This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Silk. All opinions are 100% mine.
**I was compensated for writing my honest opinion and sharing information about Silk® Original Cashewmilk. This is my 100% honest opinion, and I would never write about something I haven't tried.

Being lactose intolerant I'm always looking for good (affordable) dairy substitutes. And now that we're on this paleo kick, dairy is completely out of the question. Enter Silk Cashewmilk. I tried the Silk® Unsweetened Cashewmilk and I’m obsessed- I actually chugged 2 full glasses which is fine because there are only 25 calories per serving It's creamy like fatty milk and also mixes well with hot drinks (see below). But first- what's the deal with cashew milk / why cashew milk?
Silk® Original Cashewmilk is creamier than skim milk with 25% fewer calories* and no saturated fat! This makes it ideal for calorie counters with just 25 calories per serving and 2 grams of fat per cup.
Some of the benefits of New Silk® Original Cashewmilk versus regular milk include:
·       No saturated fat
·       50% more calcium than dairy milk*
·       Lactose-free (helloooo yes!)
·       Dairy-free
·       Cholesterol-free
·       No artificial colors, flavors or preservatives
·       No high-fructose corn syrup
·       Plant-based
I’ve been a big fan of Silk® since I figured out dairy is what makes me so sick- to learn more about this great company and its products you can go to I’m super pumped about the texture this will add to my overnight oats.
Annnnd since it is suddenly winter here in DC, I tried out a little Cashew Milk Mocha Drink:

Paleo Friendly Hot Mocha:
  • 1 cup black coffee
  • 1/4 cup Silk Cashew Milk
  • 2 Tablespoon Hershey's Cocoa (100% Cacao)
  • 2 Tablespoons Pure Agave Nectar (or Honey or Maple Syrup)
  • 2 drops vanilla extract
