I used Cool Whip but you could make up fresh whipped cream if you like.

Thank you. I will definitely make my own. Cool Whip is nothing but all chemicals. Something I try to keep out of my body.

Sodium chloride, tartaric acid, and sodium bicarbonate are chemicals too. Being a chemical doesn't mean it's harmful, especially in moderation. However, I did read the ingredient list of cool whip. Water, vegetable oil, corn syrup, skim milk, and light cream are in the list. All nasty stuff.

I am an avid label reader and I feel so much better since I have started to keep chemicals at a minimum. Ninety-nine percent of my cooking is from scratch. The Oreo pie is for my daughter and her family. Not me.

All food, whether factory-made or homemade, is composed of chemicals and the body is a chemical factory. It would be more accurate to say artificial ingredients.

When I say scratch, I mean scratch. I buy organic when it is available, and I choose my meats with a lot of care. All my veggies and fruit are fresh. Not frozen or canned. It has made a big difference in my body to where I am no longer on medication for my diabetes.

Who are you responding to? And may I ask "Why would you want a sarcastic response directed to you?"

Have you never had a banana split with chocolate syrup on top? A frozen banana dipped in chocolate? Sliced bananas on Count Chocula cereal? A natural. Chocolate and bananas are a natural twosome.
