I am excited to let you know that Silk, beloved for it’s Soy Milk, has launched a new product to their line. Almond Milk is Dairy and Soy free, so it a great option for those who may have dairy and soy allergies or who are looking for a new taste. I got both the original and vanilla flavors to review and loved them! The original flavor is nuttier than a rice milk, and has a much lighter, smoother flavor compared to soy milk for me.
I have bought soy and rice milk in the past, but typically did not like the original flavors, and only used the vanilla flavored versions with cereal. The Silk Almond Milk, on the other hand, is a non-dairy milk I would happily drink by the glass or add to my favorite smoothie. I haven’y tried it in baking yet, but I think it would be great in even something as simple as pancakes and would add another dimension of flavor to many cakes and muffins.
Whether you need a dairy or soy alternative to milk or just love to incorporate different proteins, flavors and vitamins into your diet, give the new Silk Almond Milk a try!
Some more information on Silk Almond Milk:
What makes almondmilk Silk Pure Almond so healthy? 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.
We’ve all heard a lot about the benefits of antioxidants – and Silk Pure Almond™ milk is a great way to get more of these healthy must-haves into your everyday routine.
Antioxidants are beneficial components that occur naturally in many whole foods including nuts, fruits, vegetables and soy. Health and nutrition pros agree that a diet rich in antioxidants can help you look, feel and live your best.
But how, exactly, do antioxidants work? Bear with us for a little bit of science: “Oxidation” is a chemical reaction that accompanies many normal processes in the body. When oxidation occurs, it releases potentially harmful molecules known as “free radicals.” Excessive free radical production is thought to cause “oxidative damage”; a phenomenon that may contribute to aging and a number of chronic health problems including cancer and cardiovascular disease. A growing body of research indicates that consuming foods with antioxidant properties may help combat free radicals and protect against oxidative damage, supporting overall good health. Best of all, foods rich in natural antioxidants – like fruits and veggies and many nuts – tend to be great for you in other ways, too.
Vitamin E is an important antioxidant that has been studied for its role in supporting normal heart and brain function, as well as promoting a healthy complexion. Each serving of Silk Pure Almond provides an impressive 50% of the recommended daily value of this essential nutrient. To make sure your diet includes the full spectrum of beneficial antioxidants, pile on plenty of colorful produce in addition to healthy staples like almondmilk.
