.  Perfectly stiff peaks of whipped cream with a hint of coconut.
 
 




This takes some arm stamina, as you have to vigorously shake the mason jar full of cream.  You will not make whipped cream by leisurely waving the jar around, you have to whip it!  It is well worth the effort!
 
I put a dollop of this freshly whipped cream in my coffee.  I really wish this could have been an Irish coffee because this heavenly stuff would only enhance the flavor of the whiskey in an Irish coffee!  Alas, I had just gotten home with my sick Bubba who had thrown up in the car on the way to school this morning and ended up getting a fever of 103...so no whiskey was enjoyed.  #MamaProblems
 
Happy Whipping!
 
Linking up with Kristen O for #ThurstyThursday because I was dreaming about this in my hypothetical Irish coffee...

  3. Wow, is it really that easy? Who knew? I like that you can change up the flavor with different extracts. I would have never thought to use coconut. Sounds yum!
