Have You Discovered Ripple?

Did You Know

When I saw Ripple in the grocery store I immediately thought of the tv show Sanford and Son.  A popular Norman Lear comedy in the 1970’s starring Redd Foxx, Redds character Fred used to drink Ripple – an inexpensive wine made of grapes and citrus wine that was popular with many low income people in the 1970s.  But todays Ripple is no alcoholic wine.

Ripple is a plant based” milk” ideal for those who are lactose intolerant or looking for a cow or soy milk alternative.  Made from yellow peas, it has eight times the protein of almond milk and 15% more calcium than cows milk.  And depending on the flavor you chose, less sugar.   High in calcium and potassium it is also a good source of omega-3s and healthy fats. It is 100% vegan and gluten, GMO, lactose, nut, and soy free.  And it tastes good too!  To find out more visit their website at http://ripplefoods.com/plant-milk/
