How to make homemade whipped cream:
Now it is time to combine the ingredients into a bowl and whisk. Once you combine the ingredients, you can either whip the cream by hand or use a mixer. Just use the one you prefer.
Either a hand held mixer or a Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer with whisk attachment will work. Just use a cold bowl and whisk to make the whipped cream.
I have done it both ways and they both work great.

How to make whipped cream with milk:
You can use 2/3 cup whole milk and ⅓ cup melted butter instead of whipping cream. I have used this in a pinch when I wanted homemade whipped cream but didn’t have heavy whipping cream.
The butter is used for fat content that is needed to make the whipped cream thicken. Since milk does not have a high enough fat count, the butter added to the milk does the trick.
You an easily make this work even if you do not have heavy cream to use. Give it a try and you will how easy this is!
Can you make whipped cream with half and half?
Half and Half with a tablespoon of melted butter can be used as a heavy whipping cream in most recipes. However, this mixture will not whip as the fat content is not high enough in half and half.
