So, what is pienas?

Pienas, which translates to "milk" in Lithuanian, is a versatile and nutrient-dense ingredient that has been used for centuries in culinary traditions around the world. It contains essential vitamins and minerals such as calcium, vitamin D, and potassium, making it an excellent source of nutrition for bone and muscle health. Pienas can be consumed in its raw state or processed into various dairy products such as cheese, yogurt, and butter. Its creamy texture and subtle sweetness make it a popular ingredient in both savory and sweet dishes, from creamy soups to decadent desserts. Whether enjoyed on its own or incorporated into your favorite recipe, pienas is a delicious and nutritious addition to any meal.
