I’m not sure any summer dessert will ever beat strawberry shortcake at my Grandmother’s house topped with her freshly-made whipped cream using her homemade whipped cream recipe. She’d add some heavy cream to her chilled mixer bowl, then let me add the sugar and vanilla before starting it whirring. I’d practically have my nose at the edge of the bowl, watching as it magically transformed into those billowy white clouds of sweet goodness!
Now, my kids are usually lucky to get a shot of a little canned whipped cream right in their mouths before we top their strawberry shortcake. But last week I got nostalgic and wanted them to taste that fresh-made whipped cream goodness, too. While I shared memories of Grandma.

Kid-Made Shaker Jar Homemade Whipped Cream Recipe
Supplies & Ingredients:
You can chill the jar in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes beforehand, but it’s not entirely necessary. It just might reduce the amount of shaking time needed.
This “recipe” is really too simple to be called a recipe. Just let the kids add the ingredients to their mason jar. Put the lid on extra tight. And start shaking, shaking, shaking!
Have them shake for about 3 to 4 minutes or until the cream inside turns to soft peaks of whipped cream. (Don’t shake too long, or you’ll get sweet butter!)
The kids will think it’s magic! And love adding it as a topping to their shortcake or other summer treats.
