I recently got The Dairy Good Cookbook: Everyday Comfort Food from America’s Dairy Farm Families and I am loving all the delicious dairy recipes. Every time I open the cookbook I get hungry. I cannot decide what to make first. It has over 100 recipes that showcase the unique tastes and versatility of dairy – from cheese and yogurt to milk and butter. The book celebrates the nation’s more than 47,000 dairy farm families and their contributions to our American life. I loved the farmer stories in the cookbook. I felt more connected to the dairy farmers by reading their stories. One family made me think of my own, as we love any excuse to get outside and enjoy our time together. This first recipe we tried was the Orange Cream Chiller. This was perfect to make for the kids and me as an afternoon snack. Yummy and nutritious snacks are great for the kids and me. I am anxious to get the book back out and try more recipes. I love getting in the kitchen with my kids and trying new yummy recipes.
Orange Cream Chiller
Ingredients/what we used: 3 ounces frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed 1 cup milk 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt 1 small banana, 3 frozen strawberries 1 teaspoon honey 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract How to make/ what we did: We combined the orange juice concentrate, milk, yogurt, frozen fruit, honey, and vanilla in a blender. Then blended on high until smooth. Last we poured into cups. Serve immediately. We added fun paper straws to our drinks and enjoyed our afternoon snack. My 4 and 6 year old helped me make our orange cream chillers. They love getting in the kitchen with me and making treats, snacks, dinner… I loved getting in the kitchen with my mom growing up. I learned so much from her and how to cook. For me as mom now I love that my kids can do the same with me. We are making yummy food and lasting memories. Fun fact: June is National Dairy Month. The Dairy Good Cookbook reconnects us with dairy farmers by bringing us recipes with wholesome dairy ingredients to share with our family and friends. The dairy farmer works hard to bring us great tasting milk, cheese, and yogurt. I love how the book is broken down as though you had spent a day on the farm: sunrise breakfast, midday lunch, after-chore snacks, sundown supper, and after-dinner dessert. There is also a section for family gatherings and special occasions. The book includes great photos of farmers and their lives. The food photos will leave you wanting to try it all. I look forward to making more of these recipes for my family.
