Tart Whipped Cream

Tart Whipped Cream

gives a cheesecake effect

to whatever you’re going to use it with. My favorite is a cherry pie made with tart red cherries. It’s not too bad on a banana cream pie either. If I was going to use this with a cherry pie, I just might use some Almond flavoring instead of vanilla. Experiment to find out what suits you best.

Inspiration for this recipe came from AllRecipes.com

 Step 1:

Chill the beaters and the bowl before beginning for about 10-15 minutes.

Whip 1/4 Cup sour cream, 3/4 Cup cream and 1/2 tsp Vanilla in a mixer on whip setting until peaks form. Caution: Do not over whip as this causes the texture to loosen.

 Step 2:

Add the chosen sweetener. The original recipe calls for 1/3 Cup Confectioners Sugar. Add only enough sweetener to take the edge off, but leave it a bit tart…since that’s what we’re after. Whip just long enough to blend in the sweetener.

Tart Whipped Cream

This whipped topping adds a delicate cheesecake effect to your whipped cream. Sugar is optional. Honey, maple syrup, sorghum or any other sweetener may be substituted. Use only enough sweetener to taste. This is supposed to be a tart flavor. The Heavy Cream and Sour Cream may be used in equal proportions for more tartness.


  • 3/4 C Heavy Cream
  • 1/4 C Sour Cream
  • 1/3 C Confectioners Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla (or desired flavoring)


  1. Chill a small metal bowl and a whisk or beaters for 10 minutes.
  2. Mix cream, sour cream and flavoring.
  3. Whisk or beat on whip setting until peaks form.
  4. Add sugar or sweetener.
  5. Whip again just to form a stiff consistency.


Caution: Don't overbeat. This causes the texture to loosen.
