A lighter and lower calorie whole milk

bottle of whole milk

I prefer whole milk (read about why here) but sometimes I want a lighter tasting milk.  I find instant chocolate pudding for example has a more chocolaty taste when using a lighter milk.

For years I’ve simply made a lighter whole milk when needed.  All I do is water down whole milk taking the flavor and calories closer to a little less than a 2% milk.  The less flavor can allow other flavors like chocolate to be more prominent.  I would not do this if a recipe calls specifically for whole milk for some reason.

It’s a simple enough idea and easy to do.
