I used to love dairy milk. I would have a big cold glass everday. I would have a mug in the freezer waiting to be filled up with milk for dinner. One day as I was pouring it , I thought why am I drinking this and found it gross. I stopped drinking it right away. Then non dairy milk started hitting shelves and I could enjoy eating cereal again and adding it to smoothies. Now I have to have dairy alternative milks because it regular dairy hurts my stomach.
I’m sure you’ve seen almondmilk, coconut milk, soy milk, rice milk on shelves but now Silk added something new to the mix, cashewmilk.

Right now my store has original, unsweetened & recently saw chocolate on my last trip. It figures when I went last time I went to get unsweetened because I was going to make dinner with it. Chocolate wouldn’t really go well with the dish but will try it soon. I also want to find the vanilla.

Since I was making lots of smoothies with it or had it in my cereal, I wanted to make a meal.
I decided Mac n Cheese! Who doesn’t love Mac n Cheese ?
You can see the recipe here — > Scrumptious Mac N Cheese
Honestly I don’t know why we should eat boxed mac n cheese, when making your own is pretty easy. Sure its a little more effort but its worth it. Plus you can add some good stuff, like spinach & tomatoes. This mac n cheese is ooey, gooey yummyness.
I enjoyed being part of the Silk Cashewmilk campaign on BzzAgent. I don’t think I would buy the unsweetened just because I need more flavor & sweetness to it. I would buy it again when making mac n cheese or another dish that calls for unsweetened milk . I am going to look for the vanilla since that is what I like in my smoothies & cereal.
I received coupons to redeem for free Silk CashewMilk for testing & review purposes from BzzAgent. All opinions are my own.
