Silk PureAlmond Unsweetened AlmondMilk

There once was a time when Silk brand was synonymous with "SoyMilk" but not anymore. A while back, I reviewed Silk PureCoconut Original CoconutMilk Review and now it's time to look at one of their "AlmondMilk" products - Silk Vanilla PureAlmond Unsweetened AlmondMilk.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1 cup (240 mL)
Calories: 30
Total Fat: 2.5 grams, 4%
Saturated Fat: 0%
Sodium: 150 mg, 6%
Carbohydrates: 1 gram

So, let's get this out of the way. On it's own, Silk Vanilla PureAlmond Unsweetened AlmondMilk doesn't have much flavor. It's almost like water but with a slightly beany after-taste ... barely noticeable. Also, I diddn't really detect much of any almond flavor, but then again - I didn't chug a whole lot of it. What I did do, was add it to my breakfast cereal. That's the main way I use these dairy alternatives.

Paired with a bowl of Kashi Heart to Heart Warm Cinnamon Oat Cereal (Review), it took on the flavor of the cinnamony goodness. I think that's the best thing about Silk Vanilla PureAlmond Unsweetened AlmondMilk - it's more like a vehicle that's a little bland on it's own, but perfect for letting the flavors of other components come through.

In addition to being Non-GMO project verified, Silk Vanilla PureAlmond Unsweetened AlmondMilk is dairy free, lactose-free and soy-free. Each 1 cup serving of provides only 30 calories from 2.5 grams of total fat, 1 gram of fiber and 1 gram of protein. The ingredients in this "all natural almondmilk" include filtered water, almonds, calcium carbonate, sea salt, natural flavor, locust bean gum, sunflower lecithin, gellan gum, vitamin E acetate, Zing Gluconate, vitamin A palmitate, riboflavin (B2), vitamin B12, vitamin D2. There is 45% of the daily value for calcium, along with 25% for vitamon D, Riboflavin, 50% for vitamin E and B12 - all vitamins are added.

Pay attention to the fact that this will stay fresh in the refrigerator for only 7-10 days after opening. I have a bad habit of keeping mine around for much longer.
