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.

I just made this hoping to get something close to whipped topping and I think something is off with the recipe. I followed it very carefully. It turned out very thick and gelatin like versus airy and light. I ended up adding much more skim milk and that definitely improved the texture. Either there is too much gelatin (1 teaspoon) or there's not enough milk (1/2 cup). I ended up adding 2/3 of a cup more milk. Also I don't know if the skim milk powder is needed but it added a chemical after taste to the whipped topping. I'm curious if this whipped topping would work without it?
