Silk Helped Me “Bloom” When I Was Dairy-Free

When I first went dairy-free to help with digestive issues, it was a major shift.

No more butter. No more cheese. No more cream or ice cream, and no more milk for baking, smoothies, or even in my gluten-free cereal.

Obviously, over time, I managed. There are some awesome substitutions you can do at home (I even figured out how to make my own “cream” of mushroom soup and cheese alternatives to make a dairy-free broccoli “cheese” casserole for Thanksgiving one year!), but sometimes, store-bought products can really make things simpler. After all, there is only so much you can fit into your day.

Out of all of the brands of almond milk, Silk’s unsweetened Almondmilk was my favorite. It was creamier than some others, and it worked well for everything from mashed potatoes to smoothies.

Just a few examples:

I could easily swap out regular milk for Silk’s Almondmilk in this carrot cake cupcake recipe.

I used almond milk in this healthy Chocolate Protein “Frosty”, which made for a simple dairy-free treat.

Almond milk made this dairy-free sweet corn ice cream delicious!

In fact, almond milk can be substituted in any recipe for regular milk. It works beautifully. (Just don’t accidentally use vanilla Silk Almondmilk for a savory recipe – it doesn’t exactly taste that great. Not that I would know or anything. *cough cough*)

Ultimately, products like Silk offered help, especially when I was first dairy-free and felt overwhelmed with changes I needed to make. Part of their “Bloom” campaign asks how Silk helped me “bloom” – I’d have to say it helped me flourish in cooking and baking even when I had to eat dairy-free. It was easy to make that switch to using their Almondmilk for all sorts of things. And now, while I don’t eat strictly dairy-free, I still make dairy-free desserts for family members that cannot eat dairy, and this product makes it convenient.
