Chef's Notes

Size-Wise: Sweets can be part of a balanced diet but remember to keep tabs on portions; How to Thaw COOL WHIP Whipped Topping: The best way to thaw frozen COOL WHIP Whipped Topping is in its container in the refrigerator. Depending on the size tub you have, the thawing time varies. Recommended thawing times are: 8-oz. tub - 4 hours; 12-oz. tub - 5 hours; 16-oz. tub - 6 hours. We DO NOT recommend thawing COOL WHIP Whipped Topping in the microwave; Storing COOL WHIP: Keep a tub of COOL WHIP Whipped Topping in the freezer to use as an easy dessert topping, as a last-minute frosting for cakes or for spooning over cut-up fresh fruit. Once thawed, the whipped topping should be refrigerated and used within 2 weeks. For longer storage, COOL WHIP Whipped Topping can be re-frozen up to five times.


  1. After reading the ingredients I simplified the recipe. In place of the cream cheese milk pudding and cool whip I used one tub of Philly's Ready-To-Eat Cheesecake filling. In addition to the strawberries I added chunks of bananas and a small can of crushed pineapple (drained). In place of the strawberry sauce I used a - Read more ...
  2. This tastes amazing. My only warning is don't freeze it too long or else all the fresh ingredients get freezer burned (the strawberries in particular). I added bananas to mine and used fresh whipped cream instead of Doolwhip. It's yummiest if served the same day after chilling only a couple hours.
  3. Pretty tasty. Not like cheescake but still tasty and great for summer. I used low-fat cream cheese reduced fat pie crust fat free milk and fat free cool whip. After 3 hours it was just barely frozen enough to cut but still soft. Really needed a couple more hours. Best thing was that it was - Read more ...
  4. This recipe is amazing!! I even subbed low-fat ingredients i.e. soy cream cheese reduced fat whipped cream etc. and it still came out fabulous! Served the freeze in waffle bowls for Mother's Day and my friends begged for the recipe!
  5. This was fantastic! I used strawberry perserves and 16 oz of cool whip. I filled waffle cones and then froze. Delicious and very summer-y!
  6. I could have done something wrong but this is a fairly simple recipe so I don't think so. I let it set up in the freezer about 6 hrs. My fresh strawberry pieces were jaw breakers and when I let it sit out so they would melt a little the pudding/cream cheese/cool whip/cookie part turned - Read more ...
  7. This recipe was much better before it was frozen. I also think half a cup of strawberry topping is way too much. I'd make it again with these changes.
  8. Absolutely delightful!:) It was so good. I didn't follow the recipe exactly but I'm so glad I didn't. I just put in the cream cheese a little extra milk the pudding mix and the cool whip and I put it all in a blender with some frozen strawberries and it turned out so good. I - Read more ...
  9. This is a yummy treat! We had fun making it. We forgot to add the strawberry topping and were glad, cuz it was a bit sweeter than we wanted. Extra strawberries, skipping the strawberry topping, and maybe even adding some extra cream cheese next time. We put it in cupcake papers in a muffin pan - Read more ...
