Dry Milk


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I use dry milk in all my recipes that require milk. Since it's in with other foods, there's no discernable taste difference. It costs less than "real" milk (it actually IS real milk). It never goes bad, so I save money by never having to throw it out. It's fat free, so I save calories.

    This is a great idea for saving money...just keep in mind to read what's in milk "nutrition wise" may need to supplement with other foods or vitamins because dried milk can lose its nutritional content when dried. Calcium should be ok :)

    My Mom did this all of the time when the four of us children were at home. My parents knew how to stretch a dollar - those depression days influenced them and us a lot. I've never tried this myself though.

    I like this idea. I have been having problems with milk going bad because I don't use it that often but like to have it for cereal once in a while.
