maybe just plain old milk? Or maybe butter melted in some milk? When a person needs some ingreidient immediately for a recipe(like me now) it would be good to have a reliable substitute.

What are you making?
That will make the difference in what to use as a substitute.

If you not intending to whip it, mix butter into milk and that will work okay.

I have no clue if there is anything that will sub if you need to whip it. Though I know that in Mexico, they will put a bit of sugar into Mexican crema (very similar to a thin sour cream) and use it on fruit.

Frozen cool whip. There's some arctic brand ice cream that's incredibly low calorie as well.

Whole yogurt, not the low fat kinds, the full fat one, can be substituted for milk I think in some recipes, not all of course.

You can whip canned milk into whipped "cream"

For sauces just use milk with a little extra thickener, like flour or corn starch.

For ice cream, you use a combination of milk and cream, but you can use the same recipe and use all 1/2 and 1/2 and it will be edible.
