In a pinch? Sour Cream Powder to the rescue
(great for food storage too!)

Thrive life sour cream on a spoon

Do you have recipes that call for sour cream?  I only have a handful of recipes that call for sour cream, but my family would be really sad if I weren’t able to make those anymore.
Have you ever thought about what you would use if you weren’t able to get sour cream? 

Thrive Life’s sour cream powder is so creamy once you add water. You can use it in so many recipes and it is such a great substitute if you don’t want to keep fresh sour cream on hand at all times.


I love the sour cream powder so much that it made the cut for my top 12 items I keep in my food storage.

Melanie's Notes on Sour Cream Powder:

This stuff is gold and so convenient to just be able to scoop out how much I need for any recipe.

I will say however, the flavor is very rich, so I tend to use a little less than the recipe calls for.
