I want to make a cream based sauce. I have no cream. I do have 2% dairy fresh milk ( more like whole) and sour cream. Can I make do or should I just go a different route?

No half and half?

I think the milk could work if you add cornstarch.

It won't be as thick or creamy.

The 2% could work, but your sauce won't be as creamy. I have done it with fat free milk and LOTS of flour. It worked, but like I said, not near as creamy as using whole milk or cream.

Sour Cream would be best. DO you have the other ingredients or are you looking for a quick sauce recipe?

I have made yummy cream sauces with 2 percent milk. It's very doable.

Google bechamel. All you need is butter, flour and milk.

I would use a combo of the two with a bit of flour or cornstarch.
