Can you substitute cool whip for regular whipped cream?

Since I never tasted cool whip and can't buy it, I really don't know how to replace it  Sad

i was never sure either, then i found this

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
The current Cool Whip logo.

Cool Whip is a brand of non-dairy whipped cream substitute named a "whipped topping" by its manufacturer. It is used in North America as a dessert topping and in some no-bake pie recipes. It is generally described as "non-dairy" as it contains no cream or milk and no lactose, however it contains the milk-derivative casein.

You can usually use whipping cream or whipped cream in place of cool whip.

You can't always use cool whip in place of whipping cream.

If you use whipping cream in place of cool whip, make sure it's whipped really stiff.

I would be making some sort of cheescakey-filling... But I guess its no problem changing it there.

When can't you switch the two?


Thanks Cheesy

well..I would think you cant switch from whipped cream to cool whip in general..I make a soup with whipped cream in it..I dont think I could sub for cool whip..

but from what you are looking at it seems as though the whipped cream will work..

good luck..

If the recipe calls for a specific consistency of whipping cream it's not a good idea to use cool whip.  Cool whip only has one consistency.  Sometimes the whipping cream needs to be less stiff.
