I have been mixing up delectable sweets with Carnation® Evaporated Milk for years. Pies, cakes, brownies and other delicious treats are always a big hit over the holidays, but Carnation® Evaporated Milk doesn’t have to just be used for desserts and sweets. You can use it in your everyday cooking too. It has less water than milk so it adds a rich and creamy texture to your recipes, like this cream of mushroom soup shown below. It’s also very simple to use and comes in three different varieties: Carnation® Regular, 2% or Fat Free Evaporated Milk.

Creamy soups are particularly easy to make with Carnation® Evaporated Milk. Making them at home rather than purchasing canned soups allows you to control the amount of salt and fat that goes into your recipe, and homemade always tastes better!
