Does anyone make pseudo-milk from Heavy Whipping Cream?

If yes, how? Just mix the cream with water? What is your ratio of cream to water? Do you add anything else?

Would love to hear ideas!

I am considering it but Half and Half would in fact have more milk in it since its a combination of Half Cream and Half Milk (or more) not Half Cream Half Water.

My current go-to shake is unflavored casein (two 30gm scoops - about 50gm protein), 3 tablespoons of grassfed whipping cream, unsweetened cocoa, and cinnamon - water to thin it out (casein is like pudding if you don't wet it enough). Stuff is AWE-to-the-SOME.

Yeah dairy products leave most people look kind of puffy- like you're retaining some subcutaneous water. It won't really matter though till you get down to sub 10% body fat. I'm not saying cut it out all the time, I'm just saying be aware that it does have an effect on aesthetics, that's all.

Kefir has almost no lactose & lots of beneficial bacteria. Works well for me & I am lactose-intolerant.

I have and it causes me problems. It looks like Heavy Whipping Cream has a little more fat in 1oz than full fat milk does in a 8oz glass. This means even if I mix 2-3oz with water to make a 8oz glass it would still have significant lower lactose/casein. That's what I understand anyway.

The only thing I ever use to dilute heavy cream is coffee. The result is most excellent!

You could mix 1T heavy whipping cream with 20g casein and 10g whey protein and get something pretty descent alternative to milk for lean muscle gain (IMHO, the sugars in milk are not good for leaning out- and neither is the fat for getting a certain "dry" look).

Sounds to me like you are looking for Half-n-Half? You can buy that at the store :)

I do for cooking and baking. If a recipe calls for milk or half-and-half and all I have is cream, I'll usually dilute it ~2/3 parts cream and ~1/3 part water. I'm not making anything that requires exact fat content- usually it's for a sauce- so I'm not overly concerned with accuracy. I don't ever just drink it though, not sure what ratio you'd use for that.

We do enjoy homemade icecream occasionally, and my recipe calls for 2 cups cream and 1 cup milk. I sub half-and-half or diluted cream for the milk- creamier and maybe a little less of an insulinogenic response... though I'm sure the white sugar takes care of that anyway!

Have you tried full fat whole milk? it is said to have lower amounts of lactose/caseins than skin or 2%, 1% milk. Similar to cream but not watered down like you would be if converting cream to milk
