Heavy Cream Substitute/Low Fat Substitute

Amy Alusa


When a recipe calls for a specific ingredient, if you want it to come out like it says it will;you at the very least have to follow the recipe. Subs. should only be made in extreme cases; when you CANNOT get the item specified in the recipe. Some subs. don't work as well in some recipes as others. That being said; this recipe was given to me and I have used it in recipes calling for heavy cream very successfully. However, when I tried "whipping" the cream, it did not work at all. The fat from the milk just joined the butterfat and separated from the milk...Heavy cream, it is; Whipped it is not

    Combine in a blender.
    Puree for 5 minutes.
