My family is pretty adventurous and will try new things often. (You should have heard the recent discussion with our 4 year old about eating bugs- crickets, grasshoppers, slugs, etc. Funny stuff!) Anyway, when we got the chance to try Silk Pure Almond Milk, I figured my boys would at least give it a go.
I was given coupons for 2 half-gallons of Silk Pure Almond Milk, so I used them to get one of the Original and one Vanilla. That way we could try both varieties and see what we thought. I'm glad that I chose both kinds, because they are quite different in their flavor. The Vanilla Silk Pure Almond is a lot sweeter than the Original. To just drink a glass of milk, though, I would choose the Vanilla one. We also tried using it in our cooking and noticed that you don't need to use as much as the recipe calls for.
Here are some benefits of Almond Milk from Silk:
For starters, it's the almonds. Every little nut is a perfectly packaged powerhouse of natural antioxidants and more. In fact, we like to think of almonds as Nature's Perfect Nutrition – and that's where our almondmilk begins.
Almonds are recognized by health professionals as a nutritious addition to a healthy diet. A serving of almonds provides an excellent source of vitamin E (a natural antioxidant), and a good source of protein and fiber. In fact, almonds are higher in protein and fiber than any other tree nut. Plus, they're naturally low in saturated fat and cholesterol-free.
It doesn't take much to get from whole, natural almonds to Silk Pure Almond™ almondmilk. Each glass provides an excellent source of natural antioxidants* and as much calcium and vitamin D as dairy milk, with absolutely no cholesterol, saturated fat, dairy or soy. And, best of all, a serving of Silk Pure Almond Original almondmilk is only 60 calories, and a delicious glass of Vanilla is just 90.
Like every product in the Silk® family, Silk Pure Almond almondmilk treats your body to perfectly delicious nutrition, just as Nature intended.
*Fortified with natural antioxidant Vitamin E
We liked the Silk Pure Almond Milk, but it is a little different. I think as a dairy alternative, it's a great thing. But in general I think I'll stick with regular milk. Would you like to try it for yourself, see how below.
