fairlife Milk ~ Great Taste, Less Sugar, 13g Protein per cup

Late last year, I made an important decision to manage the sugar that I eat in my life. I like sugar. No…I love sugar, but I know that I should only partake in moderation, so that is what I do. Enjoy our post: fairlife Milk ~ Great Taste, Less Sugar, 13g Protein per cup.

One of the interesting things that happens when you decide to cut out sugar is that an entire new world of hidden sugars has popped up that I knew absolutely nothing about. Hidden sugars. That's right. I found out that if I cut out a lot of the hidden sugars that I was consuming on a daily basis, I seriously could still indulge in my favorite treats without any of the guilt.

Hidden sugars are found in things like:

  • condiments (check out your ketchup label)
  • dressings and marinades (some have high amounts of sugar)
  • sauces (this was a tough one for me because I enjoy trying new sauces)
  • and really so many more things that most of us have no clue about (like pickles)

The key to really managing these things is making cuts wherever you can. For instance, I can now ask for something with half of the amount of sugar it calls for and still enjoy it tremendously. This is because I have been cutting back gradually over quite a while.

About fairlife ultra-filtered milk

I tend to drink milk, and I am a big fan of cheese as well. My milk choice is fairlife ultra-filtered milk, and has been ever since I first discovered it late last year. I was reading labels one day in the dairy section when I stumbled upon fairlife. The label instantly drew me in. Then it was the taste. I also started seeing friends talk about it online.

Did you know that fairlife has:

  • 13 grams of protein compared to ordinary milk’s 8 grams?
  • 50% less sugar than ordinary milk?

This suddenly became the only milk we buy for several reasons. I LOVE the taste and so do my kids. At any given time, if you look in our fridge, you will find chocolate, 2% and whole versions of fairlife ultra-filtered milk. We all love chocolate as a treat, and the fact that fairlife ultra-filtered milk has half the sugar means absolutely no guilt on my part when I have an ice-cold glass of chocolate milk. In fact, my husband and I work with a personal trainer. His favorite thing when he is craving something sweet is fairlife ultra-filtered chocolate milk, and he recommends all of his clients do the same, which is what made us buy chocolate milk in the first place.

fairlife Milk ~ Great Taste, Less Sugar, 13g Protein per cupFast forward to the end of August 2016. I am almost 80 pounds lighter, and my skin has never looked better. I have made so many great lifestyle changes, and I attribute that to my cutback in sugar. For me, it has never been about denying myself the things I love. My new lifestyle mantra is less about denial and more about a focus on not so much acceptance.

I love hot steel-cut oatmeal with a little maple syrup and milk. I added fairlife ultra-filtered chocolate milk to my peanut butter smoothie (recipe coming soon) and my son drank the second half when I left the room. It was absolutely amazing. I love morning cereal with fairlife. I routinely change between 2% and whole fairlife ultra-filtered milk depending on how much fat I have had that day.

fairlife offers so many delicious choices that it is tough not to buy every single flavor each time I shop, although we do this often. We make the kids smoothies each morning that they drink on the way to school. My husband is adamant that the kids get a great start to their day with a good breakfast. Smoothies are definitely a favorite with our family.

    I havent heard of this brand yet until this post. I am not sure if it is in our area or not. You all on the west or the east coast tend to get these things before we do! I like how it has less sugars but what I am impressed with is the higher protein. I have been trying to up my proteins and this would be an easy way.

  37. I will let my husband know about this! He’s always looking to up his protein.

  38. We love fairlife–especially the chocolate variety. It’s a staple in our house for sure.
