Such a fun and festive way to celebrate the holidays by adding some homemade FROZEN Whipped Cream to your beverage. 3 flavor combos in this recipe: Classic, Peppermint, and Eggnog

**I’m one of 10 food bloggers, paired with the American Dairy Association, Mideast, Cooking Together to #GiveGallons to those in need this holiday season!**

It’s no secret that I love coffee. I mean, I am pretty sure I have made that pretty loud and clear both here on the blog and on my instagram.

However, I’m also a big fan of hot chocolate, whipped cream, and coffee creamers. My kids share this love of mine by making themselves a hot cocoa and adding coffee creamer for a kick of flavor (peppermint and french vanilla are great additions)!

Whipped cream is also a must. I mean, we all want to sport our milk mustaches this time of year, and homemade whipped cream is the way to go! Dairy is an important part of our lives, to help build strong bones and keep my kids healthy.

However, I’m not always available to make whipped cream at the request of my children. So I opt for the next best thing. Okay, maybe it’s a better thing. Seriously. Pay attention here…

You make your homemade whipped cream topping and FREEZE it. Mind blown you guys. I started doing this years ago and it’s such a fun way to keep this special treat on hand, especially during the holidays!

And the flavor possibilities are endless. I’ve got THREE flavors to share below:

Classic Frozen Whipped Cream Topping to add fun and flavor to your hot beverage. Easy to make and prepare these ahead of time and store in your freezer for later!

You can go with a Classic version of Frozen Whipped Cream Topping:

  • Make your homemade whipped cream. Spread it onto a parchment paper lined 15x10x1-inch baking sheet.
  • Add holiday sprinkles!
  • FREEZE for at least 4 hours or overnight
  • Use small 1-inch cookie cutters to create festive treats. Store in a ziploc bag for future use.

6 Tips for Holiday Cooking with Dairy from Ohio and West Virginia Dairy Farmers:

  1. Cooking with milk is an easy (and delicious!) way to add calcium and other essential nutrients to holiday dishes. Milk also adds a bit of sweetness to recipes and encourages the browning reactions you see in many tasty holiday treats, such as in pastry crusts and cookies.
  2. Yogurt adds creaminess and a bit of tang to recipes. One cup of plain yogurt is packed with 13 grams of protein, is an excellent source of calcium, and a good source of magnesium and potassium.
  3. Use buttermilk to ensure extra tenderness, moistness and flavor when baking. The name “buttermilk” sounds rich, but buttermilk is surprisingly low in fat and calories and is high in protein, and calcium.
  4. Including Greek yogurt in recipes can help you stick to a healthy diet during the holidays! Why? Greek yogurt is high in protein, which helps to keep you fuller longer, and it packs in dairy’s nine essential nutrients. Try it in dips, sauces, soups and other holiday favorites!
  5. Add some cheese, please! When paired with fruits, vegetables and whole grains, cheese may help people eat more of these recommended food groups, including dairy.
  6. Keep those guests who may be lactose intolerant in mind when planning holiday menus! That doesn’t mean eliminating dairy. Most cheeses contain minimal amounts of lactose, including Cheddar, Colby and Swiss. Use lactose-free milk in recipes that call for cow’s milk, and create yogurt-based dishes. The live and active cultures in yogurt help digest lactose.

    What? This is incredibly AWESOME! A couple of questions – does the frozen cream thaw quickly when placed in hot coffee or chocolate? And does it cool the drink off much?

    Thank you for sharing this.
