I know that when a recipe calls for "whipped topping" it's code for Cool Whip. I am not a fan of Cool Whip, but want to make a recipe which calls for it. Is there a substitute that I can make or purchase that isn't totally artificial?
Trying to substitute Cool Whip in this recipe:
Banana-Berry Frozen Yogurt Bars
10-½ Honey Maid Honey Graham's, broken into quarters (42 rectangles)
½ cup sliced fresh strawberries
½ cup chopped bananas
¼ cup blueberries
1 cup vanilla nonfat Greek-style yogurt
1 cup thawed frozen reduced-fat whipped topping
- Line 9-inch square pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides. Arrange half the graham pieces, in 3 rows of 7 pieces each, on bottom of pan.
- Pulse fruits in blender just until blended. (Some chunks should remain.) Spoon fruit into medium bowl; stir in yogurt and whipped topping. Spread over graham pieces in pan; top with remaining graham pieces, aligning over graham pieces on bottom layer.
- Freeze 4 hours. Use foil handles to lift dessert from pan; cut between grahams into 21 bars. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
