What do you make a whipped foam with?

In the Modernist Recipes Forum
Whipped foams have always been one of my favorite things when it comes to food. I’ve always wanted to try something more than just the classic whipped cream though. I am looking to try and make some flavored whipped foam, but I’m not sure I have what I need for it. What do you make whipped foam with? Is there any specific tool or equipment that I need to buy to get started making these?

It’s no wonder that whipped foams are popular with many people. There is something about the dense yet light foam that makes this a favorite of many. While this may look like a challenge to make, whipped foams are relatively easy to come up with and can be made with a variety of tools/equipment.

If you have a stand mixer with a whisk attachment then you can easily make whipped foam. If you don’t have a stand mixer, an electric hand held one may work too as long as the foam you’re trying to make is not too dense. A regular hand whisk may also work in some cases.

A whipping siphon can also be used to make whipped foams. This handy little tool is a pressurized container that can hold liquid of different types and flavors and let out foams. A whipping siphon costs about $100 or a bit more, but is a good investment if you will be making a lot of foams since it will also let you store the liquid for future use. Also, investing in a whipping siphon will let you do more than make foams. It can be used for carbonating and infusing too.
