National Whipped Cream Day Date in the current year: January 5, 2024

National Whipped Cream Day Whipped cream is that little something that makes desserts and drinks taste better. If you like it, you should totally celebrate National Whipped Cream Day on January 5.

According to some sources, National Whipped Cream Day is celebrated on January 5 to commemorate the birthday of Aaron Lapin, the inventor of whipped cream in aerosol containers (Reddi-Wip). The first whipped cream in cans was sold in 1948 in St. Louis by milkmen and since then has gained immense popularity since using aerosol whipped cream is so much easier when whipping it by yourself.

The first whipped cream recipes date back to the 16th century, when it was called “milk snow” or “snow cream” in France and Italy. According to these recipes, naturally separated cream was whipped with willow or rush branches and then skimmed off and drained to separate the foam. The process was very laborious, and it took hours to prepare whipped cream.

No matter what kind of whipped cream you like (from an aerosol can or whisked by hand), it is one of those little delights that deserve our recognition. National Whipped Cream Day provides a perfect excuse to add a generous portion of whipped cream on top of your sweet treat.
