Cream Cheese Whipped Cream

Thanks for sharing!

Cream cheese and whipped cream combine for the best of both worlds.  It is fluffy and light like whipped cream with just a bit of that cream cheese tang and extra stability. This stuff is amazing!

Good morning!  I hope you weekend has been fabulous.  Ours has been busy, but so much fun.  My Maw-Maw and Paw-Paw are in town visiting, so there has been family gathering after family gathering.  So we are fat, happy and a little bit tired this morning.

Friday we had dinner at K.C. and Collin’s.  They did a great job of hosting.  We dubbed it “Fish Friday.”

They had a variety seafood out for appetizers along with cheese, crackers and a crab ragoon dip.  Then there were two kinds of salmon for dinner and yummy veggies.

Collin even made a mango-peach smoothie for everyone.  My little brothers really are excellent cooks and put on a great dinner.  MiMi made an ice cream sandwich cake for dessert, which was a pre-birthday surprise for Chloe.

Yesterday we celebrated Chloe’s birthday.  Jax and I called her to see if she wanted to go to the park with us in the morning.

Slice of cake with fresh strawberries, blueberries and a piped swirl of cream cheese whipped cream.

Next thing we knew, the whole crew met us there!  Jax had fun showing us the ropes on the playground.  Then we had dinner and yard games and MiMi and Pops’.

Chloe requested chicken, bacon alfredo roll-ups for her birthday dinner.  They were delicious.  I was in charge of dessert, Chloe has been asking for the brownie cheesecake with mocha whipped cream and it was as much of a hit the second time around as it was the first!

The night ended with a water war of epic proportions. We had a blast!

None of that really has anything to do with this recipe, other than it explains why it went up late.  By now we all know that I am a fanatic when it comes to frosting and whipped cream.

I love trying new things.  I have been enjoying playing with different flavors of whipped cream lately.  The cocoa whipped cream is easy and delicious and the mocha whipped cream is to die for.  This one is fun too!

There is enough cream cheese in it to give it that slight tang you might expect, but it gives the whipped cream some extra stability and makes it fun to pipe!

I served wit alongside a cake with some berries, but it would be great just with berries in a bowl and would take your strawberry shortcake to the next level!  You just have to give it a try!

Tips for making cream cheese whipped cream:

  • Make sure the cream cheese is super smooth before you add the cream.  You’ll want to scrape the bowl and the beater a couple of times to make sure there isn’t any clumps hiding anywhere.
  • Drizzle the cream in slowly.  This allows it to incorporate as you go.
  • Whip it real good (ha!) after you add the cream.  It should be really light and fluffy and hold a stiff peaks.

Uses for cream cheese whipped cream:

  • Everything!
  • Cream cheese whipped cream can be spooned into shortcakes, on top of pancakes or waffles too.
  • It pipes well for flourishes, borders and more.
  • I love piping some on top of no bake cheesecakes, key lime pies and more for added flare.

Cream Cheese Whipped Cream

This is heaven, I’m pretty sure! Cream cheese flavor and as light and fluffy as whipped cream. The best of both worlds from just a few simple ingredients.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes


  • 8 oz. cream cheese, slightly softened
  • 2-6 Tablespoons sugar (amount depends on how sweet you like it, I tend to not make my whipped cream too sweet)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract or bean paste
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream, super cold


  1. For the best results, put your cream in the freezer for just a few minutes while your gather your ingredients and beat the cream cheese.
  2. It is best if your cream cheese is still at least cool when you get started, but you want it to be soft enough that your mixer can get it beaten smooth. Beat together the sugar, vanilla and cream cheese until smooth.
  3. With the mixer still running on medium, drizzle in the cream. Once it is all incorporated into the cream cheese and turn the mixer on high and whip until stiff peaks form.
  4. Pipe or spoon onto your dessert, store leftover in the refrigerator.

Cream cheese whipped cream is more stable than plain whipped cream, plus it has a little bit of cream cheese tang. This is the perfect way to top so many desserts including pumpkin pie, cheesecakes, pound cakes and more!

Can I freeze this cream cheese whip cream on decorated cupcakes and then thaw….will they hold their shape? When thawed.

Thanks, Kim

I haven't tried that. It would be worth a try, but it would make me nervous to tell you to do it for something important since I haven't done it. Since it only takes a couple of minutes to make, I usually just make it when I need it. Though it holds it's shape really well for several days when I use it to pipe decorations on other desserts, so I would be inclined to think it would work.

I love cream cheese icing, but there are times when a dessert calls for a lighter touch. This is the perfect mix of fluffy and cream cheesy! Yeah! Now I'm in the mood for pound cake and berries, topped off with this delish concoction! YUM!
