Probably stating the obvious here, but since I’ve given up dairy, there are two foods I really, especially, miss. The first, of course, is cheese. The second? Yogurt!
Oh man, I used to eat yogurt daily. So I was pretty excited work with Silk® again, this time creating a recipe using Silk Almondmilk Yogurt Alternative. It’s made with almond butter and just a handful of other ingredients. It tastes great, is silky smooth, and comes in all kinds of flavors like vanilla, strawberry, and peach. Each flavor sports 5-6 grams of protein. Basically it’s a win all around.
Back in my yogurt heyday, I used to love making fruit salads with creamy yogurt-based dressings. So once Silk Almondmilk Yogurt Alternative was in my life, it was time to create a new fruit salad recipe. Stat.
I thought a few summery fruits tossed in a light, citrusy dressing would be perfect for the season … and for some reason, I’ve been into poppyseeds lately – especially the lemon poppyseed combo.
I stirred some lemon zest, lemon juice, and poppyseeds along with a container of vanilla Silk yogurt alternative …
Just as I suspected. YUM. Then, I tossed in a bunch of fresh fruit, and yep. So good. Oh yogurt, I missed you.
You can enjoy Silk Almondmilk Yogurt Alternative straight out of the carton, layered in breakfast parfaits, whipped into creamy smoothies, and of course in this summery fruit salad. Yay for yogurt!
