This week I’ve been testing 3omega6 Flax milk which I really love.

3 Omega 6 Dairy free Flax drink is Dairy Free, Soya Free, Cholesterol Free, GMO Free, Lactose Free and Gluten Free

3-Omega-6 Dairy-free Flax drink is also packed with Calcium, Vitamins K and D2 which are important to maintain healthy bones and teeth, as well as 1,200 mg of omega 3 essential fatty acid which is so vital for people with eczema and allergies.

I’ve had it with my coffee and in porridge and I think it’s perfect. It has quite a thick viscous consistency but I love the taste. In a hot drink it’s perfect, it looks just like you’ve added normal milk, doesn’t split into little bits like rice and soya milk can and although it has quite a distinctive taste it goes well.

I also made porridge using Nairns gluten free muesli and it is equally perfect in this too. The blue berries and ground seeds from Linwoods are model’s own.

The only problem is they are not easy to find in stores. I found mine somewhere and have now forgotten where. No use here am I. I know you can get it in bulk from Amazon but they are not my favourite retailer. They do have a map of stockists on their website, though it didn’t appear to have any near me, despite the fact I have found them somewhere. I got the first carton at the Allergy Show last year and it’s well worth adding to your larder. I think we should all alternate between the different plant milks so I switch between oat milk, rice milk, coconut milk, hemp milk and this lovely flax milk. If you can tolerate it you could also incorporate almond milk and soya milk or even try making your own. This is one of my aims for this year. How hard can it be? Blog pending…

How boring to have to drink just the same old milk every day huh? I’m loving the variety. Has anyone else tried this? What did you think? It is an acquired taste so might not be everyone’s cup of tea.
