That awkward moment when you’re a closet fannibal and your mom says, “Rude” and your immediate response is, “Eat the rude!”
DIY Flavored Whipped Creams
This may sound like a silly thing to want to make or need instructions for. How hard can making whipped cream be or why make it at all when you can just buy it at the supermarket?
But what if you want something creative that you can’t buy at the supermarket? What if you want a vegan recipe for whipped cream? or a whipped cream with alcohol, or with oreos, or coffee, or chocolate? or an organic version? Or a recipe with a holiday theme like for Christmas or fall?
You can make homemade whipped cream using either a stand mixer with whisk attachment, a hand whisk, your hand with a fork at 100 miles an hour, or a whipping siphon/dispenser
There are only a few components to worry about when making whipped cream with a whipping siphon.
Traditionally for whipped cream you use heavy cream or whipping cream. However, with some of the modernist ingredients you can actually make delicious whipped creams using lower fat milks. We will cover them in a separate article so for now we will focus on using heavy or whipping creams.
The key to a good whipped cream is to make sure it stays stable. A runny whipped cream isn’t nearly as tasty as one with nice soft peaks. In traditional whipped creams you can add sugar, either table sugar or confectioners sugar, which also contains corn starch. For modernist whipped creams you can also use xanthan gum, gelatin, or carrageenan, among several other stabilizers.
Plain whipped cream can be excellent but sometimes some added flavor is great. This can be anything from the usual ingredients like vanilla or lemon juice to to more exotic like key lime juice, or even savory flavorings like curry or chile peppers.
