Have you ever tried a citrus espuma foam? I love light and airy desserts in the summer time especially if they are loaded with fresh fruit.  I rarely eat heavy desserts like cakes once the warmer weather has arrived. Generally, I don’t want to heat up the oven baking a dessert when it’s already hot outside.

Citrus Espuma Foam on Fresh Strawberries

 I recently had the chance to try a Culinary Whipper from Espuma is a Spanish word that means foam.  You can make a light airy foam called an espuma with the use of a siphon bottle or culinary whipper.

The Siphon R-Evolution kit from Molecule-R has everything that you need to create mousses, whipped creams, espumas, and more. It includes the culinary whipper or siphon. It also includes the N20 gas cartridges, gelatin, agar agar, xanthan gum, decorative nozzles, the cleaning device, and 10-recipe booklet.   The kit includes five sachets of all three different additives. Plus, it has five N20 canisters. When you need more additives or canisters, you can purchase them from the site directly.  Once the N20 canisters are empty, they can be recycled.

I was quite surprised to see how easy it is to use the siphon.  I had expected it to be quite difficult. These desserts sound so exotic to me.  The step-by-step directions included with the product make it very easy to create a variety of recipes.  I had no idea that there were actually espumas that were not desserts.  I learned that I can make a Parmesan Espuma and even a Caesar Salad Espuma or a tomato foam. So, I can’t wait to try another recipe.

Molecule-R offers a variety of different products that will let you learn all about molecular gastronomy.  So, if you’re not familiar with the term:

You can define molecular gastronomy as the fusion of food science and culinary arts. New technologies and natural texturing agents can now be used to deconstruct any dishes and cocktails. This lets you serve mojito bubbles and martini bites. Or try balsamic vinegar pearls and chocolate spaghettis.

If you’re looking for a way to wow your guests this summer, you definitely need to pick up the Siphon R-Evolution kit. And, you can find it on Amazon.

    I'm not a fan of whipped cream but that looks so yummy because I love strawberries! I think I'll try this for my mother though, she would love it as a nice healthy snack!

      It's definitely not the same as whipped cream. It's lighter and more airy and the citrus gives it just the right taste.
  8. oh my gosh, I want one of those!
  9. this looks really cool! I have seen these on food shows but never realized I could buy one myself!
  10. I bet that tastes as good as it looks! I love dipping fruit in yogurt and whipped cream, espuma sounds like the best of both. I have not heard of it before and now I want to try it!
    • Ellen Christian says
      It was really good... somewhat lighter than whipped cream or yogurt and not quite so sweet. Just perfect with fresh strawberries.

  15. That just looks so delicious
  16. this sounds so delicious i would love to have one now :) 
  17. I have never had a dessert like this but this looks amazing. Spring hasn't shown up yet, and I am DYING for fresh fruit over here.
