I was recently contacted Vivesoy to see if I wanted to try some of their soya milks. I much prefer dairy free milks, and tend to move between soya and almond milk depending on what I fancy (and what is on offer!).
They sent me the entire range and so for the past few weeks I have been working through them.
The light was great in pancake mix.
It also passed the tea test (no curdling). I hate it when they curdle, but in fact all the flavours I tried in tea (including vanilla) passed.
I liked the unsweetened one- I tend to choose this over sweetened anyway. It made a lovely hot chocolate and frothed up really nicely- soya milk is always so good when heated.
I was not so keen on the flavoured ones. The vanilla one made nice porridge (this was gingerbread style porridge), but seemed to have a funny after-taste. (I had it in the vanilla chai tea, but again it left a strange taste). When I checked the ingredients they do contain artificial sweeteners, which I try to avoid. I would rather have a little bit of sugar than some unpronounceable chemicals.
I really liked the natural and unsweetened ones (they also do a “light” one which was very sweet tasting), and so will keep an eye out for them.

Also a while ago I won some Coconom coconut sugar from Tamzin– I have not used any yet as I have an opened bag of some other coconut sugar, but with half term coming up in a week I shall be getting my bake on for sure!
I am off to Manchester this weekend, so any recommendations for things to check out let me know!
Have a lovely weekend. 🙂
