Silk Milk Mini-Challenge Review and Giveaway--Closed


I enjoy milk.  Especially after anything chocolate.  So, I wasn't sure how I'd feel about taking a min-challenge and switching to Silk Milk in place of regular milk.  Since two of my doctor's advised against soy milk for me, I opted for unsweetened Almond Milk.  Knowing all the health benefits of nuts, especially almonds, I thought this would be a good fit for me.  Plus, I hate coconut, which they also offer.

The first thing I did, of course, was look at the nutrition label.  Wow!  It only has 35 calories verses 80 in fat-free milk, 0 grams of sugar, as opposed to 12, contains no cholesterol or saturated fats and has the added benefit of antioxidant Vitamin E.  It does have 2.5 grams of fat, but this is the good fats from nuts.  Of course, if it doesn't taste good, this stuff doesn't really matter.

I poured a tall glass of it.  Doesn't look like milk.  Sort of off-color and thin looking.  I took a taste.  I will warn you--it does not taste like milk, but it is good.  It is light, refreshing and I can easily use it to drink, cook with or use on cereal.  And, it really tastes good after chocolate--even better than milk because it has a light almondy taste.

Silk offer three different products in place of milk:
In order to encourage my readers to take the 10 day challenge and Switch to Silk, I am offering a giveaway.  One lucky reader will win a coupon for Silk and a Silk Branded Chicobag.  Don't want to wait for the giveaway to end?  Then head on over to Switch to Silk and get a coupon for some additional savings.
