[RECIPE] Megs’ Foolproof Cool Whip Ice Cream

Cool WhipWho doesn’t love Cool Whip, am I right? Who sits there at holiday meals and eats it straight from the tub? *raises hand* Remember, admitting the problem is the first step to recovery!

I had read years ago in some teen glamor magazine that supermodels looking to enjoy something sweet without blowing their swizzle stick figure is they freeze Cool Whip and eat it like ice cream. Back up! What? Genius!

A tub of Cool Whip says 2 tablespoons is a serving size. Who on this planet only eats 2 tablespoons of Cool Whip? Are you for real? In this recipe, it serves 5! You actually get a full cup of Cool Whip! For 3 Weight Watchers PointsPlus.

Megs’ Foolproof Cool Whip Ice Cream

Serves: 5 | 3 Weight Watchers PointsPlus


  • 1 12 ounce tub of Cool Whip Free
  • 1 Fiber One Chocolate and Peanut Butter Brownie (or anything else you have on hand. Perhaps a 1/4 cup of chopped nuts, or crushed trail mix, or mini chocolate chips, or pureed fruit of any kind. Or how about your Broiled Brown Sugar Banana you just made?)

Here’s How It Works!

  1. If frozen, make sure your Cool Whip is completely thawed. If thawed, open the tub. Admire the wonder of Whip.
  2. Either scoop your Cool Whip into a large bowl or leave it in the tub (the bowl might make it easier to add your mix-in.)
  3. With my Fiber One brownie, I crumbled it all up into the tub of Cool Whip. Fiber One brownies are pretty crumbly anyway. (Or here you add in anything you have on hand. But I wouldn’t recommend anything over a 1/4 a cup.)
  4. Stir carefully if using the tub so you don’t get your goodness everywhere.
  5. Scoop your Cool Whip creation into five individual serving dishes or Tupperware containers. Cover with plastic wrap. And freeze. The tasty concoction should be frozen solid in three hours or so. Perhaps less.
  6. Enjoy your 3 point ice cream instead of busting on a 28 point pint of Ben & Jerry’s Half-Baked! (And we all would eat the entire pint, no joke.)

Note: When the Cool Whip freezes it pretty much turns into concrete. So you’ll have to enjoy your creation slowly as it thaws.

Now You Try!

      Thanks! Dad and I have been going through it like crazy. I whipped up a batch with strawberry puree last night. Just a bit ago I did a batch with chopped up 4 Weight Watchers mini peppermint patties. OMG. Might be the best batch yet. Next one I’m planning is peach puree. :9
