Hmmm..... This sounds good. Thanks Carolyn.
Also a note. Cathie mentioned not wanting to freeze the CC milk. Just to let you know, it does not freeze well. Well, it freezes fine, but it doesn't thaw well. LOL It seperates. I found this out because I had some in a refrigerator in my garage which got to cold and froze stuff, including 2 cartons of CC!!! I have managed to use on carton by making yogurt, which wasn't very good, and using it to cook with. I'm afraid I'll probably end up throwing the other one out, which I sure hate to do. It is so expensive.

I use the CC milk all the time to make yogurt. It does well, except when it had frozen & searated. I wonder if Carolyn's faux milk would make yogurt? I used to use instant milk to make yogurt, and even put extra powder in it to make it richer. But that is too high carb now. So this just might work. Hmmmmm.... Whatcha think?

Here's my formula for 1 liter of milk.

I thought I was making one quart but it turned into one liter as I
forgot I was adding other things.

This is how it tastes best to us:

Home Made Low Carb Milk
One Liter

4 c. good water
5 tbs. plus 1 tsp. whole milk powder
1/3 tsp. salt
1-2 pkg. sugar sub.
1/4/1/3/or 1/2 c. cream (this is entirely up to you)

Place everything except cream into a blender and whirl away.
Add cream and gently stir it in on low. (You could easily make butter)

Chill, drink, enjoy.
The only thing we don't have in this is the added vitamin D.
However we also don't have any chemicals in this.

Milk Separation CC Hood Dairy

I froze 2-1/2 gallons of the milk. Well the cartons burst at the seams and
we had to put the cartons into big pans and defrost. Yes it separated,
BUT i put the milk into my big blender and whirled it all back together
and it was fine. However, I won't be freezing it again.

I would love to try to make yogurt with this new LC milk formula.
I would use my Greek yogurt starter.

I tried blending mine back together, and it sorta did, but it still didn't make good yogurt. The yogurt seperated again. And it is much more bitter.

I may try blending the carton I still have, and see if I can use it better, and not have to throw it out. I hate throwing stuff out. Mine didn't freeze that solid that it burst the cartons. Thanks for "reminding" me about blending it.

I wish I had some whole dried milk. I only have some non-fat, and it is pretty old. I'll look for the Nida or Nido. I think I used Nida (which was made by Nestle) when I was in Saudi.

Yes Billie

It is made by Nestle. You can Google it and get various places to
send for it. It is expensive and they can kill you with the shipping.
I think you can purchase it from Mexican grocers. Make some phone
calls in your area. Oh by the way I blended the heck out of the separated milk and made custard with it and it was great. I'm going to try to find
it in my area by phone. It's too expensive running all around in the car
looking for it. None of my local grocers carry it.

I'll let you know if I find any.

I think I've seen the Nida at my local Internation food store. It may also be somewhere in my Wal*Mart, but not sure.

I used some of my thawed CC milk in pudding the other day. It worked well in that. Also used some in the chocolate mayo cake I made yesterday.
Oh, and I used in a few times in biscuits. Works very well in that.
I'll probably use it up those ways.

Hey thanks Carolyn for the great recipe! I made some tonight but all the store had was non fat milk powder. It was good. I am going to get the Nido whole milk powder to see if it comes closer to the cc milk.

I cn get Nido in my local Asian market which caters to Indians. There are 2 brands of powdered whole milk, but Nido gets the best reviews. Sometimes I can find it in Walmart in the hispanic section, but lately it hasn't been there.

WOW. I just tried this and it IS just like milk. I had been buying CC milk at Wal-Mart, but this is just as good AND it is soooo easy to adjust the creaminess. THANK YOU!

Hi gang..

We have our own little dairy going here.. Honestly, this would be good enough for the family, too. Just make sure they get their Vitamin D other places..or go outside while they drink it..LOLOL. I'm going to try to "trick" my dh into drinking this..He doesn't care for the CC milk, but I think he'll like this.

thanks, Carolyn! i too had trouble finding cc milk (and here in L.A. it's $3.99, no Superwalmarts yet!) Whenever i buy a carton i practically spend sleepless nights coming up with ways to use it up before it spoils (not to mention i had to make myself get "used" to the "flavor" since the counts were so good!) Now i can whip up a batch of lc milk whenever i need/want it that actually TASTES like milk???? Can't wait to try it (and yogurt too!!)

I'm sure I'll be able to find the whole powder...plenty of ethnic stores in my 'hood!

yum

I made some today- I went to Walmart and found the Nido dry milk with no problem. I think it is very tasty. I like the idea of being able to make a fresh batch when I need some milk-even our carb countdown goes bad--we just don't use that much milk. The carb count for this is very low. I'm very happy with the recipe.

If anyone makes yogurt with this milk please post your results. I'd love to be able to stop buying CC and use this homemade one. I would be using skim powder, but adding extra cream to make up for the lost fat. Can't find whole powdered milk near me. Maybe I'll just try a one cup batch and see what happens.

I think the milk recipe is going to come in handy if they stop making cc milk. I like it but I still like the cc milk too. I plan on still buying the cc milk because I want to make sure its still available to us and when it isnt I'll switch to just making it. I still want to try it with nido before I confirm that thought though lol.

Theoretically, making yogurt destroys the milk sugars, so to make Greek yogurt you can make up the milk according to directions and add cream for extra fat if you want.

And let us know if that works for you. I've done it in the past, but no recent results.

BTW, you need to drain Greek yogurt too.

I'm going to experiment and make my dh some faux Chocolate Milk..I got a jug of good water and will use that to mix it with. I think I will only make 1/2 gallon..so will refer to
Barbo's larger recipe.

I think I will use the Diet Hot Chocolate Mix for the "chocolate" taste. Heat up a bunch of the good water..and twirl in my bullet..then see what happens..I'll let you guys know how it turns out. Of course, it won't be as thick as the CC Chocolate stuff..

I used this milk this morning to make the MOST fabulous shake (almost like soft serve ice cream):
  • 1 cup LC milk
  • 1/4 cup Peanut Flour
  • 2 scoops chocolate whey powder w/ fiber (I used "Metabolic ReSet"
  • 1 oz. cream cheese (optional; didn't really notice it)
  • s.f. chocolate syrup (I used Davinci's)
  • Lots of ice

Blend together well all but ice. Then add ice until blended well. ENJOY. My DH couldn't believe how good it tastes. Thank you Barbo

I tried the milk today and am I impressed!!
I followed your recipe and used my hand held blender for just a few seconds and it was delicious. I had used refrigerated water and it was so good I drank the whole thing and made two more cups for DH to try. Thank you so much for this idea. CC milk is iffy in this area and now I don't care!

Thanks, ladies..Wow..that shake sounds nommie..Patti..

I made my Chocolate Milk

To Barbo's recipe I added 4 Tbs. of cocoa and sweetener to taste. I did slip in some Not Sugar to thicken it up a bit. Put everything in the blender and poured it into my plastic jug. I made 2 recipes of it for a half gallon..It is very nommie and probably would make a great chocolate peanut shake..

I said back in post #23--

Try WalMart, only look in the Hispanic section or by baby foods since it is a product they use for growing children. Brand name is Nido by Nestle.

You are welcome

All I did was multiply it out.

I am glad to note CarolynF that it only takes 4 tbs. cocoa
and some extra ss to make chocolate milk, my fav.

Today I tried something a little different. I mixed 1/4 c. half and half, 3/4 c. water, a dash of salt, a sprinkle of Splenda and 4 t. dried milk. Mixed with my hand held blender. I actually think I like this even more than the original. Either way it's a great sub for CC!

I tried this recipe today and maybe it's just my taste buds but I thought it tasted too much like powdered milk. I prefer the "NOT MILK" recipe better. Both recipes taste like powdered milk when first made and at room temp, but the "NOT MILK" one was better once cold. Neither will be exactly like real milk imo, but better then CCD taste wise. I use CCD milk in things but never did like to drink it straight from the carton. Only the chocolate CCD is good from the carton.
