7 Instant Recipes to Try with Cream Chargers this Weekend
The increasing popularity of whipped cream siphons and nitrous oxide whipped cream chargers was totally unexpected several years ago. Today, it is hard to find a single fancy restaurant in Europe that doesn’t make use of these handy tools in their kitchen for either dessert, soups, espumas, cappuccinos, foams, or any other types of toppings and garnishes. These are also extensively used in bars and pubs to create quirkily impressive alcohol-infused drinks.
The best part is these tools are so easy to use that you can create pro-level dishes and drinks at home and that too, in a matter of minutes. Hard to believe? Here are 7 instant recipes to try with cream chargers this weekend:
Chilled Banana Mousse
- 4 oz of strained bananas
- 1/2 of skimmed milk
- 1/2 cup of low-fat vanilla frozen yogurt
- 1/2 teaspoon of tartar cream
- 1/16 teaspoon of nutmeg
- Cream dispenser and 615g N2O cream charger
Mix all the ingredients above in a whipped cream siphon. You can replace bananas with strained pear, peach, pineapple, or apricot. Also, you can use cinnamon in place of nutmeg.
Cream-Filled, Chocolate-Dipped Strawberries
- 1 lb of strawberries
- 8 oz of sweet chocolate
- 1 pot heavy cream
- 1/4 cup of sugar

Cut the stems and hollow out the center of each strawberry. Add heavy cream and sugar to your cream siphon and charge the contents with one nitrous cream charger. Put the whipped cream into each strawberry. Transfer all the strawberries to a baking sheet bordered with greaseproof paper.
Put the chocolate in a heat-resistant bowl set over a pan containing boiling water. Heat chocolate while stirring it occasionally until it’s melted. Dip the strawberries into the melted chocolate. Then, transfer the strawberries to the already prepared greaseproof paper. Do not forget to sprinkle crushed nuts over the chocolate coating before it solidifies. Finally, transfer the strawberries to the fridge to allow the chocolate to set. You can also pour some melted white chocolate over the strawberries as per your liking.
