Fortified Milk

Fortified Milk

Fortifying milk with nonfat instant dry milk adds protein and calories to your diet. Drink the milk by itself, add to a milkshake, or use in place of milk in your favorite recipe.

If the taste is too strong, dilute with liquid milk until palatable, or start with 1/2 cup of dry milk and gradually work up to 1 cup.

For added calories and calcium, substitute Fortified Milk for regular milk when making shakes, macaroni and cheese, puddings, and mashed potatoes.
