Cooking Tips  BACK TO RECIPES


Milk is an important part of a healthy diet, since it's a source of calcium and vitamin D, which the body needs to absorb calcium. It's also a good source of other nutrients, such as protein and phosphorus that are necessary for strong bones and good health. Enjoy Hood® Milk straight from your glass, or incorporate Hood Milk into your recipes to make sure you get enough milk in your diet.

  • You can substitute 1% Lowfat or Skim Milk for Whole Milk in recipes without a noticeable difference in the resulting product.
  • If you don't like the taste of dairy products, try disguising them. For example, whip up a fruit smoothie from milk, bananas, and ice in the blender.
  • Use Hood Simply Smart® Milks in place of higher fat varieties to add rich, creamy flavor to your favorite family recipes.
