To make pudding with Cool Whip icing use any flavor of the four-serving size of Jell-O Pudding, an 8-ounce container of Cool Whip and 1 cup of milk. These ingredients should be mixed together and set in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours before serving.
Mixing with an electric mixer allows more air to enter the pudding and results in a pudding that is fluffier and more comparable to mousse. To make the recipe healthier, ingredients can be substituted with easy alternatives. Fat-free milk or skim milk can be used instead of 2 percent milk or whole milk. Sugar-free Jell-O pudding that is also fat free is a healthier alternative that helps cut down on sugar intake. This is a popular option for people who may be diabetic or on restricted diets. Substituting regular Cool Whip with Cool Whip Free is another way to change the nutritional value of this recipe and reduce calories.
For convenience, divide the pudding up among individual containers before cooling. For a different pudding experience, put the Cool Whip pudding in the freezer overnight. Experimenting by combining different flavors, such as strawberry and lemon, can make unique puddings to pair with fresh fruits and granola.
