Vanilla Bean Whip

Sending
(56)
  • Prep-time:
  • Makes 2 cups

This is a light and fluffy cream with lots of vanilla flavor, and you’ll want to top everything with this whip. Cobblers, cakes, your cat—everything! If you don’t have a vanilla bean handy, then use 2 teaspoons of pure vanilla extract instead. But definitely seek out some vanilla beans—you don’t want to miss out on their pure vanilla flavor. This whip isn’t quite as firm as traditional nondairy whipped topping, but you should definitely be able to scoop it out.
