Here's a tangy Sugar Free Greek Yogurt Whipped Cream recipe that's perfectly thick and creamy. The tangy addition of the Greek Yogurt gives the whipped cream a tangy flavor. I love serving it with sweet breakfast treats like pancakes, oatmeal, scones and more

- 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.
- Granulated Sugar-Free Sweetener of Choice - in this recipe, we'll be using 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.
- Greek Yogurt, strained - I used the Fage 0% Fat Greek Yogurt, but any fat content and any flavored Greek Yogurt works. For the best texture, make sure to drain as much water from the yogurt as possible before adding to the whipped cream.
- 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. I also like this Ateco 869 French Star Piping Tip
Sugar Free Vanilla Whipped Cream With Added Greek Yogurt
- For best results, chill mixing bowl in the fridge for 15 minutes before whipping. Keep heavy cream cold in the fridge until then.
- Pour the cold heavy cream into the chilled mixing bowl. If you're using a stand mixer, use the whisk attachment. You can also use a hand mixer with beaters.
- Add 2 Tbsp granulated Monk Fruit Sweetener and vanilla extract
- Begin whipping the cream at low speed, gradually increasing to high as it thickens.
- Do a quick taste test and add more Monk Fruit Sweetener if you want it sweeter
- 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 in the Greek yogurt using a silicone spatula.
- 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.
- Yields approximately 2 cups of whipped cream
