WHY DID I CHOOSE ORGANIC VALLEY MILK?

My family has always enjoyed milk whether we’re drinking a nice cold glass with our favorite cookies, eating a bowl of cereal, or using it to bake a cake.

For the longest time, when at the grocery, I’d grab a gallon of milk concerned only with whether I was selecting skim, low fat or whole milk. Like most people, I figured that all milk was the same.

It wasn’t until I learned that most of the major milk brands add things like artificial hormones, antibiotics, GMOs, artificial fillers and even pesticides to their milk, that I began looking for a better option and made the switch to Organic Valley.

With 13 essential nutrients, Organic Valley Milk contains no toxic pesticides, antibiotics, synthetic hormones, or GMOs, and no added artificial ingredients or fillers. In fact, their certified organic milk goes through 57 separate quality checks to ensure that you and your family are getting only the best, most delicious milk.

Best of all, Organic Valley is a farmer-owned cooperative not a cooporation. This means that nearly 1800 small organic family farms that are part of the cooperative also own the business. These farmers insist on raising food in a way that takes care of their families and yours; as well as their animals and the earth.

HOW TO MAKE WHITE HOT CHOCOLATE AHEAD OF TIME

To make this toasty treat ahead of time, follow the instructions accordingly, then let the white hot chocolate cool entirely.

Next, place it in an airtight container and place it in the firdge for up to two to three days. The white hot chocolate will become hard in the refrigerator so don’t worry once it does.

When ready to serve, you will want to warm it up slowly and carefully bring it to a low simmer until heated through without letting it boil. Then remove it from the heat quickly and serve.
