For the Love of Food – Mystery Milk

What can you make with this delicious alternative milk?

by Jen Davis – April 15, 2016

Welcome to another edition of For the Love of Food, featuring Registered Dietitian, Jen Davis RD, LDN. Today’s topic: a special alternative milk! (Watch the video above to find out what it is!)

When most people think of milk, they think of calcium, protein, cows, the liquid you pour on your cereal for breakfast…but there’s more milk choices than just what we can get from our dairy friends. Today’s featured milk alternative comes with some special benefits as well!

If you’d like to compare a milk alternative’s nutrition information with that of diary milk, there’s a great resource available: the food-a-pedia on ChooseMyPlate.gov. Simply look up the foods you want and this website allows you to compare them, side by side.

There are a number of reasons for choosing to drink alternative milk. It’s great for those who are lactose intolerant, vegan or if you simply enjoy trying new foods! Try out this recipe featured in today’s video: Mystery Milk Strawberry Smoothie!

Ingredients:
– 1 Cup Frozen Banana Chunks
– 1 Cup Frozen Strawberries
– 2 Tbsp Apple Juice Concentrate
– 1-1/2 Cups Non-Dairy Milk

Place all ingredients in a blender and process on high speed until smooth, 2 to 3 minutes, stopping blender occasionally to move unblended fruit to the center with a spatula. Serve immediately.
