June is National Dairy Month. With the rise in temperatures we’ve been experiencing, it just makes good sense to use this excuse to pursue some summer refreshment of the dairy variety. 

Dairy and summer just go together. Ice cream treats taste more refreshing as they help us cool down from the day’s heat and humidity. Milkshakes, cones, popsicles, they all enjoy renewed popularity during the summer months. With the arrival of the Summer Solstice, summer is undeniably here. Make the most of it with the delights of dairy products available to provide relief, or at least coping mechanisms from the summer heat. 

Cheese cubes and balls, fruit smoothies, ice cream sandwiches, bowls of ice cream and fruit str just some the treats to be savored in June, and for all the summer days and nights ahead. Yogurt is another means by which dairy goodness can be found. Parfaits with fruit and nuts, topped with whipped cream go so well on a warm summer afternoon sitting on the back deck. Non-fat, low-fat  and whole milk are options as well.

Naturally, you can’t forget dairy’s natural place in the kitchen. Kids pour it over their favorite morning cereals, and who doesn’t like scrambled eggs or omelets made with milk, or pancakes and waffles with milk in the mix. Baking screams for dairy products. Cakes of all kinds, bread puddings, pies, brownies, cheese puffs are just a few delights made special with the blending in of milk. Swiss Chard Artichoke Bread Pudding is a wonderful creation and calls for milk in its creation. 

How about a slice of cheese as a quick snack straight from the refrigerator the next a youngster asks for cookie. Slice an apple or pear and wrap it in cheese slices and chill them in the fridge, to have ready when the demand comes.  

There are options galore to the quick-witted and creative mind. Let June be but the beginning of enjoying the refreshing relief dairy products can bring to your summer season. Got a favorite summer dairy recipe you want to share? Drop us a note and we’ll see about getting it out there for everyone to sample.
