A healthier alternative for ‘Cool Whip’ in this recipe is to use heavy whipping cream with a cane or organic sugar. For extra stiffness, add a tablespoon of instant vanilla pudding when you’re whipping the cream. Adding instant vanilla pudding prevents the watery texture in the whipping cream making it firm which is something you want in this recipe. You can also use condensed milk with organic whipping cream or try beating cream cheese together with sugar. If you wish to make vanilla pudding from scratch, it is very easy to do it. All you need is eggs, plain milk or heavy cream, cornstarch and sugar. Just beat them together on the stove top and cook until it thickens. Then add vanilla extract and let it cook a little more until the pudding is thick. You’ll begin to smell the delicious vanilla scent and notice thick pudding texture all in under fifteen minutes. Making homemade pudding will not only taste better but also it is a healthier option compared to instant pudding mix that has artificial flavors and not to mention preservatives in it.
