Start the day right with a Vegan Chocolate Covered Strawberry Smoothie! Creamy and smooth, this breakfast beverage stars Silk Dairy-Free Yogurt Alternative and it’s the perfect addition to your morning routine.
Dairy has too long been a part of my morning routine.
Milk in my cereal. Cream cheese on my bagel. Cream in my coffee. (That one’s the hardest to give up.)
I’ve known I am lactose intolerant ever since I took Nutrition 101 in college. Suddenly it made sense why pizza and ice cream cake had always made me feel sick whenever I ate them at birthday parties as a kid.
Most of the time, I can get by with small amounts of dairy, or I can take a lactase supplement to help with digestion. It means I can actually enjoy dairy products from time-to-time. (Because who doesn’t love pizza and ice cream cake?!)
The rest of the time, though, I try to be more-or-less dairy-free.
Which is why I was so very excited to discover Silk Dairy-Free Yogurt Alternative!
Silk Dairy-Free Yogurt Alternative is made from soy milk and it comes in a variety of flavors, including vanilla, strawberry, peach mango and blueberry. It’s free of cholesterol, dairy, lactose, gluten and saturated fat, and it even contains live, active yogurt cultures.
Best part? There’s no artificial flavors or coloring, and no high-fructose corn syrup!
And it’s vegan! I’m not vegan, but because of my lactose intolerance, I do appreciate a good vegan smoothie.
Going dairy-free definitely makes breakfast more difficult, but I love that there are so many more great options out there these days — like easy-to-find nut milks and Silk Dairy-Free Yogurt Alternative.
I’m beyond thrilled that this product exists, and I couldn’t wait to incorporate it into a Chocolate Covered Strawberry Smoothie.
It’s almost strawberry season, and I cannot wait to eat those juicy, ruby beauties by the bushel!
One of my favorite treats are chocolate covered strawberries — I could eat them all day, every day! Including breakfast.
Making smoothies for breakfast is a great way to sneak them into my day.
With Silk Dairy-Free Yogurt Alternative in strawberry and/or vanilla, frozen strawberries, real cocoa powder, honey and the non-dairy milk of your choice, this simple dessert becomes a stunning breakfast beverage.
You’ll be sipping on this all summer long, as it tastes just like a chocolate-covered strawberry!
Bonus points for me that it’s dairy-free! Cheers! // susannah
