Silk For Milk 10 Day Challenge + GIVEAWAY!

Author: Healthnuttxo

Silk contacted me and asked if I would like to participate in the Silk For Milk 10-Day Challenge. I was sent coupons for a free product of choice. I picked the PureAlmond Unsweetened Almond Milk.

By itself, it had a very fresh flavor, but bland. It was thicker than skim milk, and kind of had the consistency of soy milk. I really liked it’s creaminess!

Instead of normal milk, I used it with cereal

and put a splash in my scrambled eggs!

Overall, I thought it was pretty great!  With the cereal, I also added a packet of stevia and it was just perfect! With the scrambled eggs, there wasn’t much of a taste change, but I noticed a very silky smooth consistency, that I believe the almond milk helped contribute to. And at 35 calories and 45% daily calcium needs per cup!?! Fantastic!

Now….Giveaway time!

I absolutely love almond milk. I mostly have it with cereal and fruit for breakfast before going to the gym in the morning. Although it’s low on protein, I find it’s lighter on my stomach than dairy is, and I have never had a problem with it.

So, the other day at Trader Joe’s, I went to get some Almond Milk and noticed that Trader Joe’s had their own version. I’m always up for trying new brands, so I put it in my cart and bought it.

Once home, I tried it two ways. By itself, and with cereal and fruit with 1 packet of stevia sweetener, seeing as it was the unsweetened variety.

By itself, it was really creamy tasting- almost like the cream you put in coffee. There really wasn’t much vanilla flavor otherwise, but I could have totally used it as is with my cereal.

Next, with the cereal/fruit/stevia, it had a  VERY strong vanilla flavor. I was amazed at how the sweetness I added really brought out the vanilla in this almond milk. So good! But very unique, I dont think I have ever had an almond milk with that much vanilla flavor (and I add the same amount of sweetness to my cereal every morning!)

Overall, pretty good! I would get it again. Some things to note that it stated on the carton was that this is “Gluten Free”, “Lactose Free”, “Dairy Free” and “Vegan”. It’s also a tad high in sodium, 180 mg, but I’m not overly concerned with my sodium levels so I think that’s a good level for me. 4 stars

1 cup is 40 calories, 3 grams of fat, 2 grams of carbohydrates, 1 gram of fiber, less than 1 gram of sugar and 1 gram of protein.

What’s your favorite type of milk? rice? almond? oat? Please let me know! 🙂
