Ingredients you need

Four ingredients are required for making pumpkin flavored whipped cream.

Whipping Cream

Whipping cream or heavy whipping cream is a very thick and fatty form of liquid dairy that makes up the base of any great whipped cream. It is so decadent that about one-third of its makeup is rich in milk fat. The richness in fat combined with vital milk proteins allows this dairy to be whipped to creamy perfection.

You can also opt to make this luscious pumpkin treat with non-dairy heavy cream if preferred. Coconut heavy cream is an excellent substitute for dairy in this recipe.

Powdered Sugar

Powdered sugar is an amazing additive in this whipped cream recipe because it works double duty. Powdered sugar is made with fine sugar and cornstarch, a thickener, so not only does this common sweetener deliver a needed dose of sugar but it also helps the whipped cream to stay stable over time.

Pumpkin Puree

Pumpkin puree is the easiest way to infuse tons of fresh pumpkin flavor into this whipped cream. Plus, it’s available all year long!

Pumpkin puree is made from steamed Dickson pumpkins, which are small, sweet squash with the perfect flavor for baking and treats. It is shelf-stable and ready to use whenever you are.

Don’t sweat it if you have extra after you crack open a can of pumpkin puree. Simply scoop the excess into a silicone ice tray and freeze it for about an hour. After that time you will have cubes of delicious pumpkin that you can transfer to a freezer bag and use one at a time whenever you need a little sweet pumpkin bliss!

Pumpkin Spice

Pumpkin spice is a common dried seasoning blend that is used to add flavor to pies, cobblers, bars, lattes, and so much more! It is made with the flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and more to make the perfect inviting fall aroma and taste.

How To Make Pumpkin-Flavored Whipped Cream From Scratch

How to Store Pumpkin-Flavored Whipped Cream

This deliciously flavored whipped cream can be stored in the fridge for up to 3 days. The thick, creamy mixture can absorb aromas in the fridge, so be sure to keep it in an airtight container with a good sealing lid.

Always be sure to check the cream before using it. If it has any signs of spoilage, like pooling liquid or an unpleasant aroma, just toss it out and make some more!


Electric Mixer – Whipped cream is delicious, but making it by hand can be grueling. Save yourself some sweat by choosing an electric hand mixer. This convenient tool allows you to whip cream in minutes and makes scraping the edge and clean-up a breeze.

With your hand mixer, you will ideally use a metal mixing bowl with high sides. This is because the metal bowl can be chilled nicely, and the high sides will catch any splatter when the whip hits the cream!

Remember to pop the bowl and whip it into the refrigerator or freezer before mixing for an even smoother whip.

Food Processor – One home cook hack for making the perfect whipped cream is to use a food processor or blender. Most home baristas have a food processor or blender already so this method can be very accessible. Simply combine the ingredients as directed in the processor and blend or process until nicely whipped. You can also opt to pre-chill the equipment with this method for even easier whipping.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pumpkin Flavored Whipped Cream

Can I Whip the Cream by Hand?

If you don’t have a mixer or food processor, don’t panic! You can still have this deliciously creamy treat, but it will take a little muscle! This homemade whipped cream can be mixed by hand, but you must whip pretty hard for a while before it reaches that lovely whipped texture, so be ready for a workout. Also, ensure your bowl, whip, and ingredients have been chilled because cold temperatures make whipping easier.

Can I Whip the Whipped Cream Again?

To a point, yes. If you store your Pumpkin Flavored Whipped cream and when you take it out of the fridge, it looks a little runny; you can whip it up for a few seconds to try to introduce some extra air and bring back the fluffy lightness that you love. However, when you whip cream too much, it can separate and lose all its airy, fluffy, deliciousness, so if you do choose to re-whip, only go for a few seconds at a time before checking the texture.
