Crème Fraîche Whipped Cream

Whipped cream plain and simple is a beautiful thing. But folded into lightly sweetened crème fraîche? It will up your dessert game when spooned onto everything from piles of fresh berries to Thanksgiving pies. It also has a flavorful tang, velvety texture, and more sturdiness than whipped cream alone. I dare you not to lick the bowl.

  • 1/3 cup crème fraîche , such as Bellwether Farms
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the crème fraîche, sugar, and vanilla until smooth.
  2. In a separate large bowl, whip the cream until it reaches stiff peaks.
  3. Add the crème fraîche to the bowl with the whipped cream. Use a rubber spatula to gently fold them together until smooth and blended.
  4. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate until ready to use. If refrigerated, whisk gently a few times before serving. Ideally served within a day or two, but will keep for several days.
