Recently I received a coupon from Kroger stores for a free bottle of Bolthouse Frams Plant Protein Milk. It's a non-dairy milk like drink made from peas! I know it doesn't sound appetizing, but seriously it's pretty good! I tried the unsweetened, but they have vanilla, chocolate, and original varieties. This "milk" has 50% more calcium than dairy milk, and 10 grams of protein per serving versus just 1 gram in almond milk. Plus, it's vegan, non-GMO, and doesn't contain dairy, lactose, buts, soy, or gluten!
First of all I tired it alone - in a glass and drank it just like I would a glass of milk. While it isn't exactly like milk, it decent. Then I tried it as a creamer in my coffee. It worked great, and it was a good feeling to know I was getting so much protein and calcium in my morning coffee. Next I asked my husband to try it in his daily smoothie. He has a smoothie every day with yogurt, bananas, and strawberries. He gave me two thumbs up and said it gave his smoothie a milk shake like texture.
From there I've used it as milk substitute in my baking and cooking. I used it in mashed potatoes, meatloaf, and cookies. Everything has turned out perfectly and no one knows they're getting extra protein and calcium. I highly recommend this wonderful product!
