Whipped Cream Recipes
and How to Make Heavy Cream

Whipped cream recipes can be made when you have the right type of heavy cream. 

You can always make your own cream if you have access to high quality raw milk.

If you don't have access to good quality heavy cream or raw milk, you can make whipped cream from coconut milk in a can. 

This is a non dairy alternative for those who follow a Vegan or Paleo diet and are in need of a whipped cream recipe. 

You'll just need a few easy tips to learn how to correctly whip cream. 

It's pretty simple once you learn the basics. 

Whipped cream makes a great topping for fresh picked strawberries or blueberries. 

You'll be able to make raw and refreshing low oxalate desserts with a good whipped cream recipe.


How to Whip Cream by Hand - The Basics

What You'll Need for This Recipe:

  • A Very Cold Bowl (put in the freezer for 5 to 10 minutes)
  • A Very Cold Large Whisk (put in the freezer for 5 to 10 minutes)
  • Good Quality Heavy Cream (40% milk fat content)
  • Or 100% Grass Fed Raw Heavy Cream

Instructions:

  1. Pour the heavy cream into the ice cold bowl and tilt the bowl slightly.
  2. Whisk in an up and over movement to aerate the cream to create more volume. 
  3. This also helps the cream to hold its shape.
  4. Whisk until your cream can hold a peak on your whisk.
  5. Then your whipped cream is ready to use on your strawberries, etc.

If you have access to 100% grass fed raw milk, you can make your own raw heavy cream.

How to Make Raw Heavy Cream

Skimming the cream that rises to the top of raw milk is not good enough to make whipped cream. 

You will need one of these machines - a cream separator.  And then you'll be able to make heavy cream using raw cow's milk and even goat's milk. 

How thick your cream turns out will depend on the milk fat content of your animal's milk. 

You can also adjust the machine to create a thicker cream. 

Jersey cows and Nigerian Dwarf goats will have a higher milk fat content which will give you more heavy cream.

The cost of one of these machines is about $200 to $250.  And you can get a hand crank or an electric model.

What Berries are Lower in Oxalates?

Blueberries go great with whipped cream and 1/2 cup of blueberries will only contain 4 mg. of oxalate. 

Strawberries will also be an acceptable berry for low oxalate diets.

Raspberries on the other hand will contain about 36 mg of oxalate per 1/2 cup serving. 

And blackberries are even higher!

How to Make Coconut Whipped Cream

Buy Organic and BPA free coconut milk.

And look for brands of coconut milk that do not contain any additives. 

Food additives can sometimes contain oxalates.

What You Need for This Recipe:

  • 1 Can (13.5 oz) of Organic Full Fat Coconut Milk (chilled in refrigerator for a day or two)
  • A Chilled Mixing Bowl (chill for 30 minutes in your freezer)
  • 1 Tbsp. of Organic Raw Honey or Maple Syrup
  • 1 tsp. of Organic Vanilla Extract

Instructions:

  1. Scoop out the cream that has risen to the top of the chilled can and discard the liquid.
  2. Put the coconut cream into the chilled bowl and whip with an electric mixer for about a minute or until light and fluffy.
  3. Then whip in your sweetener and vanilla. 
  4. It's best to use this whipped cream recipe right away.

Coconut whipped cream is a great alternative for Vegan and Paleo diets. 

Powdered Stevia is High in Oxalates!

As far as I can tell, powdered stevia may contain 42 mg. of oxalate per teaspoon. 

My understanding is that liquid stevia extract will be much lower in oxalate.  Also, be sure to buy organic liquid stevia.

Lower in Sugar Whipped Cream Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1 Cup of 100% Grass Fed Raw Heavy Cream (40% milk fat content)
  • Or Organic Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 1 Tbsp. of Organic Vanilla Extract
  • Switch to Organic Liquid Stevia Extract to Taste
  • Better Choice is 1 tsp. Organic Raw Honey
  • Optional:  1/2 to 1 tsp. of Organic Ceylon Cinnamon

Note:  1/2 tsp. of cinnamon will contain 20 mg. of oxalates. 

To keep the oxalate load down, don't use cinnamon or try a cinnamon extract instead.

Instructions:

  1. Add 1 cup of heavy cream and the other ingredients into a chilled bowl.
  2. Mix ingredients with an electric mixer until you see cloud like formations or stiff peaks form in about 2 to 3 minutes.
  3. Your whipped cream recipe is now ready to serve on lower oxalate fruits or desserts.

In most states, you will at the very least be able to find a heavy cream that has not been ultra-pasteurized.
