This was light and airy, faintly vanilla-sweet. Perfect on a slice of cake. It would be lovely with fresh berries and lemon curd, too! You would never guess that it is almost completely fat-free. It reminded me a lot of meringue. Thanks, MechanicalJen! Made for PAC Spring 2008
Finally got to try this. I made it (doubled) early in the day planning to use it with an angelfood cake. I used only one tbls. of refined sugar and one of Splenda. This is how I deal with all recipes using sugar. I found the taste, by itself, just okay, but I was comparing it to fresh whipped cream. Later in the day, I mixed one cup with fresh grapes and orange sections to use as a filling for the cake. The second cup was re-whipped with some orange and some chocolate extract and used to frost the cake. In combination with the added ingredients, came out with a 5 plus star recipe! I am planning on making it again using fresh lime juice to use on a winter fruit salad.
I was so delighted when this turned out! It's pretty amazing to watch it whip (used my Kitchen Aid). the texture is creamy, airy, and reminds me of meringue, too. I used another tbs. of sugar and more vanilla, since the taste was a bit off (but I'm not complaining!). I topped berry cobbler with this and it went great. Thanks Jen, for posting. Roxygirl Roxygirl
