Cheese whipping: why it’s so good (yes, really!)

Must Try

We all regularly whip cream, but did you know that you can also use that mixer (or whisk, or food processor…) for other purposes? And no, we’re not talking about protein (meringue <3), but about cheese! From whipped goat cheese to whipped ricotta and mascarpone: everything is possible. But er, whipping cheese – why?

We have the answers for you. Mixers ready? Beat up! (sorry, cheesy )

Whip up cheese, why would you?

We have one word for you: creaminess. The same feeling you get when you eat a lasagna full of cream and cheese, you also get when you whip cheese. That’s because you’re essentially beating air into the batter – and fluffier makes creamier.

In addition, whipping cheese is a good way to flavor your cheese with other ingredients. For example, you can whisk in olive oil and lemon juice, garlic and fresh herbs or just a little sugar.

Of course you can also serve cheese with olive oil on top, but it still gives a more special taste if you beat it through correctly.

In addition, whipped cheese is just a really fun way to experiment in the kitchen; it’s just a bit different than usual. Also great fun to impress other people with, of course.

You can whip these cheeses

If you’re planning to drop a block of Gouda cheese into your food processor, that might not be such a good plan (unless you want grated cheese, but that’s another story). The cheeses that lend themselves best for this are already somewhat creamy on their own.

Think for example of ricotta, mascarpone, crème frache and cream cheese . The slightly firmer cheeses, such as (soft) goat cheese, brie, feta and blue cheese , also work well.

In the latter case, it is important that you first cut or break the cheese into small pieces. You can also add some milk and/or regular whipping cream to make the consistency a little creamier. If you don’t, it’s just a matter of whisking well until the lumps are gone.

You can also mix several cheeses together: on bon appétit  we saw, for example, this mixture of whipped goat cheese, feta, cream cheese and whipped cream. And that with roasted cauliflower – what more could you want?

And then?

You can eat whipped cheese in many ways: sweet or savory, loose or in a dish. It just depends on what you like, and also a bit how far your imagination reaches.

For example, make a good spicy dip of whipped ricotta with jalapeños and garlic to dip warm flatbread in, or a sweet mix of whipped crème frache with sugar for your freshly baked cake. The internet is full of recipes, so grab that mixer.
