Yep, that is Frozen Cool Whip and not homemade ice cream. I didn’t pull out my ice cream maker all summer. Shame on me! But life is busy and frozen Cool Whip is fast, easy, and less calories than homemade ice cream.
Start with Cool Whip then mix in whatever you like to make your own unique flavor. Go on, get creative and let me know how it turns out! It will make you feel like you are at a Cold Stone Creamery or Marble Slab. Just with less guilt of course. The texture is different from ice cream because it is just whipped cream. It is lighter and tastes just as good. Trust me you won’t miss all that sugar.
So that blue container never looked so good. I have even just grabbed a spoonful of the Frozen Cool Whip and peanut butter just to satisfy my sweet tooth cravings. The recipe below is for a full 8 oz. container but keeping an extra container in the freezer is worth it for those small cravings.
Frozen Cool Whip - Almond Joy "Ice Cream"
- 1 8 oz container of Cool Whip
- 1/2 cup lightly toasted coconut toasted is optional
- 1/2 cup hot fudge
- 2 oz package of slivered almonds
In a mixing bowl combine Cool Whip, toasted coconut and slivered almonds.
Fold in hot fudge slowly to give it nice thick chocolate ribbons throughout your Cool Whip.
Place mixture back into original Cool Whip container and put in the freezer for 5 hours.
Get creative and come up with your own mix-ins.
