Berry Easy Topping

A creamy, flavorful topping that works for pound cake, shortcake, coffee cake, waffles or pancakes.


  • 1 cup raspberries, frozen or fresh (blackberries can also be used)
  • 1 cup light or fat-free Cool Whip, thawed in refrigerator
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
  • Pinch cinnamon (add more to taste)


  1. Add all ingredients to a medium serving bowl and stir well with spoon.
  2. Keep covered in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Will keep for about 8 hours; after that, the moisture inside the berries may leak into the mixture.

4 servings (1/2-cup each)
