When my son was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease that impacts his digestive system we started examining the food that he eats. One thing I’ve learned is that dairy is sometimes a problem for people with IBD, so it was one of the first things we eliminated. While he didn’t see any change in his digestive health from the change, we found some milk substitutes that we really enjoyed, and I’ve recently discovered another dairy substitute that I think I like even more than the rest: Silk Creamy Cashew.
Cashews have been a preferred snack of mine for many years so it was a logical step to try this new Silk product. Even though I love cashews, I was surprised at how much I enjoy Silk Creamy Cashew. It says “creamy” right in the name and that is the best description for it. This isn’t watery like some milk substitutes and the flavour is very subtle. I have never been a milk drinker and that applied to all substitutes as well, but I have actually drank a couple of glasses of this and really enjoyed it. It is great on cereal and in coffee too and it has fewer calories than skim milk. That is a huge selling point for me! It is also a great source of calcium and Vitamin D, which is important for everyone but I am more conscious of that now that I am in my forties.
The Silk website showcases some delicious looking recipes that are made using Silk Creamy Cashew. The Silk Egg Nog will definitely be on my holiday recipe list and I’m intrigued by the Creamy Cashew Mashed Potatoes. I can think of many cookies and squares that would benefit from the addition of Silk Creamy Cashew! Check the Silk Facebook page more inspiration.
Silk Creamy Cashew is only available in Canada and you can look for it on the product locator.
