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!

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 – unfortunately there are no substitutions. This gives it body- no regrets!
  • Eggnog – the star of the show.
  • Powdered Sugar – also known as confectioner’s sugar. You can adjust to increase the thickness of your whipped cream.
  • Nutmeg – the flavor synonymous with eggnog.

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.
