Making Dairy Beverages with Honey

Milk makes a body strong, but milk with honey makes a body strong and full of energy.

From chocolate milk to muscle-building milks, this traditional beverage has been co-opted by endurance athletes and weightlifters as the perfect beverage pre- and post-workout. By adding honey to milk, processors are gaining further marketing benefits, capitalizing on honey’s ability to provide a natural energy boost through its 17 grams of carbohydrates per tablespoon.

Milk with honey also tastes great, and in the dairy aisle, flavor dominates. From milks to drinkable yogurts to non-dairy milks, flavor options are grabbing shelf space from their traditional counterparts. But it’s not just any flavor. The flavor has to be natural, familiar and maintain the health halo surrounding milk.

It’s no wonder why honey has become the go-to flavor for many dairy beverage processors. It’s natural, loved by consumers and functional.
