in case you missed it

for those of you who didn't show, we partied hard with powdered (dry) milk this week. so here's the info you missed:
we taste-tested and the verdict is in - morning moo is (relatively) delicious. it is powdery and when chilled, can just about pass for actual milk.
Q: but my family won't drink the powdered stuff. why should i store it?
A: good question. you can use dry milk in tons more ways than just to pour on cereal or wash down a cookie. you can use it for:
  • Mashed potatoes – stir dry milk in with dry potatoes, add milk mix and the water to replace the same amount of milk. (1/8 c. moo milk mix and 1 c. water = 1 c. milk)
  • Cream based soups,
  • white sauce,
  • smoothies,
  • Orange Julius,
  • Pudding,
  • fudgesicles
  • Light cream,
  • Evaporated milk,
  • Sweetened Condensed milk,
  • Buttermilk (add lemon juice)

Here are the recipes that were handed out:


3 c. flour ¼ c. sugar
1 c. wheat flour 1 T. baking powder
1 c. non-fat dry milk 1 T. baking soda
½ c. cornmeal 1 tsp. salt
½ c. wheat germ (or oat bran or wheat bran flakes)
Optional: add ½ oatmeal and a Tablespoon ground flax)

Mix together and store in a ziplock or airtight container for up to 3 months. Makes about 6c. mix.


2 eggs 1 ½ c. griddle mix
3 T. oil or melted butter ½ c. berries, grated zucchini, or nuts
3/4c. water

Mix together eggs, oil and water. Add the pancake mix and stir until blended. Gently fold in berries or other additions. Cook and enjoy! Makes about twelve 4 inch pancakes.
(use in place of Bisquick)

8 ½ c. flour 1 tsp. baking soda
4 T. baking powder 1 ½ c .non-fat dry milk
1 T. salt 2 tsp. cream of tartar
2 ¼ c. shortening
(variation: use 4 ¼ c. flour & 4 ¼ c. whole wheat flour. Increase baking powder to 5 T.)

Mix all dry ingredients together. With a pastry blender or heavy duty mixer, cut in shortening, until mixture resembles cornmeal in texture. Makes about 13 cups.

2 c. Quick mix 2 eggs
½ c. cornmeal 1 c. milk or water
2/3 c. sugar ¼ c. melted butter or margarine

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 inch square pan. Mix Quick mix, cornmeal and sugar in a bowl. Combine eggs, with milk or water in another bowl. Add to dry ingredients and blend. Add melted butter and stir to blend. Pour into pan and bake 35-40 minutes or until golden brown. Makes 8-10 servings.
(tastes like a Frosty)

1 ½ to 2 c. ice water 1 tsp. vanilla
1 ½ c. non-fat dry milk 1 to 1 ½ trays of ice cubes
2/3 c. sugar 2 T. vegetable oil
¼ c. unsweetened cocoa 5 second squirt of non-stick spray

Place all of the ingredients into the blender, including the oil and the non-stick spray. (remember your milk is non-fat and the oil is needed to make it creamy and thick, the spray emulsifies it) Use less water for thicker shakes. The blender should be ¾’s full. Place the lid on and process for a full 2 minutes. Pour into cups and serve. Makes 4 – 12oz. servings.

Variations: add a banana, or a big spoonful of peanut butter, add a few broken red & white candy mints for chocolate mint. For vanilla omit cocoa and reduce sugar to ½ c. and add 1 T. vanilla.

5 ½ c. non-fat dry milk 1 1/3c. powdered non-dairy creamer
1 ½ c. powdered sugar ½ tsp. salt
½ c. heaping unsweetened cocoa 2 c. instant chocolate milk mix (Nestles)

Mix all ingredients well. Store in air tight container in cool dry place. Mix 1/3c. (or 3 heaping Tbsp.) mix to 1 cup hot water.


On the stove, bring to a boil:
½ c. water 3 Tbsp. margarine
1 c. sugar dash of salt

Stir the mixture every now and then. When it comes to a full rolling boil, remove from heat. Allow to cool slightly. Add 1 c. non-fat dry milk slowly, using a whisk. Stir until smooth. Makes 1 can, store in fridge for 2 weeks or freeze.
Fast Fast Fudge
1 pound powdered sugar (3 ¾ c)
