Pumpkin Spice Whipped Cream

Who said pumpkin spice was just for lattes? A dash of pumpkin pie spice is all you need to add some fall flair to homemade whipped cream. 

Sprinkle into a mixing bowl of warm vanilla extract, fine powdered sugar, and heavy whipping cream to create a sweet silky topping suitable for spooning over a cup of coffee, a slice of pie, or a stack of waffles. Of all the ways to enjoy this Pumpkin Spice Whipped Cream, right out of the bowl is most tempting.

We would suggest printing this recipe to have handy this holiday season… we would, but it’s so simple and so sure to please that, after whipping it up a few times, you’ll know it by heart. In about five minutes, you’ll have peaks of pumpkin-y goodness that put any canned store-bought whipped cream to shame.

Key Ingredients

  • Heavy whipping cream: Essential for a thick, rich whipped cream.
  • Powdered sugar: Contains a small amount of cornstarch that helps the whipped cream maintain its fluff and acts as the foundation of sweetness.
  • Vanilla extract: Builds upon the powdered sugars sweetness with a caramelly warmth.
  • Pumpkin pie spice: The star of the show! This is the blend of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves, and allspice that characterizes Fall flavors.

How To Make Pumpkin Spice Whipped Cream

  1. Add the heavy whipping cream, powdered sugar, pumpkin pie spice, and vanilla extract to the bowl of a stand mixer. 
  2. Use the whisk attachment to mix on low speed. Once the ingredients are combined, increase the speed to medium-high, and continue to whisk until stiff peaks form (4-5 minutes).
  3. Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator until ready to use.

Tips and Variations

  • For a vegan option, substitute heavy whipping cream for full-fat coconut cream! There are also a few vegan heavy whipping cream alternatives available in stores for those who don’t like the taste of coconut.
  • The colder the better! Use heavy whipping cream straight from the fridge and chill your mixing bowl and attachment beforehand.
  • Do not over-whip: too much mixing will give the whipped cream a grainy texture.

Storage and Reheating

Refrigerator: Fresh is best! But if you must, you can store Pumpkin Spice Whipped Cream in an airtight container in the back of the fridge (the most consistently cold spot) for up to 4 days.

Freezer: We don’t recommend freezing this whipped cream.
