Cannabis-Infused Whipped Cream: Done Two Ways

Why on earth would you buy a five dollar can of carrageenan and skim milk to substitute for the pure goodness of fresh whipped cream? I can see grabbing a healthier alternative as a valid reason, but convenience is nothing compared to the magic of real thing.

A few dirty dishes are nothing to fear in the pursuit of taste. Be like me and get a portable dishwasher or make the person you’re serving do the washing. The homemade version is almost always better, and with whipped cream, the worst thing that could happen is that you make accidental butter. Real bummer, am I right? Plus when you add cannabis tincture, you’re sweetening and spiking in one step.

If you like whipped cream (or using a more modernist tool for cooking), a reusable co2 canister is an excellent device investment. The cartridges are not crazy expensive, and you can literally pour your ingredients in and have fresh whipped cream for days. You can also use a whisk or hand mixer to do the same thing in seconds.

Instructions for the canister:

Measure ingredients based on the capacity of your canister into a measuring cup. Stir until combined. Pour into device, charge with two co2 chargers.

Instructions for a hand mixer:

In a large bowl (you want room to work) stir ingredients until mixed. Whip on medium with hand mixer until triple in size. Stop when it’s airy and silky and still has movement, any further and it will begin to harden and make butter. If that’s what you want, roll on!

*Cannabis Glycerin Tincture

In an oven safe container double sealed with foil, decarboxylate 3.5 grams finely ground cannabis at 225 degrees Fahrenheit.

Put cannabis in a mason jar or vacuum sealed bag, pour over 2 oz vegetable glycerin and seal tightly. Place in a water bath at just under boiling for 1 hour. Strain and keep contents in a sterilized container. Stores indefinitely in freezer.

No matter which way you make it, consume within a few days. The canister will keep it airy and fresh, with a tub you may lose some of the volume but it will still be tasty. Dish on desserts, hot cocoa, pancakes, fruit, anything! I use mine on coffee and to stack with fresh raspberries in a parfait.

THC per serving: 5 mg per 1/8th cup of whipped cream.
