Stable Whipped Cream is so astounding that I honestly don’t miss the sugar! It’s easy, quick to make, and tastes great on desserts, in hot winter mugs, or even in simple bowls of fruit.

Stable Whipped Cream

The best part of this Stable Whipped Cream is that it stays “stable” for all of your decorative desserts! I learned the hard way that all whipped cream is not created equal. Unless the cream has a stabilizer, in this case gelatin, it will not mold or hold its shape for long. This recipe will allow you to pipe the cream into delicate and decorative puffs without losing shape.

How can sugar-free taste so sweet?

Because this recipe is a sugar-free recipe, we are using a sugar-substitute. My substitute of choice is a yummy natural sweetener called “Swerve” that is made from select fruits and starchy root vegetables. So, maybe that last part doesn’t sound like it would be tasty in a pie, but I promise you will never know you’re eating veggies!

Swerve can usually be found in the organic aisle of your grocery store.

How to make Sugar-free Stable Whipped Cream

Decorating pies can be quite a struggle if the whipped cream is soft and begins to lose its shape before you have the chance to serve those slices to your guests. With only a few ingredients you can make your own firm (stable) whipped cream that will hold up from pie plate to dessert plate.

Recipe Preparation

  • In a small bowl, combine unflavored gelatin and cold water. Allow mixture to sit until it begins to thicken. This will only take a few minutes.
  • Add thickened gelatin to a small saucepan over low heat and stir until gelatin dissolves. Remove from heat and allow to cool, but DO NOT LET IT SET, or there will be small flavorless gelatin chunks blended throughout your whipped cream.
