NOTE: To manage lactose restrictions, substitute Carnation® Evaporated Milk with Carnation® Lactose-Free Evaporated Milk in any recipe. Our Lactose-Free Evaporated Milk has a sweeter profile than regular Evaporated Milk, so you may notice a slightly sweeter profile to your recipe. To manage dairy restrictions, substitute Carnation® Evaporated Milk with Carnation® Almond Cooking Milk in any recipe. Some recipes, such as our Libby’s Famous Pumpkin Pie, turn out best with a different amount of Almond Cooking Milk. Please check our Alternative Milk Recipes page for recipes that have been specifically tailored for alternative milk usage.
