Sorry for the wee picture of my goat milk, but that’s all I could find on the internet! I’ve been drinking this brand of goat milk, Meyenberg, for the past couple of weeks and I love it. I’ve always been a big goat cheese fan, but my interest and taste developed more for them when I discovered I was a lactose intolerant. Goat milk doesn’t make my throat feel like it’s closing up, and I digest it pretty well.
I’ve been adding a few more dairy products back into my diet because I feel like I’m missing something. I’ve just felt off and I never really feel satisfied after my meals. Since adding a little yogurt, cottage cheese and goat milk into my diet, I have felt much better. I haven’t wanted to kill someone when I get home from work because I’m so hungry. I’ve been really digging those flavored Chobani yogurts that come in the six ounce containers. My favorite flavors so far are apple and cinnamon and pineapple. I’ve got a lot of flavors to work through though!
I’ve been making home made mochas in the morning with goat milk. I make a tiny bit of espresso, mix goat milk and hot chocolate mix together and the add espresso to that. It’s quite a lovely combination. I’ve been missing that creamy element in my coffee and tea in the morning, something almond milk can’t quite provide. I’ll still be sticking to almond milk when I eat cereal though.
I don’t remember exactly what cow’s milk tastes like because I haven’t had it in so long, but from what I can remember, goat’s milk is slightly sweeter that cow. It tastes very rich and decadent to me, but that’s probably because I usually drink almond milk. Almond milk has basically no fat in it in comparison to animal milk. Goat milk is a little pricey, but I think it’s worth the investment because it’s making me feel more satisfied. Happy Friday all!
