Default soya milk

It never occurred to me to try soya milk... I'd always assumed it would taste awful.
But I was looking for almond milk in my mini-Tesco, and couldn't find it, but saw the soya, so thought I'd just check out the nutrition label.

WOW.... 0.1g carbohydrate per 100ml??? It had to be tried.

So Im drinking a glass of it now and it tastes pretty good. You just have to get the idea out of your head that it tastes like cow's milk, cos it doesn't, but it still tastes nice. I haven't tried it in tea yet... that'll be the next test. But I think it will be fab with my 'chai tea' flavour sugar-free syrup.

By the way, the one I'm referring to is the Alpro Light (unsweetened) soya milk. Even the 'subtly sweet' (as it said on the label) was lower carb than cow's milk, but I decided to go for this one instead.

Starbucks, Costa, Sainsburys and M&S will all make you a soya latte(go for the smallest size). Not as low as the milk you are drinking but a good filler upper when you are out shopping.

I knew they did soya milk lattes, but i had no idea how NICE soya milk would be!! So yes, I'm definitely going to try that next time i'm desperate for a coffee!

Even my partner, who is fussy about food, really liked the soya milk.

I am using Tesco Value unsweetened soya milk in my teas and coffees. Recently also started making my own version of a Frappuccino which I could drink every day - to die for <3
