A Substitution for regular milk when you don't have it. I use this in recipes that call for milk such as pancakes, waffles and other quick breads


  1. Measure 3-1/2 quarts (14 cups) of water into a gallon size pitcher.
  2. Add 5-cups of dry milk powder and a 12-ounce can of undiluted evaporated whole milk.
  3. Mix all together.
  4. Chill and serve.
  5. This makes about a gallon. It is richer than plain reconstituted milk. If you must use powdered milk, but prefer a richer product, this is the recipe for you. Children will sometimes tolerate it better than straight reconstituted milk, especially if they are already used to fresh 1% or 2%. If you're going to use this for drinking, try adding chocolate milk mix or chocolate or strawberry syrup.
