Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I cringe when I hear someone say “I don’t have time for breakfast” or “my first meal of the day is lunch”. It is critical to fuel your body! Enjoying a healthy and nutritious breakfast doesn’t have to take a long time to prepare, there are quick AND nutritious options. My family enjoys a healthy breakfast every morning, and usually it is accompanied by orange juice, coffee and/or milk.
When I heard about Silk Fruit&Protein, I wanted to give it a try. We are familiar with their soy milk products, and Fruit&Protein seems like something my son would enjoy. He is currently an orange juice lover (like his dad) and I limit how much he drinks because of sugar content. What I like about Silk Fruit&Protein is it provides a blend of hunger filling protein and fruit antioxidants. A 1 cup serving of Silk Fruit&Protein contains 5 grams of protein! Plus, it’s a good source of Vitamin C and D as well as calcium.
We visited our local Walmart to find Silk Fruit&Protein. I knew it would be in the refrigerator section (which was perfect since I also needed to buy milk and orange juice), but decided to visit the shelf stable juice section as well just to see what Walmart had to offer.
My kid actually pointed out the Capri Sun box that was flipped upside down, so I had to snap a photo. How many 3 year olds are that detail oriented?
I also wanted to sneak some Easter goodies into my cart without him noticing. While he was distracted by the chocolate bunny selection, I was able to grab a few items.
After our Easter aisle visit, we then made our way back to the refrigerated section. Silk Fruit&Protein was easy to spot, the packaging is bright and definitely stands out. I selected the Mixed Berry flavor. My son said he wanted orange juice and milk, so we grabbed those as well. I will be anxious to see what he asks for tomorrow morning.
We made our way to the checkout area and actually had a pleasant experience. Our cashier was extremely friendly and polite! I will honestly try to find her checkout aisle the next time we shop here!

The next morning, I had a glass of Silk Fruit&Protein with my breakfast before my son woke (I still had coffee too, there’s no way I can give that up). I enjoyed the flavor, it was bursting with berries! I am also going to blend with ice for a smoothie-like texture! I have been using a splash of juice in my smoothies, but not anymore! That juice will now be replaced with Silk Fruit&Protein!
When he finally woke, I asked him what he’d like for breakfast and he responded with “fruit, my breakfast bar and my new juice”. Since he asked for orange juice and milk at Walmart, I asked him to grab his “new juice” from the refrigerator. To my pleasant surprise, he selected the container of Silk Fruit&Protein (I did not persuade him in any way, he selected it on his own)!
I poured a glass and he loved it! I am thrilled he has found a new breakfast beverage that I approve of!
