    This is NOT a recipe! The reduced calorie content is dependent on using specific shop brought items.
    Unhelpful to those of us who:
    a) Do not live in the US
    b) Prefer to cook properly from scratch, and not get our food from tins and packets! - 8/6/12

    I used 4 ounces cool whip and 4 ounces plain yogurt just to make it a little healthier. It was very good! I also added a couple tsp corn starch to thicken it a bit. - 10/29/10

    Consistency was excellent, but I would rather go with the extra calories and use a reduced fat cream cheese rather than fat free, which tastes nothing like cream cheese. We tried this with powdered sugar which left an aftertaste I didn't like so I wouldn't recommend using that. - 5/11/09

    Soooooo good!!! Taste just like the real thing! The only thing I changed was I used about 1/3 of the tub of cool whip and only put 1/4 cup Splenda and added a 1/4 cup sugar. We put it on our whole wheat pancakes! EXCELLENT!!! We loved it! - 6/16/08

    So good! Made this for a low calorie carrot cake, and it made that bad cake taste tolerable! I would also use less cool whip next time, since it is a little runny, and makes plenty! YUMMY!!!! - 5/8/08

    Excellent topper for carrot cake!! Only comment would be to maybe not use all 8 oz of cool whip to get a thicker "cream cheese" feel to it. Otherwise, taste and consistency were spot on!! Definitely refridgerate for best consistency. - 4/7/08

  • Try this with Stevia, splenda is horrible for you, and also with Reddi Wip fat free...tastes better and much better for you. - 9/23/13

  • This recipe is fantastic! Made it to frost lemon cupcakes for my girlfriend and she kept sneaking tastes of the frosting. Makes way more than 12 portions! I frosted 24 cupcakes with at least 2T(plenty!) and got about 32 servings total. If you like fruit dip this would be a much lower cal option! - 7/18/12

  • Made this recipe and put on top of a banana cake. I cut the cool whip in half and probably would use lite cream cheese next time. Overall it was good but you could tell it wasnt the real thing. - 4/21/12

    Used regular kool-whip with the fat free creamcheese and put it on a reduced sugar chocolate cake. Didn't really mix well with the cake, but it was GREAT by itself!!
    I recommend making it the day before (texture was still the same and easy to spread). Mine tasted better the next day! - 4/4/10
