Silk Cashewmilk is really creamy. I enjoyed the original over a bowl of granola or in smoothies and the unsweetened as a dairy-free substitute in recipes (this Creamy Cashewmilk Cashew Chicken looks awesome!). I like that Cashewmilk has 50% more calcium than dairy milk and 60 calories per serving in Original; 25% fewer calories than skim milk.*
Rather than share a savory recipe with you, like Cashew Chicken or a Curry recipe (I think that would taste really great with Cashewmilk), or a quick smoothie recipe, I decided to give Silk Cashewmilk a try in this Cranberry Gingerbread Muffin Recipe.
I have been working on some new holiday breakfast recipes to enjoy over the Christmas break when the kids are home and my family is visiting and I thought it would be fun to see how a dairy alternative would perform in holiday baking.
I first made these Cranberry Gingerbread Muffins about 3 years ago but I never shared them here on GoodLife Eats. I was happy to see that they turned out just as tasty using a dairy alternative as they do using dairy milk.
These muffins are really easy to whip up on a weekend morning or for a lazy holiday breakfast. The sweetness of the gingerbread pairs really well with the tartness of the cranberries. If you prefer, you can use dried cranberries in place of the chopped fresh cranberries.
