Like plain chantilly cream (sweetened whipped cream) and strawberry whipped cream, peach whipped cream is wonderful over vanilla ice cream and fruit pies. It’s also a lighter alternative to other cupcake frostings like buttercream frosting or cream cheese frosting.

What Are the Ingredients in Peach Whipped Cream?

Peach whipped cream has just three ingredients:

  • Peaches
  • Heavy whipping cream
  • Sugar

How to Prep Peaches for Peach Whipped Cream

First, you’ll need to prep the peaches. Cut them into small chunks and then put them in the food processor.

How to Make Peach Whipped Cream

Whipped cream is made exactly as the name sounds, by whipping cream (sold in stores as heavy whipping cream). As you whip the cream, air is incorporated and it becomes light and fluffy.

Tip: The heavy whipping cream must be cold in order to make whipped cream. Keep it in the refrigerator until ready to use.

The easiest way to make whipped cream is to use an electric mixer with the whisk attachment.

Whisk on high speed until it holds a peak.

If you don’t have an electric mixer, you can make whipped cream by hand using a whisk and a chilled bowl. Be patient. This process can take five minutes or more and your arms are likely to get tired.

You can also make whipped cream in a blender.

Tip: Once the whipped cream has reached the correct consistency, stop whisking. If you over-whisk the cream, it will start to fall apart. If this happens, whisk in some more heavy whipping cream to get the consistency back to where you want it to be.

When the cream is whipped, whisk in granulated sugar or powdered sugar (either will work) to your taste.

Tip: Don’t add the sugar until you’ve whipped the cream or it will keep the cream from aerating properly.

Finally, gently fold in the pureed peaches. Do this by hand to avoid over whisking.

Can You Use Cool Whip Instead of Whipped Cream?

Yes, you can mix fresh peaches into Cool Whip and make peach Cool Whip. But, once you try fresh peach whipped cream, you won’t go back.

Do You Need to Refrigerate Peach Whipped Cream?

Whipped cream must be kept refrigerated.

For this reason, whipped cream frosting is not the best choice if you are going to a summer picnic where your treats will be kept outdoors.

Tip: If you must serve whipped cream frosting on a dessert that will be sitting out in warm weather for a prolonged time, make stabilized whipped cream using jello.

Can You Use Frozen Peaches to Make Peach Whipped Cream?

You can use frozen peaches to make peach whipped cream.

Defrost the peaches first by leaving them in the refrigerator for at least four hours, then follow the instructions as normal.

Best Ways to Use Peach Whipped Cream

  • You can never go wrong with switching up the frosting on vanilla cupcakes by using peach whipped cream instead.
  • You can also try topping peach muffins with a dollop of peach whipped cream. It makes them even better!
  • Peach whipped cream is also amazing on top of baked peaches!
  • Try it on top of ice cream or cake like my crumb cake .

Why This Recipe Works

Peaches and cream is a classic combination. In fact, if you want a fancy version version of this whipped cream, try my peaches and cream dessert where I fry the peaches in butter and brown sugar before adding them to whipped cream.

Best Tips for Making Peach Whipped Cream

  • Make sure to use cold heavy whipping cream.
  • Always refrigerate whipped cream once made.
  • Use the best tasting peaches you can find. If they don’t taste great on their own, they won’t be great in whipped cream.
