Peanut butter whipped cream is a perfect ingredient for almost any kind of sweet treat, especially if you had enough of eating its chocolate-flavored variant. The peanut butter whipped cream is just as great as its chocolate counterpart because of its rich flavor that compliments well the creaminess of the heavy cream that will be used for this recipe. For sure your kids will love this alternative treat.
Peanut butter whipped cream is one of the most popular types of ingredients that are often used for pastries and other desserts. What made this whipped cream variant great is that it is more stable than most whipped cream variants, guaranteeing that it can hold on for a long time without ruining its design. The main reason why it’s more stable is simple: the peanut butter ensures that the foaminess of the whipped cream will hold on.
What made peanut butter whipped cream much better is that you will never have a hard time making it at home. That’s why in this article, you will learn a lot when it comes to the ingredients (which are surprisingly easy to find) and the steps needed to be done to create this frothy variant of whipped cream.
Peanut Butter Whipped Cream Ingredients
The ingredients for the peanut butter whipped cream are very easy to find. Here are the following:
- 4 cups heavy cream
- 1 cup confectioners’ sugar or powdered sugar
- Peanut Butter, as much as you need!
The peanut butter needed for the whipped cream depends on your preference. But as much as possible, I recommend that you need to add at least 2 tablespoons of peanut butter just to ensure that it has the rich nutty flavor for your whipped cream. But be careful not to apply too much whipped cream into the mixture, as the peanut butter may take over the while whipped cream. If that’s the case, you just made yourself a creamier version of the peanut butter you have at home!
For the peanut butter that you are going to use, make sure that you get the creamy ones in the grocery. The creamier, the better, as it will never ruin the consistency of your whipped cream as you mix it. Some peanut butter is known to get hard, which is why you do not drain the oil for this type of peanut butter to avoid hardening. As for the sweetness of the peanut butter, it’s fine to use the sweeter variants than the unsweetened ones. Just make sure to balance the sweet peanut butter and the sugar instead,
You only need to use a mixer or a whisk for whipping the cream into perfection. The mixer is more recommended than the whisk because some peanut butter types are too sticky, which might give you a hard time whipping it at the first minute. You also need to prepare a large bowl for the ingredients, especially if you are planning to whisk hard if the peanut butter is too sticky.
Preparing The Peanut Butter Whipped Cream
To prepare the peanut butter whipped cream, use a mixer or a whisk on the heavy cream that you placed in the large bowl. Be sure to whisk or mix thoroughly without stopping to avoid the cream to form back to its liquid form, which will just waste all of your efforts. Before you add the rest of the ingredients, make sure that you whisk for one minute to two minutes.
Next is to add up the peanut butter and the sugar together. You can go ahead and sift the powdered sugar over the peanut butter before whisking the heavy cream. Once you add up the peanut butter to the heavy cream, be sure to set the mixer at a higher level so then the whole peanut butter will incorporate into the heavy cream mixture. When using a whisk, be sure to whip harder for the rest of the whipping duration. A maximum of 4 minutes is enough to turn everything into a foam.
The flavorful peanut butter whipped cream is perfect for french toast, muffins, and some cakes. Some may even want to use this on bananas since the flavor of the peanut butter always compliments well the texture and the taste of the banana. Those who make banana loaves may love to garnish it with this whipped cream for a much better experience. If you don’t want to apply chocolate whipped cream to the desserts where you usually add it, this flavor of whipped cream serves as an amazing alternative.
