I really enjoy trying new things and when I was given the chance to review the new Silk Pure Almond Milk, I was super excited since I love cow’s milk and Silk soy milk. I could easily drink a gallon of milk every day on my own, no sharing. I did however plan to share this to get some other opinions.

You probably know the Silk brand for their yummy soy milk, which a great portion of people drink because of lactose intolerance and some even drink it for its great health properties. The Silk brand soy milk has a really great taste that is not overpowering. I figured since I really love almonds and eat them daily I would surely like Silk Pure Almond Milk. I was right!

Silk Pure Almond Milk is made from real almonds and contains no dairy or soy. Silk Almond Milk also contains no saturated fat or cholesterol and has fewer calories than cow’s milk! Another great benefit is that each eight ounce glass contains 50% of the recommended daily allowance of vitamin E, as well as having as much calcium and vitamin D as whole cow’s milk.

Each eight ounce glass of the original flavor Silk Almond Milk has only 60 calories per glass and the Vanilla variety offers 90 calories per glass. I used my coupon to try the Vanilla variety first. I found it to be very smooth and slightly sweet. It also has a very subtle flavor of almonds that do not overpower the milk flavor that you expect. I also enjoyed it with a cup of coffee in place of my normal flavored creamer and enjoyed the sweetness. The Silk website suggests cooking with it, and also offers recipes using their products. I enjoyed making the strawberry banana smoothie with my Silk Vanilla Pure Almond Milk, after adding all ingredients the almond taste was undetectable.

So, since I really enjoyed trying this great product, the wonderful people at Silk have offered to give one lucky reader of Desperately Seeking Deals the same opportunity. They will be offering one lucky reader a coupon to try either of the Silk Pure Almond products and a Silk logo chic reusable Chico shopping bag to go with.
