Fruity Milk Syrup
Its been said on more than one occasion that powdered/instant milk doesn’t taste the same as fresh milk. Well, that’s true. But you still need to make sure and have a source of vitamin D to balance out your emergency pantry nutrition. One way to make powdered/instant milk more palatable is to add a flavoring to it. Some use chocolate syrup, some use a commerically available vanilla or strawberry powder, some recommended a drop or two of vanilla extract, etc. Below is a recipe for making your own fruit flavored milk syrup. Really easy, and my kids thought it was fun and tasty when we tried it.
2 cups white sugar
1 cup water
1 (0.13 ounce) package unsweetened, fruit-flavored soft drink mix (on brand name is Kool-Aide)
In a saucepan over medium high heat, combine sugar and water. Cook, stirring, until mixture comes to a boil. Boil for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Stir in drink mix powder. To serve: Stir 1 tablespoon syrup into 8 ounces milk, or to taste.
