There's a new option in the world of non-cow's milk beverages. Perhaps you've tried soy or rice beverages, which are typically fortified to make them nutritionally similar to cow's milk. But have you tried the fortified soy and oat beverage, Earth Shake? Soylutions pours nutrition into every glass, and having tasted the Chocolate Blast, the flavour is pretty darn good too. There's a fair bit of sugar in each glass but most of the nutrition facts are impressive. Earth Shake also comes in Super Cool Original and Vanilla Burst flavours: www.soylutions.ca
