The second best thing about winter is a walk in the crisp, countryside air. The best thing about winter is the hot chocolate you can justify drinking after the walk. Unfortunately, the Allergy Brothers had never been able to have an enormous hot chocolate covered in cream and marshmallows, because we have never found a whipped cream that they could eat. Soyatoo sold soya-based creams that could be whipped (Soya Topping Cream – 300ml) or came in pressurised containers(SOYATOO – SOYA SOYA CREAM SPRAY), but these were no good for the Allergy Brothers.
We were very excited to discover that Schlagfix sell a “Universelle Schlagcreme” that the boys could potentially eat. This product can be used for whipping, cooking and baking. If I am honest, I found the name very funny too because I am immature. Anyway, here are the Ingredients:
Water, Palm kernel oil (fully hydrogenated) 15%, maltodextrin; glucose syrup; stabilizer: starch, E435, E331, E464, E460, E466, E339; emulsifiers: E4,81, E471, E475; salt, flavour.
Allergy Little enjoyed helping whip the cream, although, as you can see, he doesn’t like the noise of the beaters. It turns out that you can get this cream in a pressurised container (Schlagfix Vegan Squirty Cream) too so that would save some work.
If we are honest, Allergy Little and I weren’t that impressed. It turns out that something that is made out of oils and E numbers tastes like… well, oily chemicals. Who knew?! But this product has its uses. I am sure if you flavoured the cream then it would be much better. I can imagine that we will use this cream when we need to make an Allergy Brother-friendly version of a specific recipe.
We used regular marshmallows, but you can get vegan mini pink and white marshmallows.
