We are BIG milk drinkers in my family. We usually drink it with every meal and I use it almost daily when I cook and bake for my family.

 

There is nothing like the smooth, creamy taste of milk to complement a hearty dinner or decadent dessert.

 

I love that milk provides so much nutrition and is a good source of protein for my kids.

 

With all of the beverage choices that are out there now, it’s important to know what you’re choosing for you and your family to get the most bang for your buck.

I feel good about serving milk to my family because of all the nutrition packed into each 8 ounce serving. It contains nine essential nutrients including:

 

  • B vitamins which help your body convert food into energy
  • High-quality protein to help build lean muscle
  • Vitamin A to help build a healthy immune system
  • Potassium which helps your body regulate and balance fluids
  • Bone-building nutrients like calcium, Vitamin D and phosphorus

Why I Love Milk

 

I also love that milk contains no added sugar. There is sugar in milk, but that sugar is naturally-occurring lactose.

 

Many non-dairy milk alternatives, like almond milk, have added sugar to the surprise of many consumers.

 

Make sure you are reading the labels of the products you plan to purchase. If the ingredients list contains the words cane sugar or cane juice, that is a good indication that sugar has been added.

 

Milk does not have either of those. I’d call that a win.

Let’s not forget about taste! Milk just tastes good. It is great not only to drink, but to cook with as well. Which brings me to the next part of this post.

 

How to take that delicious, creamy milk and turn it into a Creamy Half Baked Oatmeal breakfast that will be loved, and devoured, by the whole family!

It is amazing because adding milk to the oats instead of water or a non-dairy milk alternative, adds so much creaminess, flavor and nutrition.

  • 2 Cups Milk
  • 1 Cup Quick Oats
  • 2 Tablespoons Sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla
  • 2 Teaspoons Sparkling Sugar
