Chai Spiced Whipped Cream

Chai Spiced Whipped Cream Recipe

This chai whipped cream is intended as a perfect little wowzer of a dollop atop these banana bread muffins. And it works quite admirably in this function. Although ever since we first succumbed to this incredibly easy and exquisitely spiced embellishment, we’ve been mulling over other destinations for it seeing as it would be a shame to contain its usage to any singular incarnation. You’ll find our working list of what we also want to slather it on in the LC Note below and in the Testers Choice comments following the recipe.–Renee Schettler Rossi

Dolloped atop pumpkin pie

Slathered on graham crackers
Sandwiched between puffy cookies as a fancy schmancy whoopee pie
Consumed by the spoonful as you stand at the fridge sometime past midnight

This chai spiced whipped cream...wowzers! This spiced cream contains loads of potential for future applications. You will dream about what else you could slather this onto or stir it into—graham crackers, ice cream, pie, cake, cookies, coffee or tea, doughnuts, waffles, the possibilities go on and on. I did cut the sugar in half for the whipped cream, as I personally don't like things overly sweet.

I bet you could serve this chai spiced whipped cream with pumpkin pie. I also think you could use pumpkin pie spice as a sub for all the individual spices.

This chai whipped cream would be fabulous slathered on spice cake, pumpkin pie, or just a spoon.

    So scrumptious! I made the banana muffins to top with the spiced whipped cream, wow! This morning I made French toast and used it on top instead of butter. Again, I say, wow! Thanks for sharing such a delightful and simple recipe!
