Silk Cashew Creamy Cashewmilk - There's a new nut milk in town, and it's really good: creamy and delicious, with fantastic stats. The Unsweetened has 1/3rd the calories of fat-free dairy milk; both that and the Original have 50 percent more calcium than dairy milk! Each cup has 25 - 60 calories, 2 - 2.5g fat, 160 - 170mg sodium, 1 - 9g carbs, 0g fiber, 0 - 7g sugars, and <1g protein (PointsPlus® value 1 - 2*). Find it at select retailers, including Target, or just order online.
Mamma Chia Vitality Granola - Granola's getting a little giddyup: These crunchy clusters have a chia boost! They're also packed with whole grains, protein, and healthy omega-3s. Plus, the stats are pretty impressive for granola. A snack-sized serving (30g; about 1/2 cup) has 120 calories, 4 - 5g fat, 80mg sodium, 15 - 16g carbs, 3g fiber, 5 - 7g sugars, and 5g protein (PointsPlus® value 3*). Find it at Target and select other retailers, or just order online.
Chameleon Cold-Brew Coffee and Coffee Concentrates - Premade iced coffee is great, but most are already heavily sweetened and/or have milk added. Not these! Grab a bottle of the coffee or mix the concentrate with water; then doctor it up however you like! In Vanilla, Mocha, and Black, each serving (4 oz. concentrate or 10 oz. coffee) has 0 - 40 calories, 0g fat, 0mg sodium, 0 - 9g carbs, 0g fiber, 0 - 9g sugars, and 0g protein (PointsPlus® value 0 - 1*).
