alpro soy milk and chocolate pudding


Ever since I ended my use of milk in tea (one of my best decisions ever, on many levels) and in that cutting my dairy intake drastically, I've also been using different kinds of vegetable based milk in baking and cooking which of course works a treat. But what I was looking for was THE perfect soy milk to make latte with (or, as I'm not to fussy when I'm at home and mostly drink tea anyway, and for tea honey is my friend not anything milky, on the odd occasion a nice cup of milky coffee).

My favourite place for soy latte is the coffee chain Espresso House - surprisingly good for a chain really, it also offers great places to have meetings and work with wi-fi - where they use this soy milk from Alpro. The professional package I haven't seen at the supermarket here, yet, this one I picked up on Åland (obviously a happening place in different ways). Haven't used it yet, but I hope my milky coffee at home will be nearly as excellent as the soy latte at Espresso House, no weird soy tang which is most often the case with soy latte etc.

Chocolate pudding has never been a favourite of mine, but I had to try this soy chocolate one and I have to say it's rather excellent, chocolatey and light, not very sweet, a nice treat.

Do you have any soy products or
other vegetable based milk ones that you recommend?

I don't like soy milk in tea - I find the taste too strong (but can't drink it black either). Almond or rice milk suit me better in tea. And I have a friend who swears by oat milk.

Oat milk!?! Haven't heard of that before. Not a fan of soy milk but daughter loves it in her chai-tea.

There's oal milk, almond milk, quinoa milk and what not apart from soy and rice milk.

A problem with soy milk is what happens to eat wheat heated, it's sort of coagulating, not fun atall.
Espresso house have award winning baristas, so no wonder they make good coffee! :)
