5% or 6% Light Cream or Cream and Milk Blend for Coffee
A blend of milk and cream, 5% or 6% Light Cream is a little richer than whole milk but lighter than other creams - a perfect balance for everyday use. It is available in cartons. Add a splash for a creamier texture in smoothies, coffee, hot chocolate and other recipes calling for milk.
- Try a delightful version of Cream of Fennel Soup using Light cream. Just don’t let the soup boil.

- Make steamy Spiced Hot Chocolate extra-special by substituting 1 cup (250 mL) of Light cream for an equal amount of milk.
- Yummy Peach Bread Pudding gets even yummier when you replace half of the milk with Light cream.
