It follows the same process as making basic Whipped Cream with just a few added ingredients.

For the quickest, fluffiest whip cream, it’s best to add flavorings after about a minute of whipping, just as the cream is starting to thicken.  While this technique usually produces the best results, there are some flavorings that need to be added at the beginning of the process, eg. chocolate, mocha or herbal essences. You’ll still get great results, it might just take a bit more whipping.

The recipes below are general guidelines only, adjust flavoring and sugar amounts to suit your taste preferences.  Taste at the soft peak stage and add additional ingredients at this point.
