Alright, I am set to mix whipped cream with a sugar free instand pudding (trying to add flavor!) On the pudding box, it states it will not set up with soy milk. I planned to use almond milk; is it going to make a difference? My dad is diabetic so attempting to make an anglefood cake with a flavorful whipped icing...something a bit different for him. TIA
AUse half the amount of milk the recipe calls for and it should work. That's what I did for my kids when we made worms and dirt using almond milk.
Thanks for your quick response!! I will go ahead with the almond milk.
Late response, but I had almond milk and instant sugar-free pudding on hand. I used half the amount as recommended above, and it set up extremely thick - probably even gloppy LOL. I could have used the entire amount, so almond milk does work!
Thanks for your response! I did end up using just one cup of almond milk and a box of sugar free instant pudding. It did set up real thick...but once I stirred in 8 oz. of sugar free cool whip, it wasn't as thick as I had hoped it would be. After icing the cake with it, I put it in the freezer until I left for the folks...they said it was good and kept the remaining cake in the fridge. It seems like the icing slid down the cake sides.
I will try again with another combination.
Made chocolate instant pudding using almond milk and it doesn't seem like it will set thick. Is there a way to fix that? Maybe by adding more mix? Should I have used less almond milk? If cannot fix, what could it be use with, maybe in a cake or something.
sounds like you need to add more pudding mix to thicken it up. I have not tried any....personally I don't alike almond milk - I use goat milk and it works just fine. I bet the problem is little or no fat in the almond milk
I did that and it seems like it is okay. I used large chocolate using 3 cups milk. Added a small box and no more milk and it worked. So 3 cups of milk instead of 5 as for regular milk. Will have to remember that next time. I never used almond milk before but it was on sale for $1.50 for half a gallon one day. So I decided to try it. Tastes different but okay.
Thank you for your reply.
