Silk's Pure Almond Iced Cocoa Mocha and a Giveaway


Mr.Healthnut helping himself a glass of mighty almond goodness.

A nutritious addition in our diet,velvety smooth ,light and incredibly yum,Silk's new Pure Almond Milk has taken an honorable space in our refrigerator,since introduced to me by the kind folks at Silk.

Topping in the list of Nature's best foods,almonds are attributed as a nut with most fiber,protein and load of essential anti oxidant(Vitamin E).Naturally low in fat and free of cholesterol,the almonds help in lowering bad cholesterol and raising the good cholesterol.Silk Pure Almond™ almond milk is an excellent way to get more of these healthy almonds into your everyday routine.The calorie smart Silk's Pure Almond Milk is just 60 calories for a serving of Original flavor, and 90 for a glass of Vanilla.One can enjoy the almond milk in all the recipes were milk is used.I prefer it chilled from fridge,as is or in bowl of cereal or milk shakes.


Hello Summer! the heat is starting to pick its momentum and the body desires chilled drinks more than ever.The cool refreshing anti-oxidant rich Iced Cocoa Mocha has the light flavor of Silk's vanilla Almond milk intensified with cocoa powder and coffee,a fantastic shake,you'd want to sip every single hot summer's day.

My favorite anti-oxidant rich food is probably cranberries. Nothing beats a homemade cranberry sauce and brie sandwich!

Your Almond drink looks yummy, but i have never heard of this brand, is this from US.

Very tempting picture! have never tried almond milk but planning to add it to my list now..

fav antioxidant food - Guava.. used to be my fav fruit along with mango and used to eat a lot of these back in India. Didnt know that these were high in antioxidants until recently..

HannaIsn't said...

I've been an Almond Breeze and Pacific customer, but I've never tried Silk's almond milk. Have you compared the brands for nutrition and/or cost?
I'd like to try it just for taste, really.

I love dried apricots, chili peppers, ginger, cinnamon, grapefruit, kale, spinach... I guess most of the foods I really like are antioxidant rich. Funny! Is sweet potato on the list, too? Maybe grapefruit is the top of the list lately for me.

doggybloggy said...

this sounds good to me - I have been loving silks new almond milk lately and would love to enjoy some more!

Becca said...

Ooh - I love Almond milk, but haven't had it in years! We are loyal Silk Soymilk drinkers, but haven't tried Almond - so here's two fingers crossed!

My FAVORITE Anti-oxidant food is Cacao Beans (a new discovery in our home), bitter, crumbly, but with lovely overtones of that rich chocolate taste that I love! Also, blueberries and garlic - though NOT together, thanks. ;)

Pavithra said...

I too love this yasmeen.. its soooooooo tasty. My fridge will be filled up with either the soy or almond milk.

Sukanya Ramkumar said...

Definitely this is a luxurious drink. Looks so cool. YUM!

Mel said...

Blueberries!!! Mmmmm.

xhool said...

For those that are in season right now--apricots and the berries!! Especially home grown ones--who can resist!
