This is one of those viral TikTok ideas that seems a little too good to be true. Can whipping honey really turn it into something even more magical?

The answer is yes. Whipping the honey takes some time, but it’s worth every minute. It creates a smooth, decadent and pourable honey topping that is somewhere between syrup and your favorite icing or glaze recipes.

When we set out to create our whipped honey, we studied all the available information to achieve the best results. We tested both raw honey and regular. Raw honey has a thicker consistency and will maintain air pockets longer.

Ultimately, I achieved the same results – luxuriously light and creamy honey that you’ll want to spread onto everything! I can think of so many ways to enjoy it. Add it to a butter board, spread it over pancakes or biscuits, swirl it into a cup of tea… you get the picture.

We love everything honey, and this one is no exception. Let’s make it together today!

Tips

  • The difference between whipping honey 10, 15 and 25 minutes is negligible.
  • There’s an old metal myth about honey – the idea that you can’t use a metal beater with it. It’s untrue – the metal would need to remain in the honey for long periods of time to create a problem.
  • While whipped honey is a great way to use the crystallized honey left at the bottom of a bottle, you can use any honey you’d like!

Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the difference between whipped honey and creamed honey?

Whipped honey (also called aerated honey or spun honey) is aerated to achieve a fluffy, softer consistency to be pourable. The whipping process traps air to create a lighter, frothy finish.
Creamed honey is made through the process of crystallization of honey. It has a more velvety texture, and is gently stirred instead of whipping. It’s more spreadable, whereas whipped honey is pourable.

How long will whipped honey stay aerated?

Whipped honey can be stored for several weeks at room temperature. If it begins to settle again, or crystallize, it can be re-whipped to pull in more air.

How to Store

  • Room Temperature – Whipped honey can be stored in an airtight container in a cool, dark place (pantry or cabinet) for 2-3 weeks. While it will eventually begin to deflate, you can easily re-whip it, as it doesn’t go bad.
  • Refrigerator – You can store your whipped honey in the refrigerator to extend its life, but be sure to use a container with a tight fitting lid to prevent extra moisture. It will eventually solidify.
  • Freezer – While it is safe to freeze honey, it’s not necessary.
