Ok, so I managed to score a whole can of Nido for free, through the food bank where I work. This is a picture of the can.

Will this work to make pudding in the back country, or do I need to get something else? For that matter, would regular powdered (skim) milk work? I don't want to drink it, just make the pudding.

In the past, I've made "instant" pudding with both Nido and standard non-fat dried milk. It turns out OK with both but is a bit richer with the Nido. When I took pudding along, I would mix the pudding mix and milk ahead of time and parcel it out into individual servings.

Unlike the nonfat milk powder, Nido is actually drinkable... not the same as milk, but probably the closest you'll get to it in a powder. I make all backpacking meals with it.

I have used it that way in the past and it works well. I have also just used the non fat dry milk and in pudding etc and I cannot really tell the difference. The main problem that I have has is that I vac seal them and the Nido ends up being hard lumps so I have pudding and malted milk balls. It probably would not be a problem if I actually mixed them more thoroughly before sealing.

I have been making instant pudding with powdered milk for a couple years. I used to use a empty peanut butter jar and shake it. I now just put it quart ziploc bag break up chunks before adding water then nead it in the bag. If ya get a chance grab a few extra little packets of granola from Mcdonalds. Its is excellent in chocolate pudding,as is crumbled oreos. add nilla wafer cookies to bannana pudding aftef mixing. I never have trouble giving leftovers away!
