Peas, please

When I saw an ad for dairy-free milk made from peas, I just had to try it. I mean, doesn’t that sound interesting?

Ripple Milk is high in protein and low in sugar. In addition to dairy-free, this plant-based milk is also vegan, gluten-free, and lactose-free. And the best part? Ripple is allergy friendly – free of the top 8 allergens, including nuts, which makes it a great alternative to almond or cashew milk for those with dairy AND nut allergies! All products are certified non-GMO.

I love that this company puts a focus on sustainability. Ripple is doing its part to help the planet one bottle at a time, following the principles of the Butterfly (or Ripple) Effect – how one small movement can produce a mountain of change.

Yellow peas are better for you and the earth. The“bottles are made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic that can be recycled by 99% of US households.” Check out their site for some pretty impressive environmental statistics.

But, it’s made from peas. Does it taste like peas?

No way! Two of the toughest food critics I know (my mom and grandma) gave this beverage two thumbs up. “It tastes like a milkshake.” And that it does.  Dairy-free never tasted so good!

Ripple Vanilla

This recipe is completely delicious and tastes just like a creamy vanilla shake. Each serving is packed with 8 grams of plant-based protein and it has less sugar than other flavored milk and more calcium than dairy milk. Add Ripple Vanilla to cereal, stir it into recipes, or drink alone. I prefer mine with a side of gluten-free cookies!

Visit ripplefoods.com for more information and check out their store locator to see where you can get your own bottles of this delicious drink!
