How many calories are in half a pint of skim milk?
About 90 calories.
Traditionally, skimmed milk contains 0.5% butterfat. Some dairies sell fat-free skimmed milk, which would contain less.
Most of calories in fat-free skimmed milk come from lactose (milk sugar) and such proteins as casein. Some dairies add non-fat milk solids to milk to improve the flavor (and the nutritional value.) The guy down the road when I was growing up once had a minnow show up when his milk was strained; obviously, his milk would be lower in calories and nutrition.
As an agricultural product, milk varies in composition when they are on good pasture or poor, or eating hay of varying quality. If the cows are stressed by a pack of barking dogs, or a milkmaid who is rough because she just had a fight with her boyfriend, or even if her friend is sold to another farmer. To you, it's just a tasty drink, but cows care.
For the uk: Semi skimmed milk- contains roughly 250-300 calories in a pint Skimmed milk- contains roughly 190-240 calories in a pint Whole milk- contains roughly 350-400 calories in a pint Remember each brand of milk contains different numbers of calories so this is what your milk should be based between.
Usually, you buy half and half that they make at a creamery. Commercial half and half, contrary to what its name implies, is between 10.5 and 18% butterfat. To make your own, you'll need regular whole milk (3.5%) and pure cream. To make a quart of half and half, you take a pint of whole milk and mix it with a pint of cream. Voilà! Enjoy!
