Silk Light Vanilla SoyMilk Review

Silk Light Vanilla SoyMilkAfter a positive experience with Silk Light Original Soymilk, I decided to try Silk Light Vanilla Soymilk too. I prefer Vanilla-flavored non-dairy beverages for straight consumption, so I thought I would probably prefer this to the original. I saw a 1/2 gallon carton for $2.99 on sale, which wasn't bad at all.

I poured myself a little bit of this milk and drank it straight. I have to admit, although I was previously on the fence about Silk, this stuff was great. The vanilla flavor was a really nice touch, not at all overpowering. It was delicious by itself, and mixed with cereal, which I tried later. I even tried making pudding out of this and found it was delicious.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1 cup
Calories: 80
Total Fat: 2 grams, 3%
Saturated Fat: 0%
Sodium: 95 mg, 4%
Carbohydrates: 10 grams
Fiber: 1 gram, 4%
Sugar: 7 grams
Protein: 6 grams

Nutritionally, this is pretty similar to regular skim milk (although it's flavored). Each 1 cup serving provides 80 calories, 2 grams of fat, 4% of the daily value for sodium, 1 gram of fiber, 7 grams of sugar, 6 grams of protein. There is also a host of vitamins and minerals including 50% of the daily value for vitamin B12 and 30% for calcium, vitamin D, and riboflavin.

The ingredients in Silk Light Vanilla Soymilk include, all natural soymilk (Filtered Water, Soy Flour), All Natural Evaporated Cane Juice, Calcium Carbonate, Natural Vanilla Flavor, Sea Salt, Carrageenan, Vitamin A Palmitate, Vitamin D2, Riboflavin (B2), Vitamin B12.

I will probably buy Vanilla flavor Silk soymilk over the Original - it's worth the 10 extra calories.

There are quite a few "dairy alternative" beverages out there. We've reviewed, various soymilks already mentioned, plus Blue Diamond Almond Milk, but don't forget about So Delicious Coconut Milk. Between all those, anyone who can't (or don't want to) drink cow's milk still have some delicious choices.
