Looks like making whipped cream isn't on the list but cream is.  So I took raw milk and skimmed the cream off it.  Then I made ice cream.  I also made whipped cream from some store bought whipping cream as a bonus :)

Recipe for the ice cream is in the picture.  Recipe for cream is to take it off the top of the milk.  I used a turkey baster to remove it.  Recipe for whipped cream is a pint of cream in a quart jar with a table spoon of maple syrup.  Shake till it's whipped cream.

Minimum requirements for this BB:
- Dairy - do two of the following (no duplication - ie. not two butters):
  - Vegan cheese
  - Nut milk
  - Seed milk
  - Hard cheese (counts as two)
  - Butter
  - Powdered milk
  - Yogurt
  - Cream
  - Cottage cheese
  - Ice cream
  - Soft cheeses
  - Kefir
  - Whole milk buttermilk

I made feta cheese with cow milk and then later a vegan coconut milk.

First the Feta:

Here's the recipe


The ingredients I used


The curds when they are set and cut


Drained curds ready to press


I added a fresh fig leaf to the brine to keep the curds below surface and add a hint of flavor.


After 3 weeks of aging, it was ready to eat. Good flavor, a softer texture than what I buy in the store. This picture shows my feta in lower section of dish and store-bought in upper.


Now the coconut milk. I started with just organic coconut flour and filtered water. No recipe.


Blended for a few minutes on "liquefy"


Strained using a cotton cloth.


In the end, I have about 3 cups of coconut "milk" that is the consistency of skimmed cows milk. I wanted it thin like this, rather than the thinker canned coconut milk.

I stumbled upon this BB ... Never knew I could get a BB for something I do very often. I did not think of it as 'making a dairy product', because I start with a dairy product and only process that further on.
And I did not think of plant-based dairy! Thank you M Broussard.

I hope so I meet the 'Minimum requirements for this BB'...
I made soft cheese and nut milk. They're in the list.

Recipe Soft Cheese: I started with Bulgarian yoghurt and had the whey drip out until it looked and tasted like Cream Cheese. In part of it I added some herbs.

The yoghurt it started with (50% discount because it was at its last selling date).

Yoghurt in a piece of cloth in a sieve.

After many of the whey dripped out (which I drank) I hung it to drip some more.

Then it looked like this. After this photo I flattened it a little.

Half of it I left 'naturelle', in the other half I added herbs.

Nutmilk, recipe: mixed nuts (not roasted), first soaked in water for some hours. Then put in the blender (with new water) and mixed until it looked like milk. Sieved through a piece of cloth. Then I had two products: the Nutmilk and the 'pulp'. The last one I added to a soup, the milk I used to bake pancakes.

Nuts soaking.

Nuts in new water in blender.

Blending.

Sieving.

Some of the milk, to taste.

Put it in a jar in the fridge until I was going to use it.

The nut pulp.

Note: We struggled with approving this one since you started with yoghurt.  We'll adjust the requirements to be a bit more clear for those who come along in the future.

Hi Mike, I saw you changed the requirements, but still approved my submission. Next time I'll make kefir first, or add lemon juice to milk to make it into soft cheese.
 
No. No. No. No. Changed my mind. Wanna come down. To see this tiny ad:
