Whipped "Cream" Topping made with powdered coffee creamer

I seem to recall a recipe that used a powdered coffee creamer and either milk or water to whip into a cold whipped topping.

I recently stooped so low as to buy a boxed Key Lime Pie kit, and it contained a powdered mixture that I added water and milk to and whipped into a cool-whip type topping.

So I was wondering if anyone had ever tried this and had luck with it?

Thanks for responding, Connie. :-) I wasn't sure if anyone would!

I will be telling my age, but here goes...

About a "hunnerd" years ago, ha ha, I recall reading on the side of a powdered Coffemate container, the recipe to turn the powder into a whipped topping.

That was about the time the boxed powdered product Dream Whip came out. I think Dream Whip is still available, but kind of hard to find, because when Cool Whip came out, it was more popular. (already prepared, could be frozen, no mixing bowl or beaters required, PLUS the containers became the new generic Tupperware!) :-)

I guess I should try to find the website for the company that manufactures Coffemate and look there.

Rhonda, back about 10 years ago I bought some creamer and oh thwe back it had a recipe and you used the creamer and whipped it into a topping, add a little confectioner's sugar to it and milk, I don't remember how much, but I do remember it is good,, and also a lady that I know( she is in her late 80's) uses coffee creamer in her sweet potato pies and omg it is so good. So if you find the recipe please let me know
