Soy Milk (Silk) Vs. Regular Milk

Today I’ll square off the new soy milk, otherwise known as Silk against the traditional 2% white milk. carton of silk picture

I guess I should start with the taste. It is rare for me to just sit there and drink white milk, so I wouldn’t sit back and enjoy a glass of silk either.

My initial impression if Silk was that it doesn’t really taste like milk. It is vanilla flavored, and really didn’t taste that bad. I also found that tastes pretty good when you add chocolate flavoring, such as Ovaltine or Nesquick. I poured it over my bowl of Cheerios and decided to have another bowl it tasted so good. Overall, the taste was better than I had expected. Drinking Silk is nothing to be afraid of.

Now for the nutrition. I put together the nutritional label face-off chart for your viewing pleasure.

Hands down, Silk was the winner of this one. I would recommend Silk as an alternative to milk, but not a substitute. I don’t think you can use silk in a lot of recipies and expect the same result. However, I’m not an expert.
