an amazing new alternative to milk

The woman in front of me in the grocery store line was fascinated.
"What's that?" she said, "I've never seen that before."
Me: "My acupuncturist just told me about it. It's a milk alternative, made from coconut and unsweetened."
She: "Wow, that sounds great."
Me "I'm really excited to try it. I don't do dairy or soy."
She: "And rice milk just doesn't do it."
Me: "That's right. And we won't even go into the atrocious hemp milk I tried the other day..."

I'm happy to say that the So Delicious Coconut Milk beverage completely lives up to my expectations. A clean taste, not too coconutty, would be an excellent substitute for milk. I tried the unsweetened one. Look for it in the dairy case, next to the soy milk.

I'm so excited, I can make smoothies again!

Also on the site they have coconut-based yogurt, will have to see if Whole Foods has that too. That's another thing I miss...

I had written previously about the health benefits of coconut, here is some info from their site on the topic: My acupuncturist says that the fatty acids in coconut are very good for health. However I can only eat so much coconut curry, it's nice to have a different way to get coconut into my diet...
