Healthy body, happy taste buds—it all starts with
Silk, America’s favorite soymilk. Silk is lactose and
cholesterol free and is easily found near the dairy
case at Costco warehouses across the country.
Part of Your Day
The health benefits of soymilk—high in
protein, calcium and iron; low in fat; and
cholesterol-free—are compelling. But actually
consuming it every day is the challenge. It’s
white, sweet and cold. What’s the problem?
Drinking a glass with meals puts some people
off because soymilk is sweeter than plain milk
but not as sweet as chocolate milk. It has a bit
more body than dairy milk. If you love milk and
cookies you can probably make the switch. If
you’re lactose intolerant, you may learn to love
it. But if you’re not a milk drinker, it might seem
impossible to get on the soy bandwagon.
Here are several ideas for including soymilk
where you’ll never notice the difference:
DLatte: heat 1 cup of vanilla soymilk;
stir in 1 teaspoon of instant coffee
DHot cocoa: heat 1 cup of chocolate soymilk
in the microwave for 1-2 minutes and top
DFrench toast batter or pancake and
DFruit smoothies and milkshakes
DBlue cheese, cole slaw and ranch-style
DSour cream–based dip for chips
1 cup Kirkland Signature/
Silk Vanilla Soymilk
1/2cup frozen raspberries
1/2cup frozen strawberries
1/2sliced frozen banana
1 teaspoon honey, optional
1. Combine all ingredients in a blender; puree
until smooth and creamy.
2. Pour into glasses and enjoy. Makes 2 servings.
