Cooking with Silk

Quick Tips & tricks

Swirled in a smoothie or simmered in soup, Silk is right at home in the kitchen. In fact, you can substitute Silk for dairy milk, cup for cup, in almost any recipe.

Quick Tips & Tricks
  1. Bring the heat… Carefully

    Like milk, Silk will scorch if cooked at too high a temperature and can form a skin when heated. Stir constantly and use moderate heat for best results.

  2. Add a Little Thickener

    Because most Silk beverages are low in saturated fat, they require a little extra thickener to set up properly in puddings and custards. Add 3 tablespoons cornstarch to any pudding recipe. The proof is in the pudding!

  3. Sip It-Don’t Whip It

    Silk for Coffee doesn’t contain enough fat to whip up like dairy cream, so you can skip the whip. Instead, drizzle it over fresh fruit or cobbler for an added bite of deliciousness!

  4. Find your Flavor

    Silk Unsweetened Original is our most neutral Silk, suitable for almost any recipe. Silk Original brings a hint of sweetness and is an addition to most cooking occasions.

  5. Fridge over freezer

    Freezing Silk isn’t recommended for storage because the consistency and taste can deteriorate when thawed. Hot tip:, Silk might not freeze, but it’s the perfect partner for frozen desserts. Jazz up any icy treat, from fruity popsicles to Granita.

  6. Sweeten your Treats

    Silk Vanilla and Silk Chocolate bring extra festive flavour to desserts and breakfast treats.
