So Delicious Coconut Milk Beverage Review

So Delicious Coconut MilkTurtle Mountain, makers of So Delicious products and Purely Decadent Ice Cream, are releasing a new non-dairy alternative to milk, So Delicious Coconut Milk. I was beyond excited to review this and it was one of the rare times I actually contacted a company to get a sample of a product since it's not in stores yet.

I'm lactose intolerant, and have had to be a lot more vigilant about it lately. I was actually using Rice Dream Rice Drink, when So Delicious Coconut Milk showed up on my doorstep. I tried it out the next morning with a bowl of cereal (Honey Nut Cheerios if you're curious - thought it would be something more exciting didn't ya!) and it rocks!

Honey Nut Cheerios and So Delicious Coconut Milk

There is NO odd taste or off-flavors and just a light hint of sweetness. It was a little more flavorful than Rice Dream, and I totally love it. In addition to being dairy free, So Delicious Coconut milk is also soy free and certified gluten free. I've had it with my cereal every morning for the last 5 days and have been nothing but pleased.

A 1 cup serving of So Delicious Coconut Milk provides 80 calories, 5 grams of total fat, all of which are saturated Medium Chain Fatty Acids (a 'good' fat). There is also 6 grams of sugars, no fiber and 1 gram of protein. Additionally, there is 50% of daily recommendations for vitamin B12, 30% for vitamin D and 10% for calcium, magnesium and vitamin A. The unsweetened version only has 50 calories per cup and the Vanilla flavor has 90 calories.

The ingredients are coconut cream (water, coconut, guar gum), organic evaporated cane juice, calcium phosphate, magnesium phosphate, carrageenan, vitamin A palmitate, vitamin D-2, L-selenomethionine (Selenium), Zinc Oxide, Folic Acid, vitamin B-12.

The suggested retail price is $4.49 for a half gallon, which makes it just a little more expensive than Silk Soymilk or Rice Dream, but it is totally worth it. I'm thrilled to have found another alternative for us lactose intolerant folks ... and for anybody looking to cut out some calories, this is a great alternative lower calorie alternative to milk.
