View Full Version : Whipped cream photo and recipe for gas whippers
07-03-2009, 04:59 PM
I took a picture of whipped cream I made with my new iSi whipper:
That's the whipper of course, the whipped cream picture is attached.
The recipe is:
1 1/4 cup water
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup macadamia nuts (as an emulsifier so the oil and water mix)
1/4 cup agave
1/2 vanilla bean.
I found a trick to measure the coconut oil if it's solid: fill the blender jar to the 1 1/4 cup line with water, then add chunks of coconut oil until it reaches the 1.5 cup line. Then make sure to blend long enough to melt the oil.
Blend on high speed in a blendtec or vitamix (a regular blender will likely leave it too grainy and jam the whipper's valve open). Pour in whipper (this makes just the right amount for the 500 ml models), add N20 gas, and refrigerate for several hours (it will not whip/inflate otherwise).
I think I could still improve the taste a bit but the texture is spot on now.
I don't know how it would work without a gas whipper, if anyone wants to try to whip it with a mixer or hand whip let us know how it works out (remember to refrigerate the cream for several hours otherwise it can't be whipped).

Looks AWESOME Raweater!
Thanks for all your hard work on solving this important raw food dilemma!
And sharing your recipe!

Thank you for the recipe! I tried it today (before I saw your post) using Irish Moss as a thickener along w/ cashews and coconut oil. The irish moss gave me a completely lovely pudding, but too thick for it to work in the whipper. I can't wait to try again. Thanks!

Has anyone tried this or another recipe?
I'm thinking it maybe could use even less coconut oil, maybe I'll try it with 1/4 cup and I'll put cacao for a chocolate mousse this time.
The reason I say this is that even though it did stay liquid with the above recipe (actually after a day in the fridge you need to give it a good shake otherwise it doesn't shake so something gets solid in there) today I came to use some it it wouldn't come out. I figured the gas must have escaped so I start unscrewing it and then KABLAMO! A major explosion of whipped cream coated most of the kitchen and dining room in whipped cream, it wasn't too fun to clean.
Be careful if you think yours is out of pressure, it may just be jammed and you may set off a whipped cream bomb if you unscrew it completely. I guess one solution would be to dip it in hot water to melt the coconut oil and hope that unjams it, otherwise unscrew it just slightly so the pressure can slowly escape.

I just made another batch fo 2 cups but with 1/4 cup of oil to see if that's enough to be whippable. I also added cacao powder for a chocolate version. I'll let you know how it turns out.

Wow, that looks amazing!

Well the chocolate one has been chilling for about 2 hours and it's still whippable with 1/4 cup of oil in the 2 cups total and seems to be better. I'll update the original recipe in this post to 1/4 cup of oil too.

This recipe looks amazing, I want to try it!
Wow - my iSi cream whipper was retired when I stopped low-carbing. I'm tickled that it can be used for our whipped cream! I've still got a ton of cartridges.
Thanks Raweater! *Ü*

Has anyone tried the whipped cream recipe? Finally I think the ideal amont of coconut oil is between 1/4 and 1/2 cup in a total of 2 cups of mix. 1/4 cup works but it's not very stiff cream, 1/2 cup makes it a bit too thick and often clogs the valve. I just made the recipe again using 1 cup of strawberries and about 1/4 cup plus 2 tbsp of coconut oil (which is really 6 tbsp). It's not chilled yet.

bumping, I'm trying this recipe again after not using my iSi whipper in months.
I've also started firefighter school since and learned that iSi also makes some of the firefighter breating apparatus lol, from whipped cream to firefighting, who would have thought?

YOUR recipe sounds and looks really delicious Raweater congrats on figuring out how to make it !

I haven't tried this yet - may do tonight!
I haven't had a sweetie in quite a while, time to indulge!
Raweater - any comment on the chocolate mousse version?
01-28-2010, 04:08 PM
T-Bird, do you have an iSi compressed gas cream whipper? I haven't tried whipping it any other way so I don't know if other whipping methods would work so let me know if you try another method.
The chocolate version was good.

I don't know who makes it, but it's silver and uses compressed nitrous for delivery.....
