I always have some powdered milk handy, it can be used for hot drinks like tea and coffee or in cooking. I would'nt reccomend it for drinking on its own though, the taste is'nt all that good on its own. I tried some with cereal once and it was just like plain water.

we don;t use powdered milk as we can get fresh milk everyday by dairy in india. but as now i am in kuwait, here we will take skimmed milk and the packet last for one week. and taste will be like fresh milk only. we make tea and coffee with this milk and we make deserts with this milk and we use this milk in indian curry recipes. i don;t like powdered milk taste. it will not be sweet as ordinary milk and tastes bad. i once made one sweet item with it called peda in our india. for it i used powder and the taste was good for that recipe.

We don't use powdered milk. Never have liked it. We do use skim milk which keeps longer than regular milk or 2%. Doesn't spoil so fast and can be kept for a week or more. Since only two of us are here now, we just buy a quart and that will last a full week. Powdered milk reminds of me flavored water. Just doesn't taste right to me but I see your point for using for storage purposes.
