Our home is filled with chocolate milk lovers. Both of my children are addicted and I truly believe it’s due to me loving it so much when I was pregnant with both. Your still getting all the nutrients you need just with a little yummy chocolate flavor. Zoe runs around here screaming….”I want chocolate milk!” It’s too cute. I was excited to learn about Horizon Organic Lowfat Chocolate Milk Plus DHA Omega-3. I’m on my health food kick so this was the perfect item to test and try.
Here is a little information about Horizon:
“At Horizon™ we are committed to supporting the health of families and our planet with delicious, innovative, responsibly produced organic and natural dairy foods.
Founded in 1991, Horizon is a pioneer in the organic industry, and we were the first company to supply organic milk nationally. We are proud to work with more than 500 organic family farms across the country. We are now expanding into natural foods as we continue our dedication to providing healthy options for families.
Why do we do what we do? Because we believe everyone should be able to buy high-quality, great-tasting products that are produced with integrity.”
I was sent a case of Horizon Organic Lowfat Chocolate Milk Plus DHA Omega-3 to review. Our family really loves this milk. First off it provides DHA Omega-3 which is an important nutrient that helps support heart, brain and eye health. Second, it’s organic and carries the USDA Organic Seal. I’m purchasing more and more products that are organic for my family. This was produced without antibiotics, pesticides or cloning, from cows not given added growth hormones. Third, it tastes great. It’s a bit thicker than what we would normally use and creamy. It’s the perfect blend of chocolate. Rich, creamy and smooth. Just the way we like it. There isn’t a fake sugar taste either just a yummy all natural taste which is why my family will now choose Horizon Organic Lowfat Chocolate Milk Plus DHA Omega-3. Zoe runs around asking for “cow chocolate milk” now because of the cow on the carton. She loves it. Hubby even drinks a glass every night which is crazy because he has only one love in chocolate milk but he says he loves the creamy, thick texture of this and it tastes great and goes down smooth! The shelf life is also longer than normal milk but that is never a problem in our home. Milk isn’t on the shelf for more than 2 days here.
I do run most days of the week and try to do some sort of work out 3 times a week. Researches are saying that chocolate milk may be better than sports drinks after a workout so I’ve incorporated this after long jogs or walks. After we work out we exhaust our muscles and have to restore them. Chocolate milk is full of protein and carbs which we need after a workout. This milk has 11grams of protein per serving, 520 mg of potassium and yes the carb content is high at 30grams but after working out we need our carbs. And milk has Vitamin A, D and Calcium which help in strengthening our bones and building muscles. Obviously, milk has amazing benefits and we should be drinking it.
