How do you make powdered milk for drinking taste good?

    How do you make powdered milk for drinking taste good?

    I have used powdered milk in recipes mostly with success except in rice pudding. I had a neighbor tell me that her mom would the put milk in a pitcher and let it sit in the refrigerator for a week and it tasted like regular milk. Has anyone ever tried this? I really need to use up the powdered milk I have and with milk prices being what they are, I'd like to take a stab at using powdered milk for drinking.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks.

     It doesn't have to sit for a week.  As long as it is "ice cold" it tastes delicious. You may find that powdered milk is no longer a "deal" due to rising costs of many grocery items.

    When Momma had to use powdered milk a long time ago, she put a drop or two of vanilla in it to get my brother to drink it.

    You're right about that. I saw a large box of Carnation powdered milk and it was $15.00, at Wal-Mart. That didn't seem like a bargain to me.

    Year's ago my mom would add 1 can of evaporated milk to the mixed up powdered milk. It was okay, for what I can remember.

    You can make it into chocolate milk with syrup or Nestle's Quick. That would cover the taste.

    Rolo You're right. It had been a couple of years since I bought powdered milk. I buy from a bulk store and I about flipped when I saw the price. Glad I'm not the only one who noticed this.

    Thank you all for the great responses. Time to start experimenting!

    I haven't bought powdered milk in forever but I have some stored that I need to use up and usually I don't think to make the amount needed in recipes or plan ahead to have made and ready to put in a recipe immediately.

    No, I probably would buy any at these prices.

    Thanks again,

    Colleen

     I use powered milk all the time , 

    to get the children to drink I would make it up at night and morning it would be ice cold and out of 8 none ever knew ..

    I think much powdered milk is nonfat.
