Five Ways to Use That Last Splash of Milk

Posted on June 6, 2018

It happened again! You lift the milk carton and feel that familiar not-quite-empty weight and wonder what to do with that last splash of a2 Milk®. Not quite enough for a whole bowl of cereal, but you certainly don’t want it to go to waste. We say, treat yourself! With less than a cup of creamy goodness left, you can quickly jazz up any breakfast or snack.

When there’s not enough milk to pour a tall glass or top off your cereal, get creative. June is National Dairy Month, so we decided it’s the perfect time to think beyond the glass with these recipes to use up milk.

1. Make a mug cake.

2. Prep your breakfast.

5. Become a barista.

Transform that basic cup of Joe into a gourmet coffee. Mix in leftover milk, a spoonful of caramel sundae topping sauce and a square or two from a chocolate bar. For an extra indulgence, top your mug with a spoonful of rich coconut cream!

Getting hungry? Grab some a2 Milk® (it’s easier on your digestion!) and whip up something just for you! And, we won’t tell if you decide to sip the last bit of milk straight from the carton. Enjoy!
