Have you ever heard of Silk Pure Almond milk? I hadn't until I was approached to test some out with my family. Each glass provides an excellent source of natural antioxidants and as much calcium and vitamin D as dairy milk, but without the cholesterol, saturated fat, dairy or soy. Best of all, a serving of Silk Pure Almond Original almondmilk is only 60 calories!

So, what makes almondmilk Silk Pure Almond so healthy? That was my first question. The answer...the almonds. Every little nut is a perfectly packaged powerhouse of natural antioxidants and more. Almonds are considered a nutritious addition to any healthy diet. A serving provides an excellent source of vitamin E and a good source of protein and fiber.

  • Splash almond milk on your favorite cereal. Good morning, antioxidants!
  • Have you tried an almondmilk latte? Prepare to get hooked.
  • Whirl up a smoothie with Silk Pure Almond and your favorite fruit. (Throw in a handful of crushed almonds if you’re feeling extra nutty.)
  • Almond milk cooks and bakes to perfection, and can be substituted for milk in many recipes. Discover soups, cakes, muffins and more – with fewer calories than you’d think.
Silk Pure Almond milk is also a great way to get more antioxidants into your diet. Antioxidants are beneficial components that occur naturally in many whole foods including nuts, fruits and veggies.

I am always open to trying new things, so when I was asked to test out Silk Pure Almond milk I was thrilled. This was the first time I had tried Silk products, so I was very curious as to what I would think. The first time I tried it, I ate it with my cereal. I really thought it might have too strong of a flavor for my liking, but it ended up being very good! It has such a smooth flavor. They also have a vanilla flavor which I would like to try at some point too.

I don't think we'll switch over to drinking just Silk products, but I did love being able to experience something new and definitely think we'll be purchasing more Silk products in the future! I really appreciate knowing that there is a fantastic alternative out there to regular milk.
