I must admit that I have always considered well-meant products which are lactose-free to be the dairy option for people who couldn't drink milk or eat milk-related things.  Imagine my surprise then to find that, even though I can pretty much drink anything I want, I really love ***Silk Pure Almond Milk*** manufactured by WhiteWave Foods of Broomfield, CO.  This isn't a **milk** at all, in the truest sense of the word but rather an artful combination of filtered water, almonds, all natural evaporated cane juice, Calcium Carbonate, sea salt, Dipotassium Phosphate, Locust Bean Gum, Gellan Gum, Sunflower Lecithin, Natural Vitamin E, Vitamin A Palmitate, and Vitamin D2.

***Silk Pure Almond Milk*** looks and tastes like milk.  It isn't too thick or sweet, as I had feared it would be.  There is no gooey element here or aftertaste.  It is really a lovely beverage even for those of us who have no intention of giving up regular milk or dairy foods.  ***Silk Pure Almond Milk*** is delicious and good for us too.

**STATS:**

An 8-oz. cup of ***Silk Pure Almond Milk*** is considered to be a single serving which contains 60 calories with 25 calories from fat.  There are 2.5 grams Total Fat, zero each Saturated and Trans Fats, .5 gram Polyunsaturated Fat, 1.5 gram Monounsaturated Fat, zero Cholesterol, 150 mg. Sodium, 150 mg. Potassium, 8 grams Total Carbs, 1 gram Dietary Fiber, 7 grams Sugars, and 1 gram Protein.  Check this out:  50% (D.V.) Vitamin E, 30% Calcium, 25% Vitamin D, 10% Vitamin A, 6% each Phosphorus and Manganese, 4% each Iron and Magnesium, and 2% each Riboflavin, Zinc, and Copper.

**TASTE TIP:**

***Silk Pure Almond Milk*** is delicious just chilled icy cold and poured into a glass but the great taste is really enhanced by the addition of a **teensy** bit of sugar mixed in well, and rendered extra special if it is poured into a mug and heated for just a few seconds in the microwave.  (Just until it is warm, not boiling.)  ***Silk Pure Almond Milk*** is also tailor-made for use as a topping on hot or cold cereals or fresh summer berries. 

**MY VIEWPOINT:**

I can't say that I would want to give up milk totally for ***Silk Pure Almond Milk*** but I certainly plan to enjoy it now and then.  One small quibble -- I wish that this beverage was also available in a **smaller **size container.  No matter how much I like it, 64 oz. of ***Silk Pure Almond Milk*** is a lot for a single person living alone to use up in seven to ten days -- the recommended maximum refrigerated storage after opening.

The texture just throws me off....very unnatural. There is way too much of the Gum ingredient. The flavor is nice but I could bring myself to swallow without feeling like I would vomit. I hope other brands don't have a lot of this same ingredient...cause I really would like to enjoy some almond milk.

    Delicious and refreshing!

    Comments about Silk Pure Almond Milk:

    For a variety of reasons, I have stopped drinking regular cow milk. I needed an alternative to still get a good source of calcium and other vitamins without having to take a bunch of supplements or eat pounds of green vegetables. I tried Silk Pure Almond and I was hooked. It tastes great on its own but is also fantastic in smoothies. It is made with quality ingredients and provides you with essential nutrients for your everday life. I'm glad I found a healthier and more natural alternative to cow milk.

    Comments about Silk Pure Almond Milk:

    Almond milk is so much healthier than dairy or soy milk and it tastes great! The vanilla tastes better just because it is sweeter, but I use the original on my cereal, when I have cookies, when I make a smoothie, or when I just want a glass of milk. I also enjoy the chocolate for a treat.

    Silk Almond Milk is delicious and refreshing!

    Comments about Silk Pure Almond Milk:

    I don't like dairy milk at all. I hate the way it smells, the way it is thick, and the fact that it came from a cows utters. When I did drink dairy milk I would get a bit of an upset stomach. Because of those factors I tried Silk Almond Milk out and I love it! It is so refreshing and I feel that using it instead of dairy milk is a healthier choice. I tried Silk's soy milk but it has a weird flavor and I don't like it in my cereal so I figured Silk Almond Milk is my favorite and now I always buy it. I love the flavor of it. It doesn't overpower my cereal. I always buy the original flavor so I can drink it with cookies or any other sweets and use it to make milk shakes. I also like the fact that it lasts long in the refrigerator. Regular dairy milk lasts a little while but Silk Almond Milk can last a couple weeks before it expires. It's so good that I actually use it all up though during the first week I buy it.

    The best taste. I love this brand.

    Comments about Silk Pure Almond Milk:

    I bought Silk Almond Milk for my daughter after she developed a milk allergy. I started reading and comparing the nutrition label with milk and noticed the Silk had fewer calories and less sugar. All of the nutritional benefits seemed to be the same. I switched my cereal to Silk and I actually prefer the taste. It's really good. I also like that I'm saving calories and sugar with the Silk.

    TRY IT!

    Comments about Silk Pure Almond Milk:

    After being told to avoid dairy as much as possible by my general practitioner, I decided to switch to 'non-dairy' dairy. I tried soy milk at first because my sister recommended it (dairy sensitivities run in the family) and I didn't really like the flavor of soy milk, even the vanilla kind. So, I tried almond milk and I love it. I like nuts, so having the milk have a nutty zing to it is tasty, and also a bit interesting. You can also get the Silk Almond Milk in other flavors like vanilla and chocolate! I bake with almond milk and it goes really well with cereal (especially Honey Nut Cheerios or any of the Kashi cereals with nuts). Not only is Almond milk healthier, but in my opinion it is tastier. The ONLY downside to almond milk is that a carton doesn't last as long as cow's milk; they have to be drank within 7-10 days after opening. You will never know if you don't like it, if you don't try it!

    creamy and delicious!

    Comments about Silk Pure Almond Milk:

    I have been drinking almond milk for quite a while now! I stopped drinking dairy milk a while back and was looking for an alternative to soy, because I was reading up on it and a few websites said it was bad. I wasn't lactose intolerant or anything, I just thought milk wasn't very good for your body. I thought I was out of luck until a friend recommended I tried some almond milk, and luckily I did. It was creamy and delicious plus it had twice and much calcium than dairy milk and 40 fewer calories per serving. It also came in a nice carton that fit well in y refrigerator. It tastes very surprisingly creamy with a hint of sweet and nutty. I have felt great since I stopped drinking milk. I would recommend this to people who are lactose intolerant and kids, they love it! Even if you are not lactose intolerant, you should get this, it tastes amazing, even better than airy milk! Good luck!

    Comments about Silk Pure Almond Milk:

    Silk pure almond milk is so delicious. I use it everyday for my vi shakes. It is less calories then milk and it has more calcium then milk. My kids also love almond milk. They really like the taste over milk. We also use it to make shakes with chocolate to make it taste like an almond joy. I love silk and it keeps me healthy.

    Delicious!

    Comments about Silk Pure Almond Milk:

    SIlk Pure Almond milk is a delicious, low calorie dairy-free milk. The nutty taste complements cereals, coffee, and smoothies without overpowering what it is flavoring. Silk is my second favorite brand of almond milk, behind Almond Breeze, but it is certainly still a wonderful option. It is also very affordably priced, and you can even buy quart servings that don't have to be refrigerated before opening, so you can stock up when they are on sale. A great product.

    Delicious and less sugar than regular milk

    By 

    from USA

    Comments about Silk Pure Almond Milk:

    I fell in love with almond milk from the first sip, and Silk is my favorite brand by far. I prefer to buy Silk's Unsweetened Vanilla 30 calorie almond milk because not only is it satisfying and delicious, it's also lower in sugar than regular milk. The Vanilla flavor adds just the right amount of taste to this milk so that it can be enjoyed alone in a glass, or combined with other ingredients in a smoothie or even in desserts and entrees. Silk also offers a Chocolate flavor, but I wasn't really impressed with that one. It really didn't have a chocolate taste at all when enjoyed alone in a glass. But I'm sure it would have been a nutritious alternative for smoothies and goodies. But in my opinion, simply using the Vanilla flavor and adding a tablespoon or two of Cocoa is just as healthy and much tastier! I also prefer to use the Vanilla flavored almond milk on cereal and in oatmeal, because I find I don't have to add sweetener. I personally am not vegan, but I have family members who are, and they've been impressed with Silk Almond Milk as a dairy alternative as well!
