Peanut Butter Whip ingredients

This classic Weight Watchers recipe only needs two ingredients for these peanut butter whips. The first is peanut butter powder, and the second is cool whip.

  • Peanut butter powder: As a dessert, Peanut butter powder is a great substitute for regular peanut butter because it has fewer calories and less fat. Perfect for peanut butter whips! 2 tablespoons of peanut butter has 180 calories, and 16 grams of fat. Peanut butter powder on the other hand has 70 calories for 2 tablespoons and 2 grams of fat.While I’m not anti-dietary fat, I do try to cut calories where I can, and fat is the most calorie dense macronutrient of them all. So, generally, when I lower fat in a recipe, calories will come down as well. Check out my strategy for portion controlled peanut butter eating, frozen peanut butter!!
  • Light Cool Whip First of all, fun fact: I’ve been a fan of Cool Whip since I was a child in the 70’s! (Cool whip actually came onto market in 1966!) I was so in love with the whipped topping, that by the time I got to high school, and the very first home computers were launched, my first ever password was COOL WHIP! I love cool whip so much, that if I have a tub of it in the fridge, I’ll literally eat it within days. With a spoon. But I digress!Cool Whip is interesting, because there are several varieties at the grocery store. But what’s more interesting is the cool whip nutrition information.The different varieties of Cool Whip are all so VERY close in calories! Each 2 tablespoon serving of the different varieties of cool whip look like this for calories and macros: (My Cool whip nutrition source)
  • Cool Whip Original: 25 calories, 1.5 g fat, 3 g carbs, and 0 g protein
  • Cool Whip Fat Free: 15 calories, 0 g fat, 3 g carbs, 0 g protein
  • Cool Whip Extra Creamy: 25 calories, 2 g fat, 2 g carbs, 0 g protein
  • Cool Whip Light: 20 calories, 0.5 g fat, 3 g carbs, 0 g protein
  • Cool Whip Sugar free: 20 calories, 1 g fat, 3 g carbs, and 0 g protein
  • Cool Whip Birthday Cake! (umm.. I haven’t seen this one in my grocery store yet!!) 25 calories, 1.5 g fat, 3 g carbs, 0 g protein
  • Cool Whip Oreo (Again!! Where has this one been all my life?) 35 calories, 2 g fat, 4 g carbs, and 0 g protien

So, as you can see, there isn’t too much difference in the calories of the light and regular Cool Whip. And the carbs in cool whip are identical in all of them, even the sugar free! Kind of crazy.

But, when you use a full cup of cool whip, which is what this recipe for peanut butter whips uses, it does save you 40 calories.

Total calories saved = 150 calories for the entire recipe. (110 calories from swapping peanut butter with peanut butter powder, and 40 calories for the Cool Whip

How to make Peanut Butter Cool Whip Mousse

Step 1: A lot like a peanut butter mousse, this Freezer peanut butter whip starts with reconstituting the peanut butter powder with water. I used 4 tablespoons of peanut butter powder with three tablespoons of water.

Step 2: Then, simply and gently fold in the light cool whip. I tried blending it with a hand mixer, but it just lost all it’s volume. While delicious, suddenly ALL the calories were concentrated into one muffin cup. LOL *here’s a picture of that first attempt:

Step 3: After folding in the cool whip, pipe into silicone muffin cups. If you can get four servings out of this, our calories and macros will match!

Step 4: Put your whipped peanut butter into the freezer for a few hours, until they can come out of the silicone cups safely.

Step 5: Then, you can drizzle some sugar free chocolate syrup on top and eat!

Step 6: If you leave in the freezer too long, it will be rock solid. Just sit it out on the counter for 10 minutes, and it will soften up enough to eat it.

To get the full effect, I added a quick video inside the recipe card below!!

How to serve Peanut Butter Mousse

While you want your peanut butter mousse to keep it’s shape and be able to hold it, you don’t want it frozen solid. There’s a fine balance. The perfect way to serve it is mostly frozen, but easily pricked with a fork.

How to store Whipped Peanut Butter

The only way to store the whipped peanut butter is in the freezer. Leave it there in a covered container until you are ready to eat. Then, remove from the freezer and let sit out for about 10 minutes for it to soften.

2 ingredient freezer peanut butter whips - Low calorie treat

    I thought they were great! When I am watching my weight I have to control my sweet tooth. I used generic brands of both the PB and whipped topping. They had just the right sweet flavor. I almost ate the mixture 🀭. Thank you. I struggle with adoration of sweets. This is going to help tremendously!

  2. The ones I have left over, do I keep them in the freezer or can they be left in the refrigerator? Also, I totally forgot to mix the pb powder with the water, will this change the flavor?

    1. OMG this is my plan. I’m so glad someone asked about this. I love checking the comments. I am also using sugar free cool whip because I am diabetic. It has been a Godsend!!!!!!

    1. I have no idea how you came up with 32 points. It’s 75 calories for ONE. Powdered pb 4 tbs = 2 pts, cup of cool whip lite = 10 pts that comes to 12 for the entire batch divided by 4 and I get 3 points per. What am I missing?

  3. If I make this with real whipped cream will the peanut powder still be the same amount?
    and I guess I would add a little bit of some kind of sweetener.

    1. I’m not sure it would work. The cool whip has some fillers that keep the form creamy. Real whipped cream breaks down very easily, and won’t keep it’s shape.
