10 Magnificent Milk Recipes & the Benefits of a2 Milk® {$100 Giveaway!}

Do you struggle drinking real milk?  This post may actually change your life!  

I’m diving into a2 Milk® benefits and some of the most magnificent recipes using milk on the web!

Hi everyone!

Has anyone heard of a2 Milk® yet?  I recently learned about it and how it could be easier for some of you with milk intolerance to digest. Both my mom and one of my closest friends had or still have dairy sensitivities so I’ve been aware of the problem for most of my life.  I always found ways to cook without dairy to help them, but I saw how my mom longed to try anything with milk in it. I’m sure many of you with similar dairy sensitivity feel the same way.

a2 Milk® Benefits

So let’s talk about milk and a2 Milk® benefits, shall we? Bear with me while we get through a little bit of history and science!

a2 Milk Benefits and 10 Magnificent Recipes Using Milk / Running in a Skirt

Here’s how it works!

Hundreds of years ago all milk was naturally rich in the A2 protein type. Over time, other proteins began to appear in the milk of European herds, such as the A1 protein type.  That mixture of A1 and A2 proteins eventually made it’s way into herds around the world, including the US.  Most milk we drink these days has both A1 and A2 proteins in it.

As more people develop dairy sensitivities, researchers began to look at the cause.  Studies reveal that milk with just A2 proteins is easier for more people to digest and the A1 protein alone causes problems for many people.

The a2 Milk Company figured out a way to naturally select cows that will just produce milk with the a2 protein.  a2 Milk® is not modified or genetically altered in any way.

It’s REAL milk that just comes from cows that only make a2 proteins.  a2 milk® is naturally free of all A1 proteins, therefore making it drinkable for many people who could not drink milk before!

Cool huh?

So basically when I learned about this product, it seemed too good not to share with you guys.  Dairy sensitivity stinks and a2 Milk® from The a2 Milk Company could be the answer for some of you.

I seriously believe this milk could change some people’s lives!

a2 Milk Benefits and 10 Magnificent Recipes Using Milk / Running in a Skirt

I don’t have dairy sensitivity, but I did feel great when I tested out a2 Milk®.

It tastes super fresh and I love the fact that their milk is guaranteed to be free of hormones and antibiotics.  They also work with sustainable family farmers who are certified for the humane treatment of animals, so I love that the milk comes from “happy” cows.  All of these are wonderful reasons for anyone to enjoy this milk.

If you have a true milk protein allergy or clinically diagnosed lactose intolerance, PLEASE do not test this milk out on yourself.  Consult with your doctor about any changes to your diet.

Here’s a coupon to try some yourself!  There is a store locator on the a2 Milk Company site.

Also follow them on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest for the latest news on a2 Milk®.

Milk is in so many recipes!  From baked goods, breakfast, smoothies, to even healthy dinners… it is a key ingredient in the kitchen.  In honor of some of you being able to try milk again, I thought I’d share some yummy recipes using milk so you could get some a2 Milk® inspiration!

    I will suggest a2 Milk to a friend who can not digest Milk properly (lactose intolerant). As for me I have to stay away from milk for a different reason–it makes my blood sugar sky rocket! Too much milk sugar for this diabetic.

    Thanks for the a2 milk info (and coupon)! My mom is a lacto-ovo vegetarian. Although most of her dairy consists of cheese and eggs, I will see if I can persuade her to try a2 (as apposed to her soy milk) to see if it will help with her osteoporosis. I, myself, am a pesco-vegetarian and drink either Mom’s soy or the hubby’s organic 2%. Trying a2 is going to be a treat!! 🙂

    I went through a period of lactose sensitivity after my diagnosis and drank Lactaid. To be honest, though, I’m not a huge cow’s milk person. I don’t know why. But they is might be the ticket for some really great backing or protein smoothies! Or even to make ice cream!
