I switched over from drinking whole milk to drinking skim milk this year after I was diagnosed with acid reflux and not long after I started buying powdered milk just because it's cheaper.
I hadn't had powdered milk since I was a kid and was very surprised about how much they had improved it.

Anyone else use it?

Like you, Montana, I haven't used it since I was a kid. My mother used to mix it 50-50 with whole milk. This was before the days of 2% and 1% milk at the grocery.

I use it daily. It's a bit cheaper, but I get it just to avoid a late night shopping trip to have milk for breakfast.

It's a good thing to have in your emergency supplies too. Reminds me, we need to redo ours.

Yeah, I buy it in big bags to save even more and I think it's great that I can make just as much as I'll need.
I will do everything with it, except drink it strait. I put it in my coffee, cereal, use it for cooking and make shakes with it.

Good stuff Cool

Have you tried rice milk Montana?
Also other substitute milks with no dairy in them.
Admittedly the dont all mix with coffe but are perfect for cereals and shakes.

I know slappy likes to roll in it, then dip himself in chocolate, and run around as crazy, naked, malted milk chocolate covered hot dog guy.

mrs h uses powered milk when she prepares a large batch of aspargus soup for the cold canadian winter !
the p.m. gives the soup more body and great flavour .

I can't drink the stuff. I just want to gag at the smell. My parents used to make it and there'd be yellow lumps floating on the top and my throat would close up and I couldn't drink it at all. I was told to hold my nose and drink it but no way.

Since I did the dishes, my sisters would pay me to dump their milk down the drain. I made a lot of money.

My parents drank regular milk, which we all thought highly unfair.

And that was only the first indication! We were also force-fed liver and beef tongue (gag).

I use powdered milk much like mrs. h - when making cream soups

(finally - something I taught her :wink: )

- powdered milk was a staple for cooking from the Diet for a Small Planet Books back in the day.

I never tried powdered milk.
Any advantages other than not getting spoiled?
