It is Almond Milk.
So I gave it a try and I am hooked. I like drinking the milk first thing in the morning. I actually pour it into a Solo cup and take it for my drive like most people do with coffee. I find that the Almond milk keeps me full for about 2 hours at work. So the almond milk gets me through the morning rush to the 10:30/11am mark. Or my glass of almond milk sustains me through a nice 4-6 miles walk (for longer walks I find I need more intake otherwise I get tried faster and lose traction so I pair with a 100 calorie bar or fruit). I also find that the milk helps fill my craving for cheese (I was a rat in a previous life) even though it has no dairy.
So here is my break down of flavors and brands
I love love love Silk's Pure almond Dark
Chocolate. It is like chocolate milk any a bit more decadent. I find the dark chocolate is great when I am craving chocolate or something sweet a terrible like cake or doughnuts or OMG now I want a cupcake. Anywho, this great to help with the cravings
The original Silk flavor which tastes the most like milk out of the bunch is good not a strong flavor to perfect in a smoothie or paired with snack.
However, I really like the vanilla flavor because it was a bit sweeter without being too sweet, plus creamier. So, the vanilla flavor is perfect on it's own.
The unsweetened is not for me. I find the flavor bitter and had to add fruit or splenda syrups to make them drinkable. This does not mean the flavor is terrible, I did finish off the cartoon and a bottle of chocolate sugar-free syrup, but not my favorite. Maybe this flavor grow on you with time. I just would rather not force myself and go straight to the
I find the Almond breeze brand to be stronger in almond flavor, less creamy and a little grainier. It is still good but I prefer the Silk brand in all the flavors. Though, I have not tried the chocolate flavor yet.
I have not tried the generic Publix brand or So Delicious Almond milks yet, but when I do I promise to update. For those of you wanting to try out my latest obsession, you can sign up for Silk coupons here.
