Celebrating a Month of Real CA Dairy

In honor of June is Dairy Month, the California Milk Advisory Board has put together a list of 30 dairy-licious tips. I really enjoyed the tips that are given here, to include Real CA dairy products into each day of the month...

For example...
#6 - Dip your favorite berries in sour cream, then in brown or powdered sugar
Sour cream, huh? I'm going to have to give that one a try.

#9 - Top your cottage cheese with applesauce, cinnamon, walnuts and raisins for an extra treat
I think I could get the boys to eat cottage cheese if I mixed in some of Grammy's applesauce! Sounds yummy!

#17 - Butter takes away the "fish smell" from your hands! Rub 1 tsp on your hands after handling fish, and then wash with soap and water
Who knew?

#29 - 1% chocolate milk is one of the best post-workout recovery drinks around
This one is definately my favorite! Next time, skip the gatorade and go for the chocolate milk instead!

In addition to this list, the site features Recipes (Including my Mom's mini-cheesecake recipe!), ad campaigns, and so much more! Meet the families and the people behind 99% of California dairy farms, each of their stories are unique and heartwarming. 

You can even select your favorite wine, beer or chocolate and immediately learn the perfect cheese to pair with the Cheese Pairing feature! The feature also works in reverse when you select your favorite cheese, the results will list food and beverages to pair. This should make entertaining a cinch! Take a minute to visit Real California Milk and share your favorite feature with us!
Find Real California Milk on Facebook, too!
