I tried this recipe solely because I was out of cream, not because of the low calories. But after tasting how great it is, I think I will definitely be making and using this substitute more often in order to help reduce calories. It worked perfectly in my favorite ranch dressing. Thanks!
Do you think you could use this in coffee or tea as a cream substitute? Has anyone tried this?
This is simply AWESOME!!!! I served it with rhubarb compote today and it was just perfect. It is nice and thick just like real cream and tastes great, too. I will surely try this on many other things (like berries, cobblers, pies, etc.)as well and I would also luv to use it for baking. This is a real winner, mama's kitchen! Thanks so much for sharing it with us! Made and reviewed for Bevy Tag May 09.
I served this over sliced bananas for a simple dessert (platanos con crema) and it was wonderful. I can't wait to try this on more things! Thank you for posting Mama! Made for Bev Tag.
When made it has the thick consistency of sour cream but would be very easy to thin if you needed it to be pourable. It retains the cottage flavor but I don't think that it's a problem. I used some straight from the food processor as a taste test on mixed berries. It was very good. If you added some Splenda and vanilla this would be a marvelous dessert topping. I can't wait to try it in a recipe :D
