Silky Chocolate Drink

Your Chocolate Priestess has reviewed chocolate milk products before. Some were excellent and highly recommended while other were not worth your money and time.  Today I'm looking at a chocolate milk that could satisfy those of you who are dairy allergies or intolerances. 

Silk is a brand of soy milk that has several serving sizes and flavors.  I bought this "Light" Chocolate version when it was on sale and I had significant coupon from our local Kroger's.  Much like organic milk, soy and other diary milk products that try to be an alternative for diary tends to cost a good deal more so finding it on sale is usually a wise move.  I got the "Light" because the chocolate I've enjoyed most is a skim milk version so I felt this was a more fair comparison.

8oz is one serving and it has 90 calories with 80mg sodium, 300mg potassium, 2g fiber, 14g sugars, 3g protein. as well as 10 vitamins and minerals. A very healthy drink I think.  It looks very much like chocolate milk and has a strong, pleasant chocolate scent.  It does taste sweeter than the skim chocolate milk we've had in the past and that might be either the soy or the cane juice in it.  I gave a glass to a friend of mine who has drank other types of soy milks and he said this is one of his favorite.  So if you are looking for a dairy alternative but want your chocolate, give this a try and I think you'll be happy.

Sisters and Brothers, may you, too, take the time to slowly appreciate what the Divine and human ingenuity have offered you in chocolate.
