Thanks for the feedback!
Yes, of course you can! You can use either milk or almond milk when you are baking, because your pastry will become creamier and healthier than using eggs. You can also us…e lowfat vanilla yogurt to make it healthier, and/or creamier.
Yes! used in the Pacific Islands during world war 2. To clarify, coconut milk (made from the meat of the coconut) can not be used as a substitute for blood plasma. It is the c…oconut water (found inside young coconuts) that can.
Diluted coconut cream (dilute by about 1/3, but the packet will usually have directions on diluting). There are no more close substitutes apart from that.
In theory, if you mix the can of evaporated milk with an equal amount of water, you have conventional milk, as evaporated milk is milk with 1/2 of the water removed.
No, it will not give the same flavour. Coconut water is a thin, watery liquid that tastes sugary but not incredibly coconutty. Coconut milk has the pulp added and is a t…hick, white, creamy liquid with a strong coconut flavour.
of course it can though it works better in cupcakes i think,
No, coconut milk is very different in thickness, taste, and texture and is completely different from coconut water.
No, coconut milk and evaporated milk have very different consistencies. Evaporated milk is milk that has about 60% of the water removed which is why it is so thick. Coconut mi…lk is a much more watery milk, which has a coconut flavor. A good substitute for evaporated milk would be using dry milk powder and adding only 40% of the water recommended, or else use buttermilk. Hope this helps.
For one cup of milk use 1 cup soy milk or 1 cup rice milk or 1 cup water or juice or 1/4 cup dry milk powder plus 1 cup water or 2/3 cup evaporated milk plus 1/3 cup water
absolutely, have done it for years
Yes. Coconut cream and coconut milk is made from fresh shredded coconuts that are than pressed to release the liquid. The only difference being coconut cream is the first pres…s and the most pure, while coconut milk usually has some water added to get the last of the liquid out. You can think of it in the same way as Extra Virgin Olive Oil and normal Olive Oil. With EVO being the first press and normal Olive Oil being the second.
For the liquid and the fat content. If you use water instead, things tend to be crusty on top.
No, but you can substitute milk with almond, rice, coconut, or hazelnut milk.
Probably not, they're both very different consistencies and fat contents. A better substitution would be butter.
