Make your own cookies, but get fresh milk delivered from:
Mylkman Almond Mylk
You may be getting your fix of yummy Mylkman Almond Mylk from your local Farmers Market, but did you know you can get it delivered to your door every Thursday? Based in Venice Beach, Mylkman is the first ever almond milk delivery service which brings you milk made from coconuts and raw organic almonds, sans sweeteners, additives, dairy soy or gluten. Fresh as fresh can be, it’s delivered the day it’s made. If you’ve never even thought about going vegan, this might convince you. If you have any dairy allergies in the family, the convenience of this delicious delivery service will make your year.
The Milk Man
Variety is the name of the game at The Milk Man delivery – they carry raw, organic and traditional milk products from local dairies such as Alta Dena, Broguieres (in bottles!) and Claravale Farm. You can also get products like La Brea bread and fresh eggs. This means you can snack on cookies while you make an egg sandwich for dinner (Brinner!). With all milk being junk-free, like no antibioitics or RBST, you can chug away. Put The Milk Man on speed dial in time for Christmas – the Egg Nog from Broguieres will be the hit of your holiday party.
