The first thing that I noticed about the powdered milk is how easy it is to mix up. I used cold water and I started to mix it up and it turned into milk very fast and it looked like regular milk. I always use milk in my smoothies in the morning so I replaced regular milk with powdered milk and I used it in my smoothies and I could not tell the difference. I was very impressed with the consistency of my smoothie. I found this powdered milk to be the best powdered milk I have tasted.
