Substitution For Heavy Whipping Cream

I was making a caramel sauce and needed 3 tablespoons of heavy whipping cream and did not have any, so I substituted 6 tablespoons of whipped dessert topping and it worked fine.

Substitution For Heavy Whipping Cream

Let me get this clear, do you mean Cool Whip or canned Whipped cream, like Reddi Whip?

This is a substitution for Whipping cream that I have picked up from someone, but have never tried it. Thought I would share it with you.

Whipped Carnation Evaporated Milk Topping:

Sweeten evaporated milk with powdered sugar and a touch of vanilla before whipping it into a foamy topping for coca, pie or fresh fruit. A bit of gelatin will give it staying power for a beautiful presentation.

  • 1 Cup Carnation Evaporated Milk
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

    Pour evaporated milk into small mixer bowl; place beaters into mixture. Freeze for about 30 minutes or until ice crystals form around edge of bowl.


    Beat on high speed for 1 minute or until very frothy. Gradually add sugar and vanilla extract; continue beating for 2 minutes until mixture is stiff. Serve immediately spooned over fresh fruit or your favorite dessert.

    NOTE: For whipped Nestle carnation evaporated milk that holds up to 30 minutes; sprinkle 1 teaspoon gelatin over 2 tablespoons water in small, microwave safe bowl; let stand for 2 minutes. Microwave on high (100%) power for 40 seconds, stir. Let stand for additional 2 minutes or until dissolved. Pour 1 cup Nestle Carnation Evaporated Milk or Evaporated Fat Free Milk and dissolved gelatin into small mixer bowl; follow recipe for Whipped Topping. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate for up to 30 minutes. (11/18/2008)
