You Gotta Try This!

This is a compensated review from BlogHer and So Delicious®.

Win $100! Keep reading to find out how.*

I’ve been looking for something to replace dairy milk. While I'm not completely lactose intolerant, I get stomach cramping when I consume too much of it. So Delicious Coconut Milk is exactly what I've been searching for! The marketing folks at So Delicious say it tastes just like dairy milk. I disagree – it tastes better.

How have I used it?
The first test was regular flavored So Delicious, instead of cow's milk, to cook morning oatmeal. The So Delicious was wonderful - creamy and smooth.

Then, I tried the vanilla flavored So Delicious in my coffee. In an effort to be healthier, I’ve been doing without creamer for years. Until trying So Delicious, that is. It made my coffee rich and creamy with just the right touch of vanilla.

I’ve had So Delicious straight up and have had it poured over cold cereal. Both were yummy. Next up is to try it to make instant pudding.

Nutritional Bonanza
So Delicious Coconut Milk has good nutritional value, too. It has medium-chain fatty acids that burn easily for energy rather than get stored as fat. It has no cholesterol, is dairy-free, soy-free and certified organic. It’s also kosher, vegan and certified non-GMO (genetically modified Franken-food). It's also a good source of B12 and calcium.

I really want to thank the folks at BlogHer. If it weren’t for this opportunity with our client, I may have never tried this product. I really expected it to taste like coconut, which it doesn’t at all! I love, love, LOVE it! You will, too. Give it a try!

*Now, for the giveaway:

The So Delicious Coconut Milk campaign is about using it 7 ways in 7 days. I've mentioned a few ways I have used it, but I want to see what you, dear readers, suggest for this wonderful product. So, leave a comment here with a suggestion on ways to incorporate it in our diet.

I usually have to make a trip to the local ethnic store to get coconut milk. Good to know I can now find it in the grocer's aisle! We use it for coconut curry.
You can also use it for oatmeal, pudding, over cereal.

I wonder if it would work in instant sugar free pudding? Some liquids like cranberry juice won't thicken, but I'd love to try this and see.

I haven't tried coconut milk, but I quit using milk a long time ago because of the hormones. So the first way I would use it is to eat a bowl of cereal. I miss eating cereal.

ellie said...

My family loves banana pudding. This has me wondering how it would taste using this instead of milk. I just may try it and see how my family likes it.
Thanks for the giveaway!

I got a Ninja for christmas and it's been great for making daily fruit smoothies. I've gotten in the habit of cutting up a ton of fruit and freezing it for my kids so that can make it as an afternoon snack after school. Coconut milk would be a wonderful twist to our routine!

I think I would start with something where I wouldn't notice it so much like in baking. Then I might try it in puddings or cream pies.

Well You can use it for baking substitute for other milks and just a little in scrambled eggs should be scrumptious as I always like to use a dash oif milk in my eggs.

I'd have to start slow, we just got used to 2% over whole milk, maybe for baking and in tea coffee

I love coconut milk. We use it on our cereal, in our oatmeal, in quite a few baking recipes and just as a glass of milk.

guettel78 said...

I think So Delicious would taste great as a substitute for regular milk in cream-based soups as well as in cakes and frostings. Thanks!

I have tried this milk and it is a great sub for cow's milk, especially in baking! I did not really like it to drink straight, but I cooked with it and did not notice any difference!

My youngest has to have a drink with her medicine in it in the mornings so that's what I would use it for. Thank you!!

Scott said...

I think this coconut milk would be great to use in deserts as a substitute for soy or almond milk, expecially for those with soy/nut allergies. I tried the plain unsweetened version and was not too impressed with it as a beverage but really want to try the sweetened chocolate and vanilla versions now!

I like making puddings so I would try it in my banana and rice puddings. It would give it such a unique taste!

elango said...

I have never really noticed coconut milk at the grocery store, but I think I want to try it now. I love trying new things and will buy this if I can find it at the store. I always thought that coconut milk was really unhealthy but I guess I was wrong

latishajean said...

I would like it with my cookies my favorite! I love milk alone too so that would be good !
