In honor of National Whipped Cream Day (it's on January 5th), have a dollop of whipped cream with some fresh fruit as a delicious after-dinner treat this weekend!

While ordering your fancy coffee drinks with no whip may be better for your waistline, that doesn't mean whipped cream can't have a place in your diet.

A little bit of whipped cream can go a long way to making a dessert feel more decadent, without too many added calories.

Just stick to a serving size of 2 tablespoons and choose low-fat versions to keep things on the lighter side.

Kick it up a notch with this easy recipes, including two gorgeous and delicious trifles. They may look impressive but they are a breeze to make!
