Five Healthy Recipes to Include Milk in Your Daily Routine
Are you one of those people who just doesn’t like the taste of milk? Even worse, are your kids showing you a hard time when it comes to drinking it? Milk needs to be incorporated into your daily diet seeing it's full of nutrients, so why not do that in a delicious way instead of the old fashioned glass of milk before bed?
Interested? We’ve got a new product to introduce to you along with some recipes that will change your whole lifestyle. Mandisha is a new brand of 100% fresh milk; a healthy product with a delicious taste. Mandisha's fresh milk comes from a rare breed of Holland's finest cows, called Holstein. These cows were specifically brought to Egypt, and they're being raised in a farm in Egypt’s Western Desert called Mandisha, where they feed on the farm's natural grass. So where did the name Mandisha come from? It's the name of the village that hosts this farm; it has been called Mandisha after a Romanian princess.
Besides being tasty and loaded with natural nutrients, Mandisha’s packaging is made of carton that prevents sun rays from reaching the milk, which helps in keeping it fresh. Another proof that Mandisha is 100% free of preservatives, is the expiry date of this milk, which is just one day after you open it.
Now let’s discover five recipes that will help you include milk in your daily routine, and get the full benefit of it.
