Last week saw Rebel Kitchen’s announcement of their new ‘mylks’. SOW, of course we dashed out, to Waitrose to be precise, to get our hands on a few cartons to try.
Rebel Kitchen currently sell a range of tasty products, from yogurts to water, using coconut as their base and when we heard they were bringing out their own milk alternatives, with the aim of looking and tasting like ‘real’ milk, we couldn’t wait to get in on the action.
It took 2 trips to our local Waitrose, one day after the other, before we were successful in tracking some down. A very helpful store assistant ventured out into the stockroom to search for the desired newbies, as we couldn’t find them on the shelf and were quite determined not to return home empty-handed as we had the previous day.
The taste test:
For those not overly keen on the taste of coconut, it’s probably a no goer and, although this might seem an obvious thing to say considering it is coconut based, we have found other coconut milks slightly subtler.
However, for coconut fans, the whole mylk variety is a definite winner. It’s super creamy and lovely in a latte or your morning porridge. We tried it in porridge adding a dash of water to thin it out a little making the end result creamy and not needing further sweetening, added bonus.
The semi-skimmed, in our opinion, is perfect for tea as the coconut flavour isn’t overpowering and when we finally get our hands on the Skimmed mylk we imagine it being a good option for cereals, watch this space for an update.
Overall, we think this is a great milk alternative to add to an ever increasing list and a big winner for coconut lovers!
Go on, be a rebel and give them a try!
A major plus, and another reason to love Rebel Kitchen, is what they stand for. They are a certified B corporation, which means they meet the highest standards for social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency AND they are part of 1% For The Planet, a global network of businesses, nonprofits and individuals working together for a healthy planet. Definitely a company we feel proud to support! You can read more about them here.
Stay tuned for the opinion of our mini tasters on next Thursday’s taste test on this one.
If you still have questions about dairy alternatives or want help in finding the right one for you, why not join us on Thursday 7 September for The Udder Truth, where we will be having our own taste tests for milk alternatives and many other dairy products.
