In honor of the $1,500 worth of Preparedness Giveaway this month I thought I’d pass along one of my favorite recipes using this great shelf-stable dairy product combined with some of my favorite freeze-dried fruits. If you didn’t know, Spiff-E-Whip is one of the 65 different prizes being given away for this special event!
Spiff-E-Whip is definitely one of my “must have products”. It’s got no fat and only 2 grams of carbohydrates per serving. I can turn it into a pie filling, pudding, fluffy topping, chocolate mousse, or a frosting with nothing more than water and a little whisking.
When I use freeze-dried fruit in this recipe instead of frozen, the fruit tastes nice, fresh, and plump, not mushy. I couldn’t believe it when I first tried it. I could have sworn that fresh produce was put into the dish right before I took a bite! Using the same water which I reconstitute the fruit in is one of my ways to make the dish a little bit more flavorful, and depending on what fruit you use, it also gives it a little bit of festive color. I like to use freshly grated orange zest, but I have made it with dried orange zest before to satisfactory reviews—after all, I may not always have fresh orange zest available, right?
One of the nice things about this recipe is that Five Star Preparedness is offering Spiff-E-Whip as one of its group buy specials this month. Even better, they are offering it in a #10 can. I’m excited about that because I can only get it from the local stores and manufacture in the smaller 20 ounce size. So I definitely plan on snagging several. Be sure to enter to win in the $1,500 Preparedness Giveaway often and you could snag some for FREE!!!
Freeze-Dried Spiff-E Fruit Mousse
Take 3 cups of your favorite freeze-dried fruits. (I prefer to mix strawberries, blueberries, and pineapple.)
Place them in a bowl or a pitcher and then cover them in 3 cups of very cold water. Let stand for about 15 minutes.
Drain the fruit, reserving the liquids from the fruit reconstitution.
In a separate bowl, mix together 2 Cups of Spiff-E-Whip and 1 ½ cups of the reserved liquid from the fruit. Mix on high with an electric mixer until creamy and fluffy. Add 1 teaspoon of almond extract. Gently fold in the drained reconstituted fruits.
Dish into small dessert dishes and top with about 1 tablespoon of freshly grated orange zest.
Makes 6 to 8 servings

OOOhhh!! That sounds good! I can't wait to try it! I'm all about the low carb/low fat but particularly the sugar free stuff! Bring it on!
Where can someone in Illinois get Spiff-E Whip? Is there a place to order on-line? Is it available in Texas?
Augason Farms (dot com) or Five Star Preparedness (.com) have it. Five Star has it in #10 cans at a special group buy price this month. You can't buy it in a #10 can anywhere else--not even at the manufacturer, Augason Farms.
Sounds divine. I'm all about low carb and sugar free too. What is it made from? Is it an edible oil product like Cool Whip?
Boy, that sounds delicious. My family loves cool whip and this sounds just about like it.
I am really trying to find out what the ingredients are of this wonder product. Any idea??? Hope it is not corn syrup!!!!
all you have to do is Google--
Ingredients: cane sugar, partially hydrogenated soy bean oil, corn syrup solids, sodium caseinate, ester of fatty acid, modified food starch, mono and di-glycerides, cellulose gum, sea salt, natural and artificial flavors, lecithin, carrageenan.
I could almost taste it as you were describing it - mine was strawberry :) YUMMY
Sounds good...those blueberries look wonderful also!
Sadly you can't buy it up here in Canada.....along with so many other things you lucky Americans have at your finger tips! LOL!
But when I went down there with my parents this past Oct. for Conference, I JUMPED at the chance to buy some. Along with many other items you mention on this blog. I LOVE your blog for this reason. I have a huge list of items to find and buy outside of my country. And THANKFULLY it wasn't taken away from me at the border. I was SO worried about that. ; D
Thanks for the AWESOME recipe ideas!
I have never heard of this before - sounds like a very great thing to have on hand all the time!
Looking forward to getting some of this. Sounds so good.
Sounds yummy! I would love some more recipes for this, especially anything chocolate! Thanks!
I bought some of this stuff after you talked so highly of it at a class of yours, but haven't known exactly how to use it. Silly me for buying something and not using it. Guess I've got a long ways to go, eh? But now at least I can check this one off the list. Thanks.
So, I think you have me convinced to try some!
Thanks for the great idea!
Wow! Thank you for the recipe, and the information. This sounds like a good, cool, summer dessert.
How about some more recipes.
Where do you get the dried orange zest?
orange zest is available in any spice section of the grocery store.
