I always say that the morning is the most important part of any day. If you don’t start the morning right, your day is doomed! I know that if I don’t get the right amount of protein my day goes all sideways. But sometimes making scrambled eggs isn’t terribly convenient. So that’s where cooking with almond milk comes in!

Silk has two new products – both perfect for the start of your day! Silk Almond Coconut Blend and Silk Almond Milk Protein + Fiber! Both products are available in the refrigerated section at Safeway stores! The nice thing about Silk is that when you choose it over regular milk you are getting some great protein and good-for-you fats that regular milk just doesn’t have.

I have created two great recipes for you to try both using Silk Almond Milk products! Both also gluten-free with no added sugars, so they are the perfect easy morning breakfast!
