How to whip cream

2 (out of 3)




editor's note

A mix of clotted double cream and yoghurt is a great alternative to mayonaise. The latter is not everyone's favourite. However mayonaise is a great spread to cement sandwiches or to flavour a salad. So this alternative has a fluffy texture. Holds a taste that is rather sweet and creamy. However, there is a downside. You cannot store it overnight. For the reason all airy bubbles will have left your jar or container. PS for this recipe I have used Greek Yoghurt. That you can replace by French Yoghurt. The named variances taste less bitter than standard yoghurt. That is offered in Dutch supermarkets


  1. 100 ml of double cream 
  2. 100 ml of yoghurt
  3. 1 tbs. of dried dill tops
  4. 5 crab sticks (aka surimi sticks)
  5. freshly grounded pepper
  6. Optional: salt
