A couple of weeks ago the lovely people at Vive Soy sent me a mixed crate to sample and review. The range of soy milks is great with Vanilla, Unsweetened, Chocolate, Light, Sweetened and Cappuccino flavours available. The milks are fortified with calcium and vitamins A & D and are suitable for vegans.
I decided to experiment with the different milks so I could recommend the perfect partner for the milk.
Here are my findings:
The Vanilla flavour is a perfect partner to coffee, cereal, smoothies and for baking cupcakes, Victoria sponge and rock cakes. I also used to make custard.
The unsweetened is great for savoury dishes, such as creamy soups, curries, cheese-style sauces, pie fillings and for brushing on pastry before baking.
The chocolate is delicious straight from the carton in a tall glass with ice, but is also nice with cookies, for baking chocolate cakes and biscuits and in a hot chocolate.
The light is great in tea and coffee, in smoothies and on cereal. Also good in soups and sauces.
This is perfect in tea and coffee, milkshakes, smoothies and baking any desserts. Also tastes delicious on cereal.
This is milky iced coffee in a carton. Just pour over ice and drink or add to coffee and walnut cake batter.
If you haven't tried any of the Vive Soy range, then give them a whirl. Hopefully I have given you some inspiration for different ways to use soy milk in your kitchen.
Vive Soy is available in most major supermarkets and health food stores and retails for around £1.25.
What is your favourite soy milk brand and you most inventive way of adding it into your cooking and meals?
