I love all things eggnog this time of year. It immediately gives you that warm, cozy feeling and is so full of flavor! I blend  it into all my favorite things including Eggnog Ice Cream and Gooey Butter Eggnog Cookies. So why not Whipped Cream?

Eggnog Whipped Cream is the perfect addition to all of your fall and winter favorites – pies, hot chocolate, coffee, cheesecake, eggnog, pumpkin cake, and gingerbread loaf. But I won’t judge you if you enjoy it straight out of the bowl!

It’s quick and easy to whip up and will make everyone think you’re Martha Stewart! Once you’ve made homemade whipped cream, you’ll never go back to the store bought whipped cream or cool whip.

One thing I’ve learned in my years of making whipped cream is that the flavor is unmistakable and can’t be replicated. You’ll never regret making this stuff yourself!

So simple and so delicious.

Eggnog Whipped Cream Ingredients

Like most of my recipes, it’s made with just a few simple ingredients and of course, the main star.

  • Heavy Cream – Heavy cream, also known as whipping cream, gives it body.
  • Eggnog – The star of the show. You can use homemade or store-bought.
  • Powdered Sugar – Also known as confectioner’s sugar. You can adjust to increase the thickness of your whipped cream. Organic powdered sugar is not a suitable substitute.
  • Nutmeg – The flavor synonymous with eggnog!

Variations

There are so many ways to make this eggnog whipped cream even more fun! The rum is probably the best way add a little holiday cheer to your festivities!

  • Garnish with nutmeg
  • Add 1 Tablespoon rum
  • Increase to a teaspoon of nutmeg

Tips to Make the Best Whipped Cream

  • Use very cold heavy whipping cream.
  • Freeze your mixing bowl and mixer attachments to add an extra chilled element.
  • Start by slowly whisking the cream.Interior of glass measuring bowl, filled with spiced whipped cream.
  • Don’t over-whip!
  • Make up to four hours ahead to maintain volume. You can refrigerate homemade whipped cream for up to 24 hours ahead of time, but it may begin to separate so I always prefer to wait.
  • Freeze leftovers! It works surprisingly well.
