If you’re like me and forget the main ingredient of your homemade alfredo sauce at the store….fret no more! Today i’m sharing my homemade heavy whipping cream substitute that you can make. It is rich and creamy but do know that you cannot turn it into whipped cream like the regular stuff (there’s not enough fat.) Make sure to try our popular fettucine alfredo recipe!
The key to making this is to have both ingredients warm, otherwise the butter will curdle as soon as it hits the cold milk! Read more FAQ here.
Heavy Whipping Cream Substitute
- ⅓ cup butter approx. 5 TBSP
- ⅔ cup whole milk
- Melt butter in a saucepan then add the milk and stir over medium low heat until combined. (You can also use the microwave and melt butter, heat up milk for 20 seconds and combine)
- Use in place of 1 cup heavy whipping cream in your recipe.
