Healthier Substitute for Heavy Cream
You can substitute evaporated milk for heavy cream when you want to trim down a recipe. Evaporated milk is thick and creamy and doesn't curdle when heated the way low-fat milk can. Try it in soup, mac and cheese, or creamed veggies (i.e. creamed corn).
How-to? Simply substitute an equivalent amount of evaporated milk for the cream - if your recipe calls for 1 cup heavy cream, use 1 cup evaporated milk instead.
