Marshmallow Peeps Milk Is Back With a Vengeance

Low-fat milk can be an excellent addition to any diet: It's packed with vitamin D, calcium, and protein, and (for lactose-friendly people) it's a great way to refuel after a workout or curb a hunger pang. The trouble is when you add Peeps into the mix. Yes, that's a thing. You've got a sugar bomb that would derail any good intentions you had for a healthy week.

Prairie Farms has brought out new flavors of Peeps milk that will arrive in time for Easter, and the flavors are rather sweet, to say the least. Don't get us wrong, we love us a good marshmallow treat in moderation. A good sweet snack can actually help you stick to an otherwise healthy diet and pick you up when your blood sugar is low. But 37 grams of sugar per all-too-easy-to-go-overboard serving? Yikes! We suggest satisfying your sweet tooth elsewhere. So for every flavor, we've got a dessert alternative to fulfill your sweet tooth needs.
