You need not require any fancy kitchen appliances like a food processor, electric beater, or electric blender. Whipped cream can be used to decorate cakes, as toppings for brownies, cookies, over a tall jar of fresh juice, ice cream, or even over a cup of chocolate milk!
With that said, let us get started.
Can we beat whipping cream in mixer grinder?
With some consistent practice, you can master making whipped cream in mixer grinder. Using a mixer grinder to whip cream is also quicker, easier, and takes less time to clean. Here is how you make your whipped cream in a mixer grinder!
Get ready with some icing sugar, to suit your need for sweetness, regular whipping cream with a minimum of 30% fat content, and a small amount of vanilla extract.
Before you get started, leave the mixer grinder’s blending jar in the freezer for 3 to 4 hours (without the lid). Do not leave for more than an hour if it is made out of glass.
★ Let the whipping cream chill in the refrigerator in the meantime. Note, just chill, not freeze.
★ After you take the blender out from the freezer you have to work fast. Add the chilled cream into the frozen jar. Remember not to add any more than a quarter of the capacity of the blender jar. This is because the cream needs space to be whipped.
★ You can either use the whip button or you can set the blender on the highest speed setting. Different mixer grinders will take different times to whip cream. After the first 30 seconds, check on how far the cream has progressed.
★ Pay attention to the noise the mixer makes. The initial sound you hear will have a certain amount of friction in it. This will change into a plain blending sound. Check on the cream again when this happens.
Use a steel spoon or spatula to check if your whipped cream has got any soft peaks. Continue to whip for a few more seconds until your cream has thickened to form soft peaks when you attempt to take it using the spatula.
★ Once you get the soft peaks add in the icing sugar and the vanilla extract. Do not overdo the sugar, add in small portions so that you can adjust the sweetness later accordingly. For example, 5 teaspoons of sugar for 4 cups of whipped cream. The vanilla extract must be just a pinch if it is powder, and 1/4 teaspoon if it is a liquid extract.
★ Continue to whip on high speed for a couple of more minutes. Keep checking on the cream every 30 seconds until you reach the stiff peaks stage. STOP immediately when the cream is stiff. If you go any further you will turn the cream into butter, and it cannot be reversed.
★ Leave the whipped cream in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes for it to set. Always keep it chilled and bring the cream out only when necessary, because the cream will melt at room temperature.

At what speed mixer grinder should be on for whipped cream

Which blade is used for whipping cream?
If you are making whipped cream in mixer grinder, you can use the biggest sized jar and blade that you have. The size of the jar and the blade will differ across each model and brand. The large jar will always allow space for the cream to aerate while whipping. There must be enough space for the cream to double in size, hence make use of the large blade for efficient whipping and the large jar.
Why is my whipping cream not whipping?
Do you think your attempts to make whipped cream in mixer are a failure because the cream in the mixer grinder is not whipping? There can be a couple of reasons why you are unable to make whipped cream in the perfect consistency. They could be:
1. The blender or mixer jar is warm.
2. The whipped cream is warm. This warmth will make the fat ineffective as a stabilizer. Even if the cream thickens from the whipping, it will lack the fluffy texture and fall flat when the cream is warm.
3. Whipping at a low speed.
4. Whipping for too short or too long. Whipping for too short will not give you thickness, whipping for too long will give you butter.
5. Not using the right type of cream. You must use whipped cream or any heavy cream, rather than any low-fat cream. To make whipped cream you require more than 30% of butterfat content.
6. Adding the sweetener at the wrong time can also mess up your whipped cream. You must add the sweetener the moment the friction in the blender stops and the cream gains some thickness. This is because sugar prevents the cream from thickening, thus the moment you add it in is crucial.
How long does it take to whip cream manually?
Making whipped cream manually can be a little challenging. However, it is doable. It can take anywhere between 5 to 10 minutes to make whipped cream manually. You will get soft peaks in 3 to 5 minutes. After this, you will reach the stiff peaks stage upon persistent whipping.
