How to Make Whipped Cream From Powdered Creamer

By Chance E. Gartneer

Powdered creamers make a satisfying dessert-topper for when you find yourself without a carton of cream, or cooking for the lactose intolerant. Most powdered coffee creamers are non-dairy and come in a wide variety of flavors including mocha, caramel and French vanilla. Powdered milk may also be substituted for powdered creamer in whipped cream recipes with little extra effort.
