Does Anyone Make Milk With Heavy Cream

If so, can you tell me the measurements for the cream and water?

Thanks

I have done it in recipe before. The taste was never an issue when using it that way.

I always sub half water/half cream in any recipe calling for milk.

As far as just drinking it though I dunno - I've not tried it that way!

Ditto on what Char said.

I usually use half water and half cream to make "milk", but I wonder if that much cream is really necessary. I looked up whole milk at the USDA site:

1 CUP WHOLE MILK
146 calories
8 grams fat

The closest I can get calorie and fat-wise to the equivalent of 1 cup of milk would be:

1 1/2 tablespoons heavy cream + 14 1/2 tablespoons water
154 calories
16.5 grams fat

I don't know if 1 1/2 tablespoons is enough to make it seem "milk-like" or not. I'll have to try it once and see.

I've used half cream, half water for cereal before. It's been so long since I've had 'real' milk, I didn't notice much difference. Special K protein cereal, a little splenda and the mix...was good. Don't know about drinking it like milk though.

For baking, I use around half cream and half water, a bit more diluted for sweet custards...even more diluted than that for quiches.

For drinking, the mouthfeel of cream and water is all wrong IMO. If I'm jonesing for milk, I'll drink some vanilla whey protein mix...my brand is from Walmart, "Soy Fortress" brand. 1 carb per serving. A little sweet, but I definitely like it better than cream and water.

When you add water to cream you lose the protein and lactose content. And my assumption is that you lose the taste of lactose. Cream is only a concentration of the milk fat.

100 grams of whole milk has 3.2g protein, 3.9g of fat, and 4.8g of lactose. 100 grams of whole cream has 3g protein, 19g fat, and 4g of lactose.

But this is a low carbohydrate forum so maybe that is what you all want. I have gotten some free nonfat dry milk, I am going to mix it with water and cream to get whole milk.

Hi Speck…
When I fire up my Espresso machine, I mix cream with water 50/50 to steam, as it has ˝ the carbs and all the smooth mouthfeel.

We have a very serious espresso rig…

For me, cream has a greasy mouthfeel. I use 1/4 c. half & half; 3/4 c. water; pinch ea. of salt and Splenda; 4 t. dry milk powder. Blend with a stick blender. It's hard to tell it from "regular" milk. Many thanks to CarolynF for starting the "milk" thread!
