This recipe is from "What to Expect when you are Expecting" but is a great way to get calcium today....for me, hubby and our four kids....(yep, four so there will be no more pregancy in our house!)

When making this, I doubled the recipe for 2 of us & we had a very nice breakfast beverage! Used 2% low-fat milk &, except when making banana bread, we really don't care for the bananas being overly ripe, so . . . Still, with the seasonings used, this was wonderfully tasty! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in Healthy Choices]
- 1 cup skim milk or 1 cup low-fat milk
- 1⁄3 cup nonfat dry milk powder
