Powdered Milk is such a very versatile product.  Here are even more uses for your Powdered Milk.

Homemade Bisquick Mix Recipe


8 cups flour

1 ¼ C Non Fat Dry Milk

¼ C Baking Powder

1 Tbl Salt

2 Cups Shortening


Combine flour, baking powder and salt. Cut in shortening. Store in tightly closed container in a cool place. Use anywhere Bisquick is called for. 

Hot Cocoa Mix (


10 cups dry milk powder

4 3/4 cups sifted confectioners' sugar

1 3/4 cups unsweetened cocoa powder

1 3/4 cups powdered non-dairy creamer


1. In a large mixing bowl, combine milk powder, confectioner's sugar, cocoa powder, and creamer. Stir till thoroughly combined. Store cocoa mixture in an airtight container. Makes about 15 cups mix, or enough for about 45 servings.

2. For 1 serving, place 1/3 cup cocoa mixture in a coffee cup or mug, and add 3/4 cup boiling water. Stir to dissolve. Top with dollop of whipped cream or a few marshmallows, if desired.


This next mix makes the equivalent of 9 cans.  I calculated the cost of making this mix.  It cost $2.78 to make the equivalent of 9 cans worth.  If you were to buy the big brand name, the cost for 9 cans would be $12.51.  So, to make this (not to mention that it does not have any fat!) you would save $9.73 which is a 78% savings!

Condensed Soup Mix (


2 cups nonfat dry milk powder

3/4 cup cornstarch

2 tablespoons dried minced onion

1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

1/4 cup chicken bouillon powder

1 teaspoon dried basil (optional)

1/4 teaspoon dried thyme


Using an air tight container combine dry milk, cornstarch, onion flakes, pepper and chicken bouillon. If desired also add basil and thyme. Mix well and store in the refrigerator or freezer.

When using the mix combine 1/3 cup of the mix with 1 1/4 cups of water in saucepan. Cook and stir until thickened.
