    I am looking for a substitute for half & half cream (10%). Would it work to cook down cashew beverage? What other suggestion might you have?
    Much appreciated.

  2. if you are mixing soy powder and water your making soy milk right so can you use just soy milk and add water to it to make the evaporta milk

    please reply back to me

    • Hi Sandy, that won’t work. Soymilk is made with a ration of 1 cup powder to 4 cups water. This is a much higher concentration of powder to make it thicker. If you opt to use soymilk, you will need to boil it down (takes a while and it can “curdle”).
