Silk Pure Almond Review & Giveaway


Winners are Cindy &Cheryl!



It doesn’t take much to get from whole, natural almonds to Silk Pure Almond™ milk. Each glass provides an excellent source of natural antioxidants, and as much calcium and vitamin D as dairy milk, with absolutely no cholesterol, saturated fat, dairy or soy. Best of all, a serving of Silk Pure Almond Original almondmilk is only 60 calories, and a delicious glass of Vanilla is just 90.

What makes almondmilk Silk Pure Almond so healthy? For starters, it’s the almonds. Every little nut is a perfectly packaged powerhouse of natural antioxidants and more. In fact, we like to think of almonds as Nature’s Perfect Nutrition – and that’s where our almondmilk begins.

Almonds are recognized by health professionals as a nutritious addition to a healthy diet. A serving of almonds provides an excellent source of vitamin E (a natural antioxidant), and a good source of protein and fiber. In fact, almonds are higher in protein and fiber than any other tree nut. Plus, they're naturally low in saturated fat and cholesterol-free.

About Antioxidants:

We've all heard a lot about the benefits of antioxidants – and Silk Pure Almond™ milk is a great way to get more of these healthy must-haves into your everyday routine.

Antioxidants are beneficial components that occur naturally in many whole foods including nuts, fruits, vegetables and soy. Health and nutrition pros agree that a diet rich in antioxidants can help you look, feel and live your best.

But how, exactly, do antioxidants work? Bear with us for a little bit of science: “Oxidation” is a chemical reaction that accompanies many normal processes in the body. When oxidation occurs, it releases potentially harmful molecules known as “free radicals.” Excessive free radical production is thought to cause “oxidative damage”; a phenomenon that may contribute to aging and a number of chronic health problems including cancer and cardiovascular disease. A growing body of research indicates that consuming foods with antioxidant properties may help combat free radicals and protect against oxidative damage, supporting overall good health. Best of all, foods rich in natural antioxidants – like fruits and veggies and many nuts – tend to be great for you in other ways, too.

Vitamin E is an important antioxidant that has been studied for its role in supporting normal heart and brain function, as well as promoting a healthy complexion. Each serving of Silk Pure Almond provides an impressive 50% of the recommended daily value of this essential nutrient. To make sure your diet includes the full spectrum of beneficial antioxidants, pile on plenty of colorful produce in addition to healthy staples like almondmilk.

Benefits of Almonds:

New to nuts? Not to worry. Almondmilk really can go everywhere:
· Splash almondmilk on your favorite cereal. Good morning, antioxidants!
· Have you tried an almondmilk latte? Prepare to get hooked.
· Whirl up a smoothie with Silk Pure Almond and your favorite fruit. (Throw in a handful of crushed almonds if you’re feeling extra nutty.)
· Almondmilk cooks and bakes to perfection, and can be substituted for milk in many recipes. Discover soups, cakes, muffins and more – with fewer calories than you’d think.
 
My Thoughts - I received 2 coupons to the Almond milk for free. I bought the original and the vanilla.
We first tried the original, it was delicious and sweet. It was thinner than the whole milk we usually drink but that was fine with me. The original almond milk is only 60 calories per serving. All but one gave it an A+, my oldest daughter only thought it was okay. Next we tried the vanilla almond milk. I thought it was a little sweet but this is coming from someone who doesn't eat much sugar. Everyone else LOVED it!!! I did think it was a very nice treat in my decaf coffee.
This is a product I'm going to add to my grocery list. I need to give up dairy (VERY hard for me) because it effects my allergies and this milk is dairy free. I am still going to buy milk because my household drinks A LOT of milk and at $2.99 a half gallon we just can't go all the way yet.

I have yet to try this, but sounds yummy! I visited their site and most of the recipes sound great, but I can't wait to try it making French toast. We love french toast in our house and with the almond milk, it sounds yum! I follow you on twitter, FB, google friend and also MRTM.

I have bought this before. I made my very good friend's baby shower cupcakes with this because she has food allergies. It gave the cupcakes a great taste! And, my boys loved it too! I would love to try Nutty Mocha Latte! That sounds right up my alley!

I follow you on Twitter, Google Friend and FB. I also get the newsletter in my e-mail.

I hope I win! :)
