Some of you may already know that I love Silk® milk! What you may not know is, Silk® not only provides delicious, plant-based nourishment, but they also conserve water because producing Silk® saves 500 gallons of water per half gallon over conventional dairy milk! Of course, it is everyone's responsibility to do our part! Silk® is partnering with The Nature Conservancy to help advance water conservation efforts across the U.S. For every 'share' of one of Silk's® Earth Month videos, they will donate $1.00 to The Nature Conservancy (up to $20,000!!) How easy is that?! All you have to do is share a video to donate!

You may be wondering, "what can I do to help conserve water?' I was surprised at just how easy it is with small changes! Here are some ideas:
  • Reduce the time it takes to wash your hair in the shower by two minutes and you'll save an average of 18 liters of water per shower!
  • Turn off the water while brushing your teeth to save hundreds of gallons each year! The average person uses about one gallon of water while brushing - equaling 730 gallons of water when brushing twice per day!!
  • Change your shower-heads to low-flow models to save up to a half-gallon of water per minute of shower time!
  • Switch your water-using appliances to energy efficient models! Newer models of dishwashers use as little as four gallons of water per load, compared to 20 gallons used by older models! Front-loading washers use about 20 gallons of water per load, compared to 40 gallons of water for older top-loading models. Energy-efficient toilets use as little as one gallon of water per flush, compared to about three gallons of water for more dated models.
I don't know about you, but just seeing my utility bills go down would be an added bonus!!

Switching from dairy milk to Silk® was easy for me .... I've never been a fan of dairy milk. I love using Silk® in my favorite recipes that call for regular dairy milk ... like this Old-Fashioned Custard Pie made with Silk® Vanilla Soy Milk!



Old-Fashioned Custard Pie
Printable recipe
Yield: 8 servings

Pastry for one 9-in. pie crust (homemade or store bought)
4 large eggs
½ cup sugar
2-½ cup Silk® Vanilla Soy Milk
1 tsp. vanilla
½ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. ground nutmeg

Move the oven rack to the lowest position. Preheat oven to 450°F.

Line a pie plate with the pastry for the pie crust. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, beat the eggs slightly with a whisk. Beat in the sugar, Silk® Vanilla Soy Milk, vanilla, salt and nutmeg. Pour the filling into the pie plate.

Bake for 20 minutes on the lowest rack. Reduce oven temperature to 350°F and continue to bake for an additional 10-15 minutes or until a knife inserted halfway between the center and the edge comes out clean. Refrigerate at least 4 hours. Immediately refrigerate any remaining leftover pie after serving.

*Note - cover the edges of the pie with aluminum foil if needed
