I hated milk as a kid. It could be that my mom forced me to drink it every morning before school. I plead with her to stop because it made my breath stink. She thought I was an idiot, and ignored my desperate cries. She did the same thing with cod liver oil. I should have called CPS.
Now, that my mom doesn’t force me to drink milk, my MIL has entered the picture. She is determined to find me the best milk substance(s). I think she is trying to butter me up (haha, pun) for keeping milk around for future progeny.
And butter me up she did.
Meet my refrigerator’s new contents:
Lucky Layla Farms is a locally operated dairy store, which offers rBGH free milk products and more. Please note that I have never been to the farm, and that Lucky Layla Farms has no idea who I am. My review is my own.
MILK: DIVINE! One sip brought me back to my childhood in India when we drank milk produced from our very own family cow. Yep, we had a cow. She was adorable. I really doubt it’s the best for anyone watching their calories as it tastes like drinking beautiful cream! If you’re not into that, excuse me while I have my moment.
I know that there is a debate about consuming raw v. pasteurized milk. I have read several studies, theories and opinions prior to drinking this, and have based my consumption on my research, my opinion and what’s best for me. I encourage you to make your own decision.
YOGURT: DELICIOUS! Everything about the yogurt tastes natural! It’s not overly sweet and you can really taste the fruit in the drink. I was tempted to throw this into a smoothie for breakfast but I would enjoy this more alone. No need for adulteration.
BUTTER: You know I saved this for last on purpose, right? There are no words. It’s everything that the sticks of butter should be, but isn’t! It’s the butter that you find yourself dreaming of when you have a slice of bread. I can promise you that I will never use this in cooking as I want to savor each bite.
Looks like I need to bake some bread.
Have you tried raw milk? Do you like milk? Do you drink milk on a regular basis? Did your mom force you to drink milk every morning? Cod liver oil? 🙂
