What Is The Best Evaporated Milk Substitute?
0

18 posts in this topic

I have an AMAZING pumpkin pie family recipe which calls for Evaporated Milk.

Does anyone know a good substitute for this?

One of my major food intollerances is dairy, and being that this is my first gluten-free Thanksgiving, I need to do some experimenting now before I have guests around my table.

I used vanilla flavored soymilk, which seemed to work fine. I was going to try to condense it down to 50% first, but didn't have time to setup a low temp vacuum evaporator. :lol:

When I was avoiding dairy, I used vanilla almond milk. I used less, though--a little more than half the amount of evaporated milk called for.

I, too, am very dairy intolerant. I have been experimenting with making cream sauces. The best luck I've had so far is by add Sour Cream and Cream Cheese alternatives along with the soymilk. Of course the soymilk needs to be added as the heat is being turned off as it seperates under the heat. I turn down the heat to get the sour cream and cream cheese stirred in and melted and then add the soymilk. I can't imagine them hurting the taste of pumpkin pie at all. I would go ahead and use the vanilla soymilk and perhaps add just a drop or so of vanilla to help enhance the vanilla flavor without thinning down your filling too much.

I boil down almond milk (could totally use soy, but I try to not have too much soy) until it's thicker. Takes a little while, but you can do it way ahead of time. Works fabulously!

You can also make an Evaporated Equivalent to Evaporated Milk by using Soy or Rice Powder....

I have seen some at my local health food store...

Equivalent: Approximately 2 cups of Evaporated Milk

Ingredients:

* 1 cup Soy or Rice Milk Powder

* 1 cup Boiling Water

Directions: Combine the two ingredients in a blender, and blend until well mixed.

I don't know about the rest of you but, the "Amazing Pumpkin Pie recipe" needs to be posted! I can always use something "amazing" in my bag of tricks

Please, post!

My family has been making this recipe for years. I am trying to adapt it to my new needs before Thanksgiving this year.

First of all... the pumpkin. Choose small pumpkins which are raised specifically for eating, they have a better flavor. You can also use any kind of winter squash, and a blend of 2 or 3 different ones is very tasty!

Wash the raw fruit very well, as you do not want any dirt getting into it. Cut the pumpkin into quarters and bake it in a 400 degree over for about an hour, you will want to cover it with foil to keep it from browning too much. When it is done, let it cool, then remove the outer hard shell and mash the pulp until smooth just like potatoes.

Now it is ready to make into pie and other recipes just like canned only better!

Ingredients for pumpkin pie:

3 C Pumpkin pulp

1.5 cups sugar or less, I usually use a blend of both brown and white sugar mixed (or xylitol)

1 tsp salt

2.5 tsp ground cinnamon

1.5 tsp ground ginger

1 tsp nutmeg

.75 tsp ground cloves

1 tsp Allspice

.75 tsp ground mace

6 slightly beaten eggs

1 egg white mixed with a little water (you can just add the extra yolk to the rest of the eggs)

2.5 c milk

2 6oz cans Evaporated (not condensed) milk

2 9-inch deep dish pie shells unbaked (you may have enough filling to fill a few small baking desert dishes as well.)

Set oven to 400 degrees

Using a pastry brush paint the edges of the pie crusts with the egg white, this will help keep them from getting too dark.

Combine all other ingredients and mix very thoroughly. set Empty pie crusts on a cookie sheet lined with foil to help minimize mess, set on oven rack and fill the pie crusts as full as possible. Carefully slide them into the oven. Bake for 50-60min. center will still look a bit liquidy. To know for sure insert a knife halfway between the crust and the center, it should come out clean.

Let pies cool completely before cutting. Serve with real whipped cream.

I've always used soy milk and no one noticed the difference but I wonder if coconut milk added would be thicker and really good? I've been using it in a lot of dishes and it's good in everything so far.

This won't help if it is a dairy intolerance, but I used heavy cream and it was delicious.

Yup, I am intollerant to all the good comfort food stuff (you know, all the things that Thanksgiving is about): Gluten, Dairy, eggs and soy.

It was sad for me at first. I am Itallian, I love pasta and cheese. Darn.

This was just posted the other day.

If you look down the page where the recipe is right after it she talks about subs

http://glutenfreeeasily.com/crustless-glut...ee-pumpkin-pie/

"If you want to make this pie dairy-free, a dairy-free milk like coconut milk should work just fine."

Good Luck

I have found a non-dairy heavy whipping cream in our freezer section at our local grocery store. It does have casein in it but no dairy. I use it in making homemade non-dairy ice cream and it works great. Hope this helps.

I had to google this, because I could not imagine a product which contains casein being "non-dairy", and this is what I found:

2006/02/20: Evidently the dairy inspectors require

that milk-similar items without milk (but with casein!) are labelled

as non-dairy to avoid confusing the consumer! They're worried about

the consumer who is hoping to get milk product and doesn't - and

those of us with allergies are screwed.

So anyone who is "dairy intolerant" rather than "lactose intolerant", beware! Talk about confusing the consumer!!!

Thanks! Does sound 'amazing" I assume the secret is using the fresh pumpkin. The Food Network cooks are always harping on fresh ingredients-I guess I'll see this year!

If and only if you can do sheep's milk yogurt, the plain kind could work--you may have to thin it some with water.

I make pumpkin pies all the time.  I just use the coconut milk in the can.  It works great and doesn't taste at all like coconut.

    • Thank you so much. 8-12 weeks! Oh my goodness, I don't think I can do that. I think going gluten-free made my body's defenses go down or something. I felt bad before, but reintroducing it was completely awful! I still feel queezy a few days later. Let's pray it just comes back positive. lol
    • Thanks for the feedback!  Gemini you're very right - surgery was a totally weird recommendation.  My current doctor treated me without hormones because my TSH levels are normal. The doctor found that my Vitamin D levels were severely low and put me on a high dose. They climbed just out of the deficient range. I am very active and frequently outdoors,  and they still only climb out of deficient If i'm on intensive VIitamin D supplementation.  -  In addition, She also suggested I  a modified lower carb diet (I'm at a healthy weight, there was no reduction in calories, just an increase in protein and fat and a reduction in carbs,  a low reduction, slightly above the recommendations for a diabetic), which the doctor recommended for PCOS.  Both of these coincided correlated with a slight reduction in the anti-thyroid antibodies and a slight reduction in nodule size. My TSH levels have remained stable, so it was incorrect to say function, really just a reduction in the level of attack (but the thyroid levels are still high).  The doctor that recommended surgery did so because "you're about to start college and you won't have time for monitoring,  it will eventually fail. If we remove it now, you can just go on Synthroid and you'll never have to deal with the levels being out of whack."  Yeah.... I was 18 then.... I'm now 27, but my Mom just went "NOPE!" and got a second opinion.  This person was fine, but all he did was monitor to make sure the TSH levels stayed ok.  They did, I just have a goiter and several nodules.  The most recent endo. I've seen, who put me on intensive Vitamin D therapy and worked with me on the diet,  felt like she was thorough (again minus completely dismissing the first celiac results. I think the D supplementation and diet were associated with a decrease (but obviously didn't and really couldn't reverse the outcome of the disease) in antibodies and nodule size because my TSH levels have yet to get out of whack. I also wonder if with fewer carbs, I ate less (thought still too much If I'm celiac) gluten, and  that could have been more a factor in the correlation.  Gemini- I'm glad that you have found a good treatment that keeps your levels where they need to be!  I also really appreciate the welcome. Update:  I have a referral to a GI specialist! I don't want to have Celiac... I love to travel, and I'm very social. I live in the US but my family is from Uruguay, South America, so I carry this Latin Cultural thing about loving to share food and seeing it as such a huge part of hospitality and community.  I know that food in social settings gets hard to navigate...But I feel a sense of relief to think that I might have an answer to other health questions and that there is a way that I can stop or at least slow damage.   
    • These can be sourced from various ingredients one being wheat. Please check with the manufacture of your products to figure out if they contain gluten or how they are made....and yes gluten in your makeup, and especially lotion, shower gel, etc is a huge issues. Consider this, gluten contamination can happen from gluten protein residue. How often would you touch your arms, hair, etc or use your hands and touch your food, plate, fork, spoon before putting it in your mouth? Do you bite your nails, sometimes pick up a mint or gum? Hate to say it this way but if you use gluten containing stuff like that shit will happen with cross contamination. Consider changing over to a dedicated gluten-free version of hygiene products and save your self the drama. I use EO products, The Seaweed Co, Savvy Naturals, Hugo Naturals, and Vaseline products products without issues personally.       
    • I had an enlarged thyroid, but no nodules. Dr felt it and ultrasound confirmed. I had so many symptoms of hypothyroid- weight gain, fatigue, hoarse voice-couldn't yell or sing or swallow (still can't swallow, but mostly at the bottom end. Used to not be able to get it past my neck, either) brain fog so that I couldn't form a complete sentence or respond with any timeliness, cold all the time, etc. Dr was in his 70's and old school. He didn't do any further blood tests or anything. Just said to take iodine. So, I started taking iodine. By the next year, different dr, all my thyroid tests came back normal, it wasn't enlarged anymore and most of my symptoms were very much improved. Read "Iodine: Why you need it and can't live without it" Kinda boring and repetitive, but good info. Iodine Crisis by Lynne Farrow is also really good. (She talks more about breast cancer than thyroid. But, the iodine information & history is great.)

    • Ok can anyone please shed light on this subject! I been reading conflicting information. Do I really need to be concerned about products that contain these two ingredients in them like my face products and my body lotions and shower gels?  If I'm not ingesting them can they really hurt me?  Only been diagnosed for three weeks with celiac and I'm trying so hard to follow the guidelines but this seems to be a gray area.  I also check on the list of unsafe ingredients and I don't see them listed there so whats the scoop?  Safe or unsafe please help!!!!
