this might do in a pinch, used the same day it is made, perhaps more freezer time. I did not care for the texture more like loose jello than creaminess of "cool whip" I tasted the milk and sugar granules after it had been sitting 3 days in the fridge, next time I will try dissolving milk before whipping and increase whipping time after adding sugar.

Mine separated the gelatin made a milky jello on the bottom and there was an oily cream on top.

This was so-so, I followed the recipe to a 't' after mixing at high speed for 15 minutes, I never got stiff peaks and it was still pretty runny. The taste was OK, the mixture was sort-of grey and it was generally flat and runny. I guess all those chemicals in Cool Whip are there for a reason!
Emma July 7, 2007 REVIEW:
I disagree with the first reviewer. This is a great option for at home whipped topping with staple ingredients. Thanks!

This is not anywhere close to the creaminess of real Cool Whip. However, it is a palatable substitute. Also, the color was a little off; kind of greyish off-white.
Fruit salad can serve multiple purposes. It can be a casual side dish, a kid-friendly healthy snack, or an elegant dessert. Get creative with tropical or exotic fruits like star fruit or lychees, or keep it simple with a fruit cocktail type salad.
