I know this sounds crazy, but I swear I remember my mom making cool whip from scratch when I was a kid.

does anyone know how or what I need?

I am needing a whipped topping to make frozen pudding parfaits

I believe that Oetker makes a powdered mix for whipped topping. That may be what she used.

Dream whip is also what we have used. You can usually find it in same aisle with the jello and pudding. HTH

There is something that comes in a small container like milk that you add powdered sugar to. Sorry the name eludes me at the moment.

LOL, I like the one you found better. I don't like to buy things for recipes that I don't normally keep as staples. Your find has less ingredients and is simpler. :BigHand:

You mean Heavy Whipping Cream?

I remember seeing on Infomercials where they use Very cold Skim milk?
And for some reason It has to be SKIM milk.

they had this cool whip topping maker they did a special on our local new station "does it work" it works like the reddiwhip cans, you add milk or cream or something like that, he gave it a thumbs up but said you'd have to add some sort of sweetner to it to give it a sweet taste..for the life of me i cant remember what it was called! i think it was one of those infomercial type products

Is there a reason you would want to make the 'topping' instead of real whipped cream?

Whipping cream?

That's real whipped cream, which is far superior to whipped topping, IMO.

I thought the title to this thread was a joke! But now I see making your own coolwhip is real...I'd just always whip real whipping cream (next to the milk at the grocery store) and add some sugar and vanilla to it.
But I bet one of the good things about coolwhip is it probably lasts longer. I wouldn't make a dessert with whipping cream unless I intended to serve it that day...it won't look as nice the next day

I think it was dream whip my mom used to use. but I like the idea of whipping cream or the powdered milk recipe too. I will have to give them a try and see which one holds up better in the freezer.

thanks for all the input gals!

I take heavy cream or whipping cream and just whip it like I'd do to make meringue. Keep at it until it becomes fluffy. Yo'ure putting air into it as you beat it w/ a beater. I put a conservative amt of powdered sugar in it and if i have it, cream of tarter. It is not storable like whipped cream, you ahve to use it on THAT dessert and then throw out what is unused.
