Whipping cream from scratch in the Thermomix is easy if you follow these tips. Never buy store bought whipped cream again when you can have freshly whipped cream in under 3-4 minutes.
If you follow these tips you can achieve the perfect Thermomix Whipped Cream every time.
Thermomix Whipped Cream Tips
- Whip the cream chilled straight from the fridge. If it's a hot day then chill the Thermomix bowl in the fridge for 10 minutes beforehand. This will help speed up the process.
- Use full fat whipping cream and not light cream. You could always sweeten it with a little honey, vanilla extract or icing sugar.
- Insert the Butterfly attachment first and never mix past speed 3.
- It is recommended not to mix more than 600g cream at any given time.
- Watch it REALLY carefully through the lid. Once it starts to become thicker it progresses quickly and you don't want to end up with butter and buttermilk! Timing varies on freshness and quantity. I always watch it after about 20 seconds. When it becomes thicker the sound of the blades spinning will change.
When I first used the Thermomix for whipped cream it took me a couple of goes to get it right. If you're not sure on the thickness, just stop, open the lid then mix again for another 3+ second increments. Best of luck!
