#MilkDrinkersMilk Challenge with Cravendale

Cravendale Milk

We recently got involved with the #MilkDrinkersMilk Challenge with Cravendale.

We get through a lot of milk in our house. I am an avid tea drinker and G will often have a glass of milk instead of squash or water. One thing I noticed, especially in the summer was how quickly our milk went off. I always keep an eye on the best before date and am a big fan of ‘the sniff the milk to see how it is’ test.

Cravendale is filtered for freshness, if I am honest, I had always read this and never really understood what this meant.

With this post in my mind I decided to dig a bit deeper  and find out exactly what this meant and how this made Cravendale different (and if I am honest more expensive) from the other milk on the supermarket shelf.

What Cravendale do differently is that their milk is passed through ceramic filters to remove the bacteria that turns milk sour, so we end up with purer milk that stays fresher for longer, without additives or preservatives. 

As a child I loved drinking milk but as I have got older I have forgotten how good a cold glass of milk from the fridge tastes. G has started having a glass of milk more often too, not just before bed and for breakfast but asking for a glass when he gets home from school too.

I can definitely say that Cravendale is staying fresher for longer than other milk we have used so our experience is definitely backing up their claims of the 7 day freshness.

(Although Cravendale is best enjoyed in it’s purest form I did rather enjoy it with my tea too!)
