To support care caterers even further, Lakeland Dairies have also released a fortified recipe resource, Fortified Focus: Festive Tipples. The resource demonstrates how to deliver fortified food and drink in a delicious, appetising, and engaging way.

It is packed with delicious alcoholic and non-alcoholic cocktail recipes. The drinks are fortified with Lakeland Dairies 100% Dairy Skimmed Milk Powder, which is full of the goodness of milk and recommended by dietitians for fortification because it has the ideal combination of protein and calories.



Each recipe has been carefully created by Lakeland Dairies, a registered dietitian, and a specialist care home chef. Together they have successfully overcome some of the enormous challenges faced by care caterers when fortifying drinks, namely that of how to devise recipes which are high in protein and still delicious to consume.



Dietitian Rachael Masters who worked on the project comments: “As dietitians, we promote 100% dairy skimmed milk powder for fortification because of the protein content. An ideal milk powder for fortifying would have at least 50 calories and 5g protein per heaped tablespoon (15g)”.

Lakeland Dairies 100% Dairy Skimmed Milk Powder exceeds dietitian’s ideal requirement from a milk powder for fortification, as it has 55kcal and 5.5.g of protein in a single heaped tablespoon.
Lakeland Dairies creates professional dairy products for chefs which have been carefully crafted and treated to have great taste, and to provide a longer life for added convenience in busy kitchens. With a proud heritage in dairy farming, Lakeland Dairies is a 100% farmer-owned and managed dairy co-operative, whose products are made from high-quality milk from the lush green pastures of its 3,200 family farms.

Every valid entrant who requests the guide will receive a free roll of Millac Gold Double piping bags.
