I'm going to share with you my stance on whipped cream. Yes, I have a stance on the subject.
I believe that cream, in a pure form, is not "bad" for you. That is how I feel about all real food, actually.
So many foods get a bad rap but I think it is because we have taken a good thing, add a ton of unnecessary and artificial extras, put it in a can and ruin it. Not cool.
In the last few months I have begun to replace the things in our fridge with only real food. If I want something, I need to make it myself and know what goes into it. Whipped cream was the first.
Have you ever whipped your own cream and then poured a piping hot cup of black coffee over the top?
It is divine.
Nothing artificial, just raw cream and good beans.
I challenge you to try it. Pour cream into your mixer, let it beat until peaks form and store whatever you don't use in a container in the fridge to be enjoyed on a daily basis. I think when we take the time to make even the most simple things we love ourselves, there is a special fondness rekindled to our relationship with food.
