Can evaporated milk be used in place of heavy cream?

Answer

Evaporated milk with vanilla extract can be used in place of heavy cream. The milk should be chilled first, after which the vanilla extract can be added until the desired taste is achieved. This substitute works well for cream soup recipes.

Another substitute for heavy cream in recipes is Greek yogurt according to the New Health Guide, but using this will also reduce the fat in the dish. It may be necessary to use a mixture that is half yogurt and half whole milk to preserve taste when making breads or cookies or half yogurt and half heavy cream in texture-critical foods like cheesecake. Low heat should be used if Greek yogurt is used to make a sauce as yogurt curdles if heated too quickly.
