This whipped cream recipe is so easy and perfect for Thermomix beginners that want something simple to make in their new kitchen gadget.
Whipped Cream Thermomix
When I mentioned to someone that I had just bought a Thermomix, they told me that I must use it to make whipped cream with.
Until then I had never considered making my own whipped cream and I have always used squirty cream instead.
But I love trying new things and sent Dominic down to Tesco’s to buy us some double cream so that we can transform it into whipped cream and make it over the kid’s favourite dessert.
The kids love the same dessert that my mum made when I was growing up. She would serve it as a second dessert at Sunday dinners alongside a warm apple pie and I am still a big kid and love it.
It was always a layer of jelly, then a layer of Angel Delight (calling all Angel Delight fans!) followed by squirty cream. Then to make it even more amazing a Cadbury’s flake would be sprinkled on top and sometimes some 100’s and 1000’s would be added too.
The layers of the dessert would look like this:
So instead of the squirty cream, which is literally whipped style cream in an aerosol, we had Thermomix whipped cream on top instead and it was amazing.
Today, I want to share with you my new love for whipped cream using the Thermomix and how you can use it in many, many cream recipes.

Is Double Cream Thickened Cream?
No, double cream and thickened cream are a little different from one another. But the good news, is that you can use either double cream or thickened cream to make whipped cream in the Thermomix.
But first back to the comparison. Double cream is the same as heavy cream in the US. Whilst thickened cream is the same as half and half in the US or single cream in the UK, just with an added thickening agent.
This is great for my Aussie friends, because it means you can use the lower calorie thickened cream and get the same results.
Can Thickened Cream Be Whipped?
Yes, you can make thickened cream with the Thermomix butterfly whisk. Its very easy to do and you will love how well it whips.
You can also transform double cream into whipped cream in the Thermomix too.
Can You Whip Light Cream?
Yes, you can whip some light creams. The idea though is a mix of ratios rather than just whipping light cream on its own.
Instead of just whipping thickened cream or heavy cream or double cream. You mix it up and whip thickened cream with some Greek yoghurt.
You then have great whipped cream and have reduced the amount of thick cream used.
Can You Over Whip Cream?
Yes, it is very easy to over whip cream. Over whipped cream happens when you are whipping the cream in the Thermomix at too high of a speed and for too long.
By sticking to a lower speed in this Thermomix whipped cream recipe we stop this from happening.
Thermomix Recipe #3
As I write this, the Thermomix is my latest kitchen gadget. It joins my air fryer, instant pot pressure cooker, slow cooker, pie maker, and soup maker, plus many others and I am looking forward to seeing how the Thermomix makes cooking even easier.
For fun I am sharing with you behind the scenes Thermomix recipes of the first 30 things I made with my new kitchen toy.
That way you can see if the Thermomix is for you and if these recipes will fit in what you like to make.
Today’s Thermomix Whipped Cream is Thermomix recipe #3. And don’t forget to catch up with Thermomix Choc Chip Cookies (recipe #1) and Thermomix Buttercream (recipe #2).
My thoughts on Thermomix Whipping Cream:
We used the butterfly whisk – The Thermomix butterfly whisk is an extra attachment that you need to add onto your mixing blade and makes for great whipped cream. So easy to add and you will love it for recipes like this.
Overnight Magic – We wanted to see how the whipped cream performed after it was made in the Thermomix. We left it in the fridge overnight and was amazed by how good it looked the next day.
I love the variety – You can make sugar free whipped cream or add in some sugar or flavouring, depending on what you are using it for. You can even add in a little jam to really give it extra flavour.
Its simple when you get the right cream – I find that its one of those dairy recipes, when you don’t always understand what cream to use and this puts you off. Master which cream to use and it will become a favourite recipe.
But most importantly, would I recommend making whipped cream in the Thermomix? Yes, I would. You can just set and forget and let the Thermomix do the hard work. Then it will work well for a lot of different desserts.

Whipping Cream Thermomix Ingredients
Cream – You can use thickened cream, double cream, thick pouring cream, or heavy cream in this recipe.
Sugar – Whipped cream can be rather bland if you don’t add any sugar to it. I recommend with a large double cream that you add 2Tbsp caster sugar.
Flavour – Then for extra flavour its about personal choice of what you are using your Thermomix cream for. For example, if it was for a St Paddy’s Day dessert you can add green food colouring to it and a little peppermint extract.
Then for the kitchen gadgets that we have used in this Thermomix whipping cream recipe it has just been our TM6 and its wonderful for many types of baking recipes.
Plus, we recommend you head over to our Thermomix recipes category as we will be adding Thermomix recipes as we try new ones for you.
How To Whip Thickened Cream?
- Attach. Add to your Thermomix the butterfly whisk attachment.
- Pour. Next pour in your cream.
- Whip. Place the lid on the Thermomix and mix for 2 minutes.
- Add. Next add in any extras you had planned. Such as caster sugar, vanilla essence, food colouring etc.
- Mix. Then return to mixing for a further 1 minute.
- Finish. You now have whipped cream in the Thermomix, and you can now use it for cakes, with scones, over Angel Delight or whatever your favourite use for it is.
And I am sure you can see now how easy it is to make perfectly whipped cream with the Thermomix. And how you can do the same in your kitchen.
What Thermomix Settings Do You Use?
The easiest way to do the whipped cream in your Thermomix is to use the manual settings.
Click on the manual screen and just set the time and the speed.
We found that speed 3 was ideal for whipped cream as it stopped it from being over whipped and produced a beautiful fluffy cream.
I also choose to add the vanilla after 2 minutes because then I can check on the whipped cream and avoid over whipping.
What To Make With Thickened Cream?
I am all for using the thickened cream in all the places I would usually add squirty cream.
Whipped Cream For Scones – Next time you are making our air fryer scones, then add some whipped cream instead of squirty cream.
Whipped Cream For Frosting – What I also did was experiment and put the thickened cream to whipped cream into my piping bag and attached the nozzle. As you can see from the picture below it made perfect frosting cream:
But most of all (like mentioned above) I love the whipped cream for over angel delight for a fun dessert for the kids.
How Long To Whip Thickened Cream?
We transformed double cream to whipped cream in just short of 3 minutes. I even looked at it in amazement that it was so quick compared to other methods.
Start keeping an eye on your whipped cream from 2.5 minutes.
