Foods made with powdered milk will have fewer calories and less cholesterol than those made from whole milk. Adding additional milk to the recipe will enhance the nutritive value of the recipe. In any recipe calling for milk, simply add water for the milk called for in the recipe. Recipes call for many types of milk. The following recipes can be made from powdered milk (the type from the dry-pack cannery).
