Every once in a while a miracle product comes along. It doesn't happen often. If you look back through history, every so often something that was a real game changer is introduced. Things like Betty Crocker, TV dinners and microwave ovens.
For me, the discovery of So Delicious products has been a game changer. I have never been a fan of cows milk. I spent many evenings as a kid sitting at the dinner table long after everyone else was gone and the kitchen cleaned up. Just me and my full glass of milk: "You may be excused from the table when your milk is finished." As an adult, I never drank milk, but I did cook with it. Upon becoming vegan I experimented with soy, rice, almond and hemp milk but for whatever reason I do not like the way they cook and each has a distinctive taste that just is not pleasing to me.
I had pretty much stopped cooking anything that required any sort of non dairy milk product. Then, while at the grocery store one day I saw the So Delicious Coconut milk and decided I would give it a try. I really did not hold out much hope for this product and I was so pleasantly surprised by the results when I used it in cooking. A milk substitute that I could use! YAY!
Now, to be clear. I do not drink the stuff straight. There is still something about drinking milk that just doesn't bode well with me. Although, I will admit I bought the Vanilla flavor for this recipe (which by the way is not my own- I found it here but modified it to use the So Delicious Milk) and tasted some out of a glass- WOW- kind of like a vanilla milkshake.
And, as long as I am on this So Delicious roll-- the coconut milk ice cream is terrific too!
Thanks So Delicous! I am so happy to have found this product and encourage you to give it a try if you have not already!
Oh, and in case you were wondering, no, I am not an employee of the company nor I am not paid to say this stuff!
