I have a sweet tooth. Is anyone surprised? I’ve never been shy about my love for all things sugar. As I’ve been doing this Paleo challenge, I’ve found that my sweet tooth can easily be satisfied with just a little fruit. Maybe you can outwit your sweet tooth, but that doesn’t mean I’ve given up on all desserts forever. Though fruit is good for now, sometimes I do miss that extra little bit, just something else to add on top of my berries. I’ve always, always been a fan of COOL WHIP Whipped Topping. I remember always having it in the house when I was younger, and dipping my spoon into that plastic tub when I didn’t think anyone was looking. I have no shame.
One of my favorite ways to eat COOL WHIP is a little bit appalling honestly. I’m a big fan of the ice cream sundae, sans ice cream. Yes, you read that right. I like an ice cream sundae without the ice cream. I find that using COOL WHIP as the base instead of ice cream, then pouring on the toppings, is the perfect way to satisfy that craving for ice cream, that doesn’t leave me feeling miserable afterwards like ice cream often does! It makes a weeknight just a little more special, without making me feeling like I am completely and totally blowing my healthy eating. COOL WHIP reminds me of being a little girl, always having it at home, and always having that spoon handy!
Sometimes I keep it simple-a little bit of COOL WHIP, some fruit and a drizzle of chocolate. However, sometimes I like to have a whole lot of fun, and pretend I’m a kid again. I’m talking chocolate chips, caramel sauce, sprinkles, the whole bit. To get that ice cream feeling just as it should be, I have even been known to freeze the whole tub of COOL WHIP and eat it at that consistency. It isn’t as creamy as it is coming out of the refrigerator, but there’s something just right about it.
I wish I could have gotten it together to make my mom’s cranberry mousse to share in this post too, but I just never did. A whole tub of COOL WHIP, cranberries, and who knows what else. It’s tart, creamy, delicious and the perfect topping for turkey! This is a family favorite that I hope to continue through the generations!
What about you? How do you enjoy COOL WHIP? Straight from the container, whipped into a fabulous pie, or the ever classy “ice cream” sundae?
