A few weeks ago, I partnered with Silk to review their new product, Silk Dairy-Free Yogurt Alternative. I know I have a wide audience of people who are lactose-intolerant and I wanted to offer an unbiased opinion on a product that could satisfy that craving for a convenient and portable snack option for kids and adults.
With the start of a New Year, many of us are making some commitments to taking care of ourselves by utilizing some fitness and activity goals. Part of those goals usually involve incorporating some healthy nutrition habits into our new active lifestyles. For many of us, dairy-based products are not always best. On many mornings, I loved making a higher protein-based smoothie as a post-workout meal. With a great dairy-free alternative, making a quick and nutritious smoothie is a couple of minutes away.
What I Liked about Silk Dairy-Free Yogurt Alternative:
- Flavor: This really surprised me. I’m not a huge fan of soy-based products so I was a little skeptical. However, I devoured the Black Cherry. The Tropical Pineapple is perfect for making smoothies or non-dairy ice cream. The flavors I tried are great.
- Texture: You would have a very hard time convincing me this is a dairy-free product. Not only did it taste like yogurt, it had the creamy texture of full-fat yogurt. This was not some watered-down bland yogurt alternative. The flavor and texture really surprised me.
- Real fruit: There were small bits of real fruit and that worked great with the texture. I’m not a fan of big slimy pieces of fruit in a smooth-textured product.
- No chemical-tasting colors or flavors. I tasted black cherries and tropical pineapple which is all I wanted to taste!
- 6g of dairy-free protein
Good source of calcium and vitamin D
Gluten-free and Carrageenan-free
Peach & Mango
What I wish I could change:
- I would LOVE to see this as an almond or coconut milk-based yogurt alternative. Maybe Silk can test that possibility in the future.
