evaporated milk substitute?

Hi, Gang!

I'm not a cook or chef or even someone who enjoys being in the kitchen. But I got a wild hair and am trying a recipe that calls for evaporated milk. I don't have any, and I'm partway through the recipe! (Thought I had some, but evidently not.)

What can I use instead?

All I have is skim, and not much of it. Would I need to add more flour or some such thing to make it thicker?

I do have coconut milk - would that work just like the whole milk?

Here's what I do:

EVAPORATED MILK
(Makes about 1 cup)
1 cup water
2/3 cup powdered milk

Combine and stir until powdered milk is completely dissolved. Refrigerate.

Bummer - I don't have any powdered milk either. (I don't have an ordinary person's pantry, obviously!)

I went ahead with the coconut milk. Since I'm making a pumpkin pie, it should be really good with it. It's in the oven now. Keeping my fingers crossed . . .

Thanks to both of you for your help!
