Product Review- MimicCreme

Now, I don't normally do reviews but I figured why not.

A few weeks ago I was doing my normal shopping at the Co-op and we needed evaporated milk for a creamy soup. Turns out they were out of it and I really did not want to cave and go for the full-fat cream monty. I get enough milk fats from cheese and whatnot, I can skip it in a soup that I will not miss it in. We ended up stumbling upon a product called MimicCreme non-dairy milk section. It is non-dairy, soy-free, and gluten free. The ingredients are simply Purified Water, Almonds, Cashews, Sodium Bicarbonate, Rice Starch, and Non-Iodized Salt. I was a little apprehensive and concerned that it would be a watery gross mess. It was not the case at all, creamy nice looking, and worked like a dream in our soup. It even fared well when the soup was frozen and then reheated. MimicCreme gets a firm thumbs up from our household and and is a nice healthy/different option for cooking. We have totally made repeat purchases of the product. My only complaint is that the unsweetened comes in a 32 oz container and sometimes it is a bit more than we need, but I just end up using it in coffee or in other projects.

I tried it in coffee and it grossed me out! You could see huge globs of fat floating at the top of the coffee. Yuk! Tasted horrible too. Maybe it's good in soup, but not coffee.
