Every year around this time, I began craving healthy. Considering I start my holiday post preparation and baking in early fall, I am ready for spring in the middle of december. After having gone through hundreds of pounds of butter and flour, I crave all things healthy and light. I have since filled my refrigerator with nothing but salad and smoothie ingredients!
I was so excited when I was contacted to review Silk’s new Cashewmilk. Personally, I am not a huge fan of milk and actually prefer nut milks, especially in my smoothies! Silk’s new Cashewmilk is a perfect dairy milk alternative! It has a subtle delicious cashew taste. Made with the special creaminess of cashews, NEW Silk Cashewmilk brings an irresistibly creamy taste that is perfect over cereal, in recipes or straight from the carton. It contains 50% more calcium than dairy milk with only 60 calories per serving (25% less than skim milk)* and is an excellent source of calcium and vitamin D.
Because it so new to the market, it may be a bit difficult to find (I found it at Walmart). Sign up for their newsletter or Facebook page to find the latest news on where to find it. Also, follow the Cashewmilk Pinterest page for more delicious recipes! Finally, if you are like me and craving healthy, make this delicious smoothie to jump start your day!
