Personally I don't think you can tell it's skimmed with the powder in, but then I don't mind skimmed milk. I usually chuck it in the blender with a few ice cubes and it thickens up quite a bit
Full fat milk tastes creamy to me, but skimmed tastes like dish water... however! 20 times more fat in semi skimmed might sway the vote haha x
im like you Jim, Semi Skimmed is just too creamy for me now, makes me heave, we only have skimmed in the house now ( poor hubby!) but when i go and stay with the parents they only have SS and my dear mum ALWAYS tells me to 'use half the normal amount with some water in it'.....no mum, it tastes wrong. lol.
i think skimmed milk tastes rank!!! But since it says skimmed on the tin and i want to loose weight thats what i used and it tasted quite good with the chocolate powder in it!! I ve started drinking black coffee! i am starving though i hope it gets easier!!
