"I made Â½ batch of this to use in recipe #36634 . As others have said, it works beautifully in a cream sauce! It took nowhere near 5 minutes (more like 1 minute ) to get thick and fluffy. It blended into the sauce quickly with no graininess. That said, the uncooked taste was not like heavy cream. The powdered milk whang was very predominant. I would not hesitate to use this again in a cooked dish but would be skeptical of using it an uncooked dish where the taste would be more evident. Thanks for posting a recipe that I am sure to use time and time again!"
"I'm not gonna rate this because I think something went wrong when I made it. Everything went ok until I added it to my pasta dish (which I had cooled somewhat) when it curdled and went rather disgusting! Clearly I've made a grievous error somewhere as noone else has had that problem, so I will have to try again at some point."
"So I love this idea but I'm with Wendy-Bob I used this one time in a pasta dish and it was perfect.<br/><br/>I used it again in a slightly cooled pasta dish (removed from the heat) and it curdled and got gross. Not sure what I did differently. If you can get it to work for you it's perfect. I'm going to keep trying and next time I'll either temper in some hot liquid or try nuking it in the microwave for a few seconds to heat before stirring it in."
"Love this! Worked well in my recipe. Thank you for this great recipe."
"This was really terrific. I used it in place of half-and-half in Northwest Salmon Chower (from TasteofHome.com--very good) and it couldn't have been better. I had only fat-free cottage cheese and it was still wonderful. Thanks so much for the recipe."
"This was a great substitute for heavy cream when I didn't have any and didn't feel like getting any when I only needed a small amount. I did this in my food processor and it didn't come out as smooth but still worked for the soup I made. Thanks!"
"I will use this again and again. I added 3 tbs of non fat creamo to thin it out a bit but depending on what I am using it for I may or may not do that again. Thanks for sharing."
"Used this recipe in Chicken Lazone recipe. It was great, I too was a little leary of using a substitute ,but this is definatly a keeper."
"I am sooo glad to have found this recipe! I used this to make fettucine alfredo last night and my son didn't have a clue that it wasn't the usual 'heart attack on a plate' alfredo. It was so AWESOME to eat it without feeling like I had to run longer on the treadmill to make up for the indulgence. Thank you so much!"
"What a find! I can't believe how great this is. WONDERFUL texture; I had no graininess at all; it was wonderfully thick and smooth. I made this up to use in a creamed spinach recipe, but I'm now thinking of all sorts of uses -- and I'm going to try the grand science experiment this summer, and use it to make ice cream. Thanks so much for posting this!"
"Just used this to make Butter Chicken from Recipe 88578 on this site. It worked beautifully. This stuff whips up very thickly, almost like whipped cream or pudding and it incorporates into the sauce very well. I had no graininess at all, though I did use the high speed on my blender (which did not like running for 5 minutes!). Highly recommended. Thanks for posting. I will use this often."
"I use this all the time in Indian sauce dishes to slash the fat cotent. The taste is identical -- the only difference is in texture, which can be slightly slightly grainy sometimes. Still well worth the trade-off -- especially because it is easy to prep."
"I used this for the first time in Olive Garden Stuffed Chicken Marsala (Recipe #206581) and it tasted great. I found a recipe on another site that I was going to use that used ricotta, tapioca and water, but this is much more simple and my other one took one hr. Thank you very much, now I can make recipes that need hvy cream."
"I found this little gem of a recipe one day and I have used it several times with no problems. I have only used it in cooked dishes so I dont know how it would perform otherwise."
"I was a little sceptical if this working, as well, but based on others reviews I thought I'd give it a shot. I used it in recipe #234645 and it worked very well. I'll use this again, without hesitation, in other cream based dishes. Thank you for sharing this."
"I really wanted this to work and was a little skeptical at first but I was very pleased with the outcome!! After pureeing the ingredients the substitute is much thicker than heavy cream but works well after being completely incorporated into the dish. I used it in place of cream for Chicken Sausage Farfalle (#193880) with very tasty results. No one will ever guess that it is cottage cheese! Thanks!"
"Worked great! I used this for http://www.recipezaar.com/32735 and I couldn't taste a difference. Thanks, I'll use this recipe more often!"
"Worked like a charm! Thanks!"
"The first time I used this was in a recipe where the heavy cream was a minor ingredient- and I couldn't tell the difference. This time I used it as the base for "Olive Garden Alfredo Sauce" Recipe #59913. I've made enough alfredo sauces to know that this substitute changed the texture a bit, but the flavor was terrific! Well worth it to lower the fat content of one of the most artery-clogging (and tastiest) sauces known to man!"
"VERY GOOD! I used this as the cream in the recipe Superlicious Bacon mushroom pasta # 27212 and it turned out excellent! I will be using this again and again! Thanks for sharing."
