Chantilly Cream

Chantilly cream, also known as Créme Chantilly is a sweetened vanilla-flavored whipped cream. We love it in cream puffs, adorning fresh berries and floating on hot chocolate! It’s an easy way (super easy way) to add extra flavor, texture, and appeal to nearly any dish.

  • 1 cup (240 grams) heavy whipping cream chilled
  • 2 Tablespoons confectioners’ sugar powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon real vanilla extract


  1. Chill a glass or metal mixing bowl 

  2. Lightly beat the cream in a large chilled bowl with a large balloon whisk, or in an electric beater, until it begins to thicken.

  3. Add the sugar and vanilla extract and continue to beat until the cream is very stiff and stands in firm peaks on the beater when it is lifted from the bowl.

Recipe Notes

  • Best used fresh but can be kept in the refrigerator 2-3 days. 
  • If you have leftovers, place dollops onto a piece of wax paper and freeze. Once frozen through, toss into a freezer bag. Can be safely stored up to 3 months.
