When I decided to switch to a plant-based lifestyle, one thing I definitely remember is the adjustment period. My mother practically raised us vegetarian, so I imagine the transition wasn't as challenging for me as it was for others. For better or for worse, many of those healthy habits flew out the window when I left the nest. It’d be at least another 10 years before I found my way back to greener pastures.
While many foods stick the landing perfectly fine, meats and dairy have always had more shaky dismounts. Consistency and taste have persisted as caveats in these experiments. Thankfully, in recent years there have been major strides made. And now, a new challenger has entered the non-dairy octagon.
Popular brand Silk has released their latest creation, Nextmilk. This latest non-dairy innovation is made using creamy oatmilk and a plant-based blend featuring soy and coconuts, includes six key nutrients found in dairy, and offers Whole Fat and Reduced Fat options. I had the opportunity to taste the new offering and can honestly say it’s really good. It comes as no surprise that the flavor is more balanced than most milk alternatives I’ve tried. In my experience, Silk always does a great job at capturing full flavor profiles in their products.
It should go without saying that Silk Nextmilk is lactose-free. It’s also Non-GMO Project Verified and has 30% less calories than dairy milk. If you’re looking to reduce your amount of dairy intake, but haven’t found a suitable alternative, stop by your local grocery store and try out the new Silk Nextmilk.
