Need a new milk alternative? Worried about soy, totally over trendy Almond milk, and Coconut milk is just weird? The hottest new trend in dairy free is pea milk. Pea milk has nutritional and environmental benefits, such as 8 grams per 8 oz serving (same as cow milk), contains awesome amounts of DHA omega-3 fatty acids, iron and vitamin D, it is dairy-soy-nut-gluten free, it has half the sugar, 1/6 the amount saturated fat, and 20% fewer calories than dairy milk.
According to Ripple, the maker of pea milk, “Unlike almonds, which require lots of water; or cattle, which contribute to deforestation and greenhouse gas emissions; peas have a small environmental footprint. Yellow peas grow in areas that receive lots of rain, so they need little or no irrigation.”
Currently, the only place to get pea milk around here are Target stores. I love Target, so this is just another perfect excuse to go there, so it’s a win-win.
