Let’s Just Shake Up Some Whipped Cream:-)

I love whipped cream. I’m not ashamed to say it. When the Barista at Starbucks asks me if I want whipped cream on top of my drink, my answer is always “of course!!!”

When winter comes, I love to stalk up on whipped cream and enjoy homemade salted Carmel mochas 🙂

Well…it’s summer now…with lots of fresh fruit around, I find myself always looking for a fun SIMPLE way to serve it. If I can get the kids involved in making it…even better!!

Today we ran to the store to quickly grab a gallon of milk, and as we were about to walk away from the dairy section, I saw the whipping cream cartons<3. Of course I had I buy one!

Tonight for dessert, we’re going to have fresh blackberries and homemade whipped cream!

Let’s not stop there…where’re the element of fun?

I grabbed a mason jar, added two spoonfuls of powdered sugar, poured about 1/3 cup of whipping cream into it, and….HANDED IT TO MY DAUGHTER TO SHAKE!



So much fun!!! Now, I did have to shake it myself for about a minute or two…I considered that my workout;-)

After we were both tired of shaking….the moment of truth…



It worked and was so yummy!!!!

If you ever just need a little bit of whipped cream, seriously try this! Cleaning up one mason jar TOTALLY BEATS cleaning up a mixing down and beaters. I don’t mind getting out my mixer for big quantities, but it stinks hardcore to do all that when you just want a simple treat:-)

We had a blast making the whipped cream, our dessert was fantastic, and clean up was super easy…I might even say that this was built in portion control because we only made a little bit and didn’t feel like we had to make the whole container or eat the whole container right away:-)




Remember…They Will Love Your Effort<3!!!


Hi! My name is Dominique and I’m lucky enough to be the wife to my True Love and mother to a little girl and a little boy. I grew up in the Midwest but have loved living in NC, our new home.

I’m actually an Industrial Engineer by schooling, but am now a domestic engineer(Stay-at-home-Mom) and feel very blessed to have this job.

I have always loved the challenge in making the most of things…whether it’s figuring out that a filing cabinet , a $10 piece of countertop and a few scraps of wood can be turned into a desk, that a curtain sheer, some ribbon, and a square piece of fabric can be transformed into an Elsa-like dress, or how to provide an interesting lunch for my little girl who is in a peanut free classroom. I love to figure things out and to create.

I hope you enjoy reading my posts. I hope that my posts will inspire you to create. I hope that with my posts you will see that They Will Love Your Effort, whether things turn our perfect or not;-)
