Hey dairy queens, raise your hand if you love refreshing milk, fluffy pancakes, whipped cream and creamy chocolate pudding. This week, quench your morning thirst with a glass of Fat-Free milk. Brunch is one of our favorite meals and read on as we take you to dairy heaven with some quick and easy brunch recipes.
There are many varieties of real milk in the dairy aisle. There’s something for everyone to choose from including whole milk, fat-free, low-fat, grass-fed, chocolate and lactose-free just to name a few. We picked up Fat-Free Milk from Fairway. You can use it in a recipe or drink it by the glass and create your own Milk Moment. Dairy milk is wholesome, simple, minimally processed and has three ingredients: milk, vitamin A and vitamin D.
Nothing stacks up to homemade pancakes topped with fresh fruit, maple syrup and whipped cream for brunch. We use Fat-Free Milk to whip up our pancakes from scratch. Pancakes with a stand mixer are an easy way to cook with kids. Start by pouring one cup of Fat-Free Milk into a measuring cup.
Next combine the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder and salt together and the wet ingredients (milk, egg, melted butter) and then mix them together. Use the paddle attachment of the stand mixer to combine dry and wet ingredients. You can also use a hand mixer or whisk.
Use a ladle to pour three-tablespoons of batter on a warm non-stick pan.
Serve the homemade pancakes with raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, whipped cream and maple syrup.
Pair the pancakes with a glass of Fat-Free Milk. Every 8-ounce glass of Fat-Free milk has 8 grams of protein. You’ll flipping love this meal for your next brunch at home.
