I stumbled across this icing alternative the other day, and it’s remarkably good for being so simple. I’m amazed at the properties of cool whip, it really CAN do anything. This alternative has much less sugar than your average icing or frosting, and is easy to make, and versatile. You can make different flavors and different colors, just like your typical frosting or icing.


(I don’t take credit at all on the photo, for some reason my camera on my phone wouldn’t focus when I tried to take a pic of mine. It may have been too white and just washed out too much.)

It’s as simple as this;

1. Mix one instant pudding packet (flavor of your choice), with HALF of the milk called for on the package.

2. Whisk it until it begins to thicken.

3. Then, fold in one container of cool whip. You can use light or regular cool whip here.

4. Optional; If you want, you can add a few drops of your choice of food coloring to change the color for frosting cakes, etc.

This recipe is good for frosting cakes, icing anything that needs icing (Haha), and you can also use it as a topping or filling for waffles and crepes, just add some fresh fruit or a fruit sauce of your choice!
