Awhile ago we received a question from Rose who asked if you could stabilize whipped cream with jello. The answer is yes and as a bonus, it gives it a yummy flavor and pretty color. Rose asked if you would add jello before the cold water, so I assume that she is using something like Dream Whip. I have never tried it with Dream Whip, but I think it would work just fine. I would mix 2-4 tbsp. of jello with the powder and then mix as usual. If anyone tries it with Dream Whip, let us know.
We usually use real cream, so here are the directions for flavoring cream:
Flavored Whipped Cream
1 cup whipping cream
2-4 tbsp. any flavor jello (start with 2 tbsp. and add to desired sweetness)
These are flavored with lemon and raspberry jello
Combine whipping cream and jello. Beat as usual. Serve or store in the fridge.
If you have trouble with some grainy-ness from the jello, combine jello and cream and let sit for a few minutes in the fridge. Then beat as usual.
