Silk New Almond Blends
The internet is full of them! Recipes for those with gluten allergies. Recipes for those with dairy allergies. Recipes for those with nut allergies. Why is there all the attention on these recipes? Because when you develop an allergy, you suddenly realize how many foods you eat contain that ingredient. You are suddenly left in a state of confusion about how you will be able to grocery shop and read labels to assure you are not accidentally consuming a food you thought was free of certain ingredients. Many ingredients have so many names and aliases in the ingredient list, it is like leaning a new lifestyle entirely. The little boy across the street from us had been not gaining weight and having digestive issues. After finally getting a diagnosis, it is determined it was due to an intolerance for dairy and artificial sweeteners like HFCS. His Mom says to me “I spent 90 minutes at the grocery store and came home with only 3 bags of groceries! There is so much to learn and I have to learn the labels!” Food allergies are common in so many households and Silk continues to better its products so that dairy sufferers have choices, flavor and substitutes for many popular recipes that would otherwise call for milk.
I started browsing the Silk website for recipes of theirs I know my family would enjoy and found the Boulder Corn Muffin recipe in which I used Silk AlmondCoconut Blend as a substitute for any dairy and used honey instead of the sugar. As well, I have been using the new Silk Almond blend as coffee creamer. If suddenly I had the need to eliminate dairy from any of our diets, I am so glad Silk would be to my rescue with many new flavors like the one I use above and the Silk Almondmilk Protein & Fiber blend.
