Cool Whip Substitute

Low Fat Whipped Cream Substitute
Yield is about 4 servings.

If you look in the menu to the left, you will see an article with the ingredients to the real Cool Whip. A condon lubricant?

5oz can organic evaporated milk
2 tbsp cold water
1 tsp unflavored gelatin
2 tbsp Stevia (Not Nutrasweet)
3 tbsp non-hydrogenated corn or safflower oil

First, get the milk to a cold enough temperature to whip. This is easiest done by pouring it into a shallow tray or ice cube trays and placing in the freezer until you see crystals begin to form around the edges.
While the milk is chilling-out, combine the gelatin and water in a small dish, without stirring.
For five minutes, place the dish in a small saucepan containing hot water to allow the gelatin to dissolve.
Remove dish from the hot water and allow it to cool.
Whip the milk in a medium size bowl until stiff peaks form. Gradually add the sugar, oil and then gelatin mixture. Continue beating until stiff peaks form again.
Cover and place in freezer for 10minutes, then transfer to refrigerator.
The mixture will become very stiff. Before serving, stir to soften. Will keep 3 days covered in your refrigerator.

THANK YOU! Cool Whip and similar non dairy whipped toppings are nothing but chemical concoctions and whipped cream is too artery-clogging (but incredibly yummy). I can't WAIT to try this recipe! There are so many fun and easy desserts that I have shunned because of requiring whipped topping. My boyfriend's favorite fruit salad is made with Cool Whip. Now I can make it for him, only healthy! YAY!
