You guys, this is heaven in a form of food! I know, I know, nothing beats chocolate, but this is the next best thing ever!

I feel slightly silly gushing over simple whipped cream. But let me tell ya, this is not just a regular whipped cream here. This is YOGURT whipped cream. Amazingly light and fluffy, slightly sweet and tangy!

Thick Greek yogurt is the magic touch that gives this regular whipped cream that amazing tang and character. Oh my gosh, I’d bath in this thing! It’s so good!

And did I tell you how versatile it is? You can add whatever flavoring you want. I’ve tried Grand Marnier with orange zest (I die!), Amaretto (nutty and delicious!), almond extract, and good ol’ vanilla extract! That’s not all. Use any flavored greek yogurt and BOOM!

Need some ideas to pair this heaven? How about an angel food cake or balsamic strawberries? Coffee cake, waffles, pancakes, CREPES (the best!)… I can go on and on naming everything I’d paired this fluff with for the last few weeks. Can you tell I’m obsessed?? 😉

Fluffy, light, sweet and tangy, this incredibly versatile yogurt whipped cream will be your favorite topping for pies, cakes, and pancakes! You need this in your life.

Yield: About 2 cups

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup (120ml) heavy whipping cream
  • 2-3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 cup (80gr) Greek yogurt* (plain, or flavored)

Directions:

  1. In a mixing bowl with whisk attachment, whip the heavy cream with sugar until hard peaks form. Add the yogurt and vanilla extract and mix until smooth.

*Don’t substitute regular yogurt for Greek yogurt, or the whipped cream will get runny.

  • 1 tablespoon Amaretto (Italian almond liquor)
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract

  1. I have done this before and do love it! I will be using it on pavlova for a group. How much ahead of serving can I make this yogurt whipped cream?

  2. Could I sub Greek yogurt for sour cream?

    • My apologies I meant sub sour cream for Greek yogurt!

      • Hi, Jaime. I think you can, but I’m not exactly sure if the result will be the same. But since both greek yogurt and sour cream are tangy, it might work. Another thing to note, greek yogurt is slightly firmer, so if you use sour cream, the whipped cream might be a little on a loose side. Sorry for not being able provide better answer.

  3. Does the yogurt need to be full fat or can it be fat free? 

  4. I never thought to do anything like this, but what a great idea! Definitely trying it! 

  5. I am a big fan of whipped cream and yogurt so this combination looks amazing. Thanks so much.

  6. This looks delicious!  Now I can eat twice as much pie with this on top and not feel guilty.  Thank you!!

  7. Yum! As much as I cook with Greek yogurt, it never occurred to me to add it to whipped cream. This is such a brilliant idea!

  8. This looks amazing.  I think I could definitely use this on just about everything. Pinned!

  9. OMG – I feel like I’ve just found gold – I had no idea !!!
    Thanks so much for sharing – pinning immediately !

  10. One of the things I absolutely love about Greek yogurt is its versatility. I’ve made lots of things with it, but whipped cream isn’t one of them… but it will be soon!

  11. I always have Greek yogurt on hand and I’m always baking.  Perfect reason I believe to make this!

  12. Now that I just got a new Kitchen Aid stand mixer, I was able to prepare this recipe.  Wow!  No more commercial whip creams in my household!  The whipped cream did not last long enough for photos!

  13. Love this lightened up whipped cream- a teaspoon of amaretto sounds delightful with this 🙂
