Years ago I remember stocking on Herbies drug store shelves:

3 packs of 250ml tetras of ultra pastuerized milk, I would also be happy with condensed milk in a tetra. No fridge.

Checking about 5 stores so far in Barrie has led me to a lot of new Flavoured milks or milk alternatives (soya, rice). While I have no issue with trying alternatives, I do want to explore unflavored options first.

The intended use is for a really simple Alfredo sauce, so chocolate or starwberry or ........ is not really an option I am interested in during a 2-4 day trip.

Obviously milk powder or a store bought powered sauce is an alternative, I am just not interested right now.

So any leads are appreciated.

North end Zhers, Shoppers, Wallmart, A&P, Dunlop No Frills.... so far :(

I don't have any leads for you...Sorry..,

but Rice milk is fantastic!! Super tasty (much better than soy). Its a fantastic alternative if you can't find regular milk. Pick some up and try it on your cereal- you might just get hooked! :D
When ever I can, I usually now prefer rice milk to regular milk just on taste alone.

I don't know how well it works for alfredo- but its worth making a trial dinner at home.

Thing about rice milk is that it's empty - almost no protein at all.

I've been buying 1L UHT cow's milk at Loblaws for years now.

My kids can't take dairy products so at home we use Almond milk from Loblaws, Metro and most health food stores. Obviously not a good idea if nut allergies are an issue.

Powdered skim milk is just coloured water so I use non-instant whole powdered milk found at the Bulk Barn when canoe tripping.

Thanks for the replies so far.

A litre of chocolate milk, is a good single serving for our family and provides an extra temporary water bottle for the next few days. Otherwise a one litre size of anything, except wine, just needs a fridge which I am not interested in portaging. :lol:

I am leaning towards the rice milk just because it is available in the smaller (250ml) size, and I scaled the Alfredo sauce to that size.

Again Thanks, I know it is available I just have to keep looking here in South Central O for the three packs.

UHT Milk or cream is a great solution for Tripping. Need a lot buy a 1 litre container. Just remember it will sour like normally packaged milk after openning so its great for cereal. Just want small amounts for your tea, coffee or K.D. bring coffee creamer cups like the ones found in any resturant. They stay fresh without any refrigeration. The packaging is easy to carry out as well, just rinse.

Stosh:
Not sure if you ever found a place to purchase UHT Milk.
I notice that you live in Barrie, ON. That may be too far south for most stores to carry it.
Suggest you try stores in North Bay, Sturgeon Falls etc.
I recall a young person who liked to drink milk, was living in the bush, with little refrigeration available, was buying UHT milk in Sturgeon Falls.

Thanks for the new ideas, I will try some places further up the road during some of the ski and snowshoe trips this month.
