So Delicious Review and Giveaway!!

This contest is now closed and the lucky reader is … Connie! She uses the Barista creamer in pretty much everything, judging by her comment, haha.

They now offer a line of Coconut Milk Barista Style Creamers, in both original and french vanilla.

And (even more exciting for me, who doesn’t drink coffee), an Unsweetened Vanilla Coconut Milk!

Barista Style Creamers

When I opened the box they sent and saw so many containers of the creamer, I knew I was going to need reinforcements… so I did what any nice vegan does, and I shared! I had some happy co-workers that day πŸ™‚ I’ll share their opinions below, but first I want to share mine. I kept one container of the ‘original’ flavor for myself and used some of it for a double batch of my Creamy Broccoli Cheese Soup I was making for a recent Meetup. When I had originally created that recipe I used a soy creamer, and this was my first time subbing something else in… and it worked great! I didn’t notice any difference in the final product, so while I can’t speak really to the taste of the creamer in coffee, I can vouch for how great it works in cooking.

As for the peeps I shared with? One was a lifelong vegetarian who drinks one cup of coffee a day. She said the flavor and consistency were great and would purchase it again. Thumbs up!

The other two were actually husband/boyfriend of my colleagues, both of whom are committed omnivores (although one has recently been diagnosed as lactose intolerant so has been looking for dairy alternatives). The great news is that they really liked it too, and said they’d also purchase it again! These non-vegheads said they really enjoyed the flavor and liked how creamy it was. They had tried other non-dairy creamers in the past and hadn’t been happy with the consistency… until now!

I love introducing non-vegans to vegan products and getting such positive feedback!

Unsweetened Vanilla

These I kept all for my greedy little self πŸ™‚Β  To give you a little bit of background, I was never a fan of dairy milk. Other than on cereal or when cooking/baking, I hardly ever consumed it. When I first switched to plant-based milks, I was so pleased with the flavor of the sweetened and vanilla flavors that I went a little wild, ignoring the difference in calories between those versions and the ‘regular unsweetened’ versions. I’ve since switched entirely to the regular unsweetened (always either coconut or almond), but have missed the vanilla flavor. It’s so good on cereal and in smoothies!

The point I’m getting at is that now I can once again enjoy the vanilla flavor, guilt free! It has the same number of calories per serving (45) as their unsweetened coconut milk (the one in the green container), and fewer calories than their original (sweetened) version (in the red container) which has 70 calories per serving!

In case you jumped ahead to the giveaway part and ignored all that, the short version is “Thumbs up all around!”

The Giveaway:

One lucky reader, to be chosen randomly from the comments below, is going to win two FREE PRODUCT COUPONS, good for any So Delicious brand items! These are what they call VIP coupons.

The contest is open until Midnight (Mountain time), Sunday 4/21. The winner will be chosen randomly and announced the following day. To Enter: All you gotta do is leave a comment below telling us your favorite way to use plant milks. Do you drink them straight? Make milkshakes? Use them as some sort of weird shampoo?

  • Elisabeth April 15, 2013, 7:47 am

    I use them in my coffee, smoothies, and anytime I’m baking or cooking and the recipe calls for milk. I never liked cow’s milk as a child and wish all of these plant alternatives were available back then!

  • Sarah April 15, 2013, 8:14 am

    So Delicious sent me some as well – and can I say that the creamers make excellent lattes (yes, I was a barista in a past life πŸ˜‰ And oh yeah, the creamers? In frappes…drool!!

    The So Delicious Barista creamer is all I use in my hot beverages….yes, sadly, two of them are coffee/day….love the stuff. I had managed to give it up for a couple of years, then gave myself permission to have ONE…repeat…ONE…cup, and here I am, right back in the thick of things. But, I also drink lots of herbal tea, and love the So Del. creamer!! It also is marvelous in soups, mashed taters, anything I used to use cream in….YUM!!!! PICK ME…PICK ME!!!!

    I also use plant milks for everything – my husband and I drink rice milk and soy milk on our cereal, respectively, almond milk and coconut milk for some meals and baking. We’ve had ’em all, and love them!

  • Emilie April 16, 2013, 5:08 pm

    WOW! So Delicious is amazing!!! What an opportunity. I use them for EVERYTHING…cooking, drinks, baking. Making sauces is wonderful with dairy free alternatives! I do want and ice cream maker next so that I can try to make coconut milk ice cream.

  • RubyShooZ April 17, 2013, 12:33 pm

    I agree with Emilie because I use them in just about everything; not my coffee though.

    One thing that comes to mind especially is a recipe for a banana/date/soymilk/vanilla and barly malt decadent dessert. I bet they’ve got some great flavors that I haven’t yet seen so I’m excited to see what they’ve got to offer. Gotta check out their website soon!

    Thanks for the giveaway. Best wishes to everyone who takes part.
