Powdered Milk Whipped Topping

whipped cream

Who needs super fatty whipped cream or worse, transfat and sugar laden “whipped topping”?  News of powdered skim milk helping to reduce the incidence of painful gout flareups caused me to go in search of ways to work this cheap ingredient in.  This won’t fool the full fat palate nor provide the pleasure of it but it will give an option to those who are trying to reduce calories and/or inflammation.

½ cup water

½ cup instant dry milk powder

1 tbsp maple syrup

1 tsp lemon juice

½ tsp vanilla


Put water into a large bowl and place it in your freezer. When ice crystals form around the edges remove it from the freezer, add instant dry milk powder. Whip the mixture with electric beaters until it is light and fluffy. Add maple syrup, lemon juice and vanilla. Beat until thick enough to spoon like whipped topping. Use immediately.

I love food, try to watch my weight, know more than I want to about healthy living (sometimes I wish I knew less so I wouldn’t feel so guilty when I stumble), am a daughter, sister, friend, mom and wife who worries and scurries the meals onto the table. It is for all these reasons that I completed my nutrition, RNCP designation, wrote my book, hosted my Food Network show, consult with food companies to urge them to get it right (or at least better), constantly write about it, research it, all of this so I can cut through the nutrition and food “news” clutter. Happy to share with friends!
