You can make whipped cream and use that. Is this to be used as a topping or as part of the recipe to mix in with other ingredients?

Cool whip is made from shortening, corn syrup, water and chemicals. No one should eat that stuff.

Oh ok thanks Jennyema for the information! I live in the UK and found a dessert recipe that had cool whip in! We don't get it in the UK!

Never trust a recipe that calls for cool whip

I know it is horrible fake stuff, but I love it.

Yeah like Dave said, whipped cream will be your best substitute.

I haven't had cool whip in a while, but it far "outperforms" the stuff in the can. Especially on pumpkin pie. Just sayin'. Give me tub or give me death.

I refuse to eat the stuff. It tastes greasy in my mouth.
