The Most of Food Grade Nitrous
If you’re looking to get the most out of your food grade nitrous oxide charged cream dispenser, why not cater to the vegan crowd as well? There are plenty of great dairy-free alternatives to cream you can whip up at home that will make delicious additions to both desserts and cocktails. Whether you’re vegan yourself, or in need of different options to entertain your vegan friends, you can use your cream dispenser for a number of recipes. Here are a few examples of vegan alternatives you can create easily at home.
Soy whipped cream
Soy is a popular alternative to dairy. As long as you use a quality dispenser, you can blend a delicious homemade soy whipped cream. A food grade nitrous oxide charged dispenser will get the best results. It’s also important to follow the recipe to the letter. Combine equal parts of soy milk and coconut oil with granulated sugar and vanilla essence to taste. Add half a teaspoon of xanthan gum as a stabiliser as well. Leave the mixture in the refrigerator overnight and remove it the next day for whipping. You should be able to whip it into soft peaks within a few minutes.
Raw coconut whipped cream
Raw coconut is one of the more common vegan food trends at the moment due to its protein content and delicious taste. It’s also ideal for making whipped cream as you should get a nice thick consistency. Prepare homemade coconut milk and chill it in the fridge for one to two days. This will help separate the fat from the milk. Remove the fat and mix it with a dash of maple syrup and vanilla extract. Load and set your food grade nitrous oxide cream dispenser according to the instructions. You can keep the cream like this for a couple of days in the fridge.
Aquafaba whipped cream
Another popular vegan alternative is aquafaba which is actually derived from chickpeas. Drain the water from a can of chickpeas and add ⅛ teaspoon of cream of tartar. You can then blend this with powdered sugar and vanilla to taste. Use your cream dispenser to serve it with a range of desserts such as pumpkin pie, brownies, and apple cake. Alternatively, you could add it to hot drinks and cocktails. Aquafaba whipped cream is very versatile and 100% dairy-free.

Cashew whipped cream
You could use certain nuts to prepare a vegan cream such as cashews or almonds. If you make it right, homemade cashew cream has a lovely consistency, light and creamy. You can use tapioca starch to thicken the mixture as well. Ground cashews are the base of this recipe and you can add your choice of sweetener.
If you would like to prepare some delicious recipes using whipped creams, invest in a cream dispenser that’s charged with food grade nitrous oxide. This will give you the best results and you can really impress your guests.
