BROOMFIELD, Colo., Feb. 24, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- There’s a new way to savor break time, whether it’s morning, midafternoon, or night. Introducing Nutchello™: a deliciously smart beverage from Silk® that contains 90 calories or less per serving. 

Nutchello’s distinctive blends of nut flavors provide a deliciously satisfying taste experience. Three flavors are now available:

  • Caramel Almond Cashew provides luscious notes of caramel blended with toasted almonds and creamy cashews.
  • Dark Chocolate Walnut offers a combination of decadent dark chocolate paired with the taste of roasted walnuts.
  • Toasted Coconut Cashew provides a lightly sweet taste of toasted coconut combined with the creaminess of cashews.

And because it’s from Silk, Nutchello is free of dairy, artificial flavors or colors, and high-fructose corn syrup.

“At Silk, we’re passionate about building a better future through plant-based foods and beverages,” said Rebekah Lyle, Director of Marketing, Silk Plant-Based Foods & Beverages. “We are proud to bring a delightful new plant-based option to the market for those seeking a delicious break in their day.”

To celebrate the launch, Silk is partnering with culinary tastemaker and best-selling author Katie Lee to create cocktail recipes for a different kind of pick-me-up—after work, of course. Tapping into her vast repertoire of culinary creativity, Katie crafted six cocktail recipes using Nutchello as a base:

  • Nutty Caramel  Banana Daiquiri
  • Spiked Caramel Almond Chai Tea Latte
  • Dark Chocolate Raspberry Kiss
  • Frozen Dark Chocolate Mocha Margarita
  • Toasted Coconut Martini
  • Toasted Coconut Cashew Refresher

Katie Lee will officially unveil the cocktails with Nutchello at the Food Network & Cooking Channel South Beach Wine & Food Festival presented by FOOD & WINE on Saturday, February 27, 2016 at the Goya Foods Grand Tasting Village featuring MasterCard Grand Tasting Tents & KitchenAid® Culinary Demonstrations. Nutchello will be at the festival all weekend, offering attendees a first taste of the new Nutchello beverage.

Nutchello will be available at grocery stores nationwide in early 2016 for a suggested retail price of $4.49. Find Nutchello in the refrigerated aisle near other Silk products, which include Almondmilk, Cashewmilk, Coconutmilk, Soymilk, dairy-free creamers and yogurt alternatives.
