How To Make Whipped Yogurt Without Cream?

If you make whipped yogurt with soy lecithin, you don’t have to use heavy cream; you can simply add it to low-fat or fat-free yogurt and use a stick blender to whip air into it. Whipped yogurt made with soy lecithin holds its shape for 15 to 30 minutes, and it forms stiffer peaks than that made with cream.

Plain Greek Yogurt. Greek yogurt with flavors is an option to change up this recipe, but plain yogurt will give it a wonderful vanilla flavor. Generic greek yogurt often has added gum, gelatin, or pectin. This won’t work well for the recipe for the whipped yogurt dessert.

What are the ingredients in the Whipped Greek Yogurt?

Greek yogurt, whipping cream, maple syrup, and vanilla extract are the 4 ingredients in my recipe. Here are the details:

  • plain Greek yogurt – I recommend using 2% or whole fat yogurt here for that thick and creamy texture.
  • whipping cream – The whipping cream is going to add that extra UMPH of whipped airy goodness, and transform the texture of the Greek yogurt into something amazing!
  • maple syrup – Sweetener is required since we are using plain Greek yogurt. Feel free to sub for honey or your preferred liquid sweetener.
  • vanilla extract – A little bit of vanilla extract will give you the best flavor!
  • Fage Greek yogurt is my preferred brand, but you can use any plain Greek yogurt you like!

    Can you make whipped Greek yogurt without whipping cream?

    There are two ways to do it that I’m aware of.

  • Use coconut cream instead. You know the thick part at the top of a can of coconut milk? That has enough fat in it to also be useful for this recipe. Substituting the same amount of coconut cream for the whipping cream (1/4 cup) works very well. The consistency ends up about the same as when using whipping cream, however there’s a slight coconut taste from the coconut cream. This is an option if you don’t have whipping cream. Instructions for this method are detailed in the recipe card.
  • You can skip adding any cream entirely. Ultimately, this will yield a much less silky smooth and airy final product. Peaks will form minimally, and the whipped yogurt will most likely retain it’s yogurty consistency after storage in the fridge. There’s simply not enough fat in the mixture for the light and airy ‘whipped’ texture. I recommend method #1.
  • So how do you make Whipped Greek Yogurt?

    You only need a stand mixer or electric handheld mixer for this recipe, which is quite simple. The mixer will handle all the labor-intensive tasks and quickly make the Greek yogurt light and airy.

    One whole lemon will be the first ingredient in the lemon whipped Greek yogurt.

    Lemon juice should be added to a stand mixer bowl (or a sizable bowl with a handheld mixer).

    Juice half of the lemon into a bowl after slicing it in half. The amount of juice should be roughly 2 tablespoons. Make yourself a glass of ice cold lemon water with the other half and set it aside for another use.

    Afterward, combine the stand mixer with the Greek yogurt, honey, heavy cream, and CBD lemon drops.

    Start the stand mixer with the whisk attachment on low for 10 to 15 seconds to avoid too much splashing as the ingredients are combined.

    Slowly turn mixer to medium-high level (8 on a kitchen-aid). Continue to whisk for a few minutes or until the yogurt becomes fluffy and airy, or when peaks begin to form in the yogurt.

    Transfer your lemon whipped greek yogurt to bowls. Best served topped with a handful of fresh berries.

    Like heavy cream, yogurt can be used to thicken sauces. Because yogurt doesn’t have the same amount of fat as heavy cream, you’ll need to add some starch to prevent it from curdling. Before adding it to hot liquids, whisk in two teaspoons of cornstarch or one tablespoon of flour for each cup of yogurt.
