For better or for worse, cow’s milk is something that most families consume in generous amounts. However, when it comes to storing it, most of us realize pretty quickly that fresh milk won’t last more than a couple of weeks at most. As a result, milk is often an item that is frequently omitted from a family’s emergency food storage. But why should we let a short shelf life prevent us from storing a staple that is not only delicious and versatile but that also contains healthy vitamins and minerals? Here are some alternatives to help you to complete your food storage in the best way.

Frozen Milk

If you cannot stand the thought of having a non-cow’s milk in your food storage, you can actually lengthen its shelf life by freezing it. This will allow you to keep it for up to three months, so you will have to rotate your supplies every quarter. You might also want to try freezing just one carton first to test it out. The consistency can change slightly upon thawing, and it is not to everybody’s taste. If you like it, you can then work on filling up your supplies.

Powdered Milk

Powdered milk is probably the best milk for food storage. Not only is it as close to real milk as you will get, especially in taste and texture, but it is cheap and much easier to store taking up very little space. The regular shelf life for powdered milk is about 18 months, but if it is packaged properly, it will be good for much longer than that. It also doesn’t need to be refrigerated, which helps with storage. Instant milk is also an option. It is almost the same as powdered milk but is created through a freeze-drying process.

Soy Milk

Whether you have an allergy to lactose or dairy, you want an easier storage option, or perhaps you simply like the taste, soy milk is a popular alternative. The good thing about soy milk is that you can actually produce it at home. This makes it a good last resort for emergencies. Nutritionally, it has almost as much protein, less fat, and no cholesterol, when compared to regular milk. There is a different taste, so it is another one that you will want to try out first. Soybeans have a shelf life of about 18 months.

Rice Milk

Rice milk is in some places a bit harder to come by than soy milk, but some people prefer the flavor. It is another milk that can be homemade and is free of cholesterol and lactose. It does contain more carbohydrates than regular milk, however. Rice milk also has a thinner consistency than dairy or soymilk. It has about a nine-month shelf life.

Almond Milk

Thanks to a creamy consistency and added flavor, almond milk is a popular milk alternative. It is also something that you can make yourself, tastes good in drinks or with fruit, and has an average shelf life of about a year.

Another alternative is simply to make your own nut milk – and it’s easy! The benefit of this is you can for example store your own almonds and then make almond milk when needed – so long as you have access to a blender. Tutorial here – How To Make Your Own Almond, Nut, Rice and Seed Milks

This Crazy Off Grid Device Literally Makes Drinkable Water From Fresh Air:

According to NASA, the U.S. is expecting a 100-YEAR LONG MEGADROUGHT.


It's already begun. Ask the farmers in California. They know.

Every survivalist knows that water is of critical importance. You NEED an independent water source that you can count on!

As an interesting "survival rehearsal" - imagine that you turned the tap on right now and nothing came out. How long would you last?

But what if there was another water source literally hidden in plain sight. That's right, I'm talking about the atmosphere!

The amazing thing about getting water from the natural moisture in the air... is that it is ALWAYS available.

This gives you real water security!

😳 What Tinnitus Does To Your Brain Cells (And How To Stop It)

After 47 years of studies and countless brain scans done on more than 2,400 tinnitus patients, scientists at the MIT Institute found that in a shocking 96% of cases, tinnitus was actually shrinking their brain cells.

As it turns out, tinnitus and brain health are strongly linked.

Even more interesting: The reason why top army officials are not deaf after decades of hearing machine guns, bombs going off and helicopter noises…

Is because they are using something called "the wire method", a simple protocol inspired by a classified surgery on deaf people from the 1950s...

  1. I store this milk http://www.howtolivea.thrivelife.com/milk-powder.html . This is an instant milk that once you mix it, it tastes like skim milk. My family loves it. And it has a shelf life of 25 years unopened and up to 2 years opened. The key is to mix with cold water, shake, place lid on jar and allow to mellow in the fridge over night.
    The instant milk is for drinking, for baking, I use the powdered milk here http://www.howtolivea.thrivelife.com/powdered-milk-1.html. It also has a shelf life of 25 years unopened and up to 2 years once opened.

  2. Another milk option that lasts for 6-9 months unopened is UHT milk. The taste is just a little bit different because of the pasteurization process, but it’s really quite good if you get used to it. It’s pretty prevalent in most other parts of the world (I can vouch for China, France, and Mexico personally). The beauty of UHT milk is that it doesn’t have to be refrigerated, so this can really save up refrigerator and freezer space when prepping.
