fairlife milk is lactose free, with more protein (13 grams to be exact) & half the sugar typically found in regular milk. And of course when you hear this, the first thought that comes to mind is “yes, but what does it taste like?!” I will be 100% honest here and tell you that I was a skeptic. I have always been weird with dairy products & was a little weary that this could possibly even taste like milk. But you know what? It was absolutely perfect. It tastes just like milk, but better. fairlife milk is filtered into five components (water, butterfat, protein, vitamins & minerals, lactose) and then recombined in different proportions. So there is no need to add proteins, calcium powders or artificial sweeteners, it’s all about proportions.
Brandon’s dad (or papa as we call him around here) who grew up on a dairy farm in Iowa, was here visiting us the week that we first stocked our fridge with fairlife milk & he loved learning about their story & mission behind their brand. fairlife grows their own crops to feed their cows & they never use growth hormones, and they pride themselves on giving their cows a happy & healthy life. If you’ve ever fed an apple to a happy cow, you know how amazing this is!
So the next time you are in the grocery store overwhelmed with the number of milk choices, you can feel confident in knowing what an amazing company you are supporting & even better tasting milk you can get with fairlife.
