Healthy Whipped Cream – Homemade Reddi-Wip

Pin It!

Behold, the great wall of healthy whipped cream…

Don’t laugh… but as a kid, squirt whipped cream was one of my favorite foods. Every time we held a slumber party, soccer-team party, or girl scout party, we’d be sure to buy extra cans of Reddi-Wip, and my ice cream sundaes looked like this:

Small scoop of ice cream, ocean of chocolate syrup, mountain of whipped cream.

Homemade Reddi-Wip whipped cream is light and airy and swirly, just like the real thing! However, this one has no preservatives, stabilizers, emulsifiers, or cholesterol. It is straight-up awesomeness: great on ice cream, hot chocolate, pancakes, squirted straight from the can (my personal favorite), or used anywhere else you’d use squirt whipped cream.

How to make homemade whipped cream   Christmas present

When I first saw the Isi “Easy Whip” mini whipped cream maker at Crate & Barrel, I was so curious as to whether or not it would work with my Homemade Coconut Cool Whip that the machine immediately went onto my Christmas list. Some people ask for jewelry for Christmas; some ask for fancy cars.  But you can’t eat a fancy car. And I really hope you don’t eat your jewelry.

You can, however, eat this:

Healthy Whipped Cream – Homemade Reddi-Wip 

(can be sugar-free)

  • 1 can “heavy cream” such as coconut cream or Mimicreme (If you can’t find coconut cream, which can be purchased at Trader Joe’s or at an Asian market, you may use the thick cream that forms at the top of most full-fat cans of coconut milk when it’s chilled. If you go that route, I’d recommend using the cream from the tops of 2 cans.)
  • powdered sugar or powdered stevia to taste
  • optional: add a few drops of vanilla extract or almond or peppermint extract for a flavored whipped cream. And yes, this does work with my Chocolate Whipped Cream Recipe.

Healthy Whipped Cream Instructions: (If you don’t have a whipped cream machine, whip up your cream and sweetener with beaters instead, until stiff peaks form.) Prepare the whipped cream container and charger according to manufacturer’s directions for your specific brand/model. Pour in the cream– if using coconut cream, it’s best to not chill first. In seconds, the 1/2 pint you put in will yield 5 times that amount! (So 2.5 pints total for this recipe.) Use anywhere you’d use squirt whipped cream, and it stays fresh for up to ten days in the refrigerator.

    I had no idea that there was such a thing as a whipped cream machine! Like you, I ask for kitchen items for Christmas. My big gift this past Christmas was my All-Clad CopperCore cookware! Much better than jewelry 🙂

    I am a newly retired educator and I LOVE Pinterest and all the neat things I’m learning. I didn’t know there was such a gadget, but love the idea that more healthy whipped cream can be made without all the mess of the mixer! I have granddaughters who are “foodies” and I can’t wait to share this with them!!
    Thank you for sharing your great information. It must be very fulfilling to have a website and blog about the things you love! Also, I am impressed that you are willing to share this great item with your own money! WOW!!! While I was in education, I always tried to make everything a “giveaway” of some sort. Everyone loved it and seemed to be thrilled whether they won or not. It makes things FUN! Will pin and follow you!

    Oh, your sleepover story sounds like my eldest son and those cans, he just LOVES them to the last drop or squirt. Me me me!

  17. Kelly says:

    Looks tasty!

    I’ve seen this kind of thing on Top Chef, but always thought it must be a fancy, expensive, real chef kind of thing. Excited to see it’s so much more accessible!

  18. cecelia p says:

    I loooved whipped cream from a can as a child, honestly my brother and I could probably polish off an entire can together in 2 days during the height of strawberry season when we were kids! I’d love one!

    I repinned your copycat panda express recipe because it’s my new favorite dinner!

  19. Maya says:
