Yay Water + {Brownie Batter Zucchini Muffins}

I already declared my love for Silk almondmilk in this post, but now I have even one more reason to love it! I recently learned that switching to Silk once a week (instead of regular cow milk) will save over 26,000 gallons of water in a year!! Say what?!?!? I had no idea. Here's the deal. It's easier and takes less water to produce a gallon of almondmilk than to feed/nurture the cow and associated pasture and barn to create the same amount of dairy milk.So it turns out switching to Silk almondmilk is good for your body AND the Earth!

Introducing Brownie Batter Zucchini Muffins:

Made with creamy dark chocolate almondmilk and zero eggs, this is truly a brownie batter you can eat with a spoon (if you so choose!). But I have to say, it's pretty amazing in muffin form too!

Delicious, moist, fluffy, decadent chocolate muffins, with an entire zucchini hidden inside! #winning

My absolute favorite way to enjoy these muffins: with all natural peanut butter drizzled on top! #ohmyyum

Some chocolate milks can have as many as 30g of sugar per serving, but Silk Dark Chocolate Almondmilk only has 17g of sugar! And just for reference, regular cow milk has 12g of sugar per serving.

Sooooooo, go ahead and:

  1. Save 500 gallons of water everytime you choose Silk almondmilk. #amazing
  2. Follow Silk on Facebook to learn other awesome facts about their products. #innovative
  3. Make these brownie batter muffins asap! #scrumptious
