Silk Soymilk - Is Good!

At my sons tap class on Tuesday, we were talking about milk, and one of the moms said that she'd started her daughters on soy milk, after one of them had a stomach bug in the fall.

She said that the Very Vanilla flavor was delicious, and you'd feel like you were drinking a dessert. Suffering from an incurable sweet tooth, I figured I'd give it a shot.

I don't know that I'd go as far as saying it was like drinking a big vanilla cupcake, but it was good - smooth flavored, sweet without being overwhelming. A little bit of a different mouth feel then regular milk, but really, if you didn't know you weren't drinking regular milk, you wouldn't know.

If you twisted my arm and told me I had to tell you something was the matter with it, I'd say it's that you can't cook with it. I got the Very Vanilla flavor, and I'm flipping through the recipe index on the Silk site, and don't see a single recipe that says you can use the Very Vanilla. With the sweeter recipes, you could probably get away with it, but none of them are calling for it. At $3 a gallon, I kind of need my drinks to multi-task!

Silk Soymilk


  1. I love Silk soy milk. If you like the Vanilla flavored stuff, like me, you might want to try 8th Continent Vanilla. Sooo good, especially in smoothies. :)

  2. Ooh, duly noted. I got some Silk chocolate today, and just came back from the store with Silk Vanilla, but I'll look for 8th Continent next time I'm out. I'm also intrigued by the idea of Almond Milk. Yes? No? I've tried rice milk before, and it's not so bad, but I'm kind of in love with the soy milk. :)
