I have been a fan of Silk Soymilk for years. The vanilla and chocolate are my favorite, but during the holidays I really look forward to their Silk Nog...so delish! So because of my love for Silk I am very excited they have contacted me about this new product...Silk PureAlmond.
"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."
As I sit here sipping my ice cold glass of Silk PureAlmond I am in heaven. The texture is like velvet, the taste is slightly sweet (I chose the Vanilla flavor) with a mild almond finish. M has just asked me for her second glass full so I know she is loving it as well. Plus I enjoy knowing this is good for my body as well as my family's.
Question: What are the nutritional benefits of almondmilk?
Answer: With 90 or fewer calories per serving and no saturated fat or cholesterol, almondmilk is a refreshing, delicious and versatile choice for a healthy lifestyle.
Excellent source of the antioxidant vitamin E
Great source of calcium (as much per serving as dairy milk!)
Good source of vitamin A
Zero saturated fat
Silk PureAlmond is a wonderful alternative for people who are lactose intolerant or allergic to soy products. Use it for your morning cereal, substitute it for milk in your baking or as I did make a morning mocha frappe with it! Silk PureAlmond has some amazing recipes like Chocolate Cinnamon Cake, Soups, Nutty Mocha Latte and more!
