Vegan Product Review: My Favorite Non-Dairy Milk! Silk Nutchello


One of the hardest parts of being a vegan, is figuring out what stuff is worth buying. Do these vegan products taste like what you grew up with?  While I have only been vegan for a relatively short time, I was mostly vegetarian for a very long time.  So I can still remember the taste and texture of dead animals (not very appealing when you think of it that way, is it?) enough to know if these faux versions are any good.  (I bought this item myself. No one is paying me for this review.)

Todays Subject for Review: Silk Nutchello

Does it Taste Like Dairy Milk:  No, it tastes so much better!  I am quite literally obsessed with this stuff.   Its viscosity is similar to dairy milk.  It has a smooth clean taste, not too nutty or with too strong of a coconut taste.

I use the Silk Toasted Coconut + Cashews Nutchello when I need a plain non-dairy milk for cooking. It's also what my Hubby prefers to drink.

I like the Silk Caramel Almonds + Cashews Nutchello to drink.  I could drink the whole bottle in one sitting, it's that amazing.  It's sweet, but not too sweet.  Something about it reminds me of drinking Kahlua and cream.  Which I haven't done in over twenty years, so maybe I'm remembering it wrong...

The Silk Rick Dark Chocolate + Walnuts Nutchello is like drinking liquid chocolate pudding. Literally.  I have it in place of dessert when I run out of my favorite ice cream.

Will Dairy Milk Drinkers Drink It:  Yes, I think not only will they like it, but they'll be surprised at how good it is.

Is it Healthier?:  Yes.  (As per their site) Compared to dairy milk, it has 50% more calcium, no cholesterol, lower calories, and less fat.  And as per my own research (references to studies not
that were not dairy-industry funded can be provided) dairy milk has been linked to obesity, dementia, depression, osteoporosis and its production is directly linked to the destruction of our environment and a lifetime of torture, abuse and misery for cows.  Go ahead and Google "dairy industry abuse."

Would I Buy it Again:  Um...Hell yeah!  I buy it all the time.  I know this is a little more expensive than other non-dairy milk.  For me. it's worth it, because I just love how amazing they taste.  If I have to use a lot of unsweetened non-dairy milk for a recipe, I'll buy whatever is on sale.  Or I'll whip up a batch of soy milk.  It's also more expensive than a gallon of milk, I get that.  But, considering the health benefits and the lack of animal cruelty, it's worth it.

  2. The writer has perfectly mentioned about the vegan chocolates. I trully admire the opinions given here. There are a lot of vegan chocolate suppliers available now and that is the reason I get the best vegan chocolate dishes ready.
