Chocolate for breakfast!!! Chocolate for snack!! Chocolate for all the time.
One day I came home from a run, and I threw all of my stuff into the blender to make a huge, cold smoothie. Then, on a whim I threw in some chocolate chips. Now I can’t make a smoothie without chocolate chips. It’s kind of a problem. Except it’s not, because it’s delicious.
I have to admit, when I first found out about the new Silk Dairy-Free Yogurt Alternative, I was totally skeptical. I mean, I loooove my Silk, and buy their products all the time, but I am a Greek yogurt girl at heart, and I wasn’t sure how this could possibly compare. While I have to admit that I would still consider myself a Greek yogurt girl, this new dairy-free yogurt alternative was actually great! It didn’t taste fake, and it was much thicker than I had expected.
I’m not typically a fan of things that aren’t what you want them to be. I don’t do fake meat, and I would rather not eat cheese than eat anything resembling fake cheese (unless it’s like a creamy nut based cheese sauce–that’s an other story, and a totally different form of delicious!), but that’s what I love about this new product–it’s not trying to be yogurt. It’s an alternative. It contains 6 grams of plant-based protein, and it has all the creamy, deliciousness you’re looking for. It is also made with real fruit, along with being dairy-free, cholesterol-free, gluten-free, carrageenan-free, vegetarian, healthy, and totally delicious. That’s a lot of info. Here’s what you really need to know: It’s legit.
I love making smoothies, and this is the first time I’ve been able to make one that my vegan friends can enjoy too! I’m so grateful that Silk put this awesome Dairy-Free Yogurt Alternative on the market!
