  1. Does anybody know if they make Lactose Free powdered milk? If so, where can I order it from? Thanks😊
    Ps. I can’t use Milk products, anyone know what I could substitute with?

  2. If you have a recipe calling for 1 can of cream of chicken soup, can you just add 1/3 of your mix plus 1 1/4 cup water direct to the recipe and mix well? Or must you make the soup from your mix in a pan, heat & stir and then add it to the recipe?

  3. I’m so excited to try this! I never make a recipe with canned cream of anything soup because I feel it’s unhealthy.

  4. Is the instant chicken bouillon a powder or those little cubes that you will need to pulverize into a powder?

    1. I used a jar of powdered bouillon – you can see what I used in the second picture of the post. You can pulverize cubes if you prefer.

  5. How do I keep this so it does not go bad? I can not wait to try. This is an item I currently run out of a lot.

    1. You can use this for any cream of soup in a recipe.
      They do make a mushroom bouillon. You could also chop up some cooked mushrooms to add to the soup.
