Oatly Chocolate Ice Cream

We were so thrilled to have found such a wonderful plant milk in Oatly, you can only imagine our joy at finding this Oatly ice cream (aka “frozen dessert”).

Silk Heavy Whipping Cream

It was delightful to try Silk’s heavy whipping cream, especially since we’ve been so enjoying this vegan whipped cream from Trader Joe’s.

What a thrill to find Oatly‘s delicious oat milk locally (and since we first found it at our local co-op, it’s cropped up in several more locations…a great sign)! We haven’t devoted a lot of time on this blog to plant milks, especially since there are so many, and the tastes are so varied; also, …

Ripple non-dairy creamer

When the food co-op ran out of my favorite creamer (Wildwood, which has been apparently been discontinued), I thought I’d give Ripple a try.

Califia Farms Nutmilk Yogurt

We were very happy to find  Califia Farms cultured nutmilk drink (the dairy version would be kefir) in two flavors at our local grocer, strawberry and blueberry. We opted for strawberry (to start). This drink uses almond and coconut milk, along with real strawberries, which explains why it’s so rich and creamy. And it’s also …

So Delicious Cashew Milk

We’ve tried a lot of plant-based milks over the years (mostly for recipes like cakes and soups) and haven’t reviewed any of them yet because none has been really worth writing about … until now. This cashew milk from So Delicious is very good. Most plant-based milks are great for recipes, and almond milks are …
