How to make whipped peanut butter: easy-easy
So, you don't need to be a master chef to make it. It's a very simple recipe. The secret of its success lies in mixing it in such a way that tiny air bubbles are trapped, making it fluffy.
For my whipped peanut butter recipe, I use:
- Peanut butter: I generally choose a smooth peanut butter, but you can also choose a crunchy one.
- Powdered sugar: sugar softens the whipped peanut butter. If your baby is over a year old, you can use honey.
- Thick cream: for a smooth consistency of whipped peanut butter.
- Vanilla extract: for a smoother peanut butter. But this is not compulsory.
The addition of vanilla extract brings a subtle warmth and sweetness that complements the peanut butter.
- Pinch of salt: to balance out the sweetness, but you don't add salt before your baby is 1 year old.
How to make whipped peanut butter
I usually start by measuring the amount of peanut butter I need to whip, depending on how much whipped peanut butter I want. Bear in mind that when the air is incorporated, the peanut butter will expand. So I'd advise you to take a smaller quantity than you'd like to have.
Then add a tablespoon of sugar to enhance the flavor of your whipped peanut butter.
Add a pinch of salt to the mixture to balance the flavours.
Don't overdo it - a little goes a long way.
Next comes the dh foeut stage. You can choose a whisk or a hand mixer, which will be more efficient. As for me, I use a whisk and start foeutting at low speed, then gradually increase the speed.
Then the magic happens! The more you whisk, the more you'll notice the transformation of your peanut butter. It becomes clearer, and its texture softer.
Gradually add the thick cream and whisk the mixture, to obtain an even creamier texture.
Whisking traps air and creates a creamier texture.
Once you've reached the desired texture, you can stop whisking. Adjust the sweetness to your liking.
Transfer your whipped peanut butter to a container with a closed lid. You can store it in the fridge.
Variations on whipped peanut butter
Now that you've mastered the art of making whipped peanut butter, here are a few variations you're sure to enjoy. I promise you, you'll love it!
- Whipped Peanut butter with a hint of chocolate
Chocolate lovers, this variation is for you. Follow the peanut butter recipe, then add a step: melt a small amount of chocolate and add it delicately to your recipe. Be careful not to introduce chocolate to your baby too early, and wait until he can tolerate it before making this variation. But you can make it yourself.
- Whipped peanut butter with butter and nuts: add a drizzle of honey to your whipped peanut butter, and why not almonds or cashews for extra crunch.
- Coconut bliss whipped peanut butter: add a tablespoon of coconut milk or coconut cream to your whipped peanut butter before whipping. You'll get a coconut moix peanut butter.
I use this variation to top smoothie bowls, rice cakes, or even stir it into your morning oats, for a touch of heaven in every bite.
Voila! So enjoy!
