Freezing Whipped Cream

If you have more whipped cream than you can use right away, freezing is a great way to store it for use later. This is a guide about freezing whipped cream.

When I buy whipping cream, I buy it on sale. Then I pour it into ice cube trays and freeze. Once frozen I put the cubes in ziplock bags in the freezer. A cube is about 2 Tablespoons. It's great when you only need a couple tablespoons in a recipe.

I always wondered if you could freeze whipping cream; I thought that you probably could, but never researched it to see for sure. There's no telling how many cartons that I've had to throw away because of expiration. Freezing it in ice cube trays is a great idea, because lots of times you only need a little. Thanks for posting.

I do the same thing with fresh lemons. Sqeeze the juice into a pitcher. Pour into ice cube trays & freeze. Then pop into ziplock bags.

With tomato paste I measure out 1 T portions onto squares of plastic wrap. Twist closed & pop the individual portions into a zip lock.

I didn't think you could freeze fresh cream so have never tried, but I will now as it's Christmas in a few days. I use more at this festive time. So thank you for sharing this. Helen x

Can it be whipped after being frozen?

Hi, Are you talking about the liquid whipping cream, or when it is solid? -- ie whipped in the can. Can you whip it after it defrosts? This sounds like a great idea - especially when I bought too many to make ice cream with and run out of time. Thanks and looking forward to the answer. D

I never tried to freeze whipping cream because I buy 'heavy' cream in the pint size containers. I know it's mostly animal fat, so how could it freeze well? Doesn't it separate when it's thawed? If so, can it still be whipped?

Drop large spoonfuls of leftover whipped cream on a wax paper lined cookie sheet and freeze. Once frozen individually, store them in a freezer bag. You can use them on desserts, coffee, or hot chocolate. Use within two weeks.

Can I freeze cans of whipped cream? I bought some at Sam's club and the package contained 3 cans; I only needed one. What can I do with the rest of the whipped cream?

I don't recommend freezing aerosol cans, or any can for that matter. The contents expand when frozen and the can may burst. Use the whipped cream or give it away.

I agree with OliveOyl, the cans may explode in the freezer. If you can't use them by expiration date, give them away.

You can place a piece of wax paper on a cookie sheet; then put dollops of the whipped cream from the can on the paper and place in freezer. Once frozen, the mounds of whipped cream can be placed in a zip-lock freezer bag for future use.

I've found that the shelf life is extended quite a bit on canned whip cream. The idea of small dollops on waxed paper and freezing sounds like an idea worth trying. One of the grand daughters would be ecstatic to know she could indulge frequently. ha ha.

I have a can of real whipped cream in the fridge and mine does not have an expiration date. Just a best used by which is not the same thing as a expiration date. Mine says 7/21/10. Yeah I know that is old but I just tried it and it was perfectly fine in every way. So yes it does have a long shelf life.

I just found that my husband put the 3 cans I bought in the freezer downstairs instead of the fridge part. I put them down in the fridge but wonder if I should just throw them out. I haven't heard any explosions yet and I haven't looked!!
