Peanut Milk: The Plant-Based Protein You’ve Been Waiting For

It’s no secret that Americans love peanuts (at least not to us).  What you may not realize is that alternative milks and plant-based proteins have changed the way we shop. If you’re already a fan of alternative milks, you know they’re not all the same – especially when it comes to protein content.  More than ever, consumers are demanding products that compare favorably with cow’s milk on that front. 

New to the alternative milk market is Elmhurst’s Cleanest Protein Shake on the Planet™ - Chocolate Peanut - a new ready-to-serve beverage packed with 20 grams of plant-based protein from peanuts. The protein in peanuts promote muscle recovery – making this a great post-workout drink option.
