You're out of two percent but you do have some other milk derived liquids on hand with
varying fat contents. What proportions can you mix to get what you like? Looking up
the fat content of milk we
find the average fat content by volume of different milk products is:
Now we can calculate proportions:
skim 0.2% one percent 1% two percent 2% whole 3.25% half and half 14% light cream 25% heavy whipping cream 36%
- one percent:
- 56% skim and 44% two percent
- 74% skim and 26% whole
- 94% skim and 6% half and half
- 97% skim and 3% light cream
- 98% skim and 2% heavy whipping cream
- two percent:
- 41% skim and 59% whole
- 87% skim and 13% half and half
- 93% skim and 7% light cream
- 95% skim and 5% heavy whipping cream
- 67% one percent and 33% whole
- 92% one percent and 8% half and half
- 96% one percent and 4% light cream
- 97% one percent and 3% heavy whipping cream
- whole:
- 78% skim and 22% half and half
- 88% skim and 12% light cream
- 91% skim and 9% heavy whipping cream
- 83% one percent and 17% half and half
- 91% one percent and 9% light cream
- 94% one percent and 6% heavy whipping cream
- 90% two percent and 10% half and half
- 95% two percent and 5% light cream
- 96% two percent and 4% heavy whipping cream
Update 2018-10-04: I initially had this table with whole milk at 4% instead of 3.25%. While whole milk can vary in fat content depending on the cow, in the US 3.25% is by far the most common amount.
