honey I love a good crisp!

I was contacted recently by the nice folks at Silk to see if I would be interested in sampling their new variety of soymilk. Of course I said yes, yes, yes, please, and thank you!

This particular Silk is called Heart Health and has been clinically shown to reduce bad cholesterol levels by up to 7% in just 4 weeks. Well, ya can't beat that, right?!

I decided to use my Silk in a yummy crisp.

This crisp is really nice! Give it a try when you get a chance!

Print me!

I hope you all had a lovely weekend! My son and I had a little mom and son date today. We went to see Toy Story 2 in 3-D. I haven't seen this movie since my daughter was little. It sure was fun seeing Buzz and Woody again!

Nice crisp. Looks great. I'll be sure to also try the Silk Heart Health. I love soy and regular milk.

I don't think there is a better dessert than a simple apple crisp. Yummy!

TKW said...

Apple crisp=fall, in my opinion. Your looks beautiful!

Love and apple - pear combo in your crisp. And Honeycrisps are the best!. I saw my first 3-D movie recently. Amazing!!!

The perfect fall dessert!! So delicious with apples and pears! How sweet to have a Mom and son date - I love Toy Story.

Judy said...

What an interesting recipe. I would never have thought to mix the fruit with the soy milk. I must give this a try.

George@CulinaryTravels said...

This looks delicious, like perfect autumnal fayre. I presume dairy milk could be used instead?

Randi Troxell said...

oh goodness! that just looks wonderful!

Some of my favorite thing there, crisp, honeycrisp apples. Yum!
I love how you used the soy milk.

Chef E said...

We drink Silk, and I use it often in cooking, the plain version... I would love this crisp!

The Blonde Duck said...

I am sooo glad you posted this! Now I can make this and Ben can't whine! It's heart healthy! :)

Natashya KitchenPuppies said...

I love the way you healthied up your beautiful crisp!

teresa said...

pure heaven, and what a great idea for your soy milk. both of my kids are lactose intolerant, so we have to buy soy milk for them. i've never tried silk before, i'll have to get some!

Faith said...

This looks like the perfect use for all the apples I seem to keep buying! By the way, the plate that the fruit is on is so pretty...I love it!

Experimental Culinary Pursuits said...

Oh yum! I've been hearing so much about these honeycrisp varities! Excited to try this out.

Katy ~ said...

Oh, boy does that crisp ever look good! Love crisp!!

I'm going to have to look for this soy milk. If it can reduce my cholesterol, plus make other small changes, to reduce it even further, I'm in!! Thanks for a terrific product review that I can and will pursue.

Mini Baker said...

I'm so excited to now have a recipe that incorporates soy milk! (it's always feeling left out! hehe)

Beyond delicious. That last shot has me wanting to grab 3 spoonfuls, HUGE spoonfuls.

I did this with Almond Milk. Silk was a very good idea, but Almond Milk has similar nutritional benefits and it's about $1 cheaper in the store.

Thanks for the recipe!

Krista said...

The crisp looks delicious and your pictures are gorgeous! I'm loving your new headline pics too! Perfect for the season. I've never tried Silk and my cholesterol is good, but for those who have cholesterol issues, what a wonderful product.

Thanks for a lovely apple crisp recipe!

Kristin said...

I'm with you. Throw any kind of fruit in a crisp and I'll demolish it!

What a great idea to add pears. I'm a huge fan of honey crisp apples. Can't wait to give this a try!

I could use some help in the cholesterol department. Must try this too!

Megan said...

This looks delicious! I've never made a crisp with any kind of milk. I love Silk. I've used it in waffles and pancakes before and different baked goods. And I can't start my day without Silk French Vanilla creamer in my coffee!
