It's not in our area either. However, you can make your own very easily with CarolynF's recipe: (This is really good - try it!)

Homemade Low Carb Milk

I was experimenting to make a cheaper version of CC milk and I do think it is pretty darn good.

Homemade Low Carb Milk

One cup:

1-2 Tbs. of heavy cream (depending on how creamy you want it)
1 1/3 Tbs. of instant dry milk
1 cup of cold water
sprinkle of salt
tiny sprinkle of splenda (if you want)

Just put the ingredients in and shake it up. Refrigerate.

Calories 65 if 1 Tbs. of cream is used, 110 if 2 Tbs. of cream is used
5 grams of fat / 10 grams of fat
3 carbs / 3 carbs
2 grams of protein / 2 grams of protein

Of course, you can double/triple, etc. the recipe. But it's pretty cheap to make.

Actually, I live in WY, and my Wal*Mart still carries it, so it is still being produced.

But I make Carolyn's low carb milk (jlatislaw posted it above). Here is the link to the original thread on that.

I live in Virginia and was in Richmond last week. Bought the chocolate Carb Countdown milk there at Walmart. They did sell the white Carb Countdown milk, also. Hope this gives you a little hope.

My WalMart still carries it, but I, too, have been making Carolyn's recipe instead of buying it. Can anyone give me tips on making it into chocolate flavored? I think I tried one time and couldn't get the cocoa powder to mix in. Thanks!

The best way to do this is to heat cocoa powder and some water in a saucepan...like you would make hot chocolate. Then add your Splenda to taste and so it dissolves. You have to continuously stir this with a little whisk or fork. Then when you get your chocolately sauce..Add it to your milk and shake. You also could use the Hershey's..however it has SAlcohols in it and makes my tummy growl.

Thanks so much for the tips. It makes perfect sense that heating the milk and cocoa would make it come together better. Duh! I'll try it!

I know someone has probably already asked and answered this but can the sub low carb milk be used to make yogurt? In other words, has any one actually tried and succeeded in making yogurt with it?

Does the chocolate really taste like the Hood brand? I refuse to pay $3-something for a half gallon, if I can make it cheaper, I'm sure gonna try!

I use it to make yogurt all the time. But I must say that I do use "my" version (see the link I posted above) of the milk. Not sure if the added Calcium Casenate (sp) helps it or not. I've never tried it without it. (And I do usually, but haven't always, add a little more instant milk pwd when I make yogurt. I have made it without the added milk pwd.) Need to make more tomorrow.

This is even better than the CC milk..And, you can "cream" it up by adding more
cream to it if you want..

The chocolate version is very good. It's not as "thick" as the CC milk, but you can vary how much chocolate you want in it.

I can't find CC Hood Milk either... I've literally spent hours on the phone with various Wal-Mart's, Kroger and Hood!

I've called 1-800 wal-mart to request it and now Kroger hopefully will carry it again. Hood told me to call corporate and request it and if enough people request it.. maybe we'll get it back

It has been about 3 weeks since our Wal-Mart quit carrying it. For reference.. I live in Indiana. I will try the recipe above.... Thanks

Our local walmart stopped carrying it too; seems I bought the last of the chocolate milk a couple weeks ago and I haven't seen it stocked since.

Yes, Billie did:

Per Billie, for 1 qt:

3 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/3 cup nonfat dry milk powder
Dash salt
1 drop Sweetzfree (or 1/2 packet Splenda)
3 TBsp Calcium Caseinate
1/2 tsp Lecithin (it's fine without this)

Place all ingredients in blender, and blend on low for about 30 seconds.

Will keep in fridge for about 10 days.

I added the Calcium Caseinate. You can omit it. It isn't in Carolyn's original recipe.

Thank you. Where would I find calcium caseinite? Is it a thickener or just calcium for the sake of calcium?

Hmmmm I was gonna say Netrition. Didn't know they weren't carrying it anymore. I'm on my second container, and I'm pretty sure I got both from Netrition. Think I got this one with my last order, but thats been a few months ago.
Soooo,,,, I guess I'd just have to say to do a "google" (I use GoodSearch.com) search for "Calcium Caseinate".
Also, do a search on here for it (to learn more about it), as tho I use it, I really don't know a lot about it. Do an advanced search, and type in Scott123 in the users box. I learned about it from him.
I'm not really sure if it thickens it much, tho I think it might a little, but it does add calcium.

Oh, the Lecithin I added too! That is to help keep it from seperating. It can also be omitted.

I actually have some calcium caseinite, but I rarely use it in the milk. I think it tastes just fine without it.
