Homemade Sugar Free Chocolate Whipped Cream

So you’ve given up sugar, but you still have a craving for a little sweetness sometimes. This whipped cream hits that sweet spot! Enjoy it as a topping on my banting donuts, add it to your coffee, freeze spoonfuls for a chilled treat, spread on pumpkin bread, or snack on a spoonful as is! Do be careful with artificial sweeteners though, they mimic sugar to the chemicals in your brain, and your brain THINKS it has had sugar. Too much artificial sweetener can make you start sugar detox all over again from the beginning.  Just remember, everything in MODERATION! 🙂

Homemade Sugar Free Chocolate Whipped Cream (and Regular Whipped Cream)

1 cup heavy whipping cream (in a 2 cup glass measuring cup or a wide mouthed Ball jar)
2 Tbsp. Xylitol
1/2 Tsp. Vanilla Extract
2 Tsp. Hersheys Cocoa Powder*

Using an electric mixer, simply mix on high until the cream gets really thick.
Refrigerate. Serve and Enjoy!

*For regular whipped cream, just omit the Hersheys Cocoa Powder.

Enter….the SOLUTION!  Continue reading
