Have you ever tried to make a dessert using whipped cream that lost it’s shape in no time flat?

The secret ingredient – skimmed milk powder (aka nonfat powdered milk or Nonfat Instant Dry Milk).
I’ve seen a lot of whipped cream recipes that use gelatin, non dairy creamers and commercial cream stabilizers, but I find the best way to make whipped cream that tastes natural and keeps it’s creamy texture without falling flat is ordinary skimmed milk powder (If you can’t find it in your supermarket, you can buy it here on Amazon).

This Stabilized Whipped Cream Recipe can be used for Whipped cream frosting, pastry fillings, and much more.
To make it, I add the skimmed milk powder, vanilla, and powdered sugar to the whipping cream and whip until thick.
You should be able to run a butter knife through it with a well that holds its shape without any cream running into it.
When removing the blade, you should be able to tip slightly it over the bowl with no whipped cream falling off the blade.
