Freeze it for hot chocolates
If you’re looking for an indulgent treat that you’ll thank us for later, this is it. Create little mounds of whipped cream and pop it into the freezer. Next time you make a hot chocolate, you can drop one (or two) into your cup for the perfect finish.
Use it make half and half for your coffee
If you blend your leftover whipped cream with equal amounts of milk, it will transform into a light and creamy half and half, perfect for your morning coffee. There’s no better way to start the day!
Use it to top your breakfast
If you feel like a sweet treat to start your day, whipped cream is equally that. Use your leftover whipped cream to top your pancakes, pop it on your French toast or serve a scoop onto your waffles. No matter the breakfast staple, whipped cream is the perfect addition.
Turn it into chocolate mousse.
When you’ve already got some freshly whipped cream, making chocolate mousse couldn’t be much easier. Some recipes simply require you to fold melted chocolate into whipped cream before popping it into the fridge to set. Simple but so tasty.
Whip up some milkshakes.
If hot drinks aren’t your thing, whipped cream makes the perfect addition to milkshakes too. Whip up your favourite milkshake and top with some whipped cream for a refreshing treat.
Mix it into your oatmeal
If you fancy something a little healthier to kick start your day, whipped cream is an excellent addition to oatmeal. Simply follow the recipe to make your oatmeal before mixing in a couple of tablespoons of whipped cream along with toppings of your choice for a light and fluffy oatmeal.
Use it as frosting
If the whipped cream is good to eat for a couple of days, you could always transform it into frosting for some cupcakes. While this one takes a little longer, it’s a great way to use up a lot of leftover cream. What’s more, you can pop the frosting into the freezer and save it for later.
So, that’s just seven reasons never to through away perfectly good, totally delicious whipped cream again.
