    • MYO Heavy Cream Substitute

      Heavy cream is often called for in baked goods recipes and it can be rather expensive to have on hand. Here are a couple different homemade substitutes that work well in place of heavy cream.



      MYO Heavy Cream Substitute

      You'll Need:
      3/4 cup milk (not low fat)
      1/3 cup butter or margarine, melted and cooled

      Directions:
      Combine the ingredients and Use in place of one cup heavy cream.

      *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

      Did you know regular heavy cream has 100 calories and 11 grams of fat per 2 tablespoons? If you are looking to drastically reduce your calories, substituting an equal amount of half-and-half cream for the heavy cream called for in a recipe generally works quite well. Or, alternatively, you can give this low fat heavy cream substitute a try:


      MYO Low-Fat Heavy Cream Substitute

      8 ounces low fat cottage cheese
      3 tablespoons non-fat powdered milk

      Directions

      Combine and in a blender, puree for 3 minutes, use in your favorite recipe calling for heavy cream. This is not meant to replace whipping cream, but can be used in baked goods recipes calling for heavy cream.

      Re: Mix: Lemon Pie-filling Mix

      This is also great spread on top of a lemon cake, then add whipped cream to the top just prior to serving.
