How to substitute cream for other dairy products


La born It is a dairy that appears in many recipes, both sweet and savory, however, sometimes we are interested in exchanging it for an equally good substitute that fulfills the same function.

Provides great texture to many sauces, desserts or savory dishes, it is perfect to season from our favorite cream to our most sweet cake. 

Many people opt for other healthier options because either they cannot take the cream for health reasons or they should not take it for caloric reasons. Whatever your case, we present you some little tricks With which you can get the texture of the cream, have no regrets and good digestion.

Best substitutes for cream

On many occasions we get involved in the kitchen to make a recipe and when we come to a specific ingredient we realize that we do not have it and we cannot continue, if this happens to you, write down these tips to finish the recipe without complications.

  • To thicken a salsa we can use between one and two teaspoons of cornstarch and 200 milliliters of cold skim milk. These two ingredients would mix well with each other and add to the rest of the recipe.
  • To achieve cold sauce we can mix fresh cheese whipped with a tablespoon of skim milk.
  • If you need a substitute to continue with a sponge cake or cupcake you can mix 200 milliliters of milk and a tablespoon of powdered milk, get a homogeneous mixture and add it to the recipe.
  • Finally, if you need a thick mixture that imitates the whipped cream you can get 100 grams of whipped fresh cheese, a white whipped until stiff and sweetener to taste.

An option that can also be seen is to use nata de coco, a vague way out for those who do not consume animal products. Ideally, refrigerate the can of coconut milk and remove the part of the cream once it has set. It can be whipped in the same way as conventional cow's milk cream and add sweetener to taste.
