Do you have digestive issues when you drink milk? Get information about a2 Milk. It's from cows that produce it without the A1 protein.

This post was sponsored by a2 Milk® as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.

Our family loves to enjoy milk and cookies, especially on the weekends when we stay up later and watch some of our favorites TV shows. Cookies are at their best when they are warm just from the oven, don’t you agree? The hardest part is waiting for them cool long enough to enjoy. Warm cookies paired with a tall glass of cold milk, well, family time just doesn’t get any better than this!

Enjoy Your Milk Again With a2 Milk® 

I was reluctant to give up participating in our weekend tradition due to tummy troubles. It took me awhile to realize that drinking milk was the culprit. I learned that an independent study showed that 1 in 4 Americans have discomfort after drinking milk; yet only 5-7% of the population has been clinically diagnosed with a lactose intolerance medical condition. This is me for sure, and I could not put my finger on why I would feel so bloated and rumbly after drinking milk. I asked my siblings if they were diagnosed with lactose intolerance and they all said no, but they said they had dairy sensitivity too. It is interesting that once you start asking around, that it is a very common issue.

With a2 Milk®, you can enjoy great tasting milk without any symptoms. Isn’t that great news? It’s the A1 protein that causes issues and that “Post-Dairy Digestive Discomfort.”

a2 Milk® Comes From a2 Cows!

The a2 Milk® Company has partnered with dairy farmers in upstate New York and in the Midwest to expand the herds of specially selected a2 cows that produce milk that is free from the A1 protein, so this is real milk, just the way that Mother Nature intended. It’s not the same as the chemically processed milk alternatives or the nut or bean based beverages we have seen in stores. 

Plus a2 Milk® contains approximately 6 x’s the amount of calcium as soy beverages, approximately 8 x’s the protein of almond beverages and approximately 6 x’s the potassium levels of rice beverages so you can feel great about serving it to your family.

If you love the tradition of milk and cookies, try my easy recipe for Cranberry White Chocolate Cookies. The tart from the dried cranberries pairs perfectly with the sweet white chocolate. It is made with basic ingredients that you can easily find if you don’t already have them on hand. I usually make two batches; one to enjoy with the family and one to give away.

I’ve never heard of A2 cows or A2 milk before. This is great news for lots of people with A1 sensitivities.

These cranberry cookies look amazing. I am glad alternatives in the milk department exist for those who need them. I am not really a cow milk drinking person. I prefer the taste of nut milks. But this would be a better milk for baking!


I’m glad you found a milk alternative so you won’t have tummy troubles any more!! Great post!!

This a2 milk I am going to have to check out because my son has problems with his stomach as well. These cookies look delicious and who doesn’t love cookies along with their milk. I will have to try this recipe. Thanks for sharing the recipe and the milk.


Oh yum! I love white chocolate in cookies so this recipe is right up my alley. I drink a lot of almond milk, but I’d love to use something like this for baking and cooking

I will have to share this with a friend of mine. She is always saying how much she misses milk.


I used to be a BIG milk drinker, then I had kids and that went all down the drain… some reason my chemistry in my body changed and I no longer could handle dairy! With that being said… this new crazy milk I have never heard of might be the trick to my probs! woohoo!

Tiffany Hathorn

I’m definitely lactose intolerant, but it would be nice to be able to drink milk with no issue. The cookies look tasty!
