Silk Dairy-Free Yogurt Alernative

I received a sample of Silk Dairy-Free Yogurt Alternative for free through Crowdtap in return for my honest opinion.

I do not like Soy whatsoever, except for edamame! However, I was pleasantly surprised to be chosen to try one of these and I have to say, I wasn’t exactly disappointed. I was apprehensive as I absolutely adore regular yogurt, mainly Greek style and whipped, so this was a whole other level. I gave it good shake to feel the consistency and it was very much like regular yogurt.

I chose Strawberry, but they had citrus flavors, vanilla, and a couple of other berry flavors.Β  When I first cracked it open, I was surprised to see actual strawberry remnants, like they had used some type of puree while mixing. It was a vibrant pink and had the scent of strawberry. It was a little thinner than I prefer, but I was excited to try. It has 6 grams of protein, which is less than my usual, regular yogurt, so I was somewhat bummed they didn’t incorporate whey in there.

Breakfast Preparation

I mixed mine up with fruit and enjoyed it. The downside was that the soy shines through at the very end of the pleasant bite. It was sweet like milk yogurt and then took a dive for slightly bitter, very soy-flavored aftertaste. I saw many recipes and think it would be an awesome alternative to blend into something like a smoothie, but I don’t think I’ll be eating on its own over regular yogurt any time soon. I love the idea, but hope they modify it a little further.

I received a complimentary box of GoGo squeeZ YorgurtZ through Crowdtap to review honestly.

The Berry flavor is more like raspberry and I am not that into it. It has a great consistency and it’s the perfect portion size. These are awesome for on-the-go and for keeping little ones clean during snack time.

Target has a deal going on Cartwheel in my area this week, so I’m going to get the Strawberry and they also have Banana that might be great with peanut butter.

I prefer the applesauce because it tastes like real fruits smashed into this package. The yogurt is heat-treated and they don’t have to go in the fridge, so it’s a bit different type of consistency than regular yogurt, it’s much thicker, but not like Greek yogurt.

I keep one in my gym bag because they pack a good amount of protein and minerals.

I gave a couple to my sister-in-law for my nephew. He loves them! They are simple to eat and, as far as I know, the kids like them chilled.

I would suggest you mix them with real fruit or cereal puffs.

I’ll be buying more at Target and hoping they have some of the new apple sauces. These are so simple and safe.

Lastly, I love the packaging! It’s not super bad on the environment and can be recycled.

The cap’s easy to remove, even for little hands to start grasping and helping themselves. I highly suggest for those who need a quick bite to eat or an easy, health-conscientious snack on-the-go!
