Ever since I was a child, I’ve had an incurable sweet tooth. If you had asked me what my favorite meal was, I definitely would have said dessert!

Now, as an adult, while I still love sweets, I prefer to eat healthier. Besides, desserts and counting calories don’t exactly go hand-in-hand. That’s where Greek yogurt comes in.

Greek yogurt and regular yogurt makes it easy to create yummy low-cal desserts without having to skimp on flavor. I’ve used it to make popsicles, paletas, salad dressings, marinades, and more. In fact, did you know that each 5.3 oz. serving of Dannon® Oikos® Traditional Greek Yogurt has just 150 calories and 11 g of high-quality protein?!

How to Make Homemade Whipped Cream Recipe

Before you get started on making the lemon meringue pie dessert cups, you need to make the homemade whipping cream.

Light and creamy with just a touch of vanilla flavor, this homemade whipped cream recipe is the best! The next time your drink or dessert is crying out for a topping, grab this recipe … you’ll be so happy you did!

Ingredients for Homemade Whipped Cream Recipe

This super easy, versatile, and delicious homemade whipped cream recipe calls for nothing more than 3 simple ingredients including:

  • Cold heavy cream or heavy whipping cream
  • Sugar to sweeten
  • Vanilla extract

Instructions to Make Homemade Whipped Cream

Making homemade whipped cream is a lot easier than people think. It literally takes just minutes to make. Plus, it tastes SO much better than the store bought kind!

Pro Tip: before getting started, place the mixing bowl and beaters in the freezer for about 10-15 minutes to chill. This helps the whipped cream set up quicker and stay set longer! If you don’t have time to chill the bowl, toss some ice cubes into it, swirl them around for a minute or two, and then dry the bowl.

It’s really as simple as:

  1. Adding all of the ingredients to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment or in a large mixing bowl with handheld mixer
  2. Mixing on low speed at first, then increasing to medium-high speed until stiff peaks form.

Place any leftover whipped cream in an airtight container, and store it in the fridge. It should remain fresh for about 2-3 days.

Instructions to Make No Bake Lemon Meringue Pie Dessert Cups:

  1. Begin by filling the bottom of each mason jar or cup with the crushed graham cracker crumbs. I used about 1 tablespoon per jar.
