Clementine Whipped Cream

Lately, I’ve enjoyed flavoring my sweets with clementines. Almost as much as I love giving desserts a touch of chai flavor.

So it isn’t surprising that when I started brainstorming flavored whipped creams, clementine was one of the first flavors that popped into my head.

As the whipped cream melts into the hot chocolate, it infuses the drink with a fabulous citrus flavor, reminiscent of one of those chocolate oranges.

Remember those? Cracking them on the table so that the slices would come apart when you unwrapped the foil?

If you liked those, you’ll love topping your hot chocolate with this whipped cream. But be careful to not overflow your mug. Not that I’m speaking from experience or anything…
