Like most people these days, I’m trying to eat healthier and smarter. Silk products help me do just that, especially my favorite product of theirs unsweetened almond milk (I buy both their original and vanilla). It is low in calories, high in calcium, non-dairy and can be readily sweetened with stevia or other natural sweeteners when I choose. It doesn’t weigh me down like milk products, nor does it coat my palette like milk can, yet it still satisfies my need for creaminess in beverages, cereal and recipes. I also love that Silk products are GMO free (those not clearly labeled with the certification, are currently going through the process for approval).
To really show how Silk can help you bloom, I’ve made a vegan Green Tea Chia Smoothie for you today. It teams Silk with other health-minded ingredients to create a low calorie energy boosting beverage that will satisfy. It is sweetened only with stevia and the natural sugars present in a banana. It boasts a whopping 10 grams of fiber in a serving, and the matcha powder green tea will provide an energy and metabolism boost. The recipe can also be made as a pudding, by simply boosting the quantity of chia seeds to 2 tbs and leaving to sit in refrigerator for a couple hours.
