*Review and Giveaway*

9 May

Welcome to a new week! This one is particularly exciting for me because it is my last week of work at the bank!!

Catching up from the weekend? Check out my recent favorite things list. I forgot one other product that should have been added to that list and I thought it would be a good idea to kick off the week with a little giveaway featuring that particular item..

Silk Almond Milk:


I used to be a loyal Almond Breeze lover, but decided to give the Silk brand a try a while back, due to it’s great stats. Here are the main things that I noticed with the Silk almond milk as compared to Almond Breeze:

  • more calcium and other nutrients
  • slightly lower calorie and fat content
  • thicker and creamier than any other milk I’ve tasted
  • more cost efficient

Silk is running a campaign called the 10 Day Challenge.

It’s simple. Just swap out your regular milk of choice with Silk milk. Give it a try for 10 days and prepare to be a Silk-convert!

1 cup of the unsweetened one has just 35 calories, is packed with good nutrition and can be used in really anything. I use it every day now in both sweet and savory things such as..





protein shakes:


vegan cream sauces:


It is so versatile!

The awesome people over at Silk would like to hook 1 Sweet Cheeks reader up with the following:

  • 1 Silk Coupon
  • 1 Silk Brander ChicoBag

Just leave a comment on this post telling me your favorite healthy food/drink swap.

For me, (besides swapping almond milk for regular milk) I swap Kombucha for soda pop. Muuuuuch better and absolutely delicious. πŸ™‚

and of course, the Additional entries:

  • tweet about the giveaway
  • link back to the giveaway
  • subscribe, follow, add to blogroll, etc.

I will choose a winner at the end of the week!

Everyone have a wonderful Monday!
