Whipped cream is a wonderful topping or filling that can be used in a variety of savory dishes and desserts. There are easy ways you can make homemade whipped cream yourself. You may be surprised at how quick and simple it is to make your own creamy whipped topping by yourself.
If you are looking for a way to level up your home-cooked dishes and meals, making your own whipped cream may be the way to do it! This blog post will guide you through four easy ways to make your own whipped cream in your kitchen.
A whisk attachment on a stand mixer will create light and fluffy whipped cream. The attachment will incorporate air into the cram fairly quickly and make it light and airy. Start with the lowest speed while adding vanilla or confectioner’s sugar to help the cream become foamy and sweet. Use higher speeds slowly until you see stiff peaks form. After this, you can lower the speed until you come up with the consistency you are looking for. This is a good kitchen appliance to use if you need large batches of whipped cream quickly.
Blenders will yield the quickest and most stable result because they can incorporate air into the cream in the quickest way possible. Start at the lowest possible speed while incorporating the sugar or other sweetener to thicken up the cream. You can have your whipped cream done and ready in as little as 30 seconds, however, you need to closely monitor your blender to make sure that the cream does not get over-mixed.
Food processors can aerate cream in under a minute. Put all your ingredients into the food processor and wait for stiff peaks to form. The downside to this fairly quick method is that the whipped cream will not hold its structure well if it is kept until the following day. In comparison to using a blender, this is a quick and easy way to make whipped cream but if you plan to use the cream the next day, using a blender is a better option.
Lastly, you can do it the old-fashioned way, by mixing the cream and sweeteners in a bowl by hand. Use a whisk and mix air into the cream until you see peaks form. Continue whisking until you are happy with the consistency. This method may be slower than the others and will require effort, but if you want to have complete control of the peaks and have whipped cream that will retain its structural integrity even until the following day, hand mixing is the way to go!
These are methods that will use everyday kitchen tools that you will already most likely have in your own kitchen. Now that you know how easy and quick it is to make your own whipped cream, you can go ahead and try it for yourself when you prepare your next meal! Out of all the different methods discussed above, using a blender is the top choice because it is the one that will yield the best results in the least amount of time with little effort and work required from you. Making sure that you have a good blender that can do the legwork for you is a must to getting the best results in terms of your homemade whipped cream.
