I tried So Delicious Coconut Milk Beverage this week. It wasn't bad, but not as delicious and coconut-y as I was hoping . I guess that's why it's a "beverage" and not "milk." I admittedly haven't tried it with too much - just in some breakfast quinoa (that worked well) and hot tea (not so well - same weird taste as soy). I still want to try it in coffee, and I could see it working in some other recipes. I admittedly haven't been drinking it too much, because I've been focused on my new lover:

If you can't read it, that's Pacific Natural Foods Hazelnut Milk, with chocolate. This stuff is delicious. It essentially tastes like Nutella chocolate milk, no off-tastes. At 120 calories and 5 grams of fat for an 8-ounce glass, I think it saves you a little, but not a ton. It's a great dairy alternative, but I'm guessing not that great for nut allergies. I'm sure you could use it to add a little something to some baking recipes, like these Nutella cupcakes or these Nutella cupcakes (gluten-free!). I was also avoiding alcohol last week, but it was really hard to resist topping a glass with Frangelico or Bailey's. That experiment will be in my future.
(I feel compelled to mention that Kevin and I were both quite impressed that I took a picture of myself pouring a beverage without spilling any of it.)
