Can you make heavy cream with Lactaid Milk?

Umm... Lactose is what's at issue here and, being a water soluble sugar, clarifying butter will remove virtually all of it.

In that case, using 1/3 cup of melted ghee should work beautifully, don't you think?

Different flavor but, yes, same principle.

Lactaid milk is pasteurized and homogenized. The cream cannot be separated from the milk. You will not be able to produce a cream that can be used for whipping cream. If you are trying to use it in a recipe where you want a full fat effect, like Alfredo, you may be able to get by using a combination of 3/4 cup of milk and 1/3 cup of melted and cooled butter (or margarine if the person is sensitive to any lactic acid in butter).
