With 33% less calories than skim milk and absolutely no saturated fat whatsoever, Silk Cashewmilk is clearly the better choice. For those worried about their calcium intake, Silk has covered that and then some. Their cashewmilk has 50% more calcium than their dairy counterparts. It has a suggested retail price of a modest $3.49. According to the Silk website, their cashewmilk is “free of dairy, soy, lactose, gluten, casein, egg and MSG.” This makes it the perfect option for every single diet and lifestyle.
Silk has alway been known for there incredible range of vegan-friendly milk substitutes. While the health benefits are a huge necessity, everyone obviously wants something that tastes as great as it feels. It’s so much creamier than skim milk; there is virtually no competition. It has a similar taste to Silk’s Almondmilk, but with a thicker consistency and nuttier flavor. The drink comes in Original and Unsweetened versions. Both of which are equally delicious and fitted to every flavor preference. Chocolate and Vanilla flavors will be released in April and will be available nationwide in the Summer.
Silk never fails to impress but their cashewmilk has taken vegan alternatives to the next level. Drink it by itself, pour it over cereal, or use it in a recipe. Whatever it is you need, cashewmilk is perfect for it. Silk also values the importance of simplicity. The cashewmilk ingredient list has less than ten items, not including the vitamins and minerals. There are no confusing, unknown ingredients. Not to mention the fact that they never use artificial colors or flavors.
As a whole, Silk is an outstanding company. They are active participants in the Non-GMO Project and are very responsible in their production. Not only are you helping your body, you are helping the planet. This time Silk has truly outdone themselves.
