Light, airy, sweet whipped cream is an addition that takes any dessert to the level. From cakes to milkshakes, there is no limit to how you can incorporate whipped cream in your food. Similarly, there is no limit to whipped cream flavours.
While a simple, classic vanilla is uncontested, there are numerous flavours you can choose from which can accentuate the taste of whichever dish you’re making. All you have to do is mix all your ingredients in a bowl, and use acream charger to get that perfect airy texture!
Here are some of our favorite whipped cream flavours:
Chocolate flavoured Whipped Cream
Vanilla and chocolate are two classic flavours that you can’t go wrong with. Chocolate whipped cream might be less common than the former, but it tastes just as exquisite.
To make your own chocolate whipped cream, you can use unsweetened cocoa powder or melted cooking chocolate. If you’re using cocoa powder, mix a tablespoon of it with 2 tablespoons of heavy cream to make a paste. This helps eliminate any lumps from the cocoa powder. Add 4 teaspoons of sugar to 1 cup of heavy cream and mix in the chocolate powder paste.
Now you have an option between whisking it by hand or using a cream charger for convenience. With a whipped cream charger, you can easily dispense it onto any dessert you want.
Chocolate flavoured whipped cream goes perfectly with just about anything from chocolate desserts and milkshakes to coffees and ice creams.
Coffee flavoured Whipped Cream
“Espresso con panna” is an Italian specialty of an espresso shot topped with whipped cream. Whipped cream on coffee is not a new concept, but imagine if the cream itself was coffee flavoured.
Coffee flavoured whipped cream goes excellently with any chocolate dessert, and although you might be skeptical at first, it goes great with pineapple, strawberry, and orange flavoured desserts.
To make your own batch of coffee whipped cream, add 2 teaspoons of coffee or espresso powder to 1 cup of heavy cream with 1 tablespoon of sugar. Mix well and adjust the sweetness to your preference. Pour the mixture into a cannister and use a cream charger to get that light consistency.
Mint flavoured Whipped Cream
Mint and chocolate are a pairing that divides many people, but mint flavoured whipped cream can complement many other flavours as well.
If you’re one of those people who like the mint chocolate combination, you can use mint whipped cream on hot chocolate or chocolate desserts. If not, you can try it out on strawberry, berry, banana, or other desserts. Topping of a bowl of fresh fruit, i.e., melon, watermelon, berries, etc., with mint whipped cream can add a refreshing taste.
However, when compared to other whipped cream flavours, this takes slightly more effort. You’ll need to start a few hours ahead of time to allow the mint flavour to infuse into the cream. Chop up about a quarter cup of fresh mint leaves and add them to 1 cup of heavy cream. Cover and place the mixture in the refrigerator for up to 12 hours.
The next step is straining the mixture into a bowl, extracting as much liquid from the mint leaves as possible and then discarding the remains. Now, you can add sugar to your preferred sweetness.
Lastly, pour the cream into a whipped cream cannister and use a cream charger to get light mint whipped cream. Alternatively, you could use a mint flavoured infusion charger to achieve that minty flavour.
Strawberry flavoured Whipped Cream
When it comes to whipped cream flavours, it’s hard not to talk about strawberry flavoured whipped cream. Whether you use fresh strawberries, freeze-dried strawberries, or artificial flavouring, it gives your whipped cream a beautiful colour and delicious flavour.
If you’re using fresh strawberries, you should puree them in a food processor and cook them over heat to reduce it to a thick syrupy texture. Mix it into the heavy cream and use a whipped cream charger to dispense it onto your favorite cheesecakes, ice creams, or milkshakes.
Lemon flavoured Whipped Cream
Lemon adds a refreshing flavour to desserts such as fruit tarts, cheesecakes, biscuits, or pound cakes. You can use the tanginess of the lemon to balance any sweetness in your desserts.
About 2 to 3 tablespoons of lemon curd or lemon juice and a tablespoon of sugar can be added to 1 cup of heavy cream. For an extra kick in flavour, you can grate lemon zest into the cream. Add the cream mixture into a dispenser and use a cream charger to create stiff, light peaks.
Rose flavoured Whipped Cream
Rose flavoured whipped cream is not a very common concept, but experimenting with different flavours can help you create exceptional desserts. The rose flavour pairs particularly well with berry desserts, chocolate desserts, and fresh fruits.
Half a teaspoon of rose water and 1 to 2 tablespoons of sugar is sufficient for 1 cup of heavy cream. Remember, you don’t want the rose flavour to be overpowering. Mix and use a dispenser and cream charger to achieve the whipped cream texture.
With a vast variety of whipped cream flavours, you can experiment with the ones we mentioned above, or try your own creations! Investing in a whipped cream dispenser is worthwhile since it saves you a lot of time and effort. A whipped cream charger allows you to have the stiff peaks you desire in a matter of minutes.
