    I would like to try a sample but I cannot find your blog. I want to make sure I like the taste before I purchase the product. As I am trying to add more healthy foods into our diet.

    Could I add some cool whip to this recipe to make it go a little farther and have it a little fluffier?

      I have never personally tried adding cool whip to frosting but it sounds delicious! I have heard that you can indeed add cool whip or try using Dream Whip which is a powdered form similar to cool whip. If you do try it, let us know how it turns out for you!
