Hi! Can I substitute a non-dairy creamer for heavy whipping cream in a chocolate crusting frosting? Someone in my family is lactose intolerant and the frosting that I want to use for mother's day calls for heavy whipping cream. Thanks for the help!
For icing I don't see why not.
Thanks! Do you think it would work as a substitute for ganache if I decided to do that instead?
No. Not for ganache. Sorry. The cream is essential to the making of ganache
I think you might be better off looking for a soy replacement. I've had some success making truffles with cashew/macadamia butter but that might need thinning somewhat. I know that cashew cream is what millenium uses a lot in their desserts to mimic cream.
Thanks for the tips! I really appreciate it!
I have replaced the heavy whipping cream in ganache with liquid Rich's bettercreme.....they do sell a trully "non dairy" version of it, but I haven't actually tried that one in ganache
