If you want something to pour over your cereal, if youre whipping up a smoothie, or if youre looking for an ice-cold glass of refreshment, low-fat or fat-free (skim) milk should keep your taste buds smiling.
But if youre in the mood for Fettuccine Alfredo, turkey tetrazzini, shrimp bisque, or something else thats usually made with cream, low-fat milk may leave your tongue a tad disappointed.
Enter Land O Lakes Fat Free Half & Half. It looks and tastes like half & half, but its made mostly of skim milk (and a little carrageenan for body) instead of half cream and half whole milk. That can revolutionize a typical Fettuccine Alfredo recipe, which could easily call for a quarter-cup (or more!) of heavy cream per serving, at the unsightly cost of 22 grams of fat, 14 of them saturated...not including the butter or Parmesan cheese. With Fat Free Half & Half, those numbers drop to zero, but the flavor doesnt budge.
You can also indulge in a tablespoon or two of Land O Lakes for your coffee, macaroni and cheese, or mashed potatoes. You wont save as much because each tablespoon of whole milk or real half & half has only a gram or two of fat. But if you use two or three tablespoons per cup of coffee...and drink two or three cups a day...maybe a pint of Fat Free Half & Half belongs in your fridge.
Weve got one in ours.
