Can we talk cream?

Cream Just Got Real! Introducing Brooklyn Creamery's Single and Double Cream! |

(This is a sponsored post written in conjunction with The Brooklyn Creamery Company and a campaign for Sverve. All opinions are 100% my own.)

Being the good Brazilian that I am (is that such a thing of bad Brazilian? Oh yes, there is!) my heart flutters at any mention of the word “cream”. So many Brazilian dishes require some sort of cream and, after moving to the U.S., I always have trouble finding the right kind. 

So imagine my excitement when I heard about this new kind of cream by The Brooklyn Creamery Company! “A thick and rich spoonable cream”? I can think of a million recipes that would benefit from a product like that.

So what exactly is this new wonder cream?

Double cream is an indulgent extra thick cream that tastes similar to a heavy cream but has the consistency similar to Green yogurt or sour cream (but without the sour flavor). It is all natural, without any added sugars, salts or artificial preservatives. Not to mention it is Gluten-Free and Kosher!

They’ve also made a lighter version, called Single Cream, that has had the fat of the Double Cream.

“But how can I use this and where can I find it?”

This Extra Thick Cream is great for serving with fresh fruit, creating delectable dishes and desserts, or dressing up your favorite recipe! It is great for cooking: thickening pasta sauces, dips, spreads, custards, and soups; creating a variety of different flavored homemade ice creams and/or using it instead of regular heavy cream to give your recipes a richer, creamery texture. Think Creamy Alfredo, Creamy Cheese Sauce, Pumpkin Soup, Chowders, Guacamole, Spicy Buffalo Dip… Really, the sky is the limit!

You can also use the cream unaltered, to dip into fresh fruits, layer onto pastries, dollop onto soups and spread it on toast, waffles, pancakes or muffins. Yum!

And, finally, if using the double cream, you can also use it for some light whipping. It is very handy and it can be used as frosting for desserts, cream fillings, fresh homemade whipped cream with different flavors and you can also whip with condensed milk to make thick caramel, rich mousses, ganaches and many more.
