Coffee Whipped Cream Ingredients
Here are the ingredients that you need to take note of when making the coffee whipped cream:
- 4 cups heavy cream
- 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
- 1 tsp instant coffee
- 1 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
For this article, the use of vanilla extract for the whipped cream is an option especially if you don’t want the taste of your coffee to be too milky. The amount of coffee that you want to use for this recipe can be adjusted if you want to add or reduce it. The reason why is because we all have different tastes when it comes to the strength of coffee that we want to intake. This is also the same for those who prefer a higher dose of caffeine. But if the flavor of coffee is the only one you prefer, then go for decaf coffee for this recipe instead.
As for the utensils that you need to use for this recipe, just go ahead and prepare your hand mixer or whisk. You will also need a large bowl to make sure that all the heavy cream and its ingredients will mix well without spilling over as you whip the cream harder. You can use a small bowl as an optional utensil if you need to sift the coffee and sugar if you want to. Instant Coffee is a type of coffee that can be prepared from a dry powder or granules, usually made from roasted coffee beans that are ground, and then mixed with hot water.
Preparing the Coffee Whipped Cream
As an optional first step, you can sift the coffee powder and the powdered sugar together in a small bowl so then the two ingredients will blend very well with the heavy cream. This ensures that there will be no spots that are either too bitter or too sweet to the taste of your final product.
Next is to place all the heavy cream into a large bowl, then use the mixer or whisk to whip the cream for a maximum duration of 4 minutes. In the first minute, add up the sifted coffee and powdered sugar together. You will notice that the white cream will darken into a brown color. At this point, you can also include the vanilla extract if you want a milkier flavor to your whipped cream. Continue to whip the cream mixture until it turns into a consistency that’s the same as shaving cream.
If you want save time you can use a cream whipper dispenser and cream chargers like Starbucks does. This makes whipping cream easy and almost instant. It also ensures that your cream will be well-preserved as the nitrous oxide in the whip cream chargers works as an anti-bacterial. This method is known to be excellent for making a business such as cafes or selling your brand of whipped cream. It’s a very fun experiment to try out, but the steps all depend on the type of charger that you will go ahead and use.
