1. What is whipped cream?

First off, we will have a look at what whipped cream actually is. Whipped cream is a light and fluffy topping that is made by whipping heavy cream (and other flavors or liquids) until it becomes thick and airy. Whipped cream is commonly used to top desserts such as pies, cakes, and hot drinks like hot chocolate or coffee. 


2. How do I make whipped cream?

SupremeWhip are experts in providing perfect whipped cream every time! All you need is a whipped cream dispenser and a nitrous oxide canister! Simply put the desired liquids into the dispenser, add any desired flavorings or sweeteners, and insert the nitrous oxide canister. Shake the dispenser vigorously for a few seconds, and voila! You have homemade whipped cream!

The cream chargers from SupremeWhip quickly produce a velvety foam with a rich, creamy texture that is ideal for topping drinks and desserts.

Whipped cream dispensers are versatile and can handle various liquids and solids, from creams to potatoes. When working with liquids, it's important to ensure they have an adequate thickness for nitrous oxide bubbles to pass through. Essentially, the denser the liquid, the better results you will achieve!


3. What is nitrous oxide?

Nitrous oxide is a naturally occurring compound composed of two nitrogen atoms and one oxygen atom and is also known as laughing gas or N2O. It is commonly used in whipped cream dispensers to create homemade whipped cream.

When making whipped cream, nitrous oxide plays a crucial role in aerating the cream and creating a light and fluffy texture. As it dissolves into the cream, it expands and forms bubbles, contributing to the volume and stability that characterize whipped cream.


4. How much nitrous oxide is in a whipped cream can?

Using SupremeWhips products, you can turn around 0.5 litres of cream into 1.5 litres of whipped cream, depending on which whipped cream chargers you choose. We stock many capacity options in our cream chargers, including 8g-9g so you can choose the amount that suits your needs. Check your dispenser first before you buy whipped cream chargers, as some whipped cream dispensers may only have a certain capacity.


5. How long does homemade whipped cream last?

With our cream chargers and whipped cream dispensers, you can enjoy whipped cream for up to two weeks if refrigerated. However, your whipped cream may start to deteriorate after a few days, so it's best to consume it within the first week for a better taste and texture.


6. Can I freeze homemade whipped cream?

Yes! Homemade whipped cream can be frozen, offering a practical way to extend the shelf life of whipped cream. Frozen whipped cream can be stored for up to around one month and it is best to thaw it in the refrigerator before using. Be aware that the texture may change slightly.

You should put your whipped cream in an airtight container or wrap the bowl well with plastic wrap. Refrigerate it right away. The cold temperature will make the whipped cream last longer. Remember that homemade whipped cream tastes and feels better if you eat it within a week!


9. How to make chocolate whipped cream

If you want to make your whipped cream more delicious, you can add some chocolate flavor to it. You can use either cocoa powder or melted chocolate and mix it with your whipped cream before putting it in your whipped cream dispenser. Then, use a cream charger to whip it up. You can decide how much cocoa powder or melted chocolate you want to use, depending on how you like it.
