Sorry, this just didn't work out for us. After beating it for 15 minutes on high speed, I finally had a creamy smooth texture. I put it in the fridge and when we went to use it a couple of hours later, it had a very airy, whipped "jello" texture. That would have been fine, but the taste is a VERY powdered milk flavor.

This works fairly well, make certain you whip it up on the highest speed your mixer can go for a good 5 to 10 minutes and it fluffs up nicely.

I found that it's a good idea to use it fairly quickly. After sitting for the while it seemed to gel up quite stiffly. Was able to re-whip it for 5 to 10 minutes and get it back to a nice creamy texture again however. Good to experiment with and works great when mixed into a mousse.

P.S. to my review-I posted the photo so you could see the "airy" texture I mentioned.

We made this recipe last year, I thought the flavor was ok, and it didn't turn out as fluffy as store-bought, there wasn't enough air whipped in, and as the review described, once it sat for a while, it deflated, and you really had to whip it again.
