But if you constantly crave whipped cream, you might want to
try whipping your cream using a cream whipper. Here's what
you will need: cream whippers, heavy whipping cream and
cream chargers. You can also add flavor with various
flavored syrups, sugars, or artificial sweeteners.

When you have a whipped cream dispenser, making whipped
cream is an easy process. First, you need to open up the
cream whipper. Now put in cream until it reaches about half
of the container. If you want to add flavoring or sugar, now
is the best time to do it. If you're using a cream whipper,
it is best to add powdered sugar. How much you add is
entirely up to you.

Replace the top and shake everything hard for up to a
minute. Now it's time to take off the protective cap on top
of the cream whipper. Then screw in the cream charger, using
the charger holder. You should do this step very carefully.
Twist the cream charger until you hear the sound of nitrous
oxide being distributed into the whipper. The nitrous oxide
is the emulsifier that will whip the cream. If it doesn't
distribute the cream, the cream whipper won't work.

Now put the protective cap back on and give the cream
whipper a final shake. Just squeeze the lever or press down
on it and voila! your very own whipped cream.

If you're a whipped cream fanatic, think about buying a
cream whipper. That way you'll be able to enjoy fast, easy
and fresh whipped cream whenever you need it.
