How To Use Up Extra {RAW} Milk

How To Use Up Extra Raw Milk || Homemade Dutch Apple PieWe LOVE our raw milk.  We’ve been getting it since I was pregnant with my son (he’s now 3 1/2).  Once you taste the real stuff there is no going back.

Even my kids can tell the difference in taste.  When my daughter was younger and she tasted conventional milk she would call it “cheese milk” because it tasted strange.

For most of the year we get three gallons of milk a week.  We’ve had times where we barely make it through the week with three gallons (like when I’m pregnant and drinking milk like crazy).  How To Use Up Extra Raw Milk || Homemade Dutch Apple Pie

Then there are times like now where only two members of the family are drinking milk since my son is allergic and I have to avoid it for the baby.  We are barely using two gallons a week now, if that.

That leaves me with a lot of extra milk sometimes.  I don’t want any of it to go to waste.  So I use it to make other things.  My go-to’s are pudding, ice cream and yogurt.

Raw milk is a healthy addition to your diet.  If you are fortunate enough to have access to it you don’t want any of it to go to waste.  So if you find yourself with a surplus of milk, here are over thirty ways to transform it enjoy it.

Take note that most of these recipes can be made with milk that is pasteurized as well.  But the health benefits won’t be quite the same.How To Use Up Extra Raw Milk || Homemade Dutch Apple Pie

    Great resource Mary 🙂 We aren’t going through it as much lately either – not sure why because we can all drink it too! The girls just haven’t been drinking as much in the morning for some reason! I usually make more smoothies and then stock up the freezer with condensed cream of chicken soup for casseroles/easy dinners.

      Thanks, Renee! I was just thinking this morning I should make a bunch of smoothies for Justin’s breakfasts this week 🙂 Sadly Rebecca doesn’t like smoothies. I need to try your soup recipe too. That would be so handy!
