Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup mild flavored plant-based milk such as oat or unsweetened almond
  • 1/3 cup vegan butter melted

Instructions

  • Using a microwave, heat the butter 15 seconds at a time, just until melted. Alternatively, melt the butter in a small saucepan on the stovetop over low heat.
  • Into a high speed blender, add the butter and milk. Blend on medium high for about 5 minutes, until thickened slightly. (Exact time may vary depending on your blender speed.)
  • Use in place of 1 cup of heavy cream.
