Could i make this with other flavors?
You most definitely could.
So we used strawberry yogurt and cut up some fresh strawberries for this one, but we also like orange yogurt (I think that Yoplait has one called Orange Creme?) and we add canned mandarin oranges and pineapple.
We have also used raspberry yogurt and used fresh (or frozen) raspberries.
My husband likes when we do banana cream. I use banana yogurt and add fresh banana slices, and sprinkle crushed vanilla wafers on top as a garnish.
You could even use this as a dip and dip graham crackers or vanilla wafers in it.
how to make your own whipped cream
Making your own whipped cream is the best decision you could ever make in life. It is so fresh, delicious, and has this taste, that you can’t buy at the grocery store in a plastic container.
It is so thick and creamy, you may never buy the store bought whipped cream again. Then again, I still do, because it’s so easy to just grab when you are in a hurry.
It only requires two ingredients that are inexpensive. This is seriously so easy to make.
Here is how you make homemade whipped cream:
Step 1: Using a cold or room temperature bowl, (you don’t want it fresh out of the dishwasher because the heat will play with the whipping cream and make it a weird texture) add 2 tablespoons of sugar and 1 cup of whipping cream.
Step 2: With a hand mixer, or whisk (we recommend hand mixer, but a whisk will work), whisk the two ingredients together until fully combined.
Step 3: Continue to beat and whisk until the mixture becomes thick, and you can make peaks with it.
Step 4: Store in an airtight container until ready to use. We recommend using within just a few days of making it.
