HEALTH BENEFITS OF DAIRY-FREE MILK

With so many great (and tasty) milk alternatives on the market, people aren’t limited to drinking just cow’s milk anymore. There are many reasons for avoiding traditional dairy: a “primal” or Paleo lifestyle, vegan and some vegetarian diets and lactose intolerance.

Even people without dietary restrictions are moving towards using milk substitutes, especially as more and more studies are suggesting the possibility that cow’s milk isn’t the healthiest choice.

Some are concerned about America’s industrial production of dairy, especially pasteurization, while others are worried about added hormones and the ethical treatment of dairy cows.

Free Juice Detox

And there’s always the argument that no matter how ethically produced, cow’s milk may have adverse health effects on children and adults.

Whatever your reasons, Blender Babes has recipes for milk drinkers and milk substitute drinkers alike! Enjoy!
