This post is sponsored by Friendship Dairy!! A brand I love and use on a regular basis!!!!
I love dairy!! Sour cream, cottage cheese, buttermilk, 1% milk and every other cheese product you can imagine!! I have been told multipe times that maybe I should give up dairy for health reason, but I can’t and won’t. I believe that dairy has place in a healthy diet in moderation!
Friendship dairy has been a part of my cooking like for as long as I can remember. Cottage cheese, sour cream and buttermilk are amongst my favorites. I ALWAYS soak my bone-in chicken in buttermilk prior to oven frying it to help make it moist and delicious. I always use Friendship buttermilk because it is low-fat and delicious! Their 1% whipped cottage cheese if an absolute favorite of mine, I usually mix it with a mashed banana, 1 tsp of nut butter, and cinnamon for an awesome breakfast.
I was so excited to learn about Friendship’s Food Truck Tour of the NYC metro area featuring a free menu of Friendship protein-packed, on-the-go cottage cheese creations. This food truck will be rolling across the NYC Metro area from now until June 4th!!! I was actually pretty sad I missed it at the LI Marathon 🙁
For the Food Truck’s launch celebrity chef Rocco DiSpirito served up his special Friendship Apple Pie Smoothie created with1% Low Fat Friendship Cottage Cheese. DiSpirito has been passionate about making healthy lifestyle choices for the past seven years. He has made it his mission to prove that healthy and delicious are not mutually exclusive.
