I hope you have coconut cream instead of coconut milk. It's so much better with that. Hope you enjoy it. A touch of salt, or butter really makes it amazing too.

Does anyone have recipes for Sour Cream? Or Ranch?

I tried a toffuti product for Sour Cream and regretted it bad physical reaction. Must have been the Soy.

So I am on the hunt for Heavy Cream, Whip Cream, Sour Cream, Cream Cheese and Ranch.

Here's a sour cream to start: http://paleotable.com/2012/11/paleo-sour-cream/. For whipped cream, I just use the coconut cream mentioned earlier in this thread. Once you make your own mayonaise, any creamy dressing can be made. Mel has some good ones: http://www.theclothesmakethegirl.co...recipes/sauces/

Google is your friend when looking for substitute recipes. Just type in Paleo Whatever and a number of recipes will pop up to consider.
I am always amazed how many new Paleo Recipe websites appear each day.
Yesterday, I stumbled on a beautiful one following a Biscuit link:

I'm in awe of the time and talent people have to create beautifully photographed websites...and happily gather up the free tips.

Hey Janet,

I appreciate you taking the time to answer, it is greatly appreciate

Thanks for the links I will try them.

Google is my friend and enemy. After spending days upon days searching for various recipes. It gets my hopes up and then dashes them.

Just like those delicious looking biscuits you kindly gave me a link to. Look oh so good. Then you do the count. 21 carbs per serving. Suck. Hopes dashed again that leads to frustration

One time I was looking for Italian dressing you know how much sugar type substance people put into it? Tons. Luckily I found Kens Steak house Italian dressing. No sugar whatsoever. 0 carbs. And no soybean oil.

Problem I was having with sour cream and ranch was they wanted Mayo. Off shelf Mayo has soybean oil in it.

I am slowly realizing I might have to make everything from scratch including accomendents (sp?)

And so far with all my hours of searching and trying recipes I don't have much to show for it.

I will try to make the mayo this weekend from the site you gave.

Again thanks so much

Oh man 3/4 cup of arrowroot is gonna be carby. It is about the same as cornstarch in carbs.

http://healthyindulgences.net/ has a great biscuit recipe without arrowroot. I've made them several times and they're awesome.
http://healthyindulgences.net/2008/...-free-biscuits/

Also, they posted a biscuit recipe on Wheat Belly this week.

http://www.wheatbellyblog.com/2013/...-and-dumplings/

The biscuits are an ingredient the chicken and dumplings.

I also got this book and have only made one thing: Cajun Dinner rolls. They're amazing.

Making your own mayo is essential. I had been avoiding soybean oil before low carb, so finding the recipe with one whole egg so no waste and light tasting olive oil was key. Then it just became part of my routine. All the coconut cream substitutes are new to me, but pretty easy and tasty.
That biscuit is carby, but the website had some other sauce recipes and is written by a chef. We are doing a little 'real food' Paleo group so when searching for substitutes, carb count sometimes is second to finding a recipe acceptable taste wise to a family. I love the WheatBelly and Peter Reinhardt book too. Know I copied the Cajun roll recipe, will try it, thanks.

Ps: Mel's homemade ranch is good, but easier, take the homemade mayo and add a package of the dry ranch seasoning mix. I thin it with a little buttermilk (have the dry mix for recipes) but maybe coconut milk would work? Going on the theory the tiny amount of funky stuff in the mix isn't too bad.

I can also recommend adding caramel flavored syrup (sugar free, of course).

Wow, this is, as Nancy said, a keeper.

I get burned out on the taste of coconut in my coffee, but I find this to be minimally coconutty. I guess the egg and vanilla take care of that.

I used Mr Gouda's coconut milk and put the can in the fridge. I used only the thick cream on top.

I just made a fresh batch, myself. Coconut cream, 2 whole eggs and half a tsp of stevia. Quite lovely!

How long does this last before spoiling? I find coconut milk/cream spoils very quickly .. 2 days at best.

Can it be frozen .. or more importantly, does it hold up when thawed or does it separate?

I've had it in the fridge for 4 days or so, but I do use it up pretty quickly.

I've never had milk/cream spoil that quickly. Cream generally keeps a week or two for me. You might want to get a thermometer and make sure your fridge is at or below 40'.

I doubt the raw egg would be very nice after freezing, but the only way to know is to try!

Default Non dairy creamer - Nancy!

I think it was your recipe I copied, but I can't find it by search. I finally found some coconut cream, but the recipe I copied says "1 can" and then egg and sweetner. How much is in the size of can you use? I've got a fairly large jar here. Also - I assume because of the egg it needs to be kept in the fridge. How long does it keep?

14 oz can is what I used.

Yup, refrigeration is necessary. I'd imagine at least a week. Mine doesn't last that long because I use it up!
