For many years Milkman Powdered Milk was the premier dry milk product on the market.  Sadly it disappeared from the market in 2011 until recently when it was relaunched.  Along with the relaunch announcement, we wanted to share 10 Great Uses For Powdered Milk with you.  These are daily uses that you may not have thought to use dry milk powder for!  We are even more excited to share that starting this month, all Milkman ingredients containing GMO’s will be eliminated.  Milkman will begin to be a low fat powdered milk that is also completely GMO-free!

10 Great Uses For Milkman Powdered Milk

I love that Milkman powdered milk is simple to prepare and made with a simple ingredient list.  It is a must in my stockpile that is for sure!  Milkman is, and for over 60 years, has been the best tasting, easily dispensable powdered milk available. It is the only powder with real milk flavor.  In fact I made a pitcher and my family had NO idea it was powdered milk instead of traditional refrigerated.  It had the same consistency and wasn’t grainy and had a really nice creamy taste.

10 Great Uses For Milkman Powdered Milk

Ingredients: 100% real milk, cream


1.  Pour contents of one envelope into approximately 1/2 quart of water stirring continuously with a spoon.

2. Add water to make one quart. Chill and serve ice cold.

When traveling one tip that I got from a friend is to mix it in a ball canning jar. She said to add 6 or 8 large ice cubes, water and powdered milk and shake until the ice is gone. She said that it takes her about 5 minutes but that it works really well when camping or outdoors.

After it’s 3 year sabbatical, we are thrilled to see Milkman back on the market again for us to buy and use.  This quality powdered milk brand is one that will remain in our pantry from now on.  Make sure to restock your pantry, camping kit and backpack with this great milk substitute that is shelf stable and affordable.  Milkman low fat powdered milk can now be purchased online at MilkmanMilk.com, Amazon.com, and at REI.com.
