-closed- Silk for Milk Challenge Giveaway and Review Day 1: Silk Cereal

Perhaps you've noticed that Silk has a new campaign called Silk for Milk 10-Day Challenge. Simply replace your milk with Silk! Silk comes in Silk Pure Coconut, Silk Soymilk and Silk Pure Almond with 17 varieties to choose from. Since Silk's products are completely cholesterol-free, it's perfect for baking, cooking and drinking!
How would you start your Silk for Milk 10-Day Challenge?

I was offered to participate in a mini challenge where we'd use Silk instead of milk for a couple days. Easy, I say...I've reviewed Silk products before so we know that we already love them! I was sent a coupon to go pick out a half gallon of Silk, and after thinking about what recipes I'd like to try it in, I decided on the Silk Pure Almond Vanilla.

Each glass of Silk Pure Almond 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. A serving of Silk Pure Almond Original almondmilk is only 60 calories, and a delicious glass of Vanilla is just 90.
I prefer to add it to my cooking and baking rather than just drinking a glass, the vanilla flavor makes it richer, so it's great on cereal or in a coffee instead of creamer and many more of your favorite recipes!

Here are some Silk cooking & baking tips:
-In general, you can substitute almondmilk for dairy milk, cup for cup.
-Silk Pure Almond Original almondmilk works well in both savory and sweet dishes.
-Silk Pure Almond Vanilla almondmilk has a touch of extra sweetness and is suitable for desserts, smoothies and breakfast treats.

For my first mini challenge, instead of regular dairy milk, this morning we added Silk Pure Almond to our cold cereal. The almondmilk vanilla flavor adds a little sweetness that we like. Tune in tomorrow to see how else we've used Silk Pure Almond and for more baking & cooking tips!

I'm a follower of your blog already. As far as the 10 day challenge, we've already given up dairy. Our normal day to day consists of almond, soy, coconut, or rice milk. The Silk Almond is one of our favorites.

My kids already like soy milk, I'd like for them to try the Almond so I'm up for the 10 day challenge. We will switch out the milk for almond milk when the kids drink it with their lunch and dinner.
