Trying Out Milks

Well, along with celiac disease, it appears as though the illustrator is also suffering from some lactose intolerance. This is not uncommon. So, we have been playing around with milk. It feels like my pantry and refrigerator have expanded with more and more products to accommodate everyone's needs! In order to keep our budget in check, we are working with what we both like. So far, the favorite is Almond Milk. The illustrator had his first bowl of non Cheerio Cheerios, also known as WholeO's by Nature's Path. He ate it with almond milk and a banana. I was so impressed...he liked it! The cereal tastes a lot like a plain rice cereal, but the addition of the almond milk really adds another level and banana is a great addition too! We both like the slightly sweet flavor and the viscosity is nice without being too thin or too thick. Almond Breeze is the brand that I like the most (at this point) and is my go to brand for almond milk.
A friend of mine went to a co-op and brought back a couple of goodies for me. One of them was this Living Harvest Hemp Milk (they have since changed their packaging). I love this stuff! It is so rich a smooth. I baked some cornbread muffins with the hemp milk. Wow, what a nice compliment to the corn flavor! So, I decided to do something that I have never done before, but I have seen my father-in-law do it many times my cornbread with milk on it (well, hemp milk). This was so good! I highly recommend the cornbread with milk combo...pure comfort food!
This Pacific Natural Foods Vanilla Oat Milk is one of the other treasures my friend brought back from the co-0p. This one is definitely a sweet milk! You know I love oatmeal, so really, there was no going wrong with this one. I decided to have another little oatmeal adventure and use the vanilla oat milk in some carrot cake oatmeal! So good! If you have never tried carrots in your are missing out! I would like to play with this idea more because it will be a great fall/winter breakfast, lunch, snack, dinner or dessert. I think you get the idea that I can eat oatmeal anytime!
