I use mostly skim milk. Can that be interchangeable with regular milk?

In all honesty, I think it depends on the recipe, whether or not the fat is an integral part of the make-up! But of so, you can always add a pat of butter to offset the skim milk. (I personally only buy skim). What recipe are you looking at??

It is not a particular recipe. I just wondered if there would be much of a difference in taste or texture.

Some may disagree with me but I'd say yes. Once I made the switch to skim milk, whenever a recipe calls for milk, I've always used the skim. Don't taste a difference. The only exception may be for some baked goods? But not really sure about that.

I only used skim for a long time. Now I keep hearing that we need the milk fat, so I am getting 1% instead. I've never had a problem. And, normally, in place of cream in recipes, I use ff evaporated milk . ..

I use skim milk for exclusively and don't notice any difference. If I ever need something with a bit of fat content in it then I'll add a bit of 1/2 & 1/2 to the skim milk, but I rarely do that.

If you have extra body fat, and most people do, you don’t need added milk fat in your diet.
