I just bought 50 lbs of whole powdered milk at a local store for an insanely low price.  I'll use quite a bit of it for drinks, but I'm wondering if anyone has any favorite recipes which use powdered milk for me to try out.  I know that there are some "in a jar" type recipes out there, but what else have you made?

I reconstitute it and use it in any recipe that calls for milk.  Are you thinking of recipes that don't call for it to be reconstituted?

Effortless Eggnog       

Makes 8 Servings 


 ½ Gallon             Milk, Cold, divided

1 pkg              Instant French Vanilla Pudding Mix

¼ cup              Sugar

2 tsp                Vanilla Extract

½ tsp               Cinnamon, ground

½ tsp               Nutmeg, ground


 In a large bowl, whisk ¾ cup milk and pudding mix until smooth.  Whisk in the sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg.  Stir in the remaining milk.  Refrigerate until served.

*Powdered milk works well in this.  I also use reconstituted milk in my oatmeal and my cream of wheat. 

Also on the back of the powdered chocolate container is a recipe for chocolate milk mix that you can make up and put in the pretty canning jars and send for christmas presents with the directions written on a card tied around the neck of the jar. 

You can also pre-mix cream sauce and do the same thing.  I make these up for the ladies I visit teach. 

I also like to use my powdered milk in scrambled eggs again I reconstitute it first.

I just made a fabulous and easy rum cake recipe from Saveur (food) mag, which called for a quarter cup of milk powder. Maybe it's online, altho that little bit will not matter much to you!

It caught my eye because I have never seen a recipe that called for it before--and it costs a lot more than I expected!
