Editor’s Note: Thank you Horizon® Organic for sponsoring this post.
Growing up, I spent every hot summer with my family in India. I loved learning to cook from my aunts, playing with my cousins, and learning about my heritage. The only downside was that it was just so HOT!
One of the drinks my grandma used to make me in the summer was milk with rose syrup. The rose has a cooling effect and it would help me be a less antsy kid in the summer!
I’m loving recreating my grandma’s recipe in this Summer Rose Moon Milk – it takes me back to my childhood. It’s a cool and refreshing drink perfect for the hot summer days we have ahead! Tasty for both kids and adults!
You may remember that last year, I stopped eating meat and am trying to be more conscious about the eggs and dairy that I *do* eat. That’s why I chose to make this recipe with Horizon® Organic Grassfed Milk from Sprouts Farmers Market.
Horizon® Organic Grassfed Milk comes from cows that spend as much time as possible in pastures, with access to shade, shelter, fresh air, and clean water. I love how the company is dedicated to the welfare of their animals and is a steward for more humane practices in the dairy industry. If you’re interested, you can read more about their standards of care here.
You can find Horizon Grassfed Milk at your local Sprouts Farmers Market. I love how Sprouts makes it easy and more affordable to have a more conscious lifestyle.
