Lemon whipped cream is an easy and quick recipe to decorate your favorite desserts. Unlike plain whipped cream, this sweet recipe has a light and zesty flavor. Creamy and smooth, lemon whipped cream calls for only four ingredients — whipped cream, lemon zest, sugar and lemon juice. Use this tangy lemon whipped cream to enhance even more the flavor of your pies, pancakes or shortcakes, especially if lemon-based.
How to make Lemon Whipped Cream
Combine the whipped cream, lemon zest, sugar and lemon juice in a bowl.
Beat with an electric mixer until it forms soft and firm peaks.
You can store the lemon whipped cream in the refrigerator for up to 4 hours. Whip again before serving or decorating.
To prevent the lemon juice from curdling the whipped cream, make sure the peaks are soft but firm.
Lemon whipped cream is also perfect to decorate a cake topped with lemon curd.
