I remember when I first had the opportunity to try Silk Almond milk. I was skeptical to say the least. In my head I had compared it to soy milk, which I didn’t like. But, when I was in the midst of a weight loss program, I was looking for ways to cut calories and not taste. I noticed that I could have a cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk in my smoothie and it was only 30 calories, compared to 120 calories in 2% milk! I discovered that I actually liked it a lot better than having regular milk in it. Something about it tasted cleaner, yet better and filling.
This past week, I decided to introduce my kids to Silk Almondmilk, to see if they would like it as much as I do. I’m looking for ways for all of us to get healthier and I figured this was one way we could do it. Especially if I could put it in our green smoothies. I decided to give them a taste test.
They could tell the difference in what it looked like, so I made them close their eyes before they chose which one they liked better. First, they tasted the regular milk. Then, the Silk Almondmilk. All 3 of them chose the almond milk as their favorite and they were begging for more!
Here they are, enjoying chugging that glass of almond milk, after they made their choice. :)
I’m thankful to have options that make the foods we need to eat in order to lose weight, a little more tasty, yet healthy. I’m also thankful that my kids don’t mind appeasing me and trying new things. Almond milk is more nutritionally dense than regular cow’s milk. Any time we drink it, we’re getting multiple nutrients, less fat and it’s completely safe for anyone who is gluten free or lactose intolerant. That’s a win-win situation to me!
