Whipped Cultured Cream to Top Your Dessert


A great way to add enzymes and probiotics to a dessert is through a cultured whipped cream topping. Whipping heavy cream to aerate and lighten it, with a touch of maple syrup or honey and a dash of vanilla, makes something that cannot be beat.

Whipping a cultured cream such as sour cream will produce a rich, flavorful topping, but each cultured cream has a slightly different flavor. Try one of the cultures you already have, or experiment with all three!                                      


  • 2 cups cultured cream (sour cream or kefir cream  or crème fraîche made with heavy cream)
  • 4 tablespoons maple syrup or honey
  • Dash of vanilla extract, cinnamon, nutmeg, or other flavorings


  1. Place cultured cream, maple syrup, and flavoring in a large bowl. Beat using a hand-held mixer or a whisk until soft peaks form.
  2. Add flavoring as desired.
  3. Store in refrigerator for up to 1 week.
