I need to top a pie and didn't realize I didn't have Cool Whip.  How do you make whipped cream from skim milk?   Or is it possible?

Thanks

Not possible.  The best byou would get is froth.  The fat molecules in cream are essential for having the air stay in the cream.  Can't do it with skim  milk.

Hi there, bopper! How are you g/f? Good to see you here.

It is possible to make whipped cream with skim milk. It's challenging and will not hold up for long.....but it is doable. I've posted a link for you!

If you have powdered milk you can make whipped "cream". I do it all the time and its delicious! Smile

I found this at http://onlinepastrychef.wordpress.com/2009/02/04/cool_whip_substitute/

not sure of the consistency though.

 

Italian Meringue-This kind of topping won't be as rich as whipped cream or whipped creme fraiche, but it is fat free!  

Take a cup of sugar and put it in a pot with a little water, just enough to get it wet.  Heat and stir to dissolve the sugar, and then bring to a boil.  Put the lid on and let it boil for a couple of minutes to wash any sugar crystals off the sides of the pan.  Bring the sugar syrup up to 245 degrees, F.  While the sugar is coming to temperature, whip 5 egg whites together with a pinch of salt and either a teaspoon of lemon juice or 1/4 teaspoon of cream of tartar.  Whip the whites to medium peaks.  With the mixer on low, slowly and carefully pour the sugar syrup in a thin stream down the inside of the bowl.  Once you've added all the syrup, increase the speed to medium-high and whip until the whites are stiff and glossy and cool.  Flavor it with some vanilla or mint or lemon or any kind of extract.  At the restaurant, we used to pipe little dollops of Italian meringue on parchment and store them in the walk-in freezer.  (They don't get hard in the freezer, they just keep nicely).  Then, when it was time to plate, we'd bring out a frozen dollop and hit it with a torch to brown it.  You don't have to brown this meringue, though.  It's cooked!

I've seen people on QVC and HSN make whipped cream out of skim milk with an immersible blender.  I have no idea how it tastes.   I don't see these immersible blenders being sold anymore so they must not be in style.    Ahhh - gone to that small appliance graveyard along with the fondue pots.

 I still have and use my immersible blender and make whipped cream out of skim milk. I add a little Splenda and it's actually good, especially if you are in the mood to save a few calories.

I have to try the powdered milk whipped cream. I have always loved powdered milk for some reason.

 

Fixed it. ROFL. I must be sitting on my head today.

 You're funny!    Is it powered milk or powdered milk?   I will buy some powered milk if it will give me some energy.   I was thinking about buying an immersion blender until people stopped promoting them.  I'm glad you're happy with yours.
