I’ve been meaning to post a review for AGES… I got sent some Rice Dream on June 4 and was asked very nicely to share my thoughts on it… and I never got round to it. Oops.
But as I suddenly remembered… here are those thoughts, such as they are… 🙂
I’m sure most UK readers have tried Rice Dream before but as I’d only ever had the original version, I was interested in these:
I used both, in smoothies…
And as my main use for milk is in tea and coffee, a lot of these:
And both were great. I remember the original being nice but slightly watery but neither the organic nor the calcium one was at all. I don’t like sugar in tea or coffee but the slight sweetness from this wasn’t off-putting and might be a real bonus for someone trying to stop having sugar in hot drinks…
I have to say I couldn’t tell any taste difference between the two but then I didn’t try both at the same time; I opened one carton once I’d finished the other… not the most scientific of approaches!
But definitely a good choice for someone who wants to avoid dairy and doesn’t want soya milk. The enriched version has almost as much calcium as semi-skimmed dairy milk and although neither has nearly as much protein, both are slightly lower in fat and have a higher carbohydrate content, less of which sugars.
One other noteworthy thing from today though, was a continued quest to make the perfect GF chocolate chip cookie, for the cafe. He sells mahowsive giant ones at the moment, so mine were no tinies either:
Oh, and in case you thought otherwise, that’s no side plate… 🙂
Recipe to come once it’s perfected!
Thank you very much to Rice Dream! Have you tried rice milk, especially the other flavours of Rice Dream? What’s your favourite dairy-free milk?
