I am always looking for ways to add more protein to my children’s diet. My fifteen year old recently decided she won’t eat beef or pork, so it is becoming even more challenging, since chicken and eggs get boring after a while! She loves orange juice, but that is mostly sugar and doesn’t provide any protein at all.  So naturally I was interested in the new Silk Fruit&Protein drink.

This product is a like a fruit juice with added protein, and it is easy to find in the dairy section of the store, with all the milk.  It comes in three flavors, Mango Peach, Mixed Berry and Strawberry Banana.  I knew that the Strawberry Banana flavor would be most appealing to my children.

When I got it home my children immediately volunteered to taste it, and we all love it!  It is kind of sweet, but not too sweet, and has a nice smooth texture.  My daughter calls it the “smoothie drink” because she says it tastes like a smoothie without the hassle of making one. She has been having a glass every day when she gets home from school, and it makes a great afternoon snack, since it includes protein, calcium and Vitamin D.

I was challenge to make recipe with it, and decide to try using it in a muffin.

Muffins are something I like to make for the family, since they go great with dinner.  This seemed like a good way to add a little more fruit and flavor to a muffin.  So I took my standard Oatmeal Muffin recipe, and replaced the milk with Silk Fruit&Protein.  The resulting muffin was nice and moist, and had a hint of banana taste.  Together with a glass of Silk Fruit&Protein and some fruit it made an excellent breakfast!
