Introducing the New Worry-Free Flip Cap from Dairy Pure -- Review and #Giveaway

Disclosure: I was sent a sample from Dairy Pure in order to write up an honest review.  All views shared are mine and mine alone.


I don't know about you, but I found myself counting down the days until their 1st birthday when I could switch them to milk and finally save money.  We were spending about $200 every two weeks on liquid formula for them. And, now whenever I go to the market to stock up on milk, I reach for Dairy Pure  with their new Worry-Free Flip Cap. Have you seen this new worry-free flip cap?  I had heard about it, and think I even saw a commercial for it, but it wasn't until last week that I finally had the chance to pick it up.  Here in CT this milk is available in most grocery and retail stores.  I ended up picking it up at Walmart for $4.25 for whole milk.

Introducing the newest thing in milk since the dairy cow: Dairy Pure's new Worry-Free Flip Cap! It's easier to use and protects everything you love about Dairy Pure milk along with a 5-Point Purity Checklist. The Worry-Free Flip Cap also helps keep your milk cap where it belongs; on the bottle. Plus, Dairy Pure's Purity Seal makes sure your milk stays fresh from farm to fridge.

I have shared in the past how I suffer from arthritis.  It had come away while I was in cancer treatment, but recently came back.  Not fun when you have little ones and you blog and type like I do.  But, I look for things that help make live easier, especially when I am a having a flare up, or have stiff fingers.  And, this new worry-free flip cap made getting the girls milk so much easier, as I didn't have to worry about having to unscrew the milk cap, which sometimes gets hard during flare ups.  

Another reason why I loved this new cap is that there have been a few occasions that we would be pouring milk into the girls' bottles and sippy cups, and either the girls would take the lid from the counter, or when we turned around, the cap was missing.  Now, what do you do when you need to put the milk away and don't have the lid?  Either drink it all up so it doesn't go back without a cap on the fridge, or try to fill sealable containers to store the milk.  

If you use Garelick Farms milk, were you aware of their 5-Point Purity Checklist?  I only learned about it recently when visiting their website to find a store near me who carried the new worry-free flip cap milk.  As I read through the five purity points, I couldn't help but feel good that a brand I have grown up with and give to my family is only offering the best to the consumers.

I recently shared a recipe for lavender tea cakes with honey cream cheese filling, and had so many readers share how they tried the recipe and loved it.  Some are even making it and bringing for dessert for Easter dinner.  So, I thought I would share the recipe again, if you are designated to bring dessert for Easter dinner, or want to try a fun new recipe in the kitchen, that will have family and friends asking you for the recipe. :-)  And, it contains milk, so you can try out with Dairy Pure Milk with new Worry-Free Flip Cap . :-)  I hope you enjoy!

Chocolate Dipped Lavender Tea Cakes with Honey Cream Cheese Filling

Serves: 12

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 35-40 minutes for silicone mold or 55-60 minutes for prepared 9x9 pan


For Honey Cream Cheese Filling:

1/2 cup honey
1 cup of confectioners sugar
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
2 TBSP. unsalted butter, softened
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract

For Lavender Tea Cakes:

1 cup sugar
1 stick unsalted butter
1 lg. egg
1 egg white
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 cup milk
2 TBSP. lavender, finely chopped
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
*optional zest of 1 lemon or orange

For Chocolate Dip (optional)

1/2 bag of semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips


Honey Cream Cheese Filling:

Cream honey, cream cheese and butter together in medium size bowl.  Once combined, add in vanilla extract followed by slowly adding in confectioners sugar.  Scrape down bowl in between adding more confectioners sugar to make sure mixture is combined well.  Once confectioners sugar is incorporated, cover bowl with plastic wrap and place bowl in refrigerator until ready to use.  Prior to using, let sit on counter to be brought to room temperature, so that it is easier to spread.

Lavender Tea Cakes:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

In large bowl, mix all dry ingredients together -- flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt,  
With a hand mixer set at med./high speed, cream together butter and sugar.  Once combined, slowly add in one lg. egg.  Once combined, add the egg white, followed by the vanilla extract and then milk.  Make sure to scrape down sides of bowl when mixing and combining ingredients.  Then, slowly add in dry ingredients, again stopping in between to scrape down sides.  Once combined, stir in finely chopped lavender and optional zest of lemon or orange.  

Pour batter into silicone mold or 9x9 pan, which has been sprayed with cooking spray.  

Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes for silicone mold and 55-60 minutes for prepared loaf pan.  Tea cakes are done when you can insert a toothpick into center and comes out clean.  Remove from oven and let sit for 5 minutes in mold or loaf pan to cool, before transferring to wire rack to continue to cool.  

Once cooled, add cream cheese filling between two tea cakes, or simply spread on top.  Or, if you plan to dip in chocolate, do this before adding filling into center.

Chocolate Dip for Tea Cakes:

Put chocolate chips into glass measuring cup and in intervals of 30 seconds each, microwave on high.  In between, stop and stir to combine. Once fully melted, pour into silicone mold if you used for baking tea cakes, or simply dip the tops of tea cakes into the chocolate.  Place on baking sheet lined with wax paper and put in refrigerator to chill.  If using a silicone mold, add chocolate and then put cooled tea cakes on top.  Then, place mold in refrigerator for 1 hr. to set.
