Heavy Cream Substitute

When you need a cream substitute for your coffee or even desserts, this recipe is my go-to!
This is great for people who can’t drink dairy. Instead, this little recipe uses soymilk!

Soymilk is great in that it has all nine essential amino acids! That’s impressive as far as plants go. Soymilk has also been linked to lower risk of heart disease, osteoporosis, and even help reduce menopausal symptoms!

A side note for the chocolate lovers, you can also add cocoa powder for a tasty chocolate cream.


  • 1 1/2 Tbsp fine cornmeal
  • 125ml soymilk, unsweetened (sweetened is fine)
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 tsp maple syrup, or more to taste
  • 2 oz margarine


  • Add the cornmeal in a small pan
  • Add the soymilk a little at a time, mixing carefully to remove lumps
  • Add the vanilla essence and maple syrup
  • Heat on low, stirring gently and continuously until the mixture thickens
  • Remove from heat
  • Bathe the pan in cold water to let cool
  • In a small bowl, mash the margarine with a fork till it begins to cream
  • Start adding cooled cornmeal mixture, continuing to mix till you have a rich. smooth. creamy consistency (hand-mixers work great here)
  • If it’s too thick, thin extra soymilk. But be careful not to add too much
  • Refrigerate till needed



  • GFCF – gluten free casein free
  • SF – soy  free
