Got Milk? How about Coconut Milk? A Great Alternative for those with Dairy Allergies~




Looking for a dairy-free and lactose-free alternative for cow's milk?  Struggling to get enough calcium in your diet?  Or possibly, do you need a soy-free option or are you trying to limit the amount of soy intake in your home?  Coconut milk may be an alternative you and your family will enjoy.


Silk Pure Coconut, all natural coconutmilk, distributed by WhiteWave Food, Broomfield, Colorado.

It is also casein-free and gluten-free.  The taste takes a little getting used to, and it's quite a bit thicker than the soy milk we normally drink.  I was pleasantly surprised how much I and my kids enjoyed this option.



Wondering about nutritional value?  Consider this information taken from the package:
          • 80 calories a cup VS. 120 in 2% dairy milk
          • Just as much vitamin D as dairy milk
          • 45% DV of Calcium VS. 30% DV of 2% milk VS. 10% DV So Delicious Original
Ingredients include:  ALL NATURAL COCONUTMILK (FILTERED WATER, COCONUT CREAM), ALL NATURAL EVAPORATED CANE JUICE, CALCIUM CARBONATE, NATURAL FLAVOR, GUAR GUM, CARRAGEENAN, CYANOCOBALAMIN (VITAMIN B12), VITAMIN A PALMITATE, VITAMIN D2.
