Milk Powder Makes For Flavorful And Convenient Coffee While Traveling
If you love your morning cup of joe with a splash of milk, but you have to travel and taking perishable food isn't feasible, try using milk powder instead.
Milk powder is simply dehydrated milk. It provides the same nutrients and flavor as fresh milk in a much more transportable package, with a shelf life of at least 18 months.
Dried coffee creamer is also an option, but they don't have the richer flavor and consistency of milk powder. You can even choose between skin/nonfat or whole milk powder.
Powdered skim milk tends to dissolve more easily. You can add powder directly to your coffee cup while your coffee is brewing or wait until after you've poured the coffee.
One teaspoon of powdered milk per cup is equal to a splash of milk. You can even add the powder to the coffee grounds in a French press or drip cone so there's no need to mix.
While traveling, it's best to store your milk powder inside a ziplock bag or airtight container away from direct sunlight to preserve its taste, quality, and shelf life.
