It goes hand in hand with our favourite cereal and gives our coffee that creamy hit, but what if we told you there were other ways to use milk that were nothing short of clever!
Our friends at The Dairy Kitchen are experts when it comes to cooking with the creamy stuff, and so, they’ve shared a few milk hacks with us. From using milk to make icy cold smoothies to ensuring your meat is gorgeous and tender:
Four clever milk hacks
- The light way to make creamy soups
Thought the only way to make your soup nice and creamy was with cream or sour cream? Well turns out milk is just as much of a winner when it comes to making delicious smooth and silky soup.
2. Reduce the saltiness of feta and haloumi
Some types of feta and haloumi can pack quite the salty punch. Eliminate this by soaking your feta or haloumi in milk for 10 minutes.
3. Milk ice cubes
A great way to use milk just before the use by-date. Pour milk into ice cube trays and freeze. You can then use them for your morning breakfast smoothie.
4. Marinate and tenderise meats
Dry chicken is a friend to no one. So try this method that soaks your poultry or meat in milk for one hour before cooking. You’ll have a deliciously tender and moist result.
Serve up fresh smashed avocado and tomato on toast with a sprinkle of feta. And if you don’t like the salty taste that feta delivers, simply use the trick above!
This hearty soup doesn’t need heavy cream to make it glossy and indulgent. It uses the milk trick above to create a smooth and rich consistency.
