True’s allergic to dairy. We figured this out when she was about 6 months old, since then she’s been a soy milk drinker. We have dairy milk in the house too, but the other girls naturally gravitate to that carton of soy milk that’s sitting in the fridge. Actually, I do too and I have a cup every morning! I add some protein to it and it gives it a thicker consistency that makes it extra creamy (silk soy milk is already pretty creamy!). I used to have a cup (or 2) every afternoon too, but I was going way overboard in my intake of milk products, so I cut back and stuck to drinking it in the morning. Even though I limit myself to drinking it in the morning, it doesn’t stop me from serving my girls with some soy milk in various ways throughout the rest of the day.
I think it’s that little bit of sweetness that gets us. Besides having it with cereal, it is best for mixing in with smoothies or making popsicles (or just pairing it with some cookies!). You’ve got the natural sweetness from the fruit combined with the subtle sweetness in the vanilla Silk Soy Milk, and it’s come out perfect. No added sugar needed! We’ve tried other soy milks and Silk Soy Milk is the absolute best. The other ones tend to have an earthy flavor, but Silk really is silky. My husband thinks Silk is the gold standard of soy milks when it comes to flavor. The yumminess of it all makes my girls (even me!) do a jitter dance.
