Does non dairy heavy whipping cream substitute well?
Unfortunately, we had a difficult time with the Silk non dairy heavy whipping cream. It works great in soups and stuff, but we like Nutpods just as well to thicken chowders and soups. Nutpods does not whip like heavy whipping cream but we felt like the Silk non dairy heavy whipping cream brand unfortunately didn't either. We looked online for tips and tricks for getting Silk non dairy heavy whipping cream to whip and it just never panned out. We tried it cold, room temperature, etc and it curdled every time we tried to whip it. It did okay making ice cream in the ice cream maker, but didn't hold up making the easy no churn ice cream recipe that uses heavy whipping cream, sweetened condensed milk and vanilla.
