3 Simple Solutions for Extra Milk

Delicious with cookies, essential for cereal, and popular as a beverage in its own right, milk is a must-have in your refrigerator. There are many different types of milk—from whole to skim and almond to soy—but they all share one common and ever-intimidating factor: an expiration date.

You know that helpless feeling: watching a half-used gallon of milk approaching the point of no return. Well, we’ve got answers! Check out three of our favorite, creative ways to make the most of extra milk, before things go sour.

1. Make a Favorite Sauce

Typical alfredo sauces call for heavy whipping cream, but our easy Greek Yogurt Alfredo Sauce uses the leftover milk you already have on hand (along with some Greek yogurt) to make a healthier and delicious version of this classic Italian taste. Double the batch to feed the whole family!
