Half & Half is half whole milk, half heavy cream. I've never tried to dilute Half & Half into milk, but I've diluted cream into "milk." With cream, I do basically a one to one measurement. With Half & Half, I would assume you would do a four to one or three to one dilution.

Before I found the Carb Countdown milk I would use half and half. I would use a quart of half and half and mix with equal parts water. Add a teaspoon of splenda, mix well and chill overnight. It was yummy....about 4carbs for 6oz.

I don't get it--why put Splenda in it? Seems like an unneccesary waste of carbs to me--and kind of a bad idea in general, to get accustomed to milk tasting sweet.

The Splenda is a substitute for the lactose in regular milk and adds that subtle milk "sweetness."

The original recipe (or something very similar) came from Low Carb Luxury website. I used this recipe before the low carb milks came on the market and was very surprised at just how good it was. I used it as a substitute for milk in recipes, since I'm not a straight milk drinker.

Actually, I'm very glad this recipe was posted! I had lost it and was wondering about the proportions of water to half and half. I wrote the low carb luxury website, but the website creator is too busy, I guess, to answer any questions.

This is a wonderful recipe to have on hand, when you need "milk" in a pinch and you're out of the low carb stuff, but have half and half on hand.

Tee-bird, thank you so much for posting it!
