I am looking for a low fat plant based substitute for evaporated canned milk. Many recipes substitute canned coconut milk or PB half and half. Both are high in fat and give everything a coconut flavor. Any alternatives?

— Cathy Chapman


So, you know the the quick answer here would be to use a powdered plant milk and you can find products like oat based products and and there are others that you can then mix with water to create a plant-based milk, but you can adjust that that consistency in terms of the the flavor intensity for example, even the viscosity to a certain extent and so that might be your best approach to this particular situation and then you know with a product like that, you know, you can take it in a Savory or sweet direction. Of course by adding a favorite sweetener of yours often a liquid sweetener works well with these liquid based products Okay. Thank you.
