Feature: Real California Milk + Milky Sopas Recipe

Wednesday, April 25, 2018

     When was the last time you enjoyed drinking a glass of milk? Last night, early this morning, or you can't totally remember at all? Even if you're not a milk drinker, I presume that you get your dose of dairy from other products like cheese, yoghurt, and everybody's favorite- ice cream. Yum!!!

     Did you know that dairy is an important part of a healthy diet? Yes, go and get your child's science book and turn to the page of food groups. You'll see that dairy products are on the third layer and an individual must consume at least 3 servings a day because dairy is your great source of protein plus essential nutrients. Dairy is loaded with nutrients and has a delicious taste that the whole family will surely love. Sharing below some of the nutritious benefits of dairy and my milky sopas recipe after the jump!

Nutritious Benefits of Dairy

1. All dairy milk (skimmed, low-fat, flavored, or organic) contains 9 essential nutrients that's why I make sure that my son always drinks milk day and night. 

2. One 8-ounce glass of milk provides natural, high-quality protein with all the essential amino acids that help build strong bones, hair, muscles and teeth. Your energy will last longer if you've taken your protein for breakfast. It's better to drink milk during breakfast and before bedtime. 

3. Milk is a rich source of calcium for healthy bones and teeth. Studies show that calcium supports healthy heart and nerve health. It will be healthier and much better if you can use milk as a substitute in soups, salad dressings, and other sauces 

4. Potassium is an important factor which can help with kidney and heart disorders and helps enhance muscle strength and metabolism. You may opt for yoghurt as a regular or pre-workout and post workout snack.

5. Milk contains Vitamin D which is essential to help prevent Osteoporosis. It helps your body absorb calcium food to build stronger bones. Add milk to your coffee and cereal every day!

6. The vitamin B12 in your glass of milk can help build red blood cells and maintains the central nervous system; riboflavin will help convert your food into energy; phosphorous will help maintain your energy levels; and there’s niacin, which supports proper brain function and improves cholesterol levels.

7. Vitamin A is responsible for boosting the immune system and makes the skin glowing too. You can also try using milk as a face mask. Just google the steps and have a baby smooth skin.

     Whoa! That's a lot of health benefits from dairy products that are easy to eat and affordable too. But being affordable should not make the quality suffer. I just discovered that I need to be meticulous in buying dairy products and be sure that I'm getting the real deal. Many big supermarkets and groceries now carry products with the Real California Milk seal.

     TIP: Always Look For The Seal when buying so you're getting dairy products made exclusively from nutrient-rich, high quality 100% California milk. The Golden State is America’s leading milk producer with 1,300 dairy farms, 99% of which are family owned. These California dairy farm families take precious care of their cows and their products. The milk, cheese, butter, yogurt and ice cream produced from the milk from their farms have now found their way to the Philippines.

     My son stays at home most of the time now that summer vacation has started. There were times that he woke up later than the usual. He missed a couple of breakfast these past few weeks that's why I decided to make a meal that can serve as his breakfast and lunch at the same time.

     Together with my husband, who cooks most of the time, we decided to make a simple recipe that is filling and packed with nutrients- Milky Sopas (Creamy Filipino Macaroni Soup). This is easy to make and the milk that we used is the one that makes it tasty. This can be served for merienda too. A hearty and healthy treat not just for the kids but for the whole family.

  1. Thanks for the reminder po. I almost forgot and need this esp.for my kids..And may free recipe pa😘

    1. Hi Lovell,

      Thank you so much! Hope your kids will always drink milk and look for the seal ng Real California Milk ha :)

  2. Thanks for sharing the Sopas recipe.. Gagawin ko po yan. Mahilig kasi ang bebe Zophie ko sa sopas. Personally, di ko kaya uminom ng gatas, amoy pa lang nasusuka na ako.weird nga daw sabi ng parents ko kasi nung bata pa ako, grabe daw ako mag milk tas nung tumanda na ako ayaw ko na. Kaya ang ginagawa ko na lang, naghahanap ako ng ibang alternative para maiprovide ko pa rin sa body yung calcium requirement na need ko.

    1. Hi Arselyn,

      You're welcome! Hope mas lumakas pa uminom ng milk si bebe Zophie. Important talaga yung Calcium hanggang paglaki. Ganun ba? Siguro may na-trigger sa senses mo bakit ka nasusuka sa amoy? But I do hope you try this brand kasi masarap yung milk and ako pa naman sensitive ang nose ko, may milk din na hindi ko gusto amoy. This one is refreshing yung amoy.

    2. Hello po! Hindi ko din po alam, kaya nung preggy ako hirap na hirap ako, kasi hindi ko talaga mainom ng maayos yung gatas. 😂😂

    3. Aww, yun lang. Sana masanay ka na din ulit. Or dahil iba-iba din kasi panlasa pag buntis diba?

    4. Siguro po.. Pero itry ko po yan, baka po magustuhan na ng systema ko

    5. Sana, hoping for positive results :)
