I also like making Homemade Whipped Cream for the top instead of buying cool whip, but you can use either one!

If I am in a pinch and don’t have time to make whipped cream I will use cool whip. This dessert travels well and you can make it ahead of time. Just keep it in the fridge until ready to use and don’t put the whipped cream on until ready to eat. This is a great no-bake dessert that everyone will love.

Be sure to give this patriotic dessert recipe a try. It is perfect for family picnics and barbecues. I like to serve it in a clear bowl to really showcase the red, white and blue colors.
