Half and Half Substitute

Half and Half Substitute

Photo © Erin Huffstetler
Making a substitute for half and half is as simple as mixing two everyday ingredients.

Prep Time: 2 minutes

Total Time: 2 minutes


  • Milk
  • 1 Tbsp butter or margarine, melted


Replace one cup of half and half with 1 tablespoon melted butter, plus enough milk to equal a cup.

Note: This substitute works well in baked goods, soups and other cooked dishes. It will not whip, and therefore should not be used in any recipe that calls for whipping half and half.

Wonderful, Member lyndsits

This is a wonderful substitute for my beer cheese soup that required half and half. I have used it for baking also.
