  • I always mix it. I have a gallon jug, and buy a quart of 2% milk. Make a half gallon and a quart of powdered milk before going to bed, and mix it with the quart of 2% and chill over night. DH who says he'll never drink powdered milk has been drinking it for months and has no idea. We've tried the powdered milk plain, and we don't like it at all. Just that little bit of fat and the fresh milk make all the difference in the world.

  • I think that is a good idea. I think it tastes weird but I don't drink milk. BUT..... one day i was out of milk and I had to make Mac n cheese and all I had was powdered milk from my bread machine and it made AWESOME mac n cheese. That was a long time ago but now that my husband is out of work and we go through about 12 gallons of milk a pay period I may use powdered milk for that and hamburger helper and etc. It will be way cheaper. We made 2 boxes of helper tonight and it took 3 and 1/2 cups of milk!!!!

  • I can't stand the taste of powdered milk...but I do cook with it! Like you said, it's cheaper and I don't like using 1/2 gallong of milk to cook. But as far as drinking it, I can't stand it...but if you're little one likes it that's awesome!

  • I used to mix it with regular milk and the kids never knew, but I had to be careful not to get caught!

  • It does taste weird. I mix it one part to 3 parts regular milk to stretch our budget.
