Thick

Rated 4 out of 5
August 5, 2021

I was surprised at the thickness. I usually only drink the unsweetened silk regular but it was out so I grabbed this. Will be great in smoothies. Not sure I could drink a glass of it straight up. Surprised by the fat content, as well. It’s definitely rich. Not sure if I will buy it again.

Too much sodium!

280 mg of sodium versus 110 on regular Silk Soy. I will have to water it down. Taste and texture is great.

I grew up drinking whole milk, so the thicker texture doesn’t bother me at all. The flavor is lovely – I drink the unsweetened – and not overpowering at all. I hope they never stop making this!

Not for cereal

The first time I tried it (unsweetened), I poured it on my cereal like I do with h other non-dairy milks. I was surprised by the thickness and consistency, but went ahead and tried it. It’s not a good choice for cereal at all. Maybe good on it’s own or mixed in a smoothie.

The Ultra is my preferred milk source because of the 20g of protein /serving. I am not surprised by the thick texture, but I don’t use it for cereals. I usually drink it straight or pour in coffee. It is a great nutrional source for my athletic training.

This protein is absolutely delicious and doesn’t clump with heating. It’s good alone, mixed with sugar-free Chai tea latte concentrate or sugar-free chocolate syrup. I also use it as the protein in my green smoothies. It is my daily breakfast and many times something to have in the evening when hungry. I love it. I use the original. I will have to check Fred Meyer for it. I’ve only seen at Target so far. I just discovered it a short while ago. After I tried it, I went back and got 3 more cartons. I am on the last carton now and will get more after work, TODAY. Thanks so much for this amazing protein. I have seriously stopped using the protein powder that I once swore by. Silk Ultra has the calcium and other vitamins. My current protein powder is whey and at most, some flavors contain calcium. This is a perfect way for me to meet my daily protein requirements. Thanks

It's. Just.So.Thick.

PRO: The lack of cloyingly sweet ingredients. I am very sensitive to artificial sweeteners and hate the sickening sweet “natural sweetener s”. Silk Ultra is great when blended with ice.
Con: I CAN’T drink it straight. It is SO THICK. I do prefer it to any powders.

I tried the chocolate. I usually drink the 3 Cashew protein varieties. I don’t want anymore soy in my diet so this is a “no” for me

I really love this milk because i suffer with trying to get enough protein in throughout the day. Im a runner and burn through calories fast and never get enough protien. Yes its thick but if u drink protein shakes you’ll be use to it. I add this to my oatmeal and it gives it a perfectly thick consistency and doesn’t taste weird and chalky like a protein powder mix might do, (which iv tried). Great for smoothies too! If u dont have time to cook chicken or a whole meal for protien this makes it easier.
