I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned before my love of the peanut butter- chocolate combo, I may or may not have downed a whole bag of Reese’s eggs by myself over the last week. 😉 Today I’ve got this awesome recipe that is pretty guilt free and it’s my favorite combo. This shake is good, promise, I downed an entire glass right after taking the photo of it and yes its dairy-free thanks to Silk Cashewmilk. Cashewmilk?! I know, right. Its new and its really creamy (as you can imagine a milk made from those rich creamy nuts would be) it tastes so good and has less calories than skim milk. Say whaaaaat?! I love dessert, I’ve always had a sweet tooth and so when I figure someway to make myself feel better about downing something sweet I always take it. This shake is really good and you can feel good drinking it, win-win!
I was excited to try cashewmilk because we are already fans of almond milk and just knowing that cashews are so much creamier of a nut I figured it would be delicious. Matt loves cashews, we always have an opened bag in the pantry that we snack from and so I was excited to be given the opportunity to create a recipe for Silk with their newest cashewmilk.

I love peanut butter, like when I don’t want to fix dinner I always opt for a strait peanut butter sandwich. I was a little worried that this shake wouldn’t have the texture I wanted for a shake, and it isn’t as thick as an ice cream shake but the cashewmilk is definitely creamier than any other milk in my fridge and gives plenty of texture to the shake to make you believe your drinking dairy when you’re not. I always feel bad for the kids that feel left out because of allergies and this shake would help satisfy that problem!

No one in my family has a dairy allergy, and I’ll be the first one to admit I could never give up cheese, but its nice to experiment with different options and add in more plant based foods. Enter to win some delicious cashewmilk HERE.
