Silk Pure Almond Review

I've posted previously about my family trying to go organic. Our first foods were butter and milk. For milk I decided to go with almond milk. There are two reasons for this. First is we don't like soy milk. Second, was taste and I have tried almond milk before and felt the taste was decidedly better. So, I actually chose the cheapest at our grocers, which happened to be Silk Pure Almond.
I love this stuff! My husband loves it, my 5 yr old loves it and apparently so does her cat, Possum.
We have tried it as drinking milk and cooking milk. As for drinking milk, it is thicker than regular milk but not in an unpleasant way. It also tastes like almonds!! Not overpowering but just right. It also isn't as sweet as some almond milks, which I like. I guess I should note we bought the original. It also comes sweetened and unsweetened. For cooking with, it has been great so far. We have had it in pancakemix, cereal, oatmeal, and even macaroni and cheese. There is no almond taste to your food. It taste just like it should. I was impressed with the mac and cheese as I expected to taste almond. Oh and we made cookies and they were delicious. For some foods like oatmeal and pancakes, I actually think the thickness of the almond milk is a benefit. It makes the pancakes lighter and the oatmeal creamier.
Overall, I give it an A. The price is right, and the taste is awesome. This will be our family's milk from now own.


  1. Yummy, yummy! We love almond milk and you are right it plays well in every recipe I've ever tried it in! :)

  2. Sounds good! We havent made the milk leap yet; maybe once we are out of the WIC years. Thanks for the post!

  3. Just out of curiosity why not get organic cows milk? I'm lactose intolerant and have tried soy (my body doesn't like it either!). I just picked up some almond milk yesterday, just to try it. I'm disappointed that the protein count isn't higher and that in the brand I chose there is so much sugar. Otherwise, I like the taste :)
    Glad your experience with this particular brand of almond milk has been good. Perhaps I'll keep looking ;)

  4. We love almond milk around here. We don't use it often, as we do prefer grass-fed cow milk. But the Almond milk is a good substitute when we can't get/afford the grass-fed milk. I have to admit, I really like the chocolate flavored...lol!
