If you read my blog on a regular basis, then you know that I have been participating in a 6 week health challenge. It has seriously made me feel so good to have cleaned up my diet and eat much healthier things. One new thing I tried during my challenge, is Silk Almond Milk. I am not positive, but I think I might be slightly affected by lactose because whenever I have milk, my stomach hurts (it’s just with milk, weird, I know). The Silk almond milk has been a great alternative, and I really love the thick texture of it in my cereal. It has 50% more calcium than regular milk, which is great! Plus, my stomach doesn’t hurt after I drink it!

 

 

I recently got the chance to try this NEW Silk Almond Coconut Blend, and I like it a lot!  I have loved using it in my cereal or with a banana, plain greek yogurt, and frozen fruit for a super creamy smoothie.  One of my favorite things about Silk milks is that they are low in calories, which really helps when I am counting calories for a health challenge. I am confident that when my challenge is over, I will still be using this Silk milk on a regular basis because it’s just a great, healthy product. I have also tried some new breakfast ideas using almond milk like these overnight oats. They are simple to prep and you can add anything in them.

 

Tropical Overnight Oats

 

You basically take 1/2 cup old fashioned oats, 1/2 cup vanilla greek yogurt, 1 Tbsp Chia seeds, and 2/3 cup Silk Almond Coconut Blend. Then you stir it up, put it in jars and let it refrigerate overnight for 8 hours.

Then in the morning you add fruit and eat! For this particular recipe, I wanted to go tropical with the flavors of coconut from the Silk Almond Coconut Blend, so I added kiwis and fresh pineapple chunks. My husband absolutely loved the combo!

These overnight oats work great as afternoon snacks too, especially if you divide the recipe into two jars, each jar is only 201 calories! (Based off of inputting the recipe into MyFitnessPal.com) It’s always great to have something healthy on hand ready to go!

It took me a couple times to get used to eating cold oats, but they are soft and chewy and filling. I think you will love this recipe! And if you don’t try the recipe, still try this Silk Almond Coconut Blend because it tastes great on my protein packed (Kashi) cereal! I love this milk!

      For sure, you can use Silk Vanilla Almond Milk. The Silk Coconut Milk would be good too! I am just in love with the Silk Almond Coconut Blend right now!

    This idea sounds fabulous!!! I would want to modify it slightly to my tastes/preferences…as we all might…skip the flavored vanilla yogurt (I went plain a long time ago, in my lifestyle change to be fabulous-at-50) and probably use organic or plain milk or rice milk as well, possibly adding some vanilla/other extract and a touch of local honey (if necessary). Each to his/her own! But, it’s a great jumping off point! Thank you, Amber! I love the idea of having breakfast ready to go, upon waking! I love the pics, too.

    Re-read and you should notice that only actual milk affects her, not all dairy (the parentheses where she says…”it’s just with milk, weird, I know”)?

    What is with taking the offering of a recipe and turning it into a personal attack against her (and her personal preferences)? You can impart alternative information, without berating or attacking. Some people seem to have to tear down others, to feel better about themselves. How sad, that we live in such as world as this. I fear for us, as a society. My 20 or so great-nieces&nephews are likely going to find themselves in a terrible mess…maybe even before I die. I just don’t see a very promising future when constant internet bullying…as well as old-fashioned bullying, gun & drug violence, plus violent riots & protests…are becoming the daily norm.

    Agreed, grow/prepare your own food…if you can… Local farmers markets are great, if you have them in your area. It’s better for our health, and the local economy. Dairy is a slightly tougher issue. Organic, if those other options are unavailable. (I hope it posts THIS time! ‘Puter problems…oops)
