We 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).
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.
