Strawberry milk powder?

KatTrum Feb 11, 2011 06:20 PM

Does anyone know where I can get strawberry milk powder in Toronto? Something similar to Nesquik strawberry milk, but in powder form - I want to try a cookie recipe using strawberry powder (so preferably not SlimFast). And yes I know Nesquik makes a strawberry powder, but so far I have been unable to find any. Any help is appreciated!

    I don't know about the strawberry milk powder, but you could try grinding up freeze dried strawberries.

      Kat, you could use Nesquick strawberry milk syrup for the same impact. Just reduce another liquid in the recipe accordingly. Those syrups are found in most supermarkets.

        Hmm, my cookie recipe doesn't actually use any liquids besides vanilla extract and eggs, so not sure where to reduce. I was planning on essentially taking a recipe for reverse chocolate chip cookies but replacing the cocoa powder with strawberry powder.

          Hmm, ok Kat. Reading that made me wonder whether strawberry jello powder might do the trick (provided you reduced your sugar to account for the amount in the jello powder). I did a quick search and found this recipe:

              Good luck Kat, let us know how it goes if you do give it a try. When I saw this I was thinking the possibilities are endless w all the Jello flavours . .. could be lots of fun.

                along the same lines as jello, how about instant strawberry pudding? seems it would be closer to the milk powder? dr. oetker's canadian site lists this:

                  I actually got steered into a different direction and used bubble tea strawberry powder mix from Market Village! And it turned out delicious!

                  But now I'm still intrigued by the jello idea so that will definitely be my next baking project (and definitely a lot cheaper than bubble tea mix).

          If you're willing to buy a whole box, try Carnation Instant Breakfast. The box has three flavors-vanilla, chocolate and strawberry. Each envelope contains enough powder for an eight ounce drink when milk is added. The strawberry one tastes just like the mixed milk drink or the syrup drink.
