Honey whipped cream- yes please!

What’s the hardest thing about living in a country other than your home country? I suppose that answer is different for everyone, but for many people the answer is the food. Now, where we live the food is amazing. I’m not talking about that! I’m talking about missing the comfort food that we have grown to know and love.

I don’t have many foods or beverages that make me feel like I’m suffering if I got without them for an extended period of time. Moreover, I don’t think there’s any food that I’d pay ten times the normal price for. But, then again, ask me that next time I’m pregnant. But, if there is one thing I could wish into existence in Istanbul supermarkets it would be flavored Coffeemate creamer. Anyone else with me? I’m talking vanilla, hazelnut, vanilla nut, and, my all time favorite, toffee nut. I’m drooling thinking about them.

Well, as it turns out, they are not here. So, with good ole’ fashioned America ingenuity, I came up with another solution- honey whipped cream! Well, by came up with I mean I found this recipe somewhere on the internet and employed it into my morning coffee repertoire. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Honey Whipped Cream


250 ml heavy cream

1-2 tsp vanilla extract (or almond or rum or whatever you fancy!)

2-3 tsp honey

Whip up 250 ml of whipping cream. When it’s good and fluffy add 2-3 teaspoons of honey, 1-2 teaspoons of vanilla. Put one or several dollops on your iced or hot cup of black coffee, and get ready to be in a very, very good mood.

*The good news with this recipe is you don’t have to stop here. You can add chocolate, or a cinnamon stick, or caramel, or a sprinkle of cinnamon, or any other ingredient you like to make it perfect for you!
