Recipes: Using Powdered Milk

Author Unknown

Foods made with powdered milk will have fewer calories and less cholesterol than those made from whole milk. Adding additional milk to the recipe will enhance the nutritive value of the recipe. In any recipe calling for milk, simply add water for the milk called for in the recipe.
Recipes call for many types of milk. All the following can be made from powdered milk.

Whole milk
1 cup water
1/3 cup powdered milk

Evaporated milk
1 cup water
2/3 cup powdered milk

Whipped evaporated milk
Makes 3 cups
1 cup evaporated milk
2 Tbsp lemon juice

Thoroughly chill evaporated milk. Add lemon juice and whip until stiff. Sweeten and flavor as desired.

Condensed milk
1/2 cup hot water
1 cup sugar
1 cup powdered milk

Blend thoroughly in a blender. Can be stored in refrigerator or frozen.

Buttermilk or sour milk
1 cup water
1/3 cup powdered milk
1 Tbsp vinegar or lemon juice

Drinkable powdered milk
To improve the flavor of powdered milk, mix it half and half with 2% or whole milk. Another suggestion would be to try adding a little sugar or vanilla to enhance flavor. Let chill several hours before drinking.

I can't believe you are having another boy!!! For most people the odds of having a boy are 50%. For you, it's 80% at least. That's cool though. You better start saving up for those missions!

We drank powdered milk all the time growing up. My dad would mix it with the blender and refrigerate it. I never really knew it tasted different because I was so used to it. When we were small my parents mixed it with whole or 2% to give us needed fat, but we drank it straight when we got a little older. It is very easy to use dry powdered milk in recipes instead of regular milk, and I cannot taste any difference.
