I recently found out our son, Cash, is lactose intolerant so I was looking for new options to try.
Getting him to take regular milk always ends in a disaster, so I started looking for other alternatives to milk for him. Unfortunately, some of the alternatives are expensive.
So, I was thrilled when I heard that Trader Joe’s is now selling oat milk. I’m definitely going to be giving the Trader Joe’s oat milk a try because it contains the ingredients that are healthy for him.
However, the oat milk comes in two varieties. A refrigerated and a shelf-stable dairy-free Oat Beverage. In the shelf-stable beverage, one serving has 110 calories and is made up of just two ingredients: water and hydrolyzed oats, which is pretty exciting.
While the refrigerated alternative milk, one serving is equivalent to 90 calories, although vitamins and sugars have been added.
Now, if you’re lactose intolerant you can still have your milk and cookies! I mean who doesn’t love Trader Joe’s?
