a2 Milk®... pure farm fresh milk

“This post was sponsored by a2 Milk® as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.”

Milk, it is an essential part of the Henning household. We drink milk (sometimes even straight out of the carton and we cook with milk for example French toast, cheese sauce for mac and cheese. We go through a lot of milk that is for sure.

I was recently selected participate in the a2 Milk® Ambassadorship program and I have been excited to find out the difference in a2 Milk® versus normal milk. I want to tell you my family's first impression on a2 milk before I move on. My husband opened the carton, poured himself a glass, drank it and said enthusiastically, "this is good!" So upon initial impression, there is no difference in the taste between a2 Milk® and regular milk. The difference between the two milks are a2 Milk® is the first and only milk naturally free from the A1 beta-casein protein. The A1 beta-casein protein is what causes the lactose intolerance issues or discomfort after drinking regular milk. By drinking a2 Milk®, which is pure farm fresh milk by the way, people with the occasional discomfort or lactose-intolerance can drink this milk without any symptoms. The a2 Milk® is naturally produced from cows in the Midwest and upstate New York and produced the way mother nature intended. Therefore you can drink or cook with a2 Milk® as you would with regular milk without the discomfort or pain. Why should you drink a2 Milk® if you have discomfort or lactose problems? It is because a2 Milk® has about 6 times the amount of calcium as soy beverages, 8 times the amount of protein as almond beverages and 6 times the amount of potassium in rice beverages, these three being the most common dairy-free milk replacements. The a2 Milk® allows you or family members with dairy discomfort to not have to cut out dairy at all in your diet. Milk in your cereal can be actual milk, cheese sauce for mac and cheese can be made with actual milk. Just to make sure, I made French toast for my family using a2 Milk® recently.

French Toast Recipe
Ingredients - 1 egg (maybe 2 depending on how many slices you want to cook), 1/4 cup milk, a dash of nutmeg and cinnamon. Crack the egg in a shallow bowl and whisk it. Add in the milk and stir to combine. Sprinkle nutmeg and cinnamon on top and stir again. If you like a little extra flavoring, you can add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. I like to add a tablespoon or so of powdered sugar as well.
Heat up your skillet. Soak a slice of bread in the egg mixture on one side then flip to the other side then cook that slice of French toast in the skillet until a golden brown. Turn the French toast to cook on the other side. When golden brown on both sides, remove from skillet. Serve French toast with maple syrup and enjoy!

I've seen A2 in the store and have thought about buying it for Emerson. I'll have to give it a try one of these days.
