Light "Whipped Cream"
An extremely versatile surrogate whipped cream. It provides the finishing touch for bread pudding, crisps, cobblers, angel food cake--anything that you would normally slather with whipped cream.
Whipping Evaporated Fat-Free Milk
When thoroughly chilled, canned evaporated fat-free milk whips up into a light frothy topping that can be used as a substitute for whipped cream. Before beating, place it in a mixing bowl in the freezer until ice crystals form around edge of bowl, about 30 minutes. Chill beater also. Whipped cream will usually double in volume, but evaporated fat-free milk will triple. The air bubbles dissipate quickly, so it works best in mousses that are bound with gelatin or frozen. Evaporated fat-free milk has a distinctive flavor, which can overpower delicate dishes. It works best when combined with vibrant flavors.
