Coffee Whipped Cream

A warm and flaky pie doesn’t have to be daunting. Aida breaks it down, and rolls out her Perfectly Flaky Pie Crust. That’s the base for the flavour-packed Double Banana Cream Pie. Aida shows how to put a little elbow grease to work, and whips up Coffee Whipped Cream, which also serves as an indulgent topping for her Caffe Shakerato.

Yield: 1 1/2 cups
Prep Time: 8 minutes
Ease of Preparation: easy
Total Preparation Time: 8 Minutes
Total Time: 8 minutes


  • 1 1/2 cups cold heavy cream 
  • 3 tablespoons coffee-flavored liqueur (recommended: Kahlua) 


  1. Place very clean glass or metal bowl and metal whisk in freezer just until cold, about 5 minutes.
  2. When everything is cold, place cream in bowl and begin to whisk until it froths up and starts to thicken, about 1 minute. Whisk vigorously until soft peaks form (the cream will hold a point when the whisk is lifted but will fall back into the bowl almost immediately), about 1 minute.
  3.  Add the liqueur and whisk until stiff peaks just form (the cream stays put on the whisk when it is lifted from the bowl), about 1 minute. Store covered in refrigerator until ready to use.
