Two recipes – and two vegan recipes – in a row! I actually don’t think I’ve posted a non-vegan recipe on here for a while. Whoops. For the record, I haven’t went vegan. I’ve been eating my usual insane amount of Greek Yogurt and almost as much cheese as normal. I’ve been cutting back on actual meat because I just haven’t been feeling it lately and I have been eating more plant-based proteins: quinoa, lentils, legumes – that sort of thing.
I had the idea of banana split overnight oats in my head for such a long time. I always just planned on making normal chocolate overnight oats and adding fresh strawberries and bananas for the banana split overnight oats, but when Silk sent me a container of their new Dairy-Free Yogurt Alternative in strawberry, I instantly knew what I was going to do with it.
I typically eat plain Greek Yogurt for protein, but as I flirt with veganism (just the tip, just to see how it feels) I’m really into alternative yogurt choices. Silk’s new Dairy-Free Yogurt Alternative tastes just like normal yogurt, has the same smooth, creamy texture and is free of all the preservatives and junk flavored yogurts usually list as ingredients. It also has six grams of protein per serving and is a good source of calcium and vitamin D, so you’re not missing out on dairy yogurt’s nutritional benefits. It also comes in five other yummy flavors – blueberry, black cherry, vanilla (which I took down pretty quickly), tropical pineapple and peach & mango.
I don’t usually sign up for brand newsletters, but I’ve been getting Silk’s newsletter for well over a year now. They always have coupons, recipes and new product releases. I highly recommend signing up! You can also find more recipes for Silk’s Dairy-Free Yogurt Alternative on their Pinterest Board.
