Beaten whipped cream is what is obtained after beating the unbeaten whipped cream in an electric beater till it is fluffy and thick. There are 3 types of whipped creams available in the market like Rich’s non dairy cream, dairy cream and in powdered form. The best results come with Rich’s cream followed by dairy cream. If using powdered cream, follow the exact instructions on the packet. The cream available in tetra packs (like Amul, Vijaya etc.) is fresh cream and cannot be whipped, due to its low fat content.

Whipping the cream to its correct stage is very crucial to make mousses. 1¼ cups of unbeaten whipped cream will approx. yield 2 cups of whipped cream and this will take approx. 8 to 10 minutes. Always use an electric beater and not a hand beater to whip the cream.

Over whipping turns the cream into butter and buttermilk. Adding sugar at the beginning of the whipping process reduces the volume greatly. Beaten whipped cream is best had right after being whipped, but it can also be covered and chilled for up to 24 hours, so ideally feel free to whip the cream just before the guests get home. And remember the heavier the cream, the lesser it needs to be whipped.
