Notes

*I use whole milk, but you can use 2%, skim milk, etc.
*Personally, I would not freeze Dream Whip because I'm afraid it would change the texture. However, it's quick and easy to mix up and use same day in any recipe.
WHERE TO BUY DREAM WHIP
I buy Dream Whip at Walmart. And my store has it placed in the baking aisle right above the Jello mixes and marshmallows.
ARE DREAM WHIP AND COOL WHIP THE SAME?
While they both make a good dessert topping, they are not quite the same, and I've had better luck making my no bake desserts with Dream Whip rather than Cool Whip.
Cool Whip is pre-whipped and ready to go. Dream Whip, on the other hand, has to be whipped and made. One thing I like is that it's made with sugar and not high fructose corn syrup.
Note: I have tried substituting homemade whipped cream for Dream Whip in my favorite no bake desserts, but they turn out a liquid-y, gooey mess. So, I don't recommend it.
WAYS TO USE DREAM WHIP:
I love making this blueberry delight recipe with Dream Whip and cream cheese. I also make cherry yum yumstrawberry delight, and pumpkin delight.
You can also dip strawberries in Dream Whip, add a dollop to your favorite flavor of Jello, and top pies and Jello cake with Dream Whip.
