Horizon Organic lowfat Chocolate Milk with DHA Omega-3 Review & 2 Winner Giveaway (3/29)


I am a chocolate LOVER, and it seems there is nothing it can’t cure for me :-) I also love to purchase organic products whenever possible, and although this is limited by my monthly food budget, milk is one thing that I purchase organic for my daughter no matter what. My rationale is that if you’re only going to switch a few things to be organic in your diet, choose the ones that you consume in the highest quantities. For my toddler, milk was the logical switch.

Well I have great news! Horizon has recently launched a low fat chocolate milk with DHA Omega-3 and it make a great way to blend a little indulgence with some added nutrients and brain power. My daughter loved it and I like that it was low fat, but still tasted satisfying. Chocolate milk is always a treat for her and I love that this chocolate milk has the same vitamins and nutrients as their non-flavored milk, has the added DHA and is a brand I trust.

Although not every supermarket is carrying this new product yet keep your eyes peeled in your area and if you’re bold enough you can even inquire when they anticipate carrying it in stock. This is a great product to add to your shopping list that your family is sure to love. 


Mmm chocolate! Horizon Organic low fat Chocolate Milk with DHA Omega-3 provides a great tasting and easy way to add calcium and DHA to your family¹s diet. DHA Omega-3 is an important nutrient that helps support heart, brain and eye health, and it¹s available in lowfat half gallons.



  • DHA belongs to a category of healthy fatty acids known as Omega-3’s. Found in high concentrations in the tissues of the brain and eye, DHA Omega-3 is thought to help support healthy function in these areas. DHA has also been shown to help support heart health.
  • DHA provides a nutritional boost for children’s growing minds and bodies. Children’s brains grow incredibly fast. In fact, the brain nearly quadruples in the first five years of life.
  • DHA is a key structural component of the brain, yet many young children don’t get their recommended daily amount of DHA as it is found in a limited number of food sources.
  • Horizon Organic Milk Plus DHA Omega-3 is fortified with a natural, 100 percent vegetarian and sustainable source of DHA – a safe, wholesome, delicious way to bring more of this important nutrient into your family’s diet.

Flavored Milk is a Nutrient-Rich Beverage
– Flavored milk provides the same nine essential nutrients as unflavored milk (calcium, potassium, phosphorous, protein, vitamins A, D, B12, Riboflavin and niacin), and can help kids meet their calcium requirements.
– Flavored milk consumers did not have higher total fat or calorie intakes than non milk consumers Kids Love the Taste of Flavored Milk.
– According to 2005 USDA data, 66% of the milk chosen by children in schools is flavored.
Chocolate Milk is an Effective Post-Exercise Recovery Beverage
– A 2006 study showed that low fat milk was as effective at post-exercise rehydration as sports drinks
– Because of the natural carb:pro ratio in flavored milks, low fat chocolate milk is an effective post-exercise recovery beverage.
– The appropriate carb:pro ratio for improving endurance performance is about 4:1 However, effective ranges can vary from 2:1 and up to 5:1.
– Consuming carbohydrate and protein post workout has been shown to:
  • Enhance muscle glycogen formation
  • Promote a hormonal environment that encourages muscle growth
  • Promote muscle protein production
  • May lessen immune-suppressive effects due of intense exercise

    i love horizon milk and buy it for my 2 yr old. He loves it and i love that it's organic. I hate buying regular milk with all the hormones these days. :( I am a big fan of the little single choco milks, too. Those are great to pair with a lunch.
    Our local Kroger, right down the street, sells them, thankfully!

    I love that it is organic, lower in fat, and pre-mixed to save me time! With a 15 month old that gets into everything, the quicker I can pour chocolate milk for my other kids, the better!

  141. My nearest retailer is Shoppers Food in Centreville, VA and my favorite thing about this product is that it doesn't need to be refrigerated
