Low Calorie Ingredients for whips
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.

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 whipped peanut butter
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.
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:
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!
Put your whipped peanut butter into the freezer for a few hours, until they can come out of the silicone cups safely.
Then, you can drizzle some sugar free chocolate syrup on top and eat!
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!!

Going to try
Have you tried adding Lily’s chocolate chips to this recipe?
Oh yes! Great idea. I made this recipe before I knew about Lily’s! I will definitely try it.
4 of these with Pb fit and lite whipped topping is 32 points so that’s 8 pts a piece not 2
oh my! You are right. thanks for letting me know. I fixed it!
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?
are you using the new personal points calculator? The points are different for different people.
Here’s a link to it though and it will recalculate for you.
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.
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.
Have you tried cocoa powder instead of peanut butter powder?
I haven’t but that sounds amazing!!
I have never tried this but it looks easy and delicious. My husband loves peanut butter so much and I am sure he will love this! Thanks for sharing!
Hi.i am out of cupcake liners.cant get to store.what else could I store them in ??thank you
Do you have a muffin tin? You could line it with parchment paper.
Can I use regular p butter from a jar?and if so how many tablespoons?thanks
I haven’t tried it Becca- you will add 100 calories, but I would just start with 1 tablespoon!
Can you use a peanut butter protein powder instead of regular peanut butter powder?
That’s an interesting idea- I hadn’t even considered it! I don’t have any peanut butter protein powder to test it, but if you do, let me know!
Can you please tell me calories vs. kcal.. when I googled it it comes back with outrageous calorie count. Thank you
Generally, in the non-research world, they are interchangeable!
1 kilocalorie equals 1 calorie
I love cool whip too!! Must be our generation!
