The one issue that I used to struggle with was after sitting for a while the whipped cream would deflate. Well, I figured out the trick to stabilize it and help it stay fluffy for days in the fridge.

Custom Flavors – Add powders at the same time that you add the sugar. Add liquids once the cream is thick enough to see a trail follow the beater. All flavors are to taste, add more if it is not strong enough.

Chocolate Whipped Cream – Add 2 tablespoons cocoa powder.

Vanilla Almond Whipped Cream (my favorite) – Add 1 teaspoon vanilla extract and 1 teaspoon almond extract.

Vanilla Bean Whipped Cream – Add 1 tablespoon vanilla bean paste. Chocolate Whipped Cream – Add 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder at the time you add the sugar.

Hot Chocolate Whipped Cream – Add 2 tablespoons unprepared hot chocolate mix.

Peppermint Whipped Cream – Add 1 teaspoon peppermint extract and 7-10 drops red food coloring.

Strawberry Whipped Cream – Add 1 tablespoon strawberry jam (at the time you add liquids).

Lemon Fluff Whipped Cream – Add 1 teaspoons lemon extract and 1/2 tablespoon lemon zest.

Peanut Butter Whipped Cream – Add 1 tablespoon creamy peanut butter.

Pumpkin Spice Whipped Cream – Add 1 teaspoon cinnamon, and 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg, 1/4 teaspoon ginger.

Praline Whipped Cream – Add 2 tablespoons crushed praline topping folded into the stiff-peaked whipped cream.

Marshmallow Whipped Cream – Add 2-3 tablespoons of marshmallow fluff once soft peaks form. Continue whipping until cream reaches medium or firm peaks. This is a stabilized whip cream.

Stabilizing whipped cream with dry pudding mix – Add 2 tablespoons dry instant pudding mix. I love flavoring this way too. I prefer Jell-O Instant French Vanilla pudding. It helps the whipped cream stay fluffy longer.
