Substitute whipped cream for heavy cream.

I have a recipe that calls for heavy cream. I don't have any. I do however have a tub of cool whip. Can i use that instead. If not what is heavy cream and where do I find it? I've never used it before...

    Thanks. I might change it to some ice cream eggnog. I'm wanting to take something to my grandmas for Christmas dinner. I thought the soup might be a good idea. But I'm unsure. Lol.

    Quoting shadow_lark:

    I have never tried it. Good luck!

    Quoting babylove041810:

    I will be attempting to make cream of broccoli soup. It will be my first time making something like that :)

    Quoting shadow_lark:

    Yup. :) what are you making?

    Quoting babylove041810:

    That is pricey. I don't need much though so a small thing should be enough. Thank you!

    Quoting shadow_lark:

    No, I usually use the store brand because its a bit pricey. For an 8 oz container you pay about the same as you would for a gallon of milk.

    Quoting babylove041810:

    Ok. Thank you. :) I didn't want to just try the whipped cream without knowing. Any brand you would recommend?

    Quoting shadow_lark:

    No. You find heavy cream in the dairy section. Its just super thick cream...a bit thicker than milk and full of fat, but no extra ingredients like sugar or vanilla. If you want to go a touch lighter you can use regular cream instead.

    This is true

    Quoting MsRkg:

    No whipped cream and heavy cream are two completely different things. Heavy cream can be found in the milk/dairy aisle.

    No.  They are two completely different things.  You can find heavy cream in the dairy section of the supermarket.
