Here is a 5 minute recipe for homemade cool whip in the ol’ KitchenAid mixer.
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1/2 cup powder sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Chill the mixing bowl in the refridgerator that attaches to the KitchenAid for 30 minutes-1 hour prior to making the cool whip.
- To begin, place one cup of heavy cream and vanilla extract in mixing bowl.
- Slowly begin the mixer at speed 4. Pour in the powdered sugar while in 20 second increments turning up the speed to 10. The mixer should take about 1.5 minutes in total to make the whip. Tip: you will know the cool whip is complete when it makes peaks through each spin.
I have run into many recipes lately that call for cool whip. And let me tell you, homemade cool whip is SO much better. My favorite food to pair cool whip with is strawberries for a “semi-healthy snack.” Put a fun twist to your cool whip by adding a few drops of food coloring. For St. Patty’s I made green cool whip and created strawberry shells that look like four leaf clovers… I’m such a sucker for holiday treats!
