p.s. Carolyn, you are the "inventor"! When you say "we" it is really YOU who invented this recipe. I'm giving credit where credit is deserved.

I am so grateful for your recipe.

You can do a search, there are several brands available. like this one here at netrition.

Kaizen Whey Protein Isolate

Ingredients: Cross flow micro-filtration (cfm) whey protein isolate, cocoa (dutch process), natural and artificial flavors, lecithin, aminogen (proteolytic, peptide-bonded glutamine, sucralose, vitamin b6

Just to let you know if you haven't tried it the OP's recipe is wonderful, and has easy to find ingredients
hey thank you! really the only reason I'm interested in the NOT MILK more is all the protein! I've been weight lifting and working out a ton so this will be great for my muscles. and ya I know I'm doing atkins so i get a ton of protein anyway but it's also only .5 carbs so that helps too...

Thanks for reviving this thread!! I miss milk and usually buy a half gallon of skim milk when I have my son here. Now, I can make this as we need it and I can have it too. I plan to make it with half and half though as this is way cheaper than cream. I don't count my carbs and am not a fanatic at keeping things way low in carb count. So, a couple of grams here and a couple of grams there from using half and half vs cream doesn't make any difference to me.

FYI: for a great glass container with tight fitting lid: WalMart is currently selling both quart and half-gallon sizes. I make up a half-gallon at a time and find it lasts at least 7 days. Love this milk. I use the Organic Valley powdered organic milk -- it's not instant, so I first mix up the powder with about a cup of water and whisk it like crazy before adding all that to the big container with the other ingredients and the rest of the good water.

I make this all the time Carolyn. It is the best.
We have a local Dairy that sells milk in the old fashioned glass bottles. I bought 1/2 gallons and quarts and kept the bottles. I love my milk in these glass bottles in the fridge. It looks so pleasing.

I use half and half, too because I buy it more often. And, of course, you can use the
skim milk as the "milk" part of this recipe instead of the dry milk..

Patti: For the container at Wallie, does it have a spout? Or is it a regular glass pitcher with a lid?

I use the skim milk version and either the half and half or cream.

A couple of days ago I bought Nido, but did compare it to GV nonfat milk powder. Well, even though I bought the Nido, the GV had lower carbs in the serving size. The Nido size was 1/4 cup with 12 g of Carbs and the GV nonfat milk powder 1/3 cup for 12 grams. Go figure.

Yes, it has a spout. Not a tea kettle spout; like a glass cup spout. Works fine and the rubber stopper fits tightly enough so you can shake it up without it going every where.

I wanted to like the Nido, but it tasted "funky" to me..

Patti: Thanks for the information on the "spout"..Will check it out.

FYI: Costco has a great deal on glass "jugs" with lids. For $19 you get 5 different sizes. They all look like the one at WalMart. I didn't buy the Costco ones because only needed the one I already have.

Ella5, I think CC is Carb Countdown. It used to be a brand you could find a few years ago, but I can't find it anymore since the nation has gone away from the low carb phase once again.

I'm not familiar with that recipe..I don't think the taste of buttermilk powder would make it very good to drink, do you?

Glad newbies are enjoying the milk, too..

someone made the recipe with buttermilk powder and whey protein. Since I don't want to invest in yet another expensive protein powder, I was wondering if anyone had tried it with the buttermilk powder but not the whey protein.

I've not been a fan of buttermilk, but I also found the original recipe to be a little flat when I made it last. "dunno" Like it was lacking some crucial flavor that I couldn't divine just from tasting. I suppose I could try and tweak it myself, but I'm terrible at making stuff like this and I hate food failures.

Which recipe are you using now Metqa? I make a quart with 1/3 c. powdered milk, 1/3 c. half and half, 1 pkt. splenda, dash of salt and fill with water. If I wanted it richer I'd probably either switch to heavy cream or a T or 2 more milk powder. I don't drink much of it but DH drinks it every single day! And he's a country boy, lol.

Um, I think the last time I made it I used the original with Powdered Milk, and cream,since that's what I have, splenda and a pinch of salt. I'm a whole milk lover ( I don't drink milk hardly at all but when I do it has to be 2% or higher for my tastes) Maybe I'm just sentivie to the powder milk taste. I'm gonna buy a mini packet of fresh powder milk and try again, It might just be worth the trouble to keep buying CC when I need it.

Metga: I would just add more cream for the whole milk taste. Honestly, I can't even taste the non-fat powdered milk..Now, the stuff with the fat in it, is not good and methinks that the buttermilk stuff would be horrible..

You could always use regular milk instead of the powdered milk, dilute it with water, then add cream, salt, and Splenda.

I also never drink it unless it's cooled in the fridge at least overnight. I don't like it right after it's made but after it sits it's good. I like it much, much better than CC for sure. Good luck to you.
