Dairy-Free Black Cherry Streusel Muffins are a delicious way to start your morning.
Recently the good folks at Silk were kind of enough to send me two flavors of their new dairy-free yogurt alternative to try and I loved them! I made one of my favorite smoothie recipes with the Tropical Pineapple flavor and today’s muffin recipe with the Black Cherry flavor. Have you had a chance to try the Silk Dairy-Free yogurt alternative? It has 6 grams of soy protein per serving, with no cholesterol and it’s made from REAL fruit. Silk Dairy-Free yogurt alternative is also a great source of calcium and vitamin D. Plus it’s super smooth and creamy, so you won’t even believe it’s dairy free!
Now let’s talk muffins. They are one of my all time favorite breakfast foods and make a quick grab and go afternoon snack, so what’s not to love? I bake muffins all the time, my kids love them and it makes the morning rush a lot less hectic. These Black Cherry muffins are topped with a tasty streusel that makes them completely irresistible. No lie… I ate three the day they were baked, even my toddler loved them.
