  1. This is such a lovely recipe. Thanks for sharing this with us. Just one quick question, is the cool whip is similar to whipping cream.

    Regards,

  2. As Liane already said Cool Whip and sour cream are US food products. If you live outside of the United States, it may be more difficult to obtain them.

    Manjula uses US ingredients and products for many parts of her recipes.

  3. Sour cream is not something you can make at home.

    Sour Cream and Cool whip are both products that are available readily in the United States.

    Sour Cream us available in the dairy department and has many different uses.

    Cool Whip is available in the frozen dessert section and is often used in desserts as toppings, etc…

  4. Hi. I saw your recipe but i don’t get sour cream where I live. Could you pls tell me how to make sour cream at home? Thank you.

  5. Thank you so much for the tips on utilizing cream, sour cream and or whipped cream for fruit salad. I live in GA. Here we have a buffet which makes an awesome fresh quartered apples with cream. I usually add raisins and cranberries. I like it so much, I bought all three to try and see which one will taste the best. Thanks, LMG

    1. Cool Whip is available in any grocery store in the refrigerated dairy section. Ask a store clerk if you cannot find it.

  6. Hello Manjula ji,

    I had made this fruit cream using your recipe, I couldn’t find sour cream so i skipped it. I also added few drops of pineapple essence in whipped cream, it turned out to be outstanding. Also i powdered the sugar first before adding it in cream..
    Thanks & Regards

  8. Hello aunty,ur measurements are very accurate .aunty I have one question.I m staying in India.what can I use in place of whip cream and sour cream?

  9. If you want you can try adding different flavors of ice creams too…that way you can make strawberry/vanilla/coffee flavored fruit cream.

    1. Hi Kiran,
      Nice idea, my friend added white chocolate chips and vanilla cake ( all in layers) along with jelly ( no custard) to make a super trifle.The rest of the recipe is like Manjula’s. Simply yum! The white chocolate chips get chilled and provide a nice crunch. You’ve got to try it!!

  11. hi aunty,

    i want to know what is the substitute of cool whip, i am in UK
    here v get whipped cream and double thich cream

    Waiting for ur reply

    Take care
    kanika

    1. Cool Whip is sweetened whipped cream. Use in the UK whatever they put on the top of desserts. Cool Whip is just a company name.

      1. Hey Kanika,
        Try buying the double cream and then whipping it yourself using the blender till you get a thick consistency. The whipping cream that you get in the shops is far too thin and doesn’t match the consistency of Cool Whip (I’ve used both cool whip and double cream)

        Hope this helps!

  12. Hi Manjula Ji,

    I am too located in San diego. ;-). well yesterday i prepared Fruit cream. Please let me know for how long i can keep it. i prepared a lot and today i found some water in remaining fruit cream. is this something needs to be finished with in one day?.

    Thanks

    1. Making your own whipped cream is easy and the flavor and texture leaves the store-bought stuff in the dust (that stuff is usually neither whipped nor cream). How to make your own delicious homemade whipped cream in 5 minutes.
      Difficulty: Easy
      Time Required: 5 minutes
      Here’s How:
      Put cold heavy cream and flavorings in mixing bowl. Avoid ultra-pasteurized cream if possible (see tip below). Try 1 to 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract per cup of cream, and 1 to 2 tablespoons of sugar equivalent such as Splenda or Equal. Adjust to taste. Other extracts or flavorings (such as mint or chocolate) can be used as well.
      With standing mixer with whisk attachment or electric hand mixer, beat cream (you can use a hand whisk; it just will take longer). Start slowly — if you set it on high at first, you’ll have cream all over the place. Set the mixer so it goes as fast as possible without splashing.
      As cream thickens, turn the speed up. As it gets foamier, start checking for a soft peak, which is what you want. The peak should bend over at the top when you remove the whisk. As it gets close, slow down, because if it goes too far, it will clump and separate (essentially become butter).
      If you forget to adjust flavorings, you can still do it at this point. Ta-da! Whipped cream!

  13. hey i made this and it was a big hit in my house.my kid and hubby finished it before i knew……thanks for the recipe

    1. “Cool Whip” is the brand name of a sweetened whipped cream sold in a container (not the kind from a spray can).

      You can buy whipping cream from the dairy section of the store and make your own if you have an electric mixer. Just add a few spoons of sugar before mixing depending on how much whipping cream you’re using.

  14. Has anyone made this yet? Please post if you have. I’m curious how cool whip and sour cream taste together. Thanks.
