Silk Almondmilk Dairy-Free Yogurt Alternative
I’ve being using Silk products for years. They are one of the first brands I turned to when I started on my plant based journey. You might remember these uber fluffy Peaches and Cream Pancakes or this Homemade Iced Caramel Macchiato I made using Silk products.
Silk is non-GMO, dairy-free AND lactose-free. They have a large variety of plant milks, creamers, and yogurt alternatives, making it easy to ditch the dairy while still enjoying your favorite tastes. Silk believes, and I do too, that all-or-nothing is not the only path to being healthier. Progress is Perfection!
These new Almondmilk Dairy-Free Yogurt Alternatives are smooth and creamy. We love them for breakfast with granola and fruit. They also make a great snack. I particularly love the Plain flavor – it has a touch of sweetness, but it works great in both sweet and savory recipes. It’s what I used to make these Crunchy Veggie Tacos and the Creamy Cilantro Yogurt Sauce.
Find Silk at Walmart

Walmart Grocery Pickup
I decided to use the Walmart Grocery Pickup for this order. We had an extremely busy weekend full of swim lessons, baseball practices, and birthday parties. I didn’t want to add grocery shopping to our already full schedule, but we definitely needed some food in the house. Within minutes, I placed my order online and chose a pick-up time that worked for me.
By “checking in” with Walmart Grocery Pickup app when you are on your way – Walmart knows when you arrive and sends an employee out to your car with your order. All you have to do is follow the large orange arrows directing you to the Grocery Pickup parking spots. They will even load it into your car for you if you wish. Bonus: the app alerts you when your order is ready 15 minutes before your chosen pick-up time…which is great if you accidentally forget that you scheduled it (I “might” know this from experience. HaHa!).
The day I scheduled my grocery pick up was cold, incredibly windy, and I had both girls with me. It was SO nice to not have to get out of my car. We were loaded up and on our way in just minutes. So convenient!!
Crunchy Breaded Veggies
These delicious veggies are first tossed in an easy batter and then coated with crispy crunchy breadcrumbs. I use a mix of regular and panko breadcrumbs. The regular breadcrumbs are super fine so they help the breading adhere to the battered veggies. The panko breadcrumbs are super crispy which means amazing crunchy texture for your Crunchy Veggie Tacos!
I promise you the breading will stick to the veggies easily, with little to no fuss, turning out perfectly every time!
Cilantro Yogurt Sauce
When you’re eating breaded food, you need a creamy sauce to balance the textures. This Cilantro Yogurt Sauce is a delicious compliment to the crunchy broccoli and cauliflower. It’s creamy and garlicky and packed full of cilantro. Parsley would be a great substitution if you’re not a fan of cilantro.
Less Dairy, More Plants
Health is hard, but feeling healthier doesn’t have to be. Making small changes to your diet, like loading up on extra vegetables or swapping out the dairy milk in your breakfast cereal for Silk Unsweetened Almondmilk, is one more victory on your path to a better you.

- 1/4 cup chickpea flour (sometimes called garbanzo bean flour)
- 5.3 oz Silk Plain Almond Dairy - Free Yogurt Alternative
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/2 tsp ground chili powder
- 1/2 tsp ground garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp ground onion powder
- 2 cups cauliflower florets
- 2 cups broccoli florets
- 1 cup breadcrumbs, panko
- 1/2 cup breadcrumbs, regular
- 1 bunch cilantro (stems cut off)
- 5.3 oz Silk Plain Almond Dairy - Free Yogurt Alternative
- Juice of 1 lime
- 1 large garlic clove
- pinch of salt (to taste)
- baby greens or lettuce
- thinly sliced radishes
- diced red onion
Preheat the oven 350 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment and set aside. (You may need two baking sheets to fit all of your veggies without overcrowding).
In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the chickpea flour, dairy-free yogurt alternative, water, chili powder, garlic powder, and onion powder until smooth.
In another mixing bowl, mix together the regular breadcrumbs and panko breadcrumbs.
Toss the cauliflower and broccoli florets in the chickpea flour batter and mix well to ensure the vegetables are completely covered.
Working in batches, transfer the battered veggies to the bowl of breadcrumbs and toss to coat. I like using two forks to gently toss the veggies so my hands don't get messy. Using the forks, scoop up the breaded veggies and transfer them to the prepared baking sheet(s). Spread the veggies out on the pan in one even layer with plenty of space in between. Do not overcrowd the pan!
Bake for 15-20 minutes until the edges are slightly browned and crispy.
While the veggies are cooking, make the sauce. In a blender or food processor, add all of the sauce ingredients and pulse several times until blended. You can purée it until smooth if you wish, but I like when the cilantro is still chunky.
To serve: fill each tortilla with baby greens or lettuce, top with the crunchy veggies, diced red onion, thinly sliced radishes, and a generous drizzle of the Cilantro Yogurt Sauce.
~Nutrition facts assumes two tacos per serving, including sauce and tortilla. Additional toppings not considered.
