Need a high-protein, dairy-free milk alternative? Silk Protein & Nut Milk just might be your new Holy Grail.
Combining the creaminess of almondmilk and cashewmilk with the thickening power of pea protein, Silk Protein & Nut Milk results in a rich beverage that eclipses 2% milk. It packs in a whopping 10 grams of protein per serving, and just look at how creamy it is.
Because it’s so thick, I found Silk Protein & Nut Milk to be a bit heavy for straight up sipping. But it works beautifully in smoothies, hot cereal, and baked goods. The consistency adds body and a very pleasant flavor.
It’s more neutral than nutty, but has a pleasant sweetness, despite being so low in sugars. The Plain has just 2 grams of sugars and has a mild taste with just a hint of sweet. The Vanilla has 6 grams of sugar with an almost addictive but gentle sweetness and the perfect touch of vanilla.
Beyond the low sugar and high protein aspects, Silk Protein & Nut Milk contains 8 grams of plant-based fats, 45% of the RDA for Calcium, 25% for Vitamin D, and 8% for Iron. It’s also sweetened solely with cane sugar (no funny alternative sweeteners!), and is carrageenan-free.
The only downfall that I noted with Silk Protein & Nut Milk is in the consistency. It has a very slight heavy finish and mouth-feel, and can get just a touch “gloppy” after resting in the refrigerator. I think the protein must cause some thickening. Just make sure to give it a very good shake before pouring.

Response from Go Dairy Free
I hate it when that happens! They seem to be having stocking issues with a lot of their products lately, but it isn’t discontinued.
Taste is pleasantly sweet without excessive sugar
For ingredients, nutrition, and flavor, this milk beverage gets an easy 5 stars. The taste is pleasantly sweet without excessive sugars or funny sweeteners. It also fills a big void for nutritive milk alternatives, packing in 10 grams of protein and 8 grams of fat per serving. The overall consistency is quite rich, but almost too thick and a little heavy for regular sipping.
