BLENDER BABES RECIPE TESTER NOTES
“The first time I made this, I used vanilla frozen yogurt. The next day, I was craving another, but I was out of yogurt, so I subbed a frozen banana…which I loved even better than the one with yogurt!” and “I think this recipe was easy, and ended in a great final result. I’ll definitely be making this again.”
HEALTH BENEFITS NON-DAIRY MILK
These days, people aren’t limited to drinking just cow’s milk. There are many reasons for moving away from traditional dairy. More and more studies are suggesting that perhaps cow’s milk isn’t the healthiest option. Some are concerned about America’s industrial production of dairy, including pasteurization, others are worried about added hormones and the ethical treatment of dairy cows. Still others believe that cow’s milk, no matter how ethically produced, has adverse health effects on children and adults.
