I Love Silk

Hiya eaters!

It’s Friday! Friday! Something something something Friday!

Yeah, I’m not really up on pop culture. (Speaking of which, where the hell do people find all this new pop culture? Are there things I’m not reading?) And I do realize that song is so last year, but until it’s featured on an episode of VH1’s “I Heart The (decade)” I still consider it pop culture.

But that’s enough of that weird rant.

Did you know that I don’t really have much product/brand loyalty?

With the exception of a few things (tampons, face washes, hand creams, and coffee creamer, to name a few) I flip flop all over the place.

Store brand. Name brand. Whatever’s on sale. My favorite that is only available at one store so I buy it when I’m there, but am generally to lazy to go all the way there just to buy one thing. The things I keep buying because I remember buying them before and thinking that I liked them only to find out that I don’t after it’s too late.

You know the drill.

But I am here to declare that after years of dabbling in non-dairy milks — soy, almond, coconut, rice, and hemp — and all the brands that make them — Eden Soy, Pacific, Silk, So Delicious, West Soy, and store brands — I finally found the brand that I am loyal to.

And that lucky winner of my undying loyalty is…Silk!

Silk was one of the first soymilks I ever bought when I was first testing the non-dairy waters. And honestly, I probably gravitated towards them because when writing my grocery list I could shorten “soymilk” to “silk” and it made sense.

But now after having tried quite a few soymilks, I can say that theirs is pretty much top notch. It’s smooth and doesn’t have that weird taste or wateriness that a lot have (cough cough Harris Teeter brand cough). silk pure almond2

Lately I’ve been gravitating away from soymilk and luckily, Silk’s almond milk is pretty tasty, too. (Ya know, because I eat almonds and almond butter, and cook with almond flour, so I really need more almonds in my life.)

But seriously, Silk’s almond milk is awesome. I always preferred almond milk to soymilk because it seemed to have a richer mouth feel and Silk’s almond milk doesn’t disappoint.silk pure almond1

At less than 1 g of carbs per serving it’s perfect to add a bit of creaminess to my whey protein (while I wait for the egg protein I order and MUCH prefer to come in). AND they even have a dark chocolate flavor, which I definitely need to find a recipe or a reason so I can justify buying a carton.

So there you have it: I love Silk.

And luckily, I’m in pretty good company because a lot of my fellow Fitfluential Ambassadors love Silk, too. We love it so much that Silk has even rounded up a bunch of bloggers to create 30 recipes for their FB page using their unsweetened almond milk, which has 30 calories a serving. (Ehh ehh, you see what they’re doing there? That’s clever.)

And, hint hint, if you’re looking for an excuse to buy a carton of Silk’s dark chocolate almond milk there’s a recipe on there for a chocolate cherry smoothie that I bet you could substitute it in for. (There’s also a coupon for $1 off a carton on there, too!)

Yup, that sounds like a good enough reason to me.

Your turn, eaters:

What kind of milk, dairy or otherwise, are you partial to?

How much brand loyalty do you have?

Later eaters!

  1. I love Silk Almond Milk! My fiancé is obsessed with the dark chocolate variety and I rarely get any before he drinks it all! I’ve tried varieties from Blue Diamond, etc. but I still like Silk the best!
