I have found heavy cream can be used is an alternative to milk and yogurt in shakes to add delicious, satisfying calories and protein for individuals who need what I call "more bang for the buck" or more calories in a smaller quantity. Can you imagine combining heavy whipping cream, chocolate ice cream, peanut butter and chocolate syrup into a delicious shake that has over 500 calories and 10 grams of protein in just 1 cup? This definitely has a better taste than commercial supplements! To get this and other shake recipes, order your copy of Flavorful Fortified Food - Recipes to Enrich Life today.
Although it's hard to conceive of this, if you don't have heavy cream, you can add 1/3 cups of melted butter to 3/4 cup milk and use it for cooking. This substitution can not be used for whipping.
