Today I’ve partnered with Midwest Dairy to bring you this Dairy inspired recipe and chat about June being National Dairy month!
As you might have read in my previous post, Dairy foods are not only sustainable, but they are undeniably delicious and nutritious!
Did you know…
milk provides 13 essential nutrients in every serving? This includes protein, zinc, selenium, vitamin A and vitamin D, which contribute to healthy immune function. And milk provides 3 out of 4 nutrients that the Dietary Guidelines for Americans has identified as nutrients of concern. These nutrients include calcium, Vitamin D and potassium which can help keep blood pressure in check.
What I love most about dairy is the variety of dairy foods and how they can be incorporated into different dishes. Culinary school taught me to fall in love with whole milk again and the quality that it can bring to different sauces. In addition to milk, you can enjoy dairy foods like cheese, yogurt, sour cream and even ice cream.
For National Dairy Month, I’ll be celebrating with this recipe —> Mini Strawberry Cream Pies. This particular recipe incorporates three different dairy foods including butter, milk and cream cheese. It’s delicious and individually portioned which makes it a great dessert option to serve throughout the summer.
