This quick whipped cream frosting combines all of the airiness of whipped cream with the richness of cream cheese frosting. And it only takes 5 minutes!


  • 1 1/4 cups (300ml) heavy whipping cream, cold
  • 3/4 cups (86g) powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 8 oz (226g) cream cheese, room temperature


  1. Add the cream cheese to a large mixer bowl and beat until smooth and creamy, then set aside.
  2. Add the heavy whipping cream, powdered sugar and vanilla extract to a large mixer bowl and whip on high speed until soft peaks form.
  3. Add about 1/3 of the whipped cream to the cream cheese and gently fold together to combine so that you don’t deflate the whipped cream. When mostly combined, add the remainder of the whipped cream and gently fold together until completely combined.
  4. Add whipped cream to your desserts. It’s best if used right away. Once piped or added to a dessert, it will stay stable and not wilt. If you refrigerate it for a while before using it, it will likely deflate when you stir it back up again.
