The day before Thanksgiving I saw a lot of people talking about going out and getting their cool whip for Thanksgiving and how Cool Whip was necessary for pie.

Now don’t get me wrong, I love whipped cream but Cool Whip is NOT whipped cream. It is whipped toxic crap.

Ingredients in Cool Whip: (From Wikipedia)” Cool Whip Original is made of waterhydrogenated vegetable oil (including coconut and palm oils), high fructose corn syrupcorn syrupskim milklight cream, and less than 2% sodium caseinate (a milk derivative), natural and artificial flavorxanthan and guar gums, polysorbate 60sorbitan monostearate, and beta carotene (as a coloring).[4] In some markets, such as Canada and the United States, Cool Whip is available in an aerosol can using nitrous oxide as a propellant. Cool Whip was formerly marketed as non-dairy, but in Jewish dietary traditions, Cool Whip was classified as dairy rather than parve (non-meat and non-dairy) because of the sodium caseinate (which is derived from milk). Cool Whip now contains milk and cream.”

Feel free to look up the health effects of these ingredients one.by.one. I promise you will avoid cool whip from here on out.

Being on a Paleo/GAPSish diet I try to avoid milk when possible. I am not as strict as some are BUT I try to replace it where I can. I posted my recipe for regular whipped cream on my Facebook page and a lot of people said you can easily make homemade coconut whipped cream.

Do you want my recipe for Coconut Whipped Cream?

Homemade Coconut Whipped Cream
Author: Amanda at Natural Living Mamma
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Ingredients
  • 1 Can Organic Coconut Milk with the least amount of additives possible.
  • 1 Tbsp Honey or sugar of choice
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla Extract (try my homemade version)
Instructions
  1. Take your can of coconut milk and put it in the refrigerator long enough to solidify the top layer. We keep our home cold so it took about 2 hours.
  2. Open the can and scrape the solid coconut cream off of the top. Leave the clear liquid in the bottom in the can. You do not want to use that or it will not whip up properly.
  3. Use a hand mixer or a stand mixer and mix on high for 5-10 minutes until the cream forms soft peaks.
  4. This keeps well in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. It could keep longer but it has never lasted longer than 3 days in my home.

Easy as pie! Easier in fact. But it is delicious on some Grain Free Pumpkin Pie with some nice locally roasted Organic, Fair Trade coffee.

What is your favorite treat to have whipped cream with?
