These beautiful Spring muffins are light, airy and bursting with flavor. The look and taste of these muffins would definitely put you in a sunny mood! I loved the idea of making muffins out of a pound cake, it’s like having an individual lemon pound cakes topped with lemon glaze. They are so perfect as breakfast or as a dessert. Eat them whenever you want!

Guess what, I also used Silk Coconutmilk to make these pound cake muffins! I was first introduced to Silk products when my son turned one. At that time, he was transitioning to regular milk. We quickly came to realize that he had a sensitivity to milk. He is not lactose intolerant but he does have a sensitivity to the fat in milk.

When we were still figuring it all out, I got Silk Almondmilk to try. I loved almondmilk but I would not let him try soy milk for obvious reasons. (I was concerned about giving soy to a boy.) I actually like almondmilk much more than he did so we ended up giving him skim milk. I, on the other hand, buy some almondmilk for myself once in a while.

Somehow, I didn’t know that Silk also has Coconutmilk!!! Hello…coconut addict here and I didn’t know. Embarrassing!

The second I saw it at the store, I knew I had to have it. It was great in baking and I’ve been trying it with everything ever since. I love it in my morning coffee and with cake. (Oh, just wait till I share the cake this week!) It’s light in flavor and has a hint of coconut. It also has only 80 calories.

  1. I’ve always heard great things about Silk coconut milk. I’ve stuck with almond, but these are convincing me to branch out. Loving all the spring colors and flavors! They make me happy just looking at them – I can only imagine what tasting one would do :)

  2. Love that you used coconut milk in these, they look like the perfect pound cake muffins!

  3. These look so good Lyuba and I will be on the lookout for Coconut Silk! Thanks so much!

  4. I love baking with coconut milk…these sound delicious, Lyuba! And pound cake anything is wonderful…how clever to bake it into muffins!

  5. Lemon and coconut, these look divine Lyuba!

  6. These muffins look amazing Lyuba! I had no idea Silk made coconut milk – gonna look out for that next time :) I am such a sucker for lemon and coconut and that coconut glaze looks mouthwatering!

  7. Would the Silk Coconut milk be a different texture/thickness/what-have-you than regular coconut milk? I’m thinking in terms of a substitution here.
