My daughter is lucky. For whatever reason, regular Cool Whip does not cause any allergic reaction for her. Yay! Right? So, when I was reading this blog entry on Cooking During Stolen Moments last week (scroll to the bottom, but read them all) I was anxious to try the frosting/topping. I substituted Tofutti Better than Cream Cheese and it tastes excellent. Even to those of us who are dairy eaters. If you are not lucky enough to use regular Cool Whip, I found this excellent resource on Go Dairy Free that gives a few products to try and some at home recipes (be sure to scroll to the bottom to see whipped topping suggestions).
Not Quite Dairy-Free Cream Cheese Frosting
3 oz Tofutti Better than Cream Cheese
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup Cool Whip (or use on of these dairy-free options -- scroll to bottom)
1. Mix cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla.
2. Fold in Cool Whip.
**This is an excellent topping for berries. I'm going to use it on top of brownies and add strawberries on top.**
