I have a really hard time getting my boys to eat vegetables, so I've been trying to find some healthy things to add to their diets.
When shopping for groceries, I decided to try Silk PureAlmond. To my surprise, it is really good. I bought the unsweetened, but they have vanilla and a couple other flavors as well.
First I poured some in my Fiber One Honey Clusters cereal. It was really good. The honey and almond flavors went well together.
Next, I tried some in a fruit smoothie. My boys drank it up and loved it. I added a banana, an orange, some ice and orange juice. Smoothies are a great treat and even better with the extra nutrients!
Today I tried to make some Jello Instant Pudding with the almond milk. It tasted great, but was a little liquidy. My boys drank it and loved it as well. I think next time I will try half milk and half almond milk so that it will thicken up a little bit more.
Tonight I tried to make chocolate almond milk. It was pretty good, but I added a little regular milk as well.
I am so happy that I finally tried this and will be trying the different flavors soon. 1 serving = 1 cup and only has 35 calories!
