- Heavy Cream - this is the main ingredient of whipped cream. When heavy cream is aerated (air is incorporated) it becomes a light and fluffy consistency that can be a delightful addition to cakes and desserts. For best results, choose heavy cream with a high fat content, ideally around 36-40%. Higher fat content contributes to a richer and creamier texture.
- Sugar of Choice - in this recipe, you can use regular cane sugar, white sugar, brown sugar or other granulated sugar of choice. For a lower carb option, replace sugar with a sugar-free substitute such as granulated monk fruit sweetener or erythritol. If using stevia powder, be sure to convert the amount of stevia according to package directions. You can also use 3 Tbsp of powdered sugar instead of 2 Tbsp of sugar in this recipe.
- Pure Vanilla Extract - this ingredient adds a touch of warm and aromatic flavors to your whipped cream, but not required. You can also use other extract of choice, such as almond extract, coffee extract or peppermint extract.
- Crushed Oreo Cookies - we'll need to finely crush the oreo cookies before mixing into the whipped cream. For best results, gently scrape off the creamy filling from each cookie then process them in a mini blender until they turn into a fine powder. Alternatively, you can place the Oreos in a sealed plastic bag and crush them with a rolling pin, but use a sieve to sift out any large chunks as they can clog the piping tip and make it messy to pipe.
- Hand mixer or stand mixer - these tools will help you whip the cream efficiently. A hand mixer is easier for smaller batches (for whipping 2 cups of heavy cream or less), while a stand mixer is great for bigger ones.
- Piping Bag - If you plan to decorate desserts or pastries with your whipped cream, a piping bag will help you do exactly that. It provides precision and control when dispensing the cream onto your treats, allowing for beautiful and decorative designs. I used a disposable piping bag like this one.
- Piping Tip of choice - I used this Ateco 849 Closed Star Piping Tip.
Easy Oreo Whipped Cream Recipe For Any Dessert Frosting
Prepare the Oreo Cookies
- Take four Oreo cookies and gently scrape off the creamy filling from each cookie.
- Process them in a mini blender until they turn into a fine powder. Alternatively, you can place the Oreos in a sealed plastic bag and crush them with a rolling pin, but use a sieve to sift out any large chunks as they can clog the piping tip and make it messy to pipe.
Whip the Heavy Cream
- Pour the cold heavy cream into a 2 quart mixing bowl. If you're using a stand mixer, use the whisk attachment. You can also use a hand mixer with beaters.
- Add the vanilla extract and sugar.
- Begin whipping the cream at low speed, gradually increasing to high as it thickens.
- Whip the cream until it thickens and reaches stiff peaks, or until the beater starts to leave tracks in the cream (see pics)Note: Be careful not to over-whip, as it can turn into butter.
- Gently fold the finely processed Oreo powder into the whipped cream
- Yields approximately 2 cups of whipped cream
- Use the freshly whipped cream to top your favorite desserts, such as cakes, pies, fruits, or hot beverages like coffee or hot chocolate.
- If you have leftover whipped cream, store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator. It will keep well for 1-2 days. You may need to re-whip it for a few seconds to restore the desired consistency.
