Silk Pure Almond Milk Review & Giveaway

I am not a huge milk drinker unless it is chocolate milk; and well it just does not agree with me and my waist. I mean the added calories and sugar is not a plus on my weight loss journey. Did you know that whole milk has 150 calories per serving where Silk's Almond Milk only has 60 calories per serving? Furthermore you can get the sweetened vanilla flavor and it only has 90 calories per serving! I also learned that almond milk has as much calcium and vitamin d as regular milk, but is naturally fat and cholesterol free.Wait it gets better Almond Milk is Soy, Lactose Free, and is great for a Vegan diet!



We got to try both varieties of Silk's new Almond Milk. I was pleasantly surprised. I will say the Vanilla was to sweet to be used in cereal or anything that was already a little sweet. I did really enjoy the Vanilla flavor in coffee and did not need to add sugar or creamer when using it!

I loved using the original in place of milk in many recipes and even enjoyed just drinking it!
You can find great tasting recipes to try on Silks website. I think I am going to make the Almond Crunch Oatmeal for breakfast tomorrow! You can find Silk Pure Almond Milk in just about any grocery store and it retails for $3.99 a half gallon.
