How to make non-fat whipped topping recipe
This recipe will have a dreamy light topping ready for your spring and summer desserts in a flash.
I have it shown in the preparation of a tropical yogurt layered parfait using fresh mango and raspberry purees and some dragon fruit cubed up for fun (dragon fruit doesn't really taste like anything, does it?) That post is linked further down in the post along with more low-calorie sweet treat ideas so you can keep your eating and goals on track.
Makes 10 servings
Ingredients to make nonfat whipped topping
- 1/2 c. nonfat dry milk powder
- 1/4 c. ice water (have more ice on hand to chill the bowl and beaters)
- 1/4 c. powdered sugar
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 3 Tbsp lemon juice (bottled is fine)
In mixing bowl of electric mixer add ice and some water along with the blades to chill them well while you gather ingredients.
Empty ice water from bowl and add in 1/4 c ice water and the milk powder and blend on high speed until soft peaks begin to form. This will take 2-4 minutes depending on your mixer.
Add in remaining ingredients and continue to mix on high speed until firm, another 2-3 minutes.
Use soon after making. This mixture breaks down like whipped egg whites would, slowly changing texture and letting off liquid after about 90 minutes - 2 hours. Trust me it is not appealing at that point like it is when it's freshly made.
You can top weight watchers zero point cheesecake with the nonfat whipped cream recipe too.
Due to lack of fat it is not as stable as regular whipped cream. It should be served and consumed as soon as it is prepared.
