Fortified Milk

Milk is an excellent source of calories, protein, vitamins and minerals. Fortifying milk with milk powder is a great way to make it even more nutrient rich, for example, the protein content of fortified milk is double that of whole milk (blue top).

Milk powder (sometimes called dried milk) is available in most supermarkets, usually in the same aisle as the long-life milk. Generally, shops only sell skimmed milk powder (it is unlikely that you will find a semi-skimmed or full-cream powdered milk) but skimmed milk powder is fine to use as it has a high protein content.

A jug of fortified milk can be made up in the morning, kept in the fridge and used in cold or hot drinks and on breakfast cereal. It can also be used in any recipe which requires milk such as cheese sauce or rice pudding.

You can find many more tasty and nutritious drink recipes in my new book "Making Every Mouthful Count" which is available on Amazon in paperback or Kindle versions.
