Used this recipe when my children were still in grade school. I had never realized that 3 kids could go through 2-3 gallons of milk, often times more, in a weeks time. You know, they had to have a cold glass of milk with warm cookies, a piece of chocolate cake, or a P & J sandwich,"just the bare essentials". This recipe is good with any type cereal, hot or cold. Hope someone finds this useful.

How to Make Sweet Vanilla Milk


  1. Run a little hot water into a 2 qt pitcher.Add 1/4 cup powdered creamer & 1/4 cup sugar, stir well to dissolve. Add 1/2 tsp vanilla. Stir.
  2. Fill pitcher half wull with cold tap water. Add 2 2/3 cup instant nonfat dry milk powder, ix very well. Fill the pitcher the rest of the way full, stir again. Chill and serve. This milk is more palatably to some than straight reconstituted milk.
  3. The coffee creamer gives the milk a richer fullnes, while the sugar and vanilla makes it taste sweet & almost dessert like.
  4. If you must switch to powdered milk and are having trouble with the flavor, this recipe can make the transition easier.
  5. For a gallon of milk, use: 1/2 cup each creamer,sugar & 1 tsp vanilla. Add dash of salt. Be sure to dissolve creamer and sugar in hot tap water first. They do not readily dissolve in cold water.
