I’m Back to Milk With My Cookies!! #a2 #IC #ad

This post was sponsored by a2 Milk® as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.

I LOVE cookies!!  I especially love a nice robust cookie that will hold up to dipping in a glass of milk.  The only problem is that whenever I drink milk, I tend to have tummy troubles soon afterward.  In fact, an independent study showed 1 in 4 Americans have discomfort after drinking milk; yet only 5-7% of the population has been clinically diagnosed with a lactose intolerance medical condition.

I was thrilled to find out about a2 Milk®. a2 Milk® may not disturb the tummies of those with dairy sensitivities.  But it’s real cow’s milk.

The A1 protein is the culprit behind many people’s discomfort after consuming dairy, and is currently in all conventional & organic milks on the U.S. market. a2 Milk® only comes from specially selected a2 cows, whose milk is naturally free of the A1 protein.

And because a2 Milk® is real milk, it’s a real replacement versus overly processed milks or nut-, bean- or rice-based beverages.

As for me, I had pretty much cut out milk altogether (I know, I know, but I have been taking a calcium supplement).

I whipped up a batch of Oatmeal Cranberry Butterscotch Cookies yesterday (recipe at the end of this post).  They smelled so good coming out of the oven!!  I couldn’t wait to try them with a glass of a2 Milk®!!

I was very patient and waited until the cookies had cooled completely so they would be strong enough to handle a good dipping.   Then I poured myself a glass of a2 Milk® and took the plunge 😉

The a2 Milk® tasted just like regular milk.  And I never had any tummy troubles, even hours afterward!!

Does milk give you tummy troubles (Post-Dairy Digestive Disorder)?  Check to see if a2 Milk® is available near you.  The a2 Milk® Companyhas partnered with U.S. family dairy farmers in upstate New York and the Midwest to expand the a2 herd.
