Silk Fruit & Protein a new juice blend product, is now a part of the Silk family. Silk Fruit & Protein has three great flavors that are full of nutrients. I got to try these out and really like them. I haven't had the chance to try the Mango Peach yet, but have really liked the Mixed Berry and the Strawberry Banana flavors.
- Silk Fruit&Protein Mixed Berry: A tangy-sweet blend of blueberry, raspberry and more.
- Silk Fruit&Protein Strawberry Banana: A classic for good reason, beloved by fruit fans everywhere.
- Silk Fruit&Protein Mango Peach: A hint of juicy mango gives this blend exotic appeal.
Each of these are silky smooth and pretty sweet. They are kind of like a smoothie drink all on their own, but if you are like me you like some more texture and coldness. I used to make my smoothies with frozen fruit, cottage cheese/yogurt, and typically added more juice for sweetness. I now add the Silk & Protein instead of juice, giving me the sweetness I long for, but a creamier texture and more protein.
Want to try one of my recipes? Let me share my Strawberry Banana smoothie:
In a blender mix 1/2 frozen banana, handful of frozen strawberries, 1/2 cup cottage cheese, a big handful of baby spinach, and about 1/2-1 cup Silk Fruit & Protein Strawberry Banana(depending on how thick you want it). You will think you are drinking a milkshake! Even the kids will love it, my picky ones do!
I make a similar smoothie using the Silk Fruit & Protein Mixed Berry, and frozen berries. Now I am trying to think of a way to include the Peach Mango flavor. I have checked out the recommendations for cooking with Silk, and think this flavor may be great to flavor some whole grain pancakes, and top with some warm peaches....what do you think?
Silk Fruit & Protein is a good source of protein, having 5grams per 1 cup serving. It also is a good source of calcium, Vitamin D and Vitamin C. This makes a great item for breakfast, or as a snack.
