Pretend Milk

Yum, powder milk, double yum, powdered skim milk!

Our milk choices are limited here. You don't exactly think of fields of grazing dairy cows when you think of Sri Lanka.

The supermarket sells long life milk that doesn't need to be refrigerated in one liter sizes, about 150 Rupees per box. It comes in all different varieties. It seems strange at first buying unrefrigerated milk, but it tastes the same.

They do sell what I guess is pasteurized milk, but it's a bit more expensive.

What is more popular here is powdered milk, big selection of it. I can make the same amount of milk for about 1/3 the price of the long life milk.

I didn't think I would like it, but I use it for cereal and drink it occasionally and overall it's not bad. There is a vanilla flavored powdered skim milk that we buy sometimes and mix in with the other powdered milk to add a hint of flavor.
