Whipped Cream with Berries

whipped cream berries

Who knew it was so easy to make whipped cream? Grab a shaker with a metal agitator ball–or a tightly lidded plastic container–and shake, shake, shake! This is a perfect opportunity to get the kids in on making part of the meal. Dollop some of the whipped goodness on top of fresh berries or other desserts.


  • 1 “shaker” with agitator ball
  • 1 pint of icy cold whipping cream
  • Confectioner’s sugar, to taste
  • Fresh berries or other fruit


  1. Fill your container about halfway (or less) with whipping cream. This will allow room for the cream to grow.
  2. Hand the container to an enthusiastic child. Encourage jumping, running, singing, dancing, and rolling on the floor while keeping the closed container in motion.
  3. Take turns shaking the container, checking the cream every few minutes.
  4. Once the cream has reached the appropriate loft, shake in confectioner’s sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, until it tastes just right.
  5. Dollop on berries or other fruit. Enjoy!
