When you whip honey, something special happens.

Umamiology-Whipped-Honey-BeautyShot19

Traditional honey transforms into a uniquely creamy, spreadable consistency, with the introduction of air to the honey’s crystalline structure. This results in a smooth and velvety texture that enhances the honey’s versatility, making it easy to spread on toast, drizzle over desserts, or incorporate into various recipes.

Whipped honey also retains the natural sweetness and nutritional values of raw honey – so you can enjoy the delightful new texture of this liquid gold, without sacrificing any of the benefit.

What Is Whipped Honey?

Umamiology-Whipped-Honey-BeautyShot16

Whipped Honey is literally pure honey that has been whipped with a mixer to incorporate air within the crystalline structure of the honey.

It becomes very frothy and airy, just like when you beat egg whites to make a soufflé.

Not only that, it becomes incredibly spreadable and luxurious to taste – it’s like an elegant, creamier version of raw honey.

If you’ve never tried this or don’t know how to make whipped honey – you’ve come to the right place.

In this whipped honey recipe, I’ll show you a very quick and easy way to make this delicious honey – with only 2 simple ingredients.

What Happens When You Whip Honey?

Most people think that the best time to whip your honey is when your raw honey starts to crystalize and harden. And that makes sense – it transforms a hard and difficult-to-spread honey, into a smooth and creamy liquid.

But you don’t have to wait until your honey crystalizes to do this – you can whip honey no matter what state it’s in, even if it is fresh from the hive.

Whipping honey involves incorporating air into its composition, making the honey lighter in color, creamier and more spreadable in consistency. It evolves a dense and sticky liquid, into a more light and soft spread.

Key Elements Of This Recipe

  • Raw Honey: Raw Honey without any added sugar or corn syrup is best
  • Ground Cinnamon: For that warm essence to your honey

The Importance of Raw Honey In this Recipe

Umamiology-Whipped-Honey-BeautyShot8

One thing to keep in mind is that when you whip honey, it’s best to get raw, unfiltered honey.

Some pasteurized or processed honey might have small traces of corn syrup or other additives in the honey. Using these kinds of honey may not result in the best consistency or cause the whipped honey to separate slightly later on.

Whenever possible, try to use real, raw, unfiltered honey – like this one from Nate’s Honey Co or the Kirkland Signature Northwest Raw Unfiltered Honey.

Pour your raw honey into a stand mixer bowl.

Add in just a dash of ground cinnamon, to add that warm, earthy essence to your honey.

Then with the whisk attachment on your mixer, whip the honey on medium speed for about 20 minutes or until the honey reaches the fluffy, whipped consistency you desire. (It took 23 minutes for the honey to reach my preferred level of frothiness.)
