Ingredients Nutrition


  1. You will need: 1 SMALL Cuisinart (If you are making this for a party, then large Cuisinart would work. But if this is just for you use the small Cuisinart).
  2. Dump berries into the Cuisinart first.
  3. Add the packet of sweetener of your choice.
  4. (If you don't like sweets too much, you can skip this step.).
  5. Cover the berries and sweetener with the Carb Countdown Dairy beverage.
  6. Leave enough space under the lid because this stuff REALLY, REALLY fluffs up!
  7. Put the cover on and Blend in short spurts.
  8. About 30-60 seconds depending on how smooth you want the fruit to be.
  9. The longer you blend this the fluffier this will come out.
  10. For a beverage, scoop this out into a glass and pour some more Carb Countdown directly into glass to thin out mixture and drink.
  11. For a "Cool Whip" like topping, take a spatula and scrape out the mixture and add to your dessert and smooth out artistically to make a beautiful, tasty topping.
  12. To make this into ice cream, scrape out mixture and pour into a bowl and place in freezer for 30-60 minutes depending on how firm you like your ice cream.
  13. Eat and enjoy.

I introduced this to my mom and sister and it has become a staple in our house. I HAVE TO HAVE my strawberry smoothie whenever Carb Countdown is on sale.

This makes a great, simple snack; as a smoothie, it is fat-free (when fat-free Hood is used) and VERY low-calorie. The Hood Carb Countdown milk becomes much creamier than regular or soy milk, making it ideal for a whipped smoothie. I initially tried to make the Cool Whip version with strawberries, but left it in the freezer for too long, so it was a bit frostier than I had hoped. :x My favorite way to enjoy this treat is as a frothy smoothie made with frozen banana chunks instead of berries.

I have to say...I was doubting that this would really make a cool-whip type mix, but I tried it and I have to say it works! However, I discovered that it only whips up into the cool whip texture when the Hood Countdown Beverage is cold. Let it warm on the counter a little and all you will get is a yummy shake type drink. Still, I am definately putting this recipe in my "Tried and True" cookbook. Thank you so much for posting.
