In a large bowl, beat whipping cream with a hand mixer with a whisk attachment, or with an immersion blender.
Add powdered sugar once cream begins to thicken slightly. Continue to whisk for another 30 seconds – one minute, then add the Vanilla Paste.
Continue to beat until whipped cream almost reaches stiff peaks. Fold in the Basil.
If cream deflates over time, simply rewhip and enjoy again!
