After discovering that the toddler and I are intolerant to dairy, we made the switch to non-dairy milks and haven't looked back! I like to change it up with a variety, but some of our favorites are Silk Almond Milk Protein+Fiber, and Silk Almond Coconut Blend. They each have a nice mild flavor and creamy texture so I can just chug a glass, like I used to with cow milk! There are many benefits of almond milk, including a healthy mix of protein and vitamins (Silk almond milk has 50% more calcium than regular milk!) You can use it as you would regular milk in recipes and smoothies... So cooking with almond milk is... well... a piece of cake! (or brownies, in my case... Yum!)

Safeway carries both of these exciting new varieties of Silk Almond Milk in their dairy case. It is so nice that non-dairy milks are becoming more mainstream and readily available at "regular" stores!

My toddler loves her non-dairy milk. Loooooves it. She is always asking for "Mil-tuh! Mo-ah mil-tuh!" (Milk! More milk!) She usually goes through two sippy cups at bedtime alone! So I love finding healthy options like Silk brand without a ton of junky additives. And all their products are verified non-GMO!

I've found that options like Silk non-dairy milks are a great alternative to juice for after-school thirst. Satisfies the tummy plus a touch of sweetness, but filled with healthy nutrients instead of empty sugars like juice (and possible artificial colors and flavors! Yuck!)

I can't wait to incorporate these almond milks into our Summer routine! What better way to cool down on a hot day, or replenish fluids and nutrients after a hard afternoon of playing than a nice cool glass of Silk Almond Coconut Blend or Silk Almond Milk Protein+Fiber? And what a great option to pack in some water bottles for a picnic in the park or a car trip to Nana's! 

There are no artificial flavors in any of the Silk products, which means no petroleum-derived artificial Vanillin (which is used in most everything for a "vanilla" flavor!) And none of the Silk almond milks contain any of the inflammatory ingredient carrageenan, so I can feel doubly safe letting my toddler drink up! That little nut can pack away half a carton a day, easily!
