Easy

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin (see note)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 3/4 cup whipping cream
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Homemade Cool Whip Recipe

  1. Place the water into a very small saucepan and sprinkle gelatin over it. After 2 3 minutes it will form a jelly-like mixture. Place over low heat and stir just until you are sure the gelatin is completely dissolved. Remove from heat and allow to cool (see note).

  2. In a small bowl, stir the cream of tartar into a small amount of the whipping cream and use a whisk to be sure there are no lumps. Pour this into the bowl of an electric mixer, add the remaining cream and begin to whip on medium speed.

  3. As the cream begins to froth, slowly add the sugar and increase speed to high. The cream will begin to increase in volume and thicken. With the machine running, slowly add the gelatin mixture and continue to whip until cream is light and thick, about 2 more minutes.

  4. Use immediately or place into an airtight covered container and store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. This mixture should not be frozen.

Notes

Cream of tartar is a natural ingredient, which increases the size of air bubbles in the cream. The gelatin then will stabilize the mixture and allow the whipped cream to hold its shape for several days.
