It's time to celebrate National Whipped Cream Day on January 5th! In its early days, whipped cream was made with cream, sugar and flavorings that were whipped together until stiff peaks formed. Today, you can find many variations of whipped cream including vegan versions which use plant-based milks such as cashew or coconut instead of traditional dairy ingredients. So go ahead and indulge in a dollop or two (or three!) of this creamy delight!
