Chocolate Milk and Milk Shakes: Powdered Milk Food Storage Recipes

Make food storage a special TREAT for your kids! (Yes, you read that correctly!!) Powdered milk makes EXCELLENT chocolate milk or milkshakes using NO ice cream and there is no hint of the powdered milk! Finally, a healthy-ER approach to milk shakes and chocolate milk that will save you money and help you rotate your powdered milk! Thanks to all of you who told me about this tip from http://www.hillbillyhousewife.com/magicmilkshakes.htm. It is so good!!  So wonderful to find more food storage recipes!

Chocolate Milk made with Powdered Milk:
I use Nesquik mix. It has less sugar than other leading brands and adds in more calcium. If you are already drinking powdered milk and have some chilled in the fridge, then just follow the directions on the package for mixing it with milk. If you aren’t drinking powdered milk, you’ll want to mix this in a juice pitcher since it needs to be chilled and you’ll want to give it a quick mix before you serve it.

One Quart Measurements (Most juice pitchers are one quart)

One Quart Water
3/4 C. Dry Powdered Milk
1/2 C. Nesquik (other chocolate flavorings may be different-to figure out how much you’ll need, remember there are 32 ounces in a quart which means there are 4 eight ounce cups in a quart. Most directions will tell you how much to add based on one 8 ounce glass, so multiply that amount by 4 for the total amount you’ll need of your chocolate flavoring)

Mix dry ingredients together (this makes it dissolve much easier and faster) and mix into water. Let chill for 4-6 hours.

Chocolate Milk Shake with NO ice cream:-makes two 8-ounce cups
This one I know is hard to believe but it SO delicious! I don’t think I’ll ever make the kind with ice cream again!

1/2 C. Water
3/4 C. Dry Powdered Milk
1/3 C. Chocolate Powder (like Nesquick or equivalent)
2 C. Ice

Layer ingredients in your blender as listed and blend until smooth. Serve immediately! Spruce it up with half of a banana for fun!

If you want a great variation, that tastes like it is a Jamba Juice “Peanut Butter Moo’d” then add one banana cut into 1 inch slices and 2 spoonfuls of peanut butter. The peanut butter and banana make it even smoother and add such a great complimentary taste.

Well just writing about this has made me crave another one…so…yeah…I’m going to go make myself one. ENJOY!!

    I just made this recipe and it is SO good!!! I did the variation with the peanut butter and banana and it tastes just like Jamba Juice. I will be making this all summer long. What a great recipe. It seemed like a lot of powdered milk at first but you can’t even taste it and it gives a great texture. So delicious.

    Try this with Ovaltine instead of Nesquik and it makes it a little healthier
