Waste No Whipped Cream Challenge

by Katy on August 21, 2010 · 9 comments

We made homemade vanilla ice cream the other night, which left us with some leftover whipping cream. And being the waste-avoidance type that I am, I incorprated it into a roux for macaroni and cheese last night.

It turns out that macaraoni and cheese made with whipping cream is rather delicous.

Probably not advisable to repeat this meal. That is, unless I want Jamie Oliver showing up on our doorstep.

At least there were no leftovers.

In our house whipped cream can BE a meal, or dessert if the kids are asleep!

if the cream wasn’t whipped, it isn’t whipped cream…. it’s just heavy cream. Which is a pretty normal addition to a mac and cheese recipe. Not the healthiest, but delicious I’m sure! Whipping cream and heavy cream are the same thing 🙂

The container said “heavy whipping cream.” It had not been whipped though.

I will join your Waste No Whipped Cream Challenge. I am sure this will garner you a certain amount of media attention. I pledge to waste no whipped cream for the next 30 days.

Jessie, I’ll join you and Katy on that one! No whipped cream, whipping cream, or heavy cream will go to waste around here.

I lost 150lbs on Atkins about ten years ago. I LOVE heavy whipping cream. I ate about a quart a day whipped up with splenda, or put into coffee. And my cholesterol was the lowest it ever was while I did that almost constant fat-fast. I would never agree that it is non-healthy. Perhaps it doesn’t give a lot of vitamins, but give me cream over bread or other high carb foods any day.

We use evaporated milk in our mac and cheese to give it a rich flavor and sometimes add in some sour cream and cream cheese as well! Low calorie…No…delicious….Yes!

Are you saying you DON’T want Jamie Oliver on your doorstep?

Not if he’s there to shame me.
