Benefits of Using Homemade Whipped Cream

There are many benefits of using homemade whipped cream. I have already touched this point in the intro. But now I will explain the benefits in detail.

Texture

The texture is one of the most important factors for whipped cream. There are specific recipes that require different textures. In that case, for store-bought whipped cream, you may not get the right texture that you need for a particular purpose. But for the homemade, one you can make it as per your need. 

Flavour

The whipped cream brands strive to make a single and common flavour. In that case, you don’t have any scope to customize it as your own. But in homemade whipped cream, you can add different flavours to satisfy your taste buds.

Taste

It’s quite evident that when you are making whipped cream on your own, it will be tasty. Because it allows you to make it as per your preferred flavour and texture.

But, when the same cream is made in the factory, the manufacturer may not focus on every single quantity of them. But when making it at home, you can give your full attention to it. 

All Natural Ingredients

The homemade whipped is made without any artificial ingredients. Apart from that, it is free from the fake thickener or a weird stabilizer to keep it fresh. So, if you have time to make your own, then go for it immediately.

Easy Adaptability

It’s a known factor that if you’re making it at our kitchen, then you will be able to make a lot of experiments as per your taste and required flavour. In fact, you can easily adapt as per the need and use the ingredients that are available to you to make it awesome.

In that case, you don’t need to rush to nearby stores every single time just to find the missing ingredients.

Things to Consider Before Making Whipped Cream in a Mixer Grinder

You can easily make whipped cream at home if you follow the instructions below. Before you start working, you should know which type of cream is best for whipping and how to get perfect output. 

You should always start with the right kind of cream that contains at least 33-35% fat. Let’s follow the rest guidelines.

It should be Chilled

Before you start whipping, make sure the utensil is cold. In that case, you can refrigerate the mixing bowl, whisk and whipping cream in advance. In case, you are pressed for time, chill them for at least 10-20 minutes. 

Whip it

The easiest method to whip cream is working with a stand mixer and whisk attachment. Just beat it for one minute to get a perfect consistency. When the soft peaks will start to form, you should be extra careful to get the required peak. You can also whip it by hand using a large whisk but this is a bit time-consuming process. 

Quantity

You should start whipping with 1-2 cups or 250-500ml cream at a time.

When to Serve

You should serve whipped cream right after it gets prepared. Mixing powdered sugar there will help you to stabilize it.

Refrigerate the Leftover Cream

You can keep the leftover whipped cream in the freezer for up to 3 months. The refrigeration should be in an airtight container.

How to Stabilize a Whipped Cream Correctly

It’s very important to stabilize a whipped cream to get the maximum result. Here I am adding methods of doing so by using 4 different stabilizing agents.

Whipped cream with sugar: Add powdered sugar slowly in heavy cream to make whipped cream. 

Cream of tartar: Combine two cups of fresh cream, ⅔ cups of powdered sugar, ½ tsp of cream of tartar and set it aside a few times and then whisk it. 

Gelatin: Let the mix of one teaspoon of gelatin powder for blooming itself. After that, microwave it and add one tablespoon of cream there and mix it up. Now you can whole cream into that. 

Agar and powdered milk: Add agar and powdered milk slowly in the cream and whisk it.


Mistakes to Avoid While Making Whipped Cream at Home

The following mistakes may ruin your whipped cream. Let’s check it. 

The cream is not chilled: If the cream is not chilled, the fat and stabilization will be ineffective. You should chill the bowl, beater and whisk to get the best result. 

Wrong kind of cream: You should choose a cream with at least 30% of fat. For vegans, coconut cream can be an option. 

Adding sugar at the wrong time: Don’t add sugar just when you start mixing. Let the cream add some thickness and then gradually add sugar. 

Whisking utensils is not right: You should use a whisk that can incorporate air into the cream. An electric mixer with a whisk attachment is ideal. But you can also use a hand whisk. However, it will take more time. 

Stabilization is not done in hot weather: Without proper stabilization, the cream will be melted. The stabilizer helps to hold its peak. 

You have made it in a rush: Whipping cream is a quick process. But make sure to set some times for chilling the cream and utensil. You should be extra careful when whisking the cream in the blender. 


How to Check the Right Consistency

ALL STEPS CREAM 1

The whipped cream has different peaks which are needed for a particular serving. Here, have a look at how you can get the right consistency. 

Soft peaks: The soft peaks generally don’t have any peaks. This is a cloud-like consistency. 

Medium peak: This is firmer than the soft peak. This is the moment when the cream starts to get stiff. 
Stiff peak: This is the right consistency that you desired. This consistency can hold its peak correctly.
