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.

Being single and thrifty, I buy the large tub of whipping cream. By the time I get home, it is slightly soft. I use an ice cream scoop to place one scoop of cream into several plastic snack-size baggies and store them in the fridge/freezer. The large tub goes to the deep freeze for later use. No more thawing the large tub just to get one serving. The scoop size fits perfectly on a slice of pie, a dish of berries, a piece of cake and a dish of pudding.

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.

Never put aerosol cans in the freezer.

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!!
