Milk….How would it feel to Never Run Out Of Milk Again? This Thrive Instant Milk is easy to mix and drink as is with the amount of water stated on the can. WOW, instant milk has come a long way baby! I grew up on powdered milk that was mixed with regular milk so it was fine to make the same thing for my kids. Of course, it was powdered and yucky (sorry if you like it—I can still smell it-urgh). It was thick and hard to mix, I had to use a blender. I must put a huge disclaimer here….I do not, will not drink any milk. Okay, so now that I have disclosed this little tidbit…my family still goes through a lot of milk. My husband has it on his cereal every morning with bananas while he reads the two newspapers we have delivered, just part of his daily ritual. BUT I cannot be without it…..just saying!

I remember getting emails last winter and people were upset that they could not leave their home to get milk at the store because of ice storms, etc. It was the number one thing my readers said they needed most. Interesting to me because I grew up on powdered milk.  I always have instant milk and water to mix, so I thought I better get the word out about instant milk. Never run out of milk again. That’s my new motto. Yes, you can still buy powdered milk (some say it is good for baking). I use this Thrive Instant milk for everything. I still buy the store kind for my husband, but I have several cans of this in my food storage stash. I do keep rice milk in my food storage stash as well. An additional positive thing about this product is the taste.  My husband and neighbors who have tried it tell me they enjoy the flavor, almost as much as the real thing.  If you use it as a replacement in your recipes it will never be noticed like powdered products I’ve used in the past.  Give it a try, you’ll grow to love this product and the flexibility it provides.

Let’s talk about some of the ways we use it (or your substitute):

1. Use it on cereal

2. Make bread with it

3. Make cinnamon rolls with it

4. Need it to make macaroni and cheese

5. Great to make shakes

6. Must have to make creamed chip beef on toast

7. Pancakes

8. Waffles

9. Popeye or Swedish Pancakes

10. Pudding

13. Soups

14. Salad dressings

15. Make your own yogurt

16. Hot cocoa or hot chocolate

17. Creamy sauces

18. Smoothies

You know you start thinking about all the ways we use it…we do need to store some! If you think of more reasons why we should store it, I will add them to this list.

Another awesome thing about this canned product is the shelf life: 25 years unopened. Two years if opened. *The shelf life will always depend on the temperature of the room. We cannot store this in a hot garage or the shelf life will be less than stated. Remember start with one can at a time….Let’s be prepared for the unexpected.

    This has probably been long discovered by other people, but it just occurred to me we should take this camping. We have a fridge but cannot carry large amts of milk. Instant milk would be perfect. We’ve been camping for a long time so I have no idea why we have not been doing it. 🙂 Thanks for the reminder.

    When we went camping, years ago, I had powdered milk, cookie mixes, meals in a jar & etc. I’m talking early 1960’s, so I was doing meals & mixes in a jar long before they became the norm!! lol

    Love your book. Full of good information.

    I’ve been doing this about 65 or more years now. I was raised in a small town along distance to a big store. Besides being snowed in for weeks at a time. My Mama was fabulous at, what is now called prepping. We all worked together & helped & learned from her. I started doing my family prepping as a new bride.
    Love to share ideas. Thank You, Linda

      Hi LaRene, oh my gosh, I bet your mama was a great prepper! It’s so funny because we have been preppers way before we knew the word PREPPER! Hugs, Linda
