Product: So Delicious Dairy Free Unsweetened Vanilla Cultured Coconut Milk – $5.99+
Do you know what love is?
Love is…a new and fabulous product from a company who prides itself on good quality products. And, lucky me…I had the opportunity to test drive a few of these new products from So Delicious!! I have not been disappointed.
One of the new products out there from So Delicious Dairy Free is their 16 ounce containers of Unsweetened Cultured Coconut Milk. They have two varieties of the unsweetened ones…plain and vanilla. And let me tell you…these do not disappoint.
I am a huge smoothie fan. And, for Christmas, I was given a personal blender. So smoothie making is SO much easier now. They are great for pre-run and post-run fueling and nutrition…as long as you use the right ingredients. Well, I’m not running much right now due to a severely sprained ankle. But…smoothies are still one of the best things in life. So…this week, I broke out a tub of the So Delicious Dairy Free Unsweetened Vanilla Cultured Coconut Milk.
It was brilliant. I put 1 cup of the Unsweetened Vanilla Cultured Coconut Milk into my blender, then added 1/4 cup pineapple juice, 1 tablespoon of flaxseed, and then a tropical fruit mixture of frozen fruit (mangoes, pineapple, strawberries, and peaches)…gave it a whirl…and viola. Smoothie.
Let me tell you…this makes a smooth, rich and creamy smoothie without adding sugar to the mix. There is plenty of sugar via the fruit that is used. I love having that option as I am trying to cut back a bit on the sugar I consume. This is one of my new favorite products from So Delicious. And it is so versatile. I used one of the plain ones in a very…very different manner and I’ll post about that in a bit. The fact of the matter remains, the vanilla doesn’t overpower or overwhelm. The cultured coconut milk is creamy and dreamy. It makes this velvety smooth, low sugar smoothie and it is fantastic. Every last bit of it. Fantastic. Slurp that smoothie down…it’s good for you. The bit of coconut flavor really played well with my tropical fruit blend. So much love.
This product is nutritionally sound too! A serving size is 4 ounces, or about 1/2 cup. This serving will dish you up 60 calories and 3.5 grams of fat. You will also be taking in 95 mg sodium and only 1 gram of sugar. LOVE IT! This product has no protein in it, but you do get 4 grams of filling fiber. If you need a protein boost…use a good and trusty protein powder. This product is cholesterol free, gluten-free, and vegan.
I can’t say enough good things about this product. I am over the moon for it. And I can’t wait to share what I did with the plain unsweetened either. Although the vanilla would have worked just as well too. I don’t think my fridge will ever be without this now. I am, above all else, hooked. Loving it! I promise…you will too!
