I recently tried Silk Almondmilk Protein + Fiber® as part of my breakfast, instead of the rice milk I usually have with my cereal, and I was so excited because it has lots more protein and fiber than my rice milk does! My brand of rice milk contains only one gram of protein, and 0 grams of fiber, and my children’s regular cow’s milk contains 8 grams of protein, but 0 grams of fiber. So with the Silk Almondmilk Protein + Fiber® you’re getting the benefit of both in one serving.
It comes packaged just like your regular favorite milk, in the dairy section of the grocery. According to the expiration date, it seems to stay fresh longer than cows milk too, which for our family is a good thing, because my kids only drink milk in their cereal, so we don’t go through it really quickly, and I hate to throw out food that’s expired because we didn’t eat it (or drink it) in time.
I used the Silk Almondmilk Protein + Fiber® on my cereal, and it had a very mild, slightly sweet taste that went well with my cereal. I plan on trying it in a fruit smoothie too, to add some extra protein and fiber to the frozen fruit, and I bet it would work just fine in baked goods in place of regular milk, as I’ve used rice milk as a substitue in things like cornbread or pancakes, with no problems.
It’s good to know, right from the label, that Silk Almondmilk Protein + Fiber® is free of dairy, soy, gluten, lactose, cholesterol, eggs, casen and MSG. It also contains 45% of your daily recommended value of calcium.
If you’d like to give it a try, here is a link to a store locater where you can find Silk® products. My local Giant Eagle and Walmart both carry them!
