How to use full cream milk powder?
Full cream milk powder is a highly versatile food staple and can be used in a lot more ways than you would think. So let's take a look at the myriad of ways in which you can use powdered milk -
1. Sweetened condensed milk
Condensed milk is a key ingredient in plenty of decadent desserts like chocolate fudge, pies and sweet glaze. With powdered milk, you can whip up your own can of creamy condensed milk by adding in just a few ingredients to it like butter, honey and vanilla extract.
2. Whipping cream
When you're short on time and can’t make a trip to the grocery store for whipped cream, powdered milk gets the job done wonderfully. Add ice-cold water and milk powder to a bowl of your stand mixer and mix it up until it's nice and fluffy. Top it onto crepes, waffles, cold-coffees and pretty much anything else!
3. Coffee creamer & hot chocolate
A convenient way to make your coffee creamer is with full cream milk powder which dissolves quickly for a smooth cup of coffee bliss. It’s rich creamy texture is also great to make a warm cup of hot chocolate that you can enjoy in the winter.
4. Oatmeal packets
Combine your milk powder & oats and store them in sachets for a quick and easy breakfast on busy mornings with your own homemade instant oatmeal packets that are easy to make and a fraction of the cost of store-bought ones.
Making a soothing milk face mask is another way to benefit from the moisturising power of milk. Scoop some powdered milk into a small bowl, and add just enough water to make a thick paste. Use clean hands or a brush to apply the paste to your face. Let the paste dry, then rinse clean for soft, smooth skin. Milk can also work as a soothing treatment for sunburns, insect bites and other skin irritations.
Milk powder may just be your secret ingredient to more flavourful baking. Liquid milk adds water to batters and doughs, too much of which can ruin the texture of the finished baked good. Using milk powder instead gives your baked goods a dense texture along with the benefits of milk minus the extra moisture content. What’s more, is that full cream milk powder doesn’t need to be refrigerated and can last in your kitchen for more than a year.
