Vance's Darifree Fake Milk

Recommended Posts

Our local co-op does not require you to be a member to shop there, but I understand some do. I'd call first and check before making a trip. With ours, membership gets you a discount on certain days, and a little more "validity" in input - when a member asks them to carry specific items, they are more likely to jump on it and get them in, knowing that the person shops there regularly. Also, I can order special things through the co-op, like if I wanted a case of Vance's Darifree and ordered it through the co-op, if they give any "business" or quantity discounts, I would get that. Also split the cost of shipping with any order that the co-op was placing, instead of having to pay all the shipping myself. And our co-op works with the local farmers, so again if I want something special in quantity, I can ask and the co-op might be able to get a better price than if I just tried to buy it myself. I think the co-op is a good idea, and try to support it by being a member. If it wasn't local though, I probably wouldn't join. Just purchase occassionally when I was in the area.

Debmidge--I don't think it tastes exactly like milk--but I like it very much. It (to my taste) is a bit sweeter than milk. The thickness (texture) is more like regular whole milk. It is great for things that you don't mind adding a little bit of sweetness to. Sometimes I use it dry--like a non-dairy creamer in my hot tea. It makes it nice and creamy--lots better than the thinner rice and almond milks. It also makes great cocoa, and I think it would be good on cereals. I don't use it in my mashed potatoes, though. Mix it up and I think you'll be pleased! :)

That's so nice of you! :D

My dd likes it on her cereal. It's also good in blended, iced coffee recipes. I also use Vance's for my soups such as potato, cream of broccoli, gluten-free cream of mushroom etc. I also like it as a cream base for pasta dishes. I can use the powder with oil, vinegar, and spices to make creamy vinegrette dressings. Here recently I used the powder with mustard etc. to make a dressing for potato salad. My dd can't have mayo and the salad was awesome. :)

It was a godsend for me only because I can't tolerate soy or rice milks. I can do almond milk, but because of the nutty taste, it's not suited to certain things. Not that I was a milk drinker to begin with! It is just perfect for me for the times I need a creamy ingredient. Now, if they would just carry it in more stores....

My dd is allergic to soy milk and almond milk. I'm not a milk drinker but my dd will drink Vance's by the glass. I can even dilute it some and she enjoys it. I really like being able to control the consitancy of the milk. We do coconut milk, rice milk and Vance's. I use them all and rotate them as I need.

I haven't got to try to the Vance's ice cream recipes yet because I'm almost out. I hope to try it this weekend. I'll be sure to post how it goes! :D

Miss Roben's has a ice cream mix that uses Vance's that you might want to check out. I prefer to use organic ingredients when at all possible so I'll probably just make my own. :)

Kasey's mom--I will be looking forward to see how the ice cream recipe goes--it's been a long time since I've had ice cream (sorbets are good, but not the same). I see you use it for soups--I am thinking I can use it then for scalloped potatoes--very possibly tonight w/chicken! Thanks again for all of your good ideas :)

Additional Questions:

1) After I make it, I store in refrigerator - how long does it last?

2) It is best tasting right after it's made?

3) Does anyone get any gut reactions (non celiac reactions) from it?

I agree w/Patti ~ my daughter doesn't really care for it to drink straight, but loves it in things. It definitely is sweeter than milk. I usually make a cup w/the creamer recipe (1c. hot water to 1/3c DF) every morning. Use most of it to make a smoothie for her and then use whatever is left in my coffee or hot chocolate.

I also bake w/it. Our new favorite bread recipe has it in it and last night I made some cupcakes w/it too.

Acording to thier web site, it lasts 1 year unmade, and 1 week made.

THE DIARY FREE STUFF IS HERE!!!!!! CANT WIAT TO TRY IT IN SOMETHING. MIGHT TURN ON THE A/C SO I CAN HAVE HOT COCOA LOL!!! :lol:

Wow--that got there fast!! Well, it turned out perfect because today's your birthday--another present :D ! Hope you enjoy it--do make the cocoa--I do it with pure cocoa powder, sugar and the milk. It's so good. If you make up a pitcher-full, be sure to mix very well--use the hot water method on the label--it tends to want to clump on the bottom. Have fun--enjoy the rest of your day, and let me know how it goes! :)
