Each year, our county princesses provide family favorite dairy recipes which are compiled in our annual “Royal Recipes” booklet. Each recipe includes at least two dairy food ingredients.
As dairy promoters, we value preparing and enjoying healthy foods as well as taking part in the practices of good nutrition, physical activity and an overall healthy lifestyle. We know that dairy foods are an important component to reach those goals.
Be sure to reach for products with milk, cheese and yogurt and other real dairy foods in the grocery store. Remember, Your Milk Comes From a Good Place! We hope you and your family enjoy these recipes as much as we do!
Each month we will be featuring recipes from each of our dairy princesses. Be sure to check back! Full recipe list can be viewed here.
