Casey Said:Does condensed soy or rice milk work well in recipes?
We Answered:Acille1jo and Lillyian are both correct that coconut milk works well for baking when the coconut flavor won't detract from the finished product. The fats in coconut oil are NOT bad fats! Yes, they're saturated fats but they're in a form the body can use instead of unusable long-chain fats that clog arteries.
On to your question<g>, bean milk (like soy) works quite well in any form (liquid, evaporated, condensed)! Liquid grain milk (like rice) can work, but it takes a lot of trial and error with *each* recipe to work well. In evaporated or condensed form it physically works ok, but it tends to develop yucky off-flavors as it cooks down. Nut milks can work in liquid form but when you concentrate them they get GROSS!
If you plan to concentrate a commercial product like Silk (I don't recommend 8th Cont. due to their vitamin sources) instead of 'raw' soy milk don't add sweetener until the volume has reduced! They've already been sweetened and you need (roughly) about half what condensing recipes call for IMHO.
There's a few ways I've made those bars (grew up in Texas, gotta know how to do those!<VBG>). Obviously you can use condensed soy and EarthBalance, I like to use extra virgin coconut oil and coconut cream instead! If you've got the Eagle recipe, use 1/3rd cup coconut oil instead of Earthbalance (or things get greasy) and about a cup of coconut cream. If you can find it (and it's still vegan<g>) there's a killer coconut cream called "Coco Re`al" that's so thick you just spread a 1/4 inch layer of it! It's supposed to still be around but I've not found it in years (but I don't go to liquor stores anymore either<G>). Crushed Cacoa nibs blow chocolate chips away! If you want marshmallows, the non-Emes recipe for home-made works well here (the Emes recipe is a fake!), you can also spread a layer of the unfinished 'goo' before coconut cream/condensed soy. Mevlana has the link to the *real* recipe for homemade marshmallows if you need it<g>.
While out on a shopping trip I learned that Coco Lopez coconut cream has glycerides listed on the label now. That eliminates it as a veggie safe product IMHO. DIdn't find Coco Re`al to check it, but freshly made Asian store and homemade coconut cream is always veggie safe<g>.
Josephine Said:Is there a fresh tasting substitute for sweetened condensed milk, specifically for pie recipes?
We Answered:I've never heard of a recipe for Key Lime Pie (which is one of my favorite things to make, by the way) that had all fresh ingredients. It seems that a can of sweetened condensed milk is a necessity to make it! However, I found a recipe for homemade sweetened condensed milk:
HOMEMADE SWEETENED CONDENSED MILK
1/2 c. cold water
1 1/4 c. nonfat dry milk powder
3/4 c. sugar
Measure water into 2 cup glass measure. Gradually stir in milk powder until smooth. Microwave on high 3/4 to 1 minute or until milk is steaming hot. Stir in sugar until dissolved. Allow to cool before using. Use as substitute in recipes calling for one 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk.
Hope this helps you!!
