Best Canned Whipped Cream: Whip Up Dessert with the 4 Best

The best canned whipped cream is both light and thick, rich and delicate. It’s sweet without being overpowering. It will highlight a dessert, but it will be even more pleasing to shoot it into your mouth straight from the can—which happens to be how I tasted all the whipped cream for this taste test.

I find whipped cream to be a surprisingly controversial product. Most people either love it or hate it. Personally, I’ve always hated it. It’s like milky air that’s the worst part of a milkshake. It never felt interesting or exciting to me. But after tasting most of the canned whipped cream on the market, I think I may be a convert.

These are the canned whipped creams that I think you should have on hand for ice cream sundaes, Belgian waffles, and pie.

Best of the Best

Clover Sonoma Sweetened Whipped Topping

Clover makes incredibly rich and luxurious dairy products, and their whipped cream is no different. It’s smooth, creamy, and fluffy. Its fresh taste and cute, cow-forward packaging makes me want to spray this onto a bowl of fresh, local strawberries and enjoy them on the porch (I don’t have a porch). If you’re a dairy lover and Clover has yet to make its way into your fridge, give this canned whipped cream a try and I guarantee you’ll be impressed.

Best Extra Creamy

Lucerne Extra Creamy Whipped Topping

After trying both regular and extra creamy canned whipped cream, I’m not sure why you wouldn’t buy the extra creamy. It has a much richer flavor and it coats your mouth in the best way possible. This is one of the sturdier canned whipped creams we tried, and I think it would hold up great on something hearty and hot. I plan to take this home and make a pan of fudgy, warm brownies to accompany it.

Best Classic

Reddi-wip Original Whipped Cream

I was skeptical of Reddi-wip because it’s the face of canned whipped cream. I wasn’t sure if it was popular simply by virtue of being around forever or if it was actually all it’s cracked up to be. Luckily, I discovered that it’s delicious and totally deserves the fame it has! It tastes like the whipped frosting on an ice cream cake. It was the most light and airy canned whipped cream we tried in our taste test. I get the hype, Reddi-wip, and I’m sorry.

Best Budget

Great Value Extra Creamy Dairy Whipped Topping

I feel like a broken record, but I can’t not say it: Great Value products are wonderful! They taste good and are literally, as corny as this sounds, a great value. Their canned whipped cream is just as good as some of our fancier, more expensive favorites and beat out many we tried. If you want a whipped cream that is creamy, cheap, and easily accessible, get a can of Great Value Extra Creamy Dairy Whipped Topping.
