Create your own tasty maple whipped cream with only 3 ingredients! Treat your family to our sweet maple whipped topping this holiday season.

Kim and I love to create flavored whipped creams. In fact, we have quite a few recipes on the blog. If you haven’t tried our bourbon whipped cream, amaretto whipped cream or our Irish cream whipped topping, then I encourage you to do so.

For today’s post, we’re sharing our maple whipped cream. It’s super simple and perfect for the upcoming holiday season. There aren’t a lot of tips that are needed for this recipe. My only recommendations are to use a high quality maple syrup and to avoid over whipping the ingredients. Speaking of ingredients, you only need 3 of them to make this maple flavored whipped topping.

How to make maple whipped cream from scratch:

First, measure out the maple syrup, heavy cream, and vanilla extract. After that, place the ingredients into a large mixing bowl.

Next, use a hand mixer with a whisk attachment to blend the ingredients.

Start on a low speed and then increase it to medium once the topping begins to thicken.

The ingredients have been combined into a topping.

Last, continue whipping the cream until it thickens. Once it can hold stiff peaks, it’s done!

That’s it, your maple whipped cream is finished. Kim and I hope you enjoy it and wish you all the best 🙂

    1. Hi Margaret! This is going to melt very quickly since it’s flavored whipped cream. We didn’t use a stabilizer. It will work as a frosting on cupcakes that can be stored in the fridge and enjoyed cold. However, I wouldn’t try to transport them (not sure if that’s what you were planning). It may work for a single layer cake, but again it should remain cold. It’s great for shortcakes, French toast, pancakes, etc. Hope this helps! 🙂
