For as long as I can remember, I’ve enjoyed barricading myself in the kitchen and cooking/baking for my family/loved ones. My love for searching out and whipping up delicious recipes came from spending days in the kitchen with my aunts and cousins, putting together wholesome meals for our family. Special occasions were celebrated by spending hours cooking together before gathering to share our meal creations with our loved ones.
This was a tradition that I was introduced to during my childhood and carried through into my teen years as well into adulthood. Now that I’m married and have a family of my own, I enjoy teaching my own children the art of cooking as well as sharing the pride and accomplishment that comes with providing a tasty and wholesome meal for our loved ones.Make Pineapple Mango Muffins with #HansDairy Click To Tweet
Thanks to Google and this nifty site called Pinterest, we never run out of exciting new dishes to try and rarely make the same dish twice, unless the recipe turns out to be exceptional and is added to our favorites list. Although we don’t often repeat the same dish twice, one thing that a lot of our recipes have in common is that the majority of them have dairy incorporated. From milk to sour cream and everything in-between, my family and I love dairy products so we are all too willing to try out new recipes that are dairy based.
As much as we love dairy in our home, we know that these days it can be hard to find good, wholesome products that aren’t laden with yucky ingredients like hormones and GMO’s. You’d be surprised at how many unsavory ingredients and chemicals there are in some of your favorite dairy products. This is why Hans Dairy has made it their mission to bring their customers all-natural dairy products that prove quality truly does trump quantity, every time.
A small, family-owned business that was established in 1997, Hans Dairy operates on a small scale to bring big taste to your home in the form of products like smoothies, whipped butter, pudding, yogurt, etc. Founded by Mr. and Mrs. Hans, who immigrated from India to Canada, the company started as a way to give back to the community that first welcomed them to their new home with open arms. In addition to showing their thanks, they also wanted to meet a growing demand in the ethnic community that had yet to be met.
Together, the couple crafted authentic Indian products that tasted just like the foods they’d grown up with in their small village back in India. They started out with Dahi, an Indian style yogurt and soon branched out with products like Lassi, a yogurt drink, Kheer, which is a rice pudding and a variety of other authentic Indian dairy products.
For two generations, the Hans family has been supplying families in Canada with delicious, all-natural products that they love! I was able to partner with Hans Dairy recently to help bring awareness to the company with mothers/families that have been in search of more natural products to feed their families and I have to say, I’ve been impressed. Just recently I used some of the Hans Dairy yogurt and Mango smoothie products to create an amazing pineapple mango muffin recipe and it was absolutely delicious!
