A recipe calls for 1/3 cup of nonfat dry milk. What can I use as a substitution?

I think we would need to know more about what you are making in order to suggest a substitution. Perhaps evaporated milk? There might be too much liquid though.

I have a recipe for apple fritters, to be fried in oil. It calls for 1/2 cup non fat dry milk powder. I am trying to find a suitable substitute. I have read that I can use evaporated milk, but I'm not sure how that will work out. I have a canister of carnation malted milk powder. Would that work?

Try looking for non-dairy substitutes on dairy allergy web sites, or on vegan web sites since vegans eat no animal products. This is an example:


You might need to go to a store that specializes in foods for people with allergies.

Soy or almond milk would work

I would like to know if I can use sweet dry whey in recipes instead of powdered milk. If not, what can I use it for? It is so much cheaper than regular powered milk. Thanks and God bless!

If you can't find an answer, I'd call or email the company that makes the whey and ask them. Also look up other companies that make whey and check out there web sites and ask them too.


Good luck

Although Whey is sold as "high protein", it is actually the GLUE in milk, and causes mucous like mad in those who are prone to sinus infections, and/or are lactose intolerant.
I'd go with non-fat milk, and not use it too often. It's worth paying attention. God bless you. : )

Substitute milk for the liquid in the dough. You may need to add just a touch more to get the dough to the correct consistency, but you should be fine doing that.
