6 Uses for Raw Milk

uses for raw milk

Sometimes I find myself overrun with raw milk.

So what’s a girl to do with so much extra milk? What elsemake stuff!

Here’s a few of the things we made with our extra milk:

Homemade Vanilla Pudding

Sarah from the Healthy Home Economist has a great video tutorial on making pudding.  I changed up her recipe slightly by using a ¼ cup of SUCANAT, a heaping tablespoon of honey and 4 drops of liquid stevia  in place of the ¾ to ½ cup of SUCANAT.  I’m not a huge fan of the SUCANAT flavor in my pudding.

Homemade Yogurt

We love homemade yogurt..well, Wyatt and I do anyway.  It is a great way to use up and raw milk since your yogurt will have a longer shelf life than the milk.

Read here  for some ways to make homemade yogurt.

Homemade Ice Cream

Our recipe is a hand me down from my husband’s family.  It’s not healthy except for the raw milk.  I’ve tried to change the ingredients and I’ve tried new “healthier” recipes but nothing satisfies my husband like homemade ice cream made with sweeten-condensed milk and white sugar.

You win some, you lose some.

If you need a good recipe or two or three for ice cream I recommend Just Making Ice Cream.

Orange Creamsicles

Who doesn’t love a good orange creamsicle?!  Problem is most of the ones at the store don’t have real orange and probably not even real cream.  Nourished Kitchen’s orange creamsicle recipe is one that I use often.

Clabber it

Have you ever heard of clabbering milk?

It’s about as easy as forgetting to take wash off the line before it rains.  You just let it out there.  Of course you don’t leave the milk in the rain, you just leave it sit on your kitchen counter. In a few days it will thicken and get clumpy.  That is clabbered milk! Once it’s clabbered stick it in the refrigerator.

It was pretty tasty in the smoothies.

Here’s Little Man enjoying a clabbered milk smoothie. (As you can see this was before we brushed our hair..and pre-fire too!)

Make Milk Kefir

I have never done this but it is an option.  I have some water kefir grains that I’m trying to figure out.

Bonus: just drink more milk! Increasing your raw milk intake is a good thing.

 What would you do if you found yourself with extra raw milk? Would you try one of these or do something different?

Until Next Time,

Be Blessed

 

**note – all of these, except clabbering, would work with store-bought milk as well.

  1. An organic farmer friend of mine told me to put it on my garden – the plants love it! And if you separate the whey and just use that, it’s better because the smell doesn’t attract animals (like my dog 🙂
