ok I hate to report this, but the soy milk did not work in the custard at all! Made it tasteless, and the texture was not near as rich and creamy as with the dry milk powder. So sticking with the dry milk powder for this one girls!
This is the first one it just didn't work with.
Oh yeah, I really like the soy milk in my tea! And a few other things too. But, definitely not this one.
So far on the recipes I have tried it in, there is no taste difference. I will be tasting the custard soon! (about a hour from now). And I'll let you know. But, when I have used it in bread pudding like the chocolate peanut butter bread pudding from Open Road cookbook, I did not taste any difference at all! :)
I have to say, I will for the rest of my life be grateful to JoAnna. If it wasn't for her recipes, I seriously don't believe I could of stayed on plan all these years, and I would of more then likely gained a ton of weight in these years, instead of losing and maintaining where I am now.
There was so many foods I never thought I would have again once I was diagnosed with diabetes. And boy did JoAnna come through!
Well, many of her recipes, once I got the idea, of how she did it to make it healthy! It becomes like dominoes falling, one thing leads to another and before I know it I have a whole new recipe of my own! Using Jo's techniques.
Any way, I made a recipe book of my own here on Spark, many of the recipes may look familiar! lol haha They are ones I converted into something else entirely by using the HE ways.
If you are interested in any of them, they are under the Cookbook on my Spark Page called,
The Strawberry Shortcake recipe is a variation of Easy Tiramisu, I took out the brandy extract, the water, and the coffee crystals. And added a quart of sliced strawberries. Boy is it good!!!!! I wish I would of taken pics last time I took it. But, I'll be sure to next time!
Lela's Ozark Custard Bread Pudding is a variation of Old-Time Custard Pie from a November Newsletter. I'm making it today another way! Today I'm using soy milk (light), that will bring the calories down by 40 calories a serving! If it comes out. I'll let you know. Next time I will try it with egg beaters! I didn't have any this time. I'll also take some pictures. I'll say the version I did post (I'll change it to soy milk if it works), I have had numerous times, and every one in the family loves it!
