A few days ago my family and I started the “Least Challenging Challenge” by the producers of Silk non-dairy products. The challenge was to switch from regular milk, and in the case of my oldest daughter switch from her normal soy milk, to Silk Light Vanilla and Silk Pure Almond Vanilla milks. I was already concerned with the transition, and sure enough on the first day the kids were upset with me. My three year old son, Eli, actually cried. He loves eating cereal most mornings and he did not appreciate me changing products even though we were out of regular milk. He decided instead not to eat his breakfast at all. My older daughters switched over with very little fuss. Abigail is used to drinking Silk Very Vanilla Soy milk so she didn’t mind very much switching over to a lighter version. My other daughter, Mimi, mentioned how she thought the Silk Light Vanilla Soy milk wasn’t as sweet as her sister’s milk, and that she really liked the Silk Pure Almond Vanilla milk. Just for fun I also purchased the Silk Dark Chocolate Almond milk for dinner, which is absolutely divine.
My preference so far has been the Silk Pure Almond Vanilla milk. It is so good and has a smooth taste. For me it has been a treat, especially in my morning lattes and coffee. This morning breakfast was non-eventful, which is a good thing. Both daughters ate their morning cereals with Silk Light Vanilla Soy and Eli was content with the Silk Pure Almond Vanilla milk. My husband and I have also been enjoying the almond milk with our morning coffee and cereal. I appreciate the fact that each cup of the vanilla almond milk I’m drinking is only 90 calories each serving and contains 50% more calcium than the regular milk I’m used to drinking daily. I know women need lots of calcium for the health of their bones.
My next post I’ll share with you how the Least Challenging Challenge went along with my final insights!
