Attention all dessert lovers. This is not a drill.
Nitrous oxide is used to dispense cream from an aerosol can. Stores are currently stocked with cans of whipped topping, but that might change as Christmas inches closer.
A spokesperson for ConAgra told The Boston Globe, it should have a full supply of whipped cream up and running by February.
So what's the answer? Stock up early or make your own!
Creating whipped cream requires only four ingredients:
- 1-quart Mason jar, chilled
- ½ cup chilled heavy cream
- 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
- ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Add all of the ingredients to the jar, close the lid and shake until thickened for 3 to 5 minutes.
And now you have delicious homemade whipped cream!
