Non-fat dried milk powder is going to up the calories significantly.
The recipe does suggest using part or all of your milk allowance to replace some or all of the water if you so desire (but that of course, increases the calories).
Even though the processed varieties list whey or dry-milk, to get under the 25 calorie limit, the amount is going to be very minimal. The equivalent of no more than a tablespoon of skim milk (5 to 6 calories).
So it you want, add a tablespoon of skim milk and there you go, bringing the calories to 25 or so. About the same as the Swiss Miss diet hot cocoa.
