A few years ago, I stopped drinking dairy milk and started using milk alternatives in my drinks, my cereal, and smoothies.   My stomach would become upset and Emma's digestion hasn't been normal since she had a G-Tube (feeding tube) put in and removed.  I still cook with regular milk and creams but for drinking? Gimme something without the dairy.   I tried soy milk and I didn't like the taste.  I tried a few different kinds of milk alternatives like Almond, Oat, Rice, and Hemp and I found I liked almond better but some of the brands were hit or miss.  A year ago, I tried Silk Almondmilk and have been sold since.  I just liked the overall smoothness, the richer texture and taste better than the other brands I tried previously.  Also- there are some benefits of almond milk such as more calcium than dairy and higher protein.

 I had to run to Safeway and pick up some Silk Almond Milk and other groceries.  I learned that Silk has NEW Almond Milk blends.  I was so excited and picked up the Almond Coconut Blend and the Almondmilk Protein + Fiber.

Besides the fact that Silk AlmondMilk has 50% more calcium than cow's milk for BOTH varieties, the Protein+Fiber has 5 g of protein and 5 g of fiber.  The Almond Coconut Blend is only 35 calories per serving.

That's a win to me.  

We can always use more fiber and calcium, this is a win win to me and mine!

Emma loves chocolate milk. She gets it as a treat when she's been making great choices.  I made her a chocolate milk with the Almondmilk with protein +fiber.  It was a win!
