I've got it coming out of my ears from WIC - and I can't drink the milk straight because it makes me sick.
I've been making homemade ice cream, but one can only eat just so much ice cream!
The frozen juices can go into your smoothies as well or you can turn them into popsicles. Frozen juice and yogurt or kefir makes good pops.
You can use the apple juice instead of water to boil sweet potatoes...this is yummy too! You can also mix it full strength with mixed grain baby cereal to make baby biscuits.
We have a ton of milk too, and it usually ends up going to waste, or I dont get it all....so I am not much help there. I use it mainly to make gravy and other sauces.
You can make strong juice and freeze it for popsicles. I also use juice to make icing for cookies, cakes, etc by mixing it with powdered sugar. You can also cook/fry apples and other fruits in juice in a saucepan or frying pan.
We get a TON of milk adn juice concentrate (not frozen though) and we always end up giving it away but i'd ratehr be making stuff with it !!
So for biscuits and waffles adn stuff how old cna the milk be. Seriously. Like starting to clump old or even older?
We made 3 batches of icecream tonight and had corn chowder teh other night but running out of ideas too
OH and can you freeze biscuits? do they taste ok when you unthaw them?

Also, we used juice concentrate as sweetener instead of pretty much anything else like sugar or honey. (And cook oatmeal in apple juice!)
Your body is more likely to tolerate yogurt-
I've been planning on making yogurt, but still havent gotten around to it. And I hate to waste. Last time my parents visited, I sent my Dad home with 2 boxes of Cheerios and a galloon of milk!
Sorry, I dont have more advice.

Can you sub for another item you might use more of like p-butter or something? I suspect not, but you might talk to your WIC counselor. Wish I was eligible for WIC!!! I'm right above the income line, but it sure would be a big help!
Like the idea of bartering! Try doing a post in the barter section of CraigsList or check with any of your local moms' groups.
DEFINITELY use the juice concentrate for sweetener.
Also, if you ever make your own bread, there are many recipes that call for milk. It's a great way to up the protein content of bread and you can bake really nutritious, ww loaves for like 25 cents/loaf as opposed to $3 store-bought!
