We took things easy today. I didn’t quite get a full day of recovery yesterday since I had to teach a few classes, so another really easy resting day was needed.
I won’t bore you with our daily family shenanigans just yet as I’ve been going on and on about my weekend extravaganza for like three days now. Ha.
So, today well just talk about my favorite non dairy milk product.
Obviously you know that I’m obsessed with Silk Unsweetened Vanilla Almondmilk.
You also might know that I’m very happy it is now sold at Costco.
Right? I know, I hope your Costco has it also. Ha ha.
Silk has been focusing lately on how it can help people “bloom”. Pretty fitting since spring is so close.
When I think of “blooming” I think of becoming your best self. Being comfortable in your own skin and taking care of yourself the best that you can. It means different things to different people I’m sure.
I do have to say that Silk Almondmilk has helped me in many ways. When I first started trying to avoid most dairy products I really didn’t think I was going to be able to do it and that it was going to be the hardest thing ever.
Well, it really wasn’t. There are so many other delicious, non dairy options out there these days.
Speaking of, there are a lot of other fabulous Silk products.
You can find all of nutritional information on them here on their website.
And, I have yet to find this actual AlmondCoconut Blend at a store, but I can’t wait to get my hands on it.
Have you seen it anywhere yet? I really have to find it like soon.
For the past couple of years Unsweetened Vanilla Almondmilk has been my product of choice.
And yes, last year I even did a video on it with one of my recipes and lately I’ve been using it to make anything and everything like non dairy spaghetti squash mac and cheese, unsweetened paleo “frosting”
and even my new favorite protein almondmilk ice cream which has been going down a little like this quite frequently lately.
Dang, I even want that right now, but I’m too tired and can’t get up off the couch at the moment. Ha.
Last week I thought I’d get really creative and make a paleo version of plantain French toast.
It came out pretty darn tasty if I do say so myself.
I’ll give you the recipe here just in case you might want to “bloom” and try it. He he.
Silk STUFT Plantain French Toast Bake
(gluten free and paleo)
1 plantain, sliced
1 egg (or 2 egg whites)
1/4 cup Silk Unsweetened Vanilla Almondmilk (or other product of choice if you aren’t looking for a paleo version)
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
pinch of salt
cinnamon to taste
optional sweetener (stevia, honey, etc.)- I did not use any sweetener as I thought the plantain itself gave it just the right amount of sweetness
coconut oil (to grease baking dish)
Mix together everything except the sliced plantain in a small dish.
Add plantain slices and stir to make sure they absorb some of the liquid.
Pour into greased oven safe dish.
Bake in oven at 375 for 25 minutes.
Transfer to a plate, add some toppings of choice if you want to get crazy (maple syrup or nut butter) and enjoy.
If plantain French toast isn’t really your thing, you can always just try subbing in Silk for your favorite recipe.
I have to admit, one of my favorite things is that a full eight ounce serving of the unsweetened almondmilk has 35 calories. That’s just silly. Talk about being able to make a ginormous good for you mocha or dish of homemade almondmilk ice cream. Not to mention the taste is darn good.
