New Silk Ultra Protein Milk

Silk_ultra_Chocolate_milk Silk Ultra Protein Milk for High-Performance

The folks at Danone have gone back to the drawing-room for a new protein plant-based milk with the launch of NEW Silk® Ultra Plant-Based Protein Drink.  Each serving has 20 grams of protein. 

The new milk is perfect for drinking on its own, enjoying in your morning cereal or smoothie, or post-workout as a recovery drink.  It is available in original soy milk and chocolate soy milk at Safeway.   

As consumers are looking to increase their intake of plant-based proteins, this is a great alternative to the original line of non-dairy plant-based milk.

The last high-protein plant-based milk from Silk was their Silk Protein Nut Milk in 2017, for which I created a Blueberry Pie Protein Smoothie recipe.  The nut milk has 10 grams of protein and 2 grams of sugar.

Silk Ultra Plant-Based Protein Milk Review

I picked up the chocolate protein milk and have to say I enjoyed it as did my kids.  It was smooth and rich, with a velvety chocolate taste.  I used the protein milk to make a peanut butter banana chocolate smoothie as a post-workout recovery drink. 

It was filling and delicious!  Will totally buy again.  With no chalky aftertaste like a traditional protein smoothie – this milk is the perfect drink for fueling your body with plant-based protein.
