Whipping cream using a blender

I have always been a fan of doing things the quick and easy (lazy) way. I will show you how to whip cream using a blender. (Note: I just used a cheap blender for this but in theory just about any blender should work; any of these blenders on Amazon will work fine. (Edit: Since doing this tutorial, I bought a BlendTec Blender and have been using that. It works really well and does not require me to pick up the blender and shake it because of the way the blades spin.)

Before you begin, you will need to make sure that the cream you will be whipping is chilled (put it in the refrigerator at least 2-3 hours before whipping.

In this example, I put 2 cups of cream in my blender. How much you are able to put in depends on your blender and blender size, but I do not recommend putting more cream than 1/4th the capacity of your blender.

Make sure you have the lid on and everything is covered securely (or you will make a mess like I did. I forgot to cover the spout).
Once the lid is on, turn the blender on while shaking the blender up and down. You can perhaps get away with not shaking the blender, but I find that it does a better job whipping air into the cream. It also makes the cream more uniform.

As you are shaking, you will begin to feel it getting creamier (it will feel heavier as it comes down, because as it gets creamier, it sticks together more). Once you feel it is creamier (and can often hear the motor slowing down) you should turn your blender off to check it. Total blending time will probably only be about 15 - 30 seconds. Be careful to not over blend the cream.

Once it is blended properly, you can mix in sugar to taste. Watch the video below to see how I did it.
Here is the cream that I whipped in the blender.
Buy a blender on Amazon.

  2. Do you.mix in sugar with blender or by hand?

    1. I mix the cream first, then I add the sugar and stir it with a spoon (in the blender) and blend occasionally just to give it a good mix.

  3. Useful information.I am actual blessed to read this article.

  4. Hi, i m using amul whipping cream(30%fat) but i m unable to whip it. It remains just liquidy..what to do

    1. Perhaps it is not cold enough. It should be in the fridge for at least about four hours before you try to whip it.


  6. Hi I am using whipping cream and I kept it in the freezer for about 2-3 days so will it be okay or I shall take it out before whipping it for 2-3 hours?

    1. Good question. I have never frozen cream before so I am not sure if it will work or not.
