Recently one of my besties slipped and fell her in her shower. She broke her back, had to have surgery to stabilize her fracture and was hospitalized for over a week. It was a totally freak accident. Thankfully, she is on the mend (she is back to being her cranky lovable self) and has full function of her limbs. Big relief. Love that girl! I’m not sure what I would do without our morning chats and witty banter.
Nothing short of rubber shower shoes could have prevented her accident but, it does have me rethinking my calcium intake. I have always been conscience of eating dairy because I fear osteoporosis but, I probably don’t get enough calcium. I don’t drink milk but, I probably should. I stared exploring ways that I can eat and drink more milk. Mainly, how I can make drinking milk tolerable without negating the healthiness with sugar.
A few trial runs and I have a delicious milk for non-milk drinker without a ton of added sugar. I used a high quality extract so a little goes a long way. I actually think you could substitute almond extract for the vanilla extract to make almond flavored milk. Other flavors to explore, mint, hazelnut, apricot?Print
