Healthy Substitute for Whipped Cream?

Does anyone have any ideas for healthier substitutes for whipped cream, other than Cool Whip (which apparently most Serious Eats readers seem to really dislike...)? While I love the taste and texture of real whipped cream, and will use it for special occasions, I don't particularly like how high in fat and calories it is. And while I don't personally have an issue with the taste of Cool Whip (or any other whipped topping), I don't like the use of hydrogenated oils and high fructose corn syrup in it. So any ideas on how I can have my cake (or in this case, whipped cream) and eat it too?
