BROOMFIELD, Colo., USA – The beginning of the year is a great time to make new habits, and Silk, America’s No. 1 plant-based beverage brand1, wants to help plant-curious people achieve their New Year’s resolutions to add more plant-based alternatives to their diet this year, starting with almondmilk.
With new Silk® Extra Creamy Almondmilk joining the ranks of the Silk almond portfolio — which also includes great-tasting beverages, coffee creamers and yogurt alternatives — Silk is making it easier (and more delicious) than ever to start a plant-based journey in 2022.
More Americans are embracing flexitarian diets. In fact, approximately 1 in 3 consumers use plant-based beverages at least once per week, and almost half of adults seek out plant-based products while shopping2. And what better way to start your plant-based journey than with almond! With 73%3 of new plant-curious consumers starting their plant-based journey with almondmilk, the Silk almond portfolio is a great introduction to plant-based alternatives.
It’s easy and delicious to incorporate almond-based products into your everyday diet, from enjoying Silk almondmilk in your favorite smoothie, over cereal, or in baking, to starting your day with Silk almondmilk coffee creamers, to snacking on the go with Silk almondmilk yogurt alternatives. New Silk Extra Creamy Almondmilk is made with a delicious blend of three kinds of almonds for a silky-smooth taste and has 50% more calcium than reduced fat milk4, is an excellent source of calcium and vitamin E, and has zero grams of cholesterol.
