I will be honest, when I first saw the question I was a little perplexed. Making whipped cream is super simple, so why mess with is?

Of course whipping cream và adding a little sugar & vanilla is pretty straightforward. The only real worry is not over whipping the cream and turning it into butter.

You can also easily flavor it & make mocha whipped cream. Or you can make really stable cream cheese whipped cream and maple whipped cream is perfect for so many pies, waffles và pancakes.

But the more I thought about it, the more I was intrigued. I always have a can of sweetened condensed milk in the pantry, whereas cream may require a special trip khổng lồ the grocery store.

Giving it a try

So I figured it was worth a try. I did a little research on Google as you would.

I found only a couple of resources saying you could. The lack of information made me skeptical.


To be worth my salt as a scientist, sweet tooth and food blogger I had to soldier on despite my doubts. Both sites had basically the same instructions, making determining what method khổng lồ try pretty cut và dry.

In case it worked fabulously, I mix up the camera và shot a đoạn phim of my attempt. You never know when you might catch magic on film!

The Process

So I emptied the can of sweetened condensed milk into the mixer bowl. Then I put the bowl, milk, và beater all into the deep freezer for a half hour.

The sweetened condensed milk gets really thick và sticky. It actually felt promising for a minute.

All that was left to vì is whip a bunch of air into it. It got a paler màu sắc as air was incorporated.

It got more voluminous and seemed like it might actually work. I checked the consistency after a minute, then two minutes, then five minutes.

While the texture and volume changed, it never quite made it to whipped cream. Unfortunately I would have khổng lồ say it doesn’t work.

If you have had success with turning sweetened condensed milk into whipped cream, tell me what I’m doing wrong. I would love lớn give it a go và have success!
