Many people like to do their stuff themselves – some for kicks, some for the satisfaction of making it in their own kitchen, some for hygiene reasons and others because they like the quality of homemade foods.

So, while skimmed milk is readily available in the market, here’s a recipe for those who want to make it at home in their own kitchen.

It’s a bit time consuming as the process of skimming the fat has to be repeated twice, but you get good, tasty fat-free milk. This homemade skimmed milk, which is devoid of fat and low in sodium, is healthy even for those with high blood pressure and heart diseases.

This homemade skim milk still has fat? Not zero fat? Because it''s in the nut.val

Tarla Dalal    Dear Tessie, You are correct. The fat count is high in the nutritive value table. The reason is that the calculation as shown in this recipe is based on its ingredient - full fat milk. However since the process of skimming is done at home as shown in this recipe, it is difficult to find out the fat content of final skim milk. The ready made skim available in the market has 0.2 g of fat in a cup (200 ml). The estimated fat content of this homemade skim milk can be estimated to be slightly higher than ready made skim milk.
