BROOMFIELD, Colo. -- Most people already know milk doesn't just come from a cow anymore. These days, you can get coconut milk, rice milk, almond milk, even hemp milk, and now banana milk, thanks to Broomfield-based WhiteWave Foods.

“It’s made from two nutritious foods, milk and banana.  We combined those two together and make a deliciously smooth and snackably good product,” said Wendy Behr, vice president of research and development at WhiteWave Foods.

The product, called Sir Bananas, is being tested in several states, including Colorado.

"Specifically, we are targeting moms with children between the ages of 5 and 12," Behr said.

FOX31's Dan Daru put it to the taste test and he approved, saying it tasted like a milk shake or smoothie. He also asked a dietitian to test it nutritionally.

“A glass of milk naturally occurring is from lactose and has about 12 grams of sugar in it,” registered dietitan Jessica Crandall said. "This has 24 grams of sugar in it.”
