Spoon, or pipe, dollops of whipped cream onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat.

Freeze. Then, transfer frozen dollops to a freezer bag, and return to freezer.

To Use: Add a frozen dollop of whipped cream to a mug of coffee or hot cocoa, and it will immediately start thawing. To use as a garnish for cake or pie, just place a dollop on each slice 10-15 minutes before serving.


  • Frozen whipped cream is just the thing to cool hot drinks, without diluting them.
  • Use as an alternative to whipped cream in a can and those tubs of whipped topping.
