The Basics of Cream Chargers and Whippers
To get started, let’s discuss what a cream charger and whipper are. A cream charger is a small, disposable metal container filled with nitrous oxide gas. These chargers are inserted into a whipped cream dispenser, which releases the gas into the cream to create whipped cream. The dispenser comes with various tips that allow you to create different designs of whipped cream.
1. Coffee-flavored whipped cream
If you love coffee, this recipe is for you. Infuse your whipped cream with coffee for a rich, bold flavor. To make it, start by brewing a strong cup of coffee. Add that coffee to your whipped cream dispenser, along with heavy cream and sugar to taste. Charge the dispenser with one cream charger, shake vigorously, and dispense the coffee-flavored whipped cream over your favorite dessert or coffee drink.
2. Sweet and Tangy Lemon Meringue
Why not try something on the tangy side? A lemon meringue is a perfect dessert for those who love a balance of sweet and tangy. Begin by whipping up a batch of lemon curd. Once made, fill a whipped cream dispenser with heavy cream, a little sugar, and the lemon curd. Charge with your cream charger, shake and voila! You have sweet and tangy lemon meringue!

Q. Can I use any type of cream for whipped cream?
Yes, you can use any kind of cream with your whipped cream dispenser. Heavy cream is the most commonly used type of cream, but you can use half-and-half or light whipping cream if you prefer.
Q. Can I use a whipped cream dispenser to make meringues?
No, a whipped cream dispenser is not designed for making meringues. You need to use an electric mixer for meringues as the volume of eggs whites requires the machine to run for a longer time.
Q. How do you clean the whipped cream dispenser?
To clean your whipped cream dispenser, remove any leftover whipped cream and wash the inside of the bottle with warm soapy water. Rinse thoroughly and let it air dry.
Q. Can you reuse a whipped cream charger?
No, whipped cream chargers are single-use. After a charger is used, it must be recycled.
Whipped cream chargers and dispensers are not just used for traditional whipped cream. There are many different recipes you can try, from watermelon-infused whipped cream to whiskey-infused whipped cream. With a little creativity, you can create some unique and delicious desserts.
