How to turn Milk into Low Fat Whipped / Mock Whipped Cream. Works real well for the figure! For all you weight watchers out there this is for you!
If you still have calories over for the day, you may also blend some real whipped cream into this, going half-and-half. If doing so, make sure you have whipped your cream beforehand and only then folding it into your mock cream.
1/4 Cup of cold water
10 Grams of unflavored gelatin
1 Cup of full cream milk
7.5 ml vanilla essence
1/4 Cup of icing sugar (Optional & added to own taste)
Add cold water to pan. Sprinkle over unflavored gelatin. Let sit about 5 minutes to allow sponging so granules can swell up, soaking up liquid. Once done, turn up heat, stirring until all crystals are dissolved. Do not allow gelatin to boil or it will lose its setting properties. Remove from heat.
Into a mixing bowl, add your milk followed by your dissolved gelatin. Whisk together with balloon whisk until well combined for about 20 – 30 seconds. Add vanilla essence and powdered sugar. Whisk until well combined. Refrigerate, allowing to set and cool down and thicken up which will take about 60 – 90 minutes.
After 20 mins refrigeration, remove – giving it all a good whisk or stir briskly with whisk to loosen it up. As soon as it begins to thicken, place back in refrigerator – removing it every 15 mins to give it a little stir. Once it has thickened and refrigeration time has completed. Beat with electric beater until it becomes whipped cream.
The vanilla essence does however give it a slightly darker tint than you would otherwise find with normal whipped cream.
