dry milk and the best coffee ever

Frugal FridaySo I’m finally joining in the fun over on Biblibal Womanhood for Frugal Fridays. It may not be news to other folks but my latest frugal happy is DRY MILK POWDER!  My mom and sisters all grimaced when I told them this but it really is a miracle for us and is helping to stretch our milk MUCH further! I have loved this website which gives great instructions and ideas for powdered milk usage.

Jon was ecstatic when he realized we can even make sweetened condensed milk with powdered milk, so excited was he that he jumped in and made the first batch, why? So that we could make my aunt’s fabulous coffee drink that he is addicted to greatly enjoys!  Basically it’s… 8-10 cups fresh, strong coffee, one can of sweetened condensed milk (or make your own!), a few squirts of chocolate. Mix well, refrigerate and serve over ice. It is the perfect summertime coffee splurge… or wintertime, or whenever the fancy strikes.  No more pricey Starbucks for us!

  4. OK, I found where the sweetened condensed milk was hiding on the other website. Thanks for the tip about that site too. I’ll have to explore some more. It looks like there’s a goldmine hiding in there, all ours for the taking if we will only dig, dig, dig. 😉
