A few weeks ago I splurged on one of my shopping trips and picked up some Silk Vanilla Almondmilk. I know, living life on the edge.
Anyways, I’ve heard amazing things about this and figured it was about time for me to get in on it.
And now I ask… why did it take me so long?!
I’m sure you’ve seen a few different posts about how I’m using this in my everyday meals… I love it because it is better for you than regular milk and has a richer taste. In just one glass of Silk Almondmilk, you can get 45% of your daily calcium versus only 30% for milk. Plus it has 10 fewer calories per serving compared to milk. If you choose the unsweetened version — it only has 30 calories per serving! Plus you don’t lose any of the nutritional value!
So, where has Silk found it’s way into my diet? Here are a few of my favorites:
- CLICK protein shake — 4 oz Silk Vanilla Almondmilk with 8 ounces water and one scoop vanilla latte. Major yum!
- Pancakes — replace milk with Silk. Result? A much fluffier and thicker pancake.
- Cereal — I love that it’s thicker so it gives it a better texture, plus the vanilla flavor complements it nicely.
- Mashed potatoes — My favorite! And so easy to switch to Silk for extra flavor.
- Eggs — I added some Silk instead of milk to some eggs I made last weekend and they came out so much more fluffy!
It’s so fun experimenting to see where I can fit Silk into my life, especially since nutrients like calcium are so very important for runners. I even made Fettucine Alfredo with it and it was amazing. I loved how it gave it a sweeter flavor and this is the first time in my life of making alfredo sauce that it actually thickened up and wasn’t a runny mess. Best part? It tasted healthier. Recipe coming soon.
In the meantime, Silk is releasing 30 new recipes on its Facebook page from my fellow FitFluential Ambassadors! A good handful has been posted already, with more to come… and there are some AWESOME ones.
