You just can’t make cream without fresh cow’s milk, and by fresh that really does mean straight from the cow. Fresh cow’s milk contains an amount of butterfat and that’s what we use as cream.
Butterfat is the fatty part of the cow’s milk that separates when the milk stands for some time Cows grazing on natural pastures will sometimes produce a yellowish buttermilk cream, however cows reared indoors and fed on grain or grain based pellets produce a white cream.

Why can’t you use shop bought milk to make cream?

Homogenized means that the fresh milk is forced under high pressure through tiny holes to break down the fatty particles in the milk to very small sizes. This makes the fatty parts unable to re-join to create the cream.
