Silk Pure Almond milk review and giveaway


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 almond milk 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 almond milk.
When it comes to maintaining a healthy weight, every little calorie counts. That’s why Silk Pure Almond™ almond milk has a very special place in a lighter lifestyle. At just 60 calories for a serving of our Original flavor, and 90 for a glass of Vanilla, it's a calorie-smart choice that’s easy to love.

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.

My thoughts: From reading the above in above information you know almond milk is good for you. But how does it taste. My adult children have been fans of almond milk for years. I have wanted to try it but the local store did not carry it. So I have been drinking vanilla silk soy milk ( which I like) . Then a few months ago our local store started selling Silk almond milk and I have been drinking it regularly. I like the vanilla silk almond milk it is sweeter than the regular almond milk so it is good for what I use it for. I use it in my hot and cold coffee drinks and my smoothies. I bought the regular almond milk one time and did not like it has much it did not give my drinks enough flavor. When I use soy milk I prefer it in vanilla also. So if you drink soy milk and want to try almond milk I recommend trying the almond milk in the same flavor that you buy the soy milk.

You are probably wondering why there is a picture of a chicobag. Well one lucky winner is going to win a Silk Pure Almond branded chicobag. Now I just got to tell you I have several chicobags and I love them. I hook them on my purse so that I always have a reusable bag with me. I have had mine now for several years and they are holding up well.
So now on to the giveaway one winner will receive a coupon for a half gallon of Silk Pure Almond milk and a chicobag, the other winner will receive a coupon for a half gallon of the Silk Pure Almond milk
Giveaway is open to US residents 
Giveaway will end on July 16.
Winners will be picked using a random org. 
For your first entry go to Silk Pure Almond and tell me what store you can buy it at.
For a second entry follow my blog
 
I was contacted directly by Silk who asked me to participate in the review and giveaway. I was given two coupons for silk almond milk in exchange for posting my honest opinion of the product.
