share this article

The great chefs of the world have secrets that make their creations tastier...and one of those secrets is milk! Here are some simple ways to make milk part of your every day cooking:

  • Add richness, tenderness and moisture to bread dough and other baked goods by replacing the water with fresh milk.
  • Add extra calcium and protein to muffins, quick breads, pancakes and cookies by adding powdered milk with the dry ingredients.
  • Powdered milk mixed into meatloaf, meat balls or casseroles helps them hold shape their shape better and adds calcium.
  • Whip skim or 1% milk into foam using a manual or battery-powered milk frother or an immersion blender with a whip attachment.
  • Whip cold milk then warm it in the microwave (in a tall cup) to dollop on top of coffee or hot chocolate for that specialty café effect.
  • Make a richer and more nutritious hot chocolate from a powdered mix by replacing the water with milk.
  • Add milk to homemade soups for extra flavour and nutrition. Reduce the amount of water or broth called for by up to half and replace it with milk, adding it at the end of cooking (make sure you don’t let the soup boil).
  • Chill your glass in the refrigerator or freezer for about 15 minutes before pouring in milk for an extra-frosty drink.
