Stabilized Whipped Cream Recipe

stabilized whipped cream ingredients
It is important to note if you want your stabilized whipped cream to be white in color, use White Chocolate Pudding Mix. Also, be sure to not use Cook & Serve pudding mix as it will not act the same as the Instant Pudding Mixes. This recipe is delicious on its own or customized with different pudding mixes, flavorings, gel food color, jams, icing fruit, and pastry fillings.

We added lemon curd to this base recipe to make this delicious lemon whipped icing!


  • 4 Cups Whipping Cream, chilled
  • 3.3 oz Instant Pudding Mix
  • Food Color, if desired
  • Flavoring, if desired


In the bowl of a stand-mixer, combine the chilled whipping cream & instant pudding mix.

If you are adding flavoring or coloring, now would be the point to add it. Whipped icings do not accept coloring very well, so expect pastel colors. If you want a vanilla-flavored whipped cream, skip adding the color & flavor.
Mix on low speed for 1 minute to slowly incorporate the pudding mix.
