Going Beyond Whipped Cream

Many people don’t realize this but whipped cream dispensers can make a lot more then whipped cream. Espumas, soups, foams and yogurt to mention a few. The whipped cream dispensers  will expand your baking and cooking on a whole new level, so lets get experimenting!

Check out some of these recipes.

Tip* Some of these recipes call for a ISI Gourmet or ISI Thermo Whip dispenser, as they allow you to make hot foods. If you do not have either of these dispensers  you can puchase a silicone gasket which will fit in all ISI dispensers. This gasket will allow you to make hot food items, in any ISI dispenser. You can purchase that here:
