    A friend has recently developed a problem digesting cow's milk dairy products.  What would be a good substitute for heavy cream?  Hopefully something that's not loaded with sugar and strange sounding chemical names.

    Unfortunately there is no substitute.

    But then, what are you trying to do with it?  I can't digest lactose too so I have to take a lactaid everytime I eat ice cream.  It does fine if I don't eat a whole bunch.  I can't seem to drink a glass of milk and take a lactaid without getting a stomachache.

    I once saw an oprah show where she had a vegan chef on.  He used pureed macadamia nuts as a substitute for heavy cream.
