A spoonful of sugar may help the medicine go down, but you know what a spoonful of Silk does? It helps fuel my workouts — and life!

Silk’s new Dairy-Free Yogurt Alternative just launched a few weeks ago, and I am straight-up obsessed. I don’t always tolerate dairy well, but I love me some yogurt, so I’m always looking for dairy-free versions of the stuff. Problem is, a lot of the dairy-free alternatives out there have little to no protein and leave a lot to be desired in the taste and consistency department. But then Silk Dairy-Free Yogurt Alternative came into the world — with its 6 grams of protein per serving and smooth and creamy texture — and it changed my alternative-yogurt life.

Made from the goodness of plants instead of dairy, it’s vegan, has no cholesterol, is made with real fruit, has no artificial flavors or colors and tastes amazing. I got my fit foodie mitts on the Black Cherry and Tropical Pineapple flavors (they also come in Strawberry, Blueberry, Vanilla, and Peach & Mango) and found that they’re the perfect pre- and post-workout snack.

Just the right size and with 140 calories per serving, they’re fit fuel that tastes great! Plus, they’re a good source of calcium and vitamin D and are gluten-free, carrageenan-free, vegetarian and low in saturated fat. Nutritionals are always important to me, but now that I’m knocked up, I’m super picky about what goes in my body — and making sure I’m getting plenty of protein and calcium!

I’m also quite ravenous these days. Quick snacks are a must, and before and after I do any workout, like this one, I fuel up.

Nicknamed the 10×5 workout, I set a timer for 20 minutes and see how many rounds of these moves I can get through. I do my incline push-ups and assisted pull-ups on the TRX, tricep dips off a chair and shoulder presses with 15-pound dumbbells. On this day, I got through four full rounds, plus 30 reps (through the pull-ups).

Lately, I’ve really been digging the Black Cherry with walnuts on top.

And the Tropical Pineapple topped with a few goji berries.

I really, really love that these are made from cultured soy, not dairy. My tummy is happy, baby and I get calcium and protein, and it tastes so creamy and delicious. It’s the fuel I — or, really, we — need! And after this little girl makes her arrival, I plan to have a fridge fully stocked with Silk Dairy-Free Yogurt Alternative so that I always have something healthy to nosh on.

What would you top your Silk Dairy-Free Yogurt Alternative with? And what workouts would it fuel for you? I plan to play around with it in smoothies and with granola! And I know it’ll help fuel my next prenatal yoga class. Jenn
