100% Food Storage: Whipped Cream??? Dream Whip!!!


The toddler and I made a recipe today that called for 1 1/4 c heavy whipping cream.  What to do?  What to do?
I came across this issue a couple weeks ago with a different recipe, and had tried to improvise... which wasn't a 'winner'.  

So today - needing whipped cream - I grabbed some evaporated milk and the last bit of heavy cream powder (which doesn't whip up to heavy cream but is only good for cooking and baking... but I was guessing it may be good in the evaporated milk to make it more like cream when I whipped it?)

After I put those into the mixing bowl I suddenly spied something I had totally forgotten I had stocked!!! 

Dream Whip!!!!  AHHHHH. 

Dream Whip - 1 package mixed with 1/2 cup milk and some vanilla equals a substitute for whipped cream or Cool Whip.

I added some packets to the evaporated milk mixture I already had in the bowl.  I *should* have just used the milk I already had mixed and in the refrigerator - which I did use some - but I wouldn't/couldn't waste the can of evaporated milk I already had in the mixing bowl, so we went with it.

A little more vanilla to (taste test) and we were good to go!

Yay for Dream Whip in the food storage.
