It's Official

It's official: I'm a milk snob! A POWDERED MILK SNOB!

Don't laugh. It's true!

I've written before about how much money we began to save by using powdered milk. When made the night before and chilled well, we couldn't tell the difference between skim milk and powdered skim milk.

Then the milk hit the began tasting watery to me. I couldn't drink it. I told Rick it was like bad Yoohoo (a chocolate drink that's never seen the inside of a cow, as far as I know).

The milk I didn't like was REAL milk (ok, it was skim milk, but it wasn't powdered) from Kroger! I'd found some on sale for $2/gallon and we'd put it in the freezer. Rick had thawed it out and used it to make me some chocolate milk. ICK!
We're mixing the powdered milk correctly and getting the entire yield from the box so it's not like we're using extra powder and making it richer.

So, it's official. I'm a milk snob. I will only drink the powdered stuff now.

I'm not quite sure how to respond to that. GROSS! comes to mind! :) BLECK, would come in 2nd! I'm at least pleased that you are including CHOCOLATE in your milk. Way to go! :)

The secret is use a mixer when you
mix the milk. I promise you I could fool you with the results.Rick

Well, I'm gonna leave you to that title, Dana. I'll stick with the real stuff for now. I like to use powdered in cooking but not for drinking straight.
