I depise drinking milk. It's always been an issue for me, because -- as a nursing mom to 5 babies over the years -- it's something that my doctor has recommended I get more of. You can only eat so much cheese! I only wish there was something like Milksplash around with my pregnancies!
This little bottle of flavoring is a creative way for kids -- and moms -- to flavor their milk in yummy ways like banana, cookies and cream, orange sherbet, and more. Just one little squirt (anything more is too much) will do it. We got the following flavors at my house -- it was our second time trying Milksplash -- and they were gone within 2 weeks (our family of 8 drinks THAT much milk)!
- Jammin' Banana
- Sir Strawberry Swirl
- Orangesicle Cream
- Cocoa Loco
- Cookies N' Creme
We had already tried the Cookies N' Creme and Orangesicle Dream. The only one that didn't go over well with everyone in the house was the Jammin' Banana. (And this was just because my husband hates anything banana-flavored. The rest of the fam loved it!)
Is there a downside to this product that offers unique flavor profiles for the common glass of milk, has no added calories, and is shelf stable? If there is one, it can only be that your kids will drink milk. A lot more milk. And the price of milk may be a bit shocking at first.
But when you compare that same glass of milk with the long-term cost of drinking sugary sodas or other sweetened-with-sugar drinks with no nutritional value whatsoever, I think it's pretty clear that paying $4 or more for a gallon of milk and $3.48 for a bottle of Milksplash is a great investment in giving my kids an easy and delicious way to get essential vitamins and nutrients! (And I trust my kids to use it without making spills or messes at the table.)
Milksplash is also delicious the following ways:
- In cereal milk, when you opt for a healthy variety and don't want the kids to add sugar
- In smoothies and shakes
- In homemade ice creams and ice milks
You can find all the mess-free flavors of Milksplash at your local Walmart for $3.48. Or, order it online* and get free shipping on qualifying orders of $50 or more!
