How long will it take for stiff peaks to form in the whipped cream?

It may take quite a few minutes to get the whipping cream to the point where stiff peaks have formed. It usually takes me 8-10 minutes to get to the right consistency.

Tips and Tricks for Making Cinnamon Whipped Cream

  • For best results, make sure that the heavy cream is as cold as possible before whipping. Take it out of the fridge just when you are ready to start whipping.
  • If possible, use a glass or metal mixing bowl and chill in the fridge or freezer for at least 15 minutes before you start whipping the cream to get the best texture and the most volume out of your whipped cream.

Variations of Cinnamon Whipped Cream

  • Not keen on cinnamon, no problem use nutmeg instead.
  • Don’t have honey on hand, use all maple syrup.
  • Pour a touch of food coloring to change up the color.
  • Add sprinkles or other cake decorations to make the whipped cream more festive.
  • Mix in a teaspoon of instant espresso powder.

How To Store Cinnamon Whipped Cream

Cinnamon whipped cream will keep in the fridge for a few days but it will get a bit droopy so try to use it up as soon as possible. If you don’t think you’ll use all of it at once just make half a batch. It tastes way better freshly made.

How many calories does cinnamon have?

Cinnamon is relatively low in calories with just 6 per teaspoon.

Is cinnamon spicy?

Cinnamon is not spicy it has more of a sweet flavor profile.

Can dogs have cinnamon?

Cinnamon is okay for dogs to consume though I don’t suggest you go feeding your dog this cinnamon whipped cream.

What makes whipped cream fluffy?

The act of whisking until stiff peaks form allows air between the fat droplets so the cream becomes fluffy and doubles in size.

Why won’t my whipped cream get fluffy?

If you are having a hard time getting your whipped cream to expand and get a fluffy texture it could be because it was not cold enough.

Can I use jarred whipped cream in this cinnamon whipped cream recipe?

You can use jarred whipped cream and add the other ingredients to it but I want you to know there is nothing quite like the taste of fresh whipped cream. You most likely will not get the same texture either.

I don’t have whipped cream on hand, can I use a heavy cream?

Unfortunately, you can only use whipped cream in this recipe. You won’t be able to whip up the heavy cream as it does not have a high enough fat content.

Can you put this whipped topping on a hot beverage?

Yes, you absolutely can! In fact, I make it for my Peppermint Hot Chocolate all the time. If you aren’t a fan of peppermint you can easily make this a cinnamon cocoa drink by swapping the peppermint for cinnamon. Beware that it will melt fast so drink quickly.

Can I use sugar instead of honey and maple syrup?

Sugar will definitely sweeten up the whipped cream but you definitely won’t be the same flavor.
