Irish Cream Flavored Whipped Cream is a great way to add boozy flavor to coffee and desserts. Only three ingredients, so it’s simple to make!
I’ve wanted to share this recipe with you for the longest time. I’m not really sure what’s taken so long, but it kept getting pushed back behind other posts. Finally, here it is. This is one of my things to add to coffee. You know how much I love coffee, right?
Coffee with Kahlua was one of the first coffee recipes I wrote. It’s a recipe I still enjoy today, although I like to add a little something extra. Irish Cream is a wonderful flavor, so why not add it to an already awesome coffee drink. That’s how Irish Cream Flavored Whipped Cream came to be.
It starts off with three simple ingredients. Irish Cream liqueur, heavy cream, and powdered sugar. The liqueur and heavy cream should be very cold when you start to whip them.
Place all the ingredients together in a large bowl. Trust me here. There were sticky spots plastered across the kitchen the first time I made Irish Cream Flavored Whipped Cream because the bowl I chose was too shallow.
Use a stand mixer, hand mixer, or a whisk to combine the ingredients until the mixture is fluffy. I recommend using a stand mixer or hand mixer because it takes several minutes to whip enough air into the cream.
The alcohol in the liqueur does make it difficult for the cream to stiffen, so be careful not to add additional liqueur.
The Irish Cream Flavored Whipped Cream will be soft and will not hold it’s shape. It’s best used for coffees, like an Iced Coffee with Bailey’s and Kahula, and desserts. It can be quite boozy, so make this recipe your own. Adjust the liqueur to your taste or leave it out completely and make regular whipped cream.
